Designed by one of Arizona’s most influential architects, artist Bill Tull. Appropriately named “Casa de Sombra”, this special residence exudes the warmth and authentic charm of the Southwest. The home is nestled on a 1.77 acre corner lot with desert landscape, horse privileges and mountain views. A front courtyard with Flagstone patio and Kiva fireplace leads you to the entry of the home and truly sets the setting to this tranquil estate.
Located off the entry, the formal living room is the perfect place to entertain with exquisite detail and an abundance of charm. Natural wood burning fireplace for the cold winter nights. Dramatic Viga with herring bone latillas ceiling, Flagstone flooring, and high ceilings grace the room. A curved Banco seating design offers great space for dining or sitting down for a friendly game of cards.
Chef â€™s will delight in this kitchen with large center island, hand crafted wood doors, and Oak plank flooring. A more informal living space adjoins the room with fireplace, wood paned window and media built-in niches.
A rare basement offers a cool place to enjoy entertaining with family and friends during the summer months with large wet bar. An office, bathroom, and wine storage area completes the area.
The spacious master suite has Viga ceiling, Oak plank floors, wood burning fireplace, and large wood pane window with wood shutter to block out the light when it is time for a good night rest. The private bathroom includes a Jacuzzi tub, dual sinks and decorative tile accents.
There are three secondary bedrooms each with their own character and charm including Viga beam ceiling and Oak plank flooring. Two of the bedrooms are ensuite with private bathrooms.
Outdoor living offers the serenity of the desert with Flagstone sitting areas, desert landscape, mountain views, and large pool and spa.

The Designer Listed in “The ‘A’ List: Icons of Arizona Architecture by Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine (Jan. 2010)
William (Bill) F. Tull (1924-2000) Birthplace: Normal, Illinois Schooling: Tull studied art (including two years of architecture) at the University of Illinois. Inspiration: In childhood, Tull was fascinated with the culture of the Southwest, and finally settled in Arizona as an adult. He was an advertising executive and an artist before becoming an architectural designer and builder of adobe homes. His designs incorporated Pueblo, Moorish and Territorial influences, and often featured handcrafted elements such as carved corbels, decorative tin cabinet fronts and stained glass. Hallmarks of residential designs: • Use of natural materials • Ceilings accented with vigas and latillas • Adobe walls with rounded corners • Sculptural fireplaces • Varied wall heights • Twists and turns • Small windows • Saguaro rib detailing Contributions/claims to fame: He played a significant role in changing Arizona rules that prevented building with adobe. The new adobe bricks he helped popularize no longer contained straw, which was replaced with an asphalt emulsion that satisfied Maricopa County and various cities’ concerns about adobe’s stability. Tull was selected as a Phoenix Home & Garden Master of the Southwest in 1990. Other talents/hobbies: Known for his spare, bold paintings, Tull was an accomplished artist as well as an architect.
