This custom residence was the first “ground-up” spec home for A Finer Touch Construction. One of their main goals was to create a home that is unique from all of the others in the greater Phoenix area. The builder wanted a single-story home with large ceilings throughout and so the heights range could from 22 feet in the entry to 10 feet in the secondary bedrooms. An open floor plan with a nice “flow” was a must. They designed incredibly wide but minimal hallways.
One of my favorite features is the master suite. The master closet is the largest secondary room in the home, outside of the master bedroom itself. The master bathroom features 12 foot ceilings with an incredibly large walk-in shower.
This home is so perfect that as soon the builder posted a rendering of the home and the current floor plan, a young family saw it and jumped on the opportunity to purchase the home. They were able to make some personal touches to the interior.
Read on and get to know more details shared by the builder.
Custom Single-story Home
From the Builder: “You’ll note the “stacked and staggered” exterior, so that the stone always makes a clean return into the house to eliminate exposed cuts. The balcony is strictly for aesthetics and is not accessible. This design element gave us a 22-foot ceiling in the entry when you walk through the front door. We designed the roof to be constructed of black concrete tile and the black windows were purchased from Sierra Pacific. Our trim shop built the custom wood entry door and we installed custom can lights in the soffit for accent lighting. The main exterior house is constructed with white synthetic stucco and white Texas limestone. And to top it all off, our clients were amazing to work with and we are so happy that they are enjoying their new home!”
This double entry door and custom trim work makes quite the statement entry. Front door paint color is Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams.
The front doors open to a gorgeous foyer with crisp white paint color; Dunn Edwards White Pickett Fence DET 648.
Lighting is Shades of Light, Be Squared Modern Chandelier.
“The entry of this gorgeous custom home is everything we could have asked for; simple, yet welcoming. The ceilings are 22 feet high with the drop down black light fixtures and a large double black entry door. Wood flooring throughout with wall trim and sconces.”
Sconces are Cedar & Moss Wyatt Sconce.
Bench is Flanders Bench from Jason Home. Similar woven leather bench can be found here.
A piano room is located just off the entry. The mid-century chaise is from West Elm.
Flooring is Provenza Floors – Heirloom -Liverpool, with oil finish – 6.25″ W.
This is the ultimate in kitchen design! I truly feel inspired by every detail. This kitchen features Wolf Subzero appliances, custom built island and hood and decorative 14-foot ceiling.
Counterstools are Bailey Woven Stool from Ballard Designs.
All of the countertops are Cambria Swanbridge (throughout the entire house – 9 slabs in total). The backsplash is chevron patterned marble.
Sconces can be found here.
Lighting is Gabby Lighting’s Adler chandelier – no longer available in brass – only in bronze.
There are 3 decorative “X” ceilings spaced evenly throughout the great room and kitchen. The ceilings are 14 feet to the peak and 12 feet to the soffit.
Black Kitchen Island Paint Color

All of the kitchen cabinetry ranges from 9 to 10 feet tall.

A large great room is the perfect place to entertain friends and family. The great room features 14 foot decorative ceilings and black accent walls on either side of the Isokern fireplace selected by the interior designer. The columns and fireplace are then fully wrapped in custom trim work. And to top it off, you’ll see the 25-foot automated multi-slide pocket door, wood flooring and custom light fixtures.
I am loving the simplicity of the mid-century inspired furniture.

“When we designed this floor plan, a large great room with access to the backyard was super important to us. It made this home perfect to entertain and hold large family gatherings.”
This large great room features two distinct sitting areas.
Great Room Doors
Patio Doors: “We received a lot of messages about our custom multi-slider and what it looked like “open”. This door consisted of 5 panels, each just under 5 feet wide. The total opening is 24 feet wide and 10 feet tall. You’ll notice that the doors fully pocket into the wall to really create the ideal indoor/outdoor living.”
“X-Men the ceiling”, as appropriately named by the photographer. The visual symmetry of this ceiling is even better in person. The framers took three days to lay out this ceiling on the floor. The entire room had chalk dust as the framers ensured that every soffit and decorative X were perfectly lined up. They built the entire ceiling in sections on the floor before we it was raised and attached to the trusses and exterior walls. It truly was a work of art. The drywallers, electricians, trim carpenters, and painters then followed with precise craftsmanship to the image you see here.
Powder Room: “There is a touch of Gold all throughout this home. In this powder bathroom you’ll find it at the cabinet hardware, plumbing fixtures, door hardware, light fixtures, bath accessories, and also the mirror frames. The powder room also features floor to ceiling white shiplap on all four walls, the interior door painted charcoal gray, and cement tile floor with quartz counters.”

From the builder: “It’s rare that we have the opportunity to build a laundry room that is one of the prettiest rooms in the house. One of our favorite details in this laundry room is the wallpaper chosen by our designers.
The Benjamin Moore Forest Green and Cambria quartz countertop are also a fun element. The dedicated laundry also serves as a craft room with double desk cabinets and computer hookups.
Kids Desk Area
In lieu of a standard storage closet, the interior designer and builder reconfigure this location for the kids homework area. They installed floating cabinetry with matching uppers and then prewired low voltage for the computer stations. And of course, wood flooring throughout.
Brass Flushmount Lighting: West Elm.
Master Bedroom Fireplace: “One of our favorite features in this master bedroom is the Basalt stone fireplace surround selected by the interior designer. The black wood beams in the ceiling continue our black/white theme throughout this custom home. Another fun feature is the decorative bookcase on either side of the fireplace.”

Tub Filler: Jacobean Exposed Tub & Hand Shower Set – Wall Mount BRASSTECH-Newport Brass.
Freestanding tub can be found here.
Rug is from Etsy.
Shower: “This is the ultimate Shower! One of the key components in this master bath was the large master shower, capped off with 12-foot ceilings and a dry-off area. Our interior then hit a homerun with their product selections. The colors, layout and patterns all tied in perfectly. They had tremendous vision when putting these choices together. One of our favorite elements is the gold trim all around the shower, soap niche, and curb. The Newport brass plumbing fixtures, Cambria quartz shower bench, and black shower frame were the cherry on top. One side note is that we installed the right tile wall 3 times. The first install had the tiles spaced incorrectly that created a small sliver of tile when butted against the left wall. We had our subcontractor remove the tile and on the second install, the tile was crooked and falling to the right. However, as they say, the “third time is the charm” and this time, it was approved.”
Floor tile is Bianco Carrara Hexagon Marble Mosaic.
“The perfect wall mount sink for the ideal boy’s bathroom! I love the chiseled “floor to ceiling” white wall tile and the black and white concrete tile floor.

Sconces are from Etsy.

The rest of the patio has black slate installed in a herringbone pattern. The interior of the home has engineered wood flooring. Great design choices and color palette.”
Gorgeous stone patio with grass. Gorgeous!

This entire backyard was perfectly designed.
