The family that rides together thrives together in this citrus grove abode.
In the historical orange groves of East Mesa, a family of six enjoys an estate-size home that celebrates family traditions and French connections; their love of horses; and a commitment to the finest details of workmanship and design.
On 5.5 acres with decades-old orange trees, the East Mesa campus includes a 12,000-sq.-ft. three-level main house and a 1,200-sq.-ft. guest house, a resort-size pool and ramadas, an expansive back lawn (for a future horse barn) and a children’s playground with an in-ground trampoline.
"This beautiful home is a unique and detailed residence—one of a kind," says Tony Sutton, president and owner of Scottsdale interior design firm Est Est. Participating with him in the home's design were company designers Julie White and Kacie Moore. In 2001, Sutton began working with the clients and Phoenix architect Mark Fredstrom. Construction began in spring 2005, with completion in fall 2006.
