Paradise Valley’s #1 Selling New Build Custom Gated Community

Walking into the first Cullum Home model you will be greeted by Scott Grigg, designated Listing Agent for the development, and/or one of his professional team members. Scott is one of Phoenix’s top producing realtors and a Paradise Valley luxury home expert so you know you are in professional hands. As Scott walks you just a few steps into the first model you will instantly notice the attention to every detail from the selection and installation of the kitchen countertops, cabinets, distressed wide wood plank flooring, kitchen tile backsplash, top-of-the-line Viking appliances, well thought out functional floor plan and use of the Savant state-of-the-art integrated technology to manage the entire home. The models are truly a reflection of Rod Cullum’s more than 25 years experience in building many of Paradise Valley’s most cherished custom estates.

he first time you approach the guard house of The Village at Paradise Reserve, a smile will appear on your face and a sense of serenity will fill your body. Your eyes will eagerly search for what lies

beyond the gates as all your senses tell you something magnificent is ahead. As you pull up to the guard station, John, or one of his 3 associates, greets you with a welcoming smile and kind directions to your destination. Pulling up to the gates past the guard house you will pause for a moment to breathe in all the natural beauty. The gentle rolling hills, lush desert mountain backdrop, custom hand made iron gates, well manicured 16 | HOMES & LIFESTYLE media 8 | HOMES & LIFESTYLE media

rolling grass landscape, colorful flowers, plants hugging the streets and walk ways all come together harmoniously. Turning left up to the two Cullum Home models your heart will start to pound and your mind will fill with thoughts of why you have to have a home here. It is obvious to you why The Village at Paradise Reserve is the #1 selling new construction, single family, lock & leave, guard gated community in all of Paradise Valley.

Our new home buyers want more freedom for travel & leisure, less home maintenance, an overall lower cost to enjoy their home and the security of living in a guard-gated community.”

POOL IN THE SKY Paradise Valley’s Highest Elevation Pool by Brett Benning

When you first see this pool your senses are overwhelmed by the near 360 degree views overlooking the city of Paradise Valley and beyond. As you take in the pool, spa, deck and landscape you start to ask yourself “How in the world did they build this pool on the side of this mountain with no backyard access?” Gas-fed firepot feature

Only after I met with Chris Griffin, Founder & President of Unique Landscapes & Pools, did I start to understand how he and his team built this home owner's paradise. Chris shared with me that hundreds of hours of manual labor, 300 loads of dirt & rock and 1.5 miles of structural steel rebar were just a few of the elements that came

Lathing concrete over the Rebar

Applying the pebble interior

together to create this stunning Paradise Valley resident’s “Pool in the Sky.” Chris explained how many challenges this project presented including the fact even his excavation equipment had to go through the estate to dig the pool. To make the process consume even more time, concrete trucks had to drive up the hill in half loads due to the driveway’s steep elevation. Amazingly this project only took 90 days total including 2 weeks of excavation.

Amazing Results!

In the past few years there has been a huge shift in local kitchen trends from the overall design, functionality, size, materials, appliances and style of cabinets. To shed some light on questions about these new trends I reached out to Dennis White, President of Cabinets by C&F. Brett: What are some of the new trends in kitchen remodels? Dennis: Mixing countertop materials like wood, granite & metal is popular. Brett: Why do you think these trends have become so popular? Dennis: In an effort to make the spaces more comfortable, casual & functional, different types of counter tops perform well for differing tasks. Brett: What is the most requested feature, item or style in the past three months?

Dennis: Interior accessories are the buzz for kitchen & bath remodeling in 2013. Islands are still the most requested item by far, with rollouts, pullout interior accessories, and large drawers following closely. Over 60% of all the kitchens we design and install are European and/or Contemporary in style. These styles are known for their clean lines and use of unique materials.

Brett: How do you think the economy has driven some of these new trends? Dennis: While caution about the new economy has kept the footprint of the kitchen & bath the same, with few opting to expand their space, the quality of the space to be remodeled with relation to additional functionality & comfort has grown in desirability. Brett: Is technology playing a bigger role in the kitchen? Dennis: While only 14% of the kitchen respondents list Hi-Tec as their primary goal in their remodel, 81% list functionality to include new LED lighting in under the cabinet and interior applications, which are new to the consumer in 1/2" wide continuous “tape” lighting which have an almost unlimited lifespan. Also prominent are touch control & programmable appliances of which 66% of consumers surveyed stress Energy Star rating as being highest priority.
