The home at 5701 N. Stanton in the Mesa Hills neighborhood is a charming yet luxurious, contemporary Spanish/Mediterranean-style home. This adorable home was purchased about a year ago by attorney Michael Zimprich as an investment property. He spent a year renovating the house, replacing everything from the flooring to the plumbing. The result is a blend of one-of-a-kind architectural attributes and contemporary features which co-mingle beautifully to create a sumptuous sanctuary in the city.

“It had a lot of potential, it just hadn’t been updated at all,” he said. The more than 3,000-square foot dream home is nestled among the foothills of the majestic Franklin Mountains. It has a striking view of the mountains, Mt. Cristo Rey and west El Paso. Natural ivory tones beautifully offset coffee colored trim, stair railing and a slate stone wall on the face of the house. The entryway is topped with a barrel vaulted ceiling comprised of marbled brick in a palette of earthy pale grays, muted browns and creams. Rich dark brown curved roof tiles accentuate the pitched roof. Chic, modern stainless steel light fixtures add a touch of polished elegance throughout the home. The kitchen has been modernized with stainless steel appliances, simple yet stylish dark wood cabinets and highlighted by a slate stone wall. Granite counter tops lend an elegant flair. The clean lines and open floor plan of this kitchen are perfect for busy moms preparing a quick meal, or enterprising chefs whipping up a five-star meal. Zimprich said part of the kitchen renovations included adding semipanoramic windows that open up the room, allowing it to be flooded with natural light.

A resplendent view of the natural desert landscape that adorns Mt. Cristo Rey, all the way to the lush scenery of the Upper Valley, is the perfect backdrop for this kitchen and dining area. “We flipped the placement of the sink and put in some windows to make use of the view,” he said. The open floor plan of the living area allows for maximum feng shui. A beautiful vaulted ceiling with dark wood beams creates an airy feel, perfect for those lazy summer days and chilly winter nights. A loft overlooks the living area and is perfect for a home library. Builtin shelving and nooks line the main wall of this plush, cozy space. The bedrooms are average-sized and charming. The master suite has a gorgeous mountain view and looks out over the backyard. A charming little balcony off the bedroom provides a perfect cove for morning coffee or a sunset sanctuary. The walk-in closet is every woman’s dream, with ample space for cocktail dresses, shoes and accessories. The master bathroom has a huge walk-in shower with earth-toned gray, cream and soft brown-colored tile. Multiple shower heads ensure no one is left in the cold. A two-sink vanity with wall-to-wall bathroom mirrors give the space a fresh, classic look. This beautifully modernized home is the perfect refuge for city dwelling.
