Cullum Homes‘ new model residences, which start at $1.5 million, range from 3,320 to 5,590 square feet and display such cutting-edge features as the latest aesthetic trends, impressive energy conservation, and iPad “smart home” technology.
Tucked away in Paradise Valley near Lincoln and 40th Street is the Paradise Reserve community — an area long appreciated for the privacy it can offer, as well as its close proximity to mountain preserves, parks, country clubs, and some of the best resorts, spas and golf courses Phoenix has to offer. The Village at Paradise Reserve, being built exclusively by Cullum Homes, will be comprised of 32 unique and luxurious residences, and both single and two-story floor plans are available.
A tour of the model homes at The Village reveals just how much a home here can offer. Those with contemporary personal style will feel right at home in the Vista “Urban Transitions” home model, which utilizes clean lines, natural and organic textures, stacked light stone and pale woods. Creams, neutrals, sea glass pastels and chocolate-glazed bisque cabinetry round out the rest of the interior’s color palette. If your preferences skew toward a style that’s more rustic and a touch European, however, you’ll fall in love with the Courtyard “Mediterranean Nouveau” model, which has Tuscan architectural elements incorporated into its design. The hardwood floors, reclaimed brick, tumbled stone, alder cabinetry and warm colors combine to create a space that’s warm and inviting yet undeniably modern.
Plus, you’ll be dying to try out the gourmet kitchen, outfitted with custom-colored Rysso-Peters cabinetry, Viking ranges, and beautiful granite countertops in polished, honed and leather finishes … And then there are the views. Taking advantage of the neighborhood’s best asset (location, location, location), the models feature plenty of extra-large and well-placed windows to show off the amazing views of Camelback Mountain, Piestewa Peak, the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, and the nighttime skyline of downtown Phoenix.
Some of the sustainable and high-tech convenience features of the homes include: electric car plug-ins in the garages, LED lighting that’s three times more efficient than the use of CFL bulbs, an ultra-efficient heating and air cooling system with a programmable thermostat in each bedroom and living area, low-flow toilets and fixtures, low VOC paints and thermally protected windows.
And techies will surely geek out over the results of the collaboration among Cullum Homes, Cyber Sound and Savant, which includes the launching of a neighborhood-wide integration of Apple-based home automation systems. The Savant system enables home owners to manage lighting, climate control, motorized window shades, security, home theater, audio, internet and other functions via wall-mounted and wireless iPad, iPod and iPhone devices. The Village at Paradise Reserve will be the first subdivision in Arizona to utilize this kind of technology across an entire community.
