The next house we visited on the Phoenix Home and Garden tour required us to go up a bit into the McDowell Mountain foothills.
Then once we got there we had to go down a rather steep driveway (you can see the edge of it to the middle right of this photo) to get to the entrance.
After we arrived at the base of the driveway, we went through the arched entrance to a rather splendid courtyard complete with a fountain. This was another rather large house this one in a Spanish style.
The pool area had some pretty spectacular views over the valley below. They would have been even more spectacular if it hadn't been such an overcast day. It looks like you could swim to the edge of this pool and stop to admire the view before returning. Very nice.
