Property descriptionThe Zen Home was thoughtfully and meticulously designed with the principles of the Feng Shui Bagua Map using 300-year-old posts and beams that secure all nine centers of the dwelling support. There is a large quartz crystal encased in a copper chamber next to the fireplace in the living room that is connected to the rebar in the foundation of the house. This universal crystal was used in the house for its beneficial uses of manifesting healing, meditation and protection, as well as a purifier of negative energy. The massive hand-carved wood doors with its life giving support symbols enrich the living experience. The Zen like patios with hanging beds, and wood-carved screens integrate the indoor spaces with much greenery and refreshing visuals. The gardens, the pool, the guest house
the Kiva and the privacy of this 1.33-acre lot invite you to spend time outdoors enjoying the majestic redrock views. Used as a retreat house and vacation rental for many years, and with recurring customers. Huge multi-purpose meeting room stands across main house. Wood and flagstone floors in all the house with radiant heating. Exquisite rock work in bathrooms, fireplaces, kitchen and other rooms. Solar heated pool. For an accurate description of this sacred space and this one of a kind home please continue reading the words of the architect.
Architect Paul Froncek discusses architecture:
When it was built in the high desert 25 years ago, it was called Southwestern Zen, but experiencing it over a quarter century, I see the house as distinctly Primitive Modern not unlike houses I built in Chicago. This house is timeless. Timeless structures are built on principles, not contrived by style or whim. That is why they endure and remain relevant.
The original house was built on a most auspicious knoll with sweeping views of the red rock canyons formed by millennia of erosion. In the mid 90's the current owner purchased the traditional 1970s house and built on the existing concrete pad with a new post and beam structure. The heavy timber structure was inspired by the acquisition of a trove of salvaged fir posts and beams. The 300-year plus massive beams were rescued from being underwater for more than 100 years. They belonged to a railroad tresses bridge that collapsed into the Great Salt Lake in Utah. Wherever possible, we have preserved the existing salt water cured patina on all the sides of the timbers. There is no stain that replicates the patina of cured and aged wood. The primitive modern palette is composed of natural, indigenous simplicity. The oversized structure allows for the spans and cantilevers that give the dwelling a presence and stature, unequaled by stick frame construction. There are classic principles of structure that inform the lines of the exterior. It is up to the architect, relying on his own humanity to render the interior gracious. Home is both where we shelter from reality and encounter consciousness.
