Modern Phoenix Week 2018 + Home Tour of Marion Estates
The Buena TerrorArchitect: Original unknown. Renovation by Ben Allison in 2007
Style: Midcentury Modern/Contemporary
Named for its rocky metamorphosis from unassuming bank-owned foreclosure to labyrinthine punk rock log cabin, the Buena Terror houses organic artwork, warm bamboo accents and salvaged rustic industrial furnishings. Though it looks quite at home in Marion Estates, the block wall on the facade is not vintage; Allison echoed a popular and interesting midcentury motif found throughout the subdivision.The warm texture of natural materials provides a striking contrast between the home’s stark modern lines and abundant natural light. Don’t miss the stunning view of the Praying Monk on Camelback Mountain through a sliver of east facing clerestory window. The master bath retreat has a soaking tub, walk-in shower and clerestory windows which let in light while offering privacy.
