House of the Day: Contemporary Angles on Arizona's Desert

There's no better way to kick off a dreary Monday morning than with a sweet slice of real estate -- and we can't find anything sweeter than this 10,187-square-foot stunner on Happy Valley Road in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Located on just under 4½ acres of lush desert, this rare contemporary features seven large bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a casita (guesthouse) and tons of luxury amenities. Aside from the usual pool and spa, the home boasts a theater, an exercise center, a large basketball court, even a putting green. Inside, there's fireplaces, private decks, a wet bar, and incredible mountain and city views from every angle (even the deep-soak bathtub).

And then there are those striking desert views from the pool and patio area. Who needs oceanfront when you have miles upon miles of golden, cacti-studded landscape to feast your eyes on?

The home was recently listed for $4.795 million.

Tom Locati and Will Foote of Sotheby's International Realty have the listing.
