Sale Pending 10/14 Swanky Old Town Scottsdale Condo

Postby nichefindyours » Sun Sep 24, 2006 11:33 pm

Some of you were lucky enough to get a sneak peek over the last few days at our newly completed Granada Resort Condo. It was a very long summer but it’s finally done and we’re really excited with the results and sharing them with the Modern Phoenix community.

A design collaboration of the entire Niche team, we’re proud to offer the Granada Unit #9 located in the Granada Resort community in Old Town Scottsdale. This is a 2 bedroom 1 bath, approx 1000 s.f. unit. Many of you recall pics of Tiffany, my Bro Sal, & I doing a little DIY months back. We lived through coughing drywall dust, sneezing brown & black substances, & scrubbing off paint in your leg hairs for hours. That’s all behind us and the results you’ll see in these pictures:

Having seen the place and knowing where Scottsdale is going with this... plus the attractive median home price for a seriously great locale and well-kept grounds....

All I can say is, well done! This condo is going to make somebody VERY happy! It must be seen to be believed!

Tis a nice looking remodel! Very clean. All the details looked great to me. Totally ready to move in. Nice shower fixture too, btw.

The ramp out front left me speechless tho. I have never seen such a thing. Surely someone has broken an ankle on that at some point. I'm thinking that would not get permitted these days, right? Anyhow the Danley's place is downstairs, you don't have to go up or down the ramp to get to it. But Damn!

Yeah the ramp is kinda scary! They just sprayed new elastomeric decking over it to make it non-slip but I'm glad we're on the first floor. The rock feature behind the ramp is a water fall although not in use at the moment. That will be really cool to see when it's all restored! I spoke to the on-site manager today and the exterior painting of the building should begin in early Oct. We can't wait! Supposed to look very similar to the Valley Ho.

Awesome! It is useful for something in this world?

Danley's-
A few things:
1. How the hell did you get that place completed in time for your party? Who do you work for? (Goverment agency)

2. A meaningless observation: The exterior shot of the 4 palm trees shooting up in the sunlight is amazing.

3. You should make mention that for this quality of design/ square footage a few doors down would be over double the price.
You should also warn male buyers of the danger in purchasing so close to such a party bulding. You know, intoxicated young females bouncing about sporting nothing but string bikinis. It is dangerous. Who knows what you may see. That should be a disclosure on the purchase contract actually.

4. Tiff- nice friggin work on the design! Wow!
Did you max out a few credit cards? I bet Marcel owes you his first born!

Great work Danley's!
You continue to Wow us all!!

Not to speak for the Danley's- but in their immediate absense I will defend...

It was a design choice-
There is a lot of cabinet space in the lower cabinets...
As for the absense of uppers- it looks so clean and simple in it's current state.

However, if the buyer neeeeds these uppers-
The Danley's could do the Black/ Brown shelving in pics 1 and 2 as a corner peice. (Open faced)

That'd be cool too....
I keep looking at these pics..... so cool!
I'll post mine soon too.
-Lots to live up to!

Great observations on the cabinets. I hate upper cabinets and for a small place the more open space the better i.m.o. Poliform, NY Loft and Ikea have great looking uppers but I didn't care for them in this space.

To clarify though, I did think long and hard about the Kitchen design... probably to the tune of 5 - 10 different revisions which is hard to do in such a small space. But, the result was 66" additional countertop space in the renovation when compared to the original floor plan. I also chose to do built-in cooktop & oven vs. slide in range although it was more than twice the cost. This would allow for a seamless linear line of Ceasarstone with no interruptions or breaks in the cabinet layout. Another trick I used is using all pull out drawers vs. cupboards. You get usable storage the entire depth of the cabinet and 3 separate storage spaces vs. a cupboard that usually has 1 single shelf dividing 2 spaces.

JC's right about upper shelving. That was my idea as well if someone really needed it.

Here's the before layout:

And the after:

You can see the difference.

Looks great Danley's.
Did you guys install the recessed lighting or did you have someone do it? We want to put some recessed lights in a couple of spaces. Do you have the name of an electrician that might be able to help us out?
Thanks.

Nice, nice

Really a very tasteful minimalist look. The kitchen especially allows for some really dramatic large painting. Can't do that when you have to have room to put all your stuff away that you never use!

I especially like that someone finally used a cool color like this blue.

Could you show the outdoor patio space, if there is one?
To exist in a space devoid of extraneous decoration is to be sculpture itself.

yeah the drawers vs cabinets is a good call. cabinets suck for the most part.

and there is crazy lots of counterspace.

i thought it looked like a very functional kitchen.

Not having upper cabinets makes it look HUGE!

I love everything about that place. It looks beautiful!



What about glasses? Where would you put those?
We used to have a sideboard that we used as a bar. Same sort of thing planned for this house but it's away from any countertop.....

Wait. Another question. If you decided to have a kitchen without upper cabinets, would you buy the upper cabinets and store them in case you wanted to sell the house? Or choose something generic so it would be easier to match later?
