Adobe Villa With Romantic Pool
It doesn't get much dreamier than this European-style estate in Phoenix. Known as Il Segreto (or "The Secret" in Italian), this home's outdoor living spaces are some of the most stunning we've ever seen.
Spread over two fully landscaped acres, this desert retreat is sprinkled with several inviting outdoor living areas: a tranquil prayer garden, a rose garden, a secluded brick patio. But nothing wowed us more than the romantic pool, flanked by a classically inspired cabana. We're practically swooning for those softly lit seating areas and soothing fountains.
On the market for only the third time since architect Robert T. Evans designed it as his private residence in 1935, this enchanting estate has been completely updated without compromising its original integrity. The compound offers four master suites (three in the main house, one in the matching carriage house), each with a private entrance, bathroom and courtyard. Now that's magical. Are you as starry-eyed for Il Segreto as we are?
