Chase Hancock renovates Scottsdale home to accentuate golf course views
The son of a Scottsdale luxury home builder put the family business to work remodeling his home near the Starfire Golf Club.
âThe interior kitchen did not have a view and was completely closed,â he said.
Her parents are Mark and Julie Hancock, the co-owners and general managers of Camelot Homes. Founded in 1969, it has been in the family for three generations. The company’s remodeling division, overseen by his sister, spearheaded the seven-month process.
âWe demolished it to the studs and renovated the whole house,â said Chase Hancock.
Redesign with a view
âThe old dining room is the master now with a view, and we’ve added walk-in closets,â Hancock said. âWe also had to install a huge beam to support the structure of the house. “
They kept the imprint of the bedrooms on the second floor but extended the floor, creating a loft used as a playroom and relaxation area.
âIt took a lot of engineering,â Hancock said.
They moved the staircase from the center of the great hall to an outside wall. Studio Iron created the iron stair railing.
âThe original layout didn’t take advantage of the golf course view,â Hancock said.
The previous kitchen was dark and closed. The remodel transformed the house into an open concept concept of his dreams.
âThe super open floor plan, high ceilings, and kitchen design are my favorite elements of the renovation,â Hancock said.
Even the two-car garage has been given a facelift with new paint and custom cabinetry.
âWe added a Tesla charger, a water softener with potassium system, and an 80 gallon recirculating electric water heater, so we never ran out of hot water,â Hancock said.
Timeless design with quality choices
Hancock chose warm but durable materials. The whole house had carpet which he replaced with natural-colored wood.
Kimber Fox, his girlfriend, wanted a full-size fridge and freezer built into the kitchen, so the couple chose Wolf appliances. The island cabinets are black and topped with cascading white quartz countertops. The touch of black on the island contrasts with the crisp white kitchen cabinets from Flint Development, which produced the cabinetry throughout the home.
The custom hood and backsplash are porcelain panels in Panoramic Diamond Mine Matte from Daltile. The hood is flanked by floating shelves, adding a modern touch. The kitchen even has the perfect space for a formal dining table that seats eight.
They used polished Emser Kalta Bianco marble for the master bathroom floors and quartz for the countertops and vanity. Instead of a large bathroom mirror, Hancock chose three remote mirrors with lighting in between.
Diversified Builder installed Creative Mines Craft Split Modular Lunar Stone on a large wall in the master bedroom and on the massive fireplace wall in the great room.
Upstairs, Hancock transformed a bedroom into a home gym. They also added a daybed, making the room versatile in order to accommodate overnight guests.
âEach bedroom has a walk-in closet and my son’s bedroom has a huge patio,â he said.
Bohemian chic style with a modern twist
Most of the fixtures are from Phoenix Hinkley’s Lighting store and are like little works of art.
âPeople comment on the chandeliers the most,â Hancock said.
Pacific Dimensions Inc., an interior design company, furnished the house with a mix of leather, wood, stone and metal.
The house is modern but still comfortable and stylish. Plush rugs and throw pillows add texture, and touches of green plants make the house feel like a home everyone would love to live in.
Hancock’s son had his own vision of his bedroom.
âHe wanted an office and a football theme,â Hancock said.
The custom embroidered pillow and bright blue accent wall coordinate with the rest of the house while reflecting the 11-year-old’s style.
A smart home of the future
Hancock is particularly drawn to the âsmart homeâ features of his recently renovated home.
âEverything from the locks and the garage door to the HVAC, from the lighting and sound system to the security system, is connected,â he said.
It can control everything transparently and remotely.
âTrident Integration LLC has made the whole house a smart home,â he said.
Simply Shading electronic shades are also controlled by the system. There are custom switches welcoming him to the house, and he only has to press “goodbye” when he leaves.
A corner of paradise in the open air
Hancock called on VMP Landscape to redesign their outdoor space.
âThe backyard landscape was red brick, so we changed it to marble,â he said.
They also have a TV, a waterfall, a swimming pool and a barbecue area. The swimming pool has LED lighting.
âThere was a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, so we flipped it outward so we could keep it, and we changed the indoor fireplace to electric,â Hancock said.
They kept the finishes bright and light, and with the lush green landscape and the view of the golf course, the space is lush and inviting.
