Kirby Residence
by Alfred Newman Beadle

Kirby House by Al Beadle in Clearwater Hills The Kirby House was built in the exclusive gated community of Clearwater Hills. A large master suite, hidden behind the Saguaro, was added by another architect in the 1990s. The southern face of the Beadle Box echoes many of the classic forms found in Beadle's White Gates and Healy/Fearnow Residence.
