This triple-tiered structure on a cactus-covered hilltop was built in the late 20s out of granite, stucco and concrete. San Francisco businessman Allesio Carraro had a vision of building exclusive, custom-built homes around this world-class resort hotel. He lost his dream to a local businessman, A.E. Tovrea, when he unwittingly sold the place a few years later to Della Tovrea, A.E.'s wife. The Tovrea family immediately moved into the vacated property, utilizing it as their family home up until Della's death in 1969. The City of Phoenix purchased the property in 1993.
