Desert life is hard. Dust, heat, scorpions – all are a daily routine for desert dwellers. That is, unless you live in this impressive 19-acre Scottsdale estate where the Sonoran Desert pushes its way back in. With a three-hole golf course, a baseball diamond, game room, music room and wine room, this five-bedroom adobe-style homestead tempers its harsh surroundings with luxury amenities. But while the sprawling home offers cool respite from the desert elements, it never feels out of place, with a facade that blends seamlessly into its environment. Towering saguaro cacti stand guard at the front of the home. The home is on the market for $11.7 million.
