The desert modern of competitive racecar driver Casey Mears listed in the middle of last month, priced at $5.1 million. The house received a serious offer within two weeks—likely at ask or above.
Located in the Sundown Ranchos community, the 2018-built home has, yes, location to help it find a new owner. The house also has an interior design style that’s remarkably effective, merging reclaimed hand-hewn ceiling timber and hand-carved wood with steel-framed windows and doors, bright white walls and ceilings, and natural-toned, satin-finish wide-plank for a whole that’s poised somewhere between pueblo and high modern. The kitchen is similarly artfully simple, with shaker cabinetry and floating shelves; a butler’s door opens to a large pantry.
A small courtyard with a fireplace, a half-court and a pool and patio offer outdoor consolations, and the property includes a large 2-bay garage that’s large enough to accommodate a pair of RVs.
