The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Zion Realty

You will not believe the size and over-the-top amenities of the most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week! You simply have to see it to believe it. But what else would you expect when a former Major League Baseball star sells his home. There are a large number of current and retired athletes that live all over Arizona. Some choose to live the simple life and others build lavish compounds that you only read about or see up on the big screen in the movies. This would be an example of the latter! 

There was absolutely no expense spared to build this custom gated estate. The home itself is massive at over 14,000 square feet of living space but that is just the beginning. An imposing and impressive wrought iron arched double door entry lets you know right away you are entering in to a special property. How would you like your own indoor batting cage? What about a fully equipped workout facility, resort style pool with mosaic tile water slide, synthetic turf whiffle ball field, basketball court, putting green, and air conditioned 6-car garage? Did I mention it only took two months to sell this unbelievable home? Click on the picture below for the full MLS listing:

Location: Glendale

Size: 14,731 sqft

Bedrooms: 6

Bathrooms: 8.5

Lot size: 83,302 sqft

Joan - They got 4.25 millon for it which is a bargain to me.

Beth - It's beautiful and massive!

Wow, $4.25 isn't a bad price tag on the "getting what you pay for" scale.  I was expecting a 10+ on the front of that price tag.  I love when you showcase these unique and beautiful compoud...I

Hello Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert 

Only 14,000 square feet?  My clients just won't look at anything less than 15,000.

Far too extravagant a style for me....I prefer a simpler style!  It's a beautiful home, just a bit over the top!

It is hard to understand all this square footage, but some just need it. I did a mortgage in a home that was 17 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. Three people lived in the home.

Hi Nicole - I love this series. And that is one spectaculr home - I went through all 107 photos, and it was an amazing trip - the home looks like a bargain! Thanks for a fun read.

John - Right? I didn't think it was a bargain per say but it was a pretty decent price. 

Lisa - Of course not! And why would they? 

Sharon - It is very extravagant for me as well. I am a minimalist but it is a very nice home. 

Joe - Three people for 17 bedrooms? Now that's a bit ridiculous. 

Dick - Usually homes don't warrant 107 photos but this one did.

Michele - The aerial pictures do give you a better scope of the entire property!

Alan - Well the lot size is that big but the home itself is just over 14,000. Still, that's pretty enormous. 

Lou - It only took 2 months to sell. That's almost unheard of for that magnitude of home. 

Conrad - I'm not sure what our max for photos is but I've seen way more than 107 before.

Hi Nicole-over the top is an understatement! That place looks like a grown up boys playhouse fantasy. What a steal of a deal as well. Do you think the extreme personalization effected the price or is that normal for out there?

Rob - People didn't have much time to walk through this one as it wasn't on the market very long!

Marco Giancola - I think it's location is why it was so affordable. That home in Scottsdale or Paradise Valley would have been a few more million. 

L & S - Indeed one can dream! I'm not even a sports fan but that whiffle ball field would be pretty awesome to have in my backyard. 

Paul - Now it's just considered a great deal!

Barbara-Jo - I would hope that's somebody's dream home. If not I'd hate to know what they dream about!

Outside of the very specific baseball stuff, this home is one that hits home with me.  (No pun intended.)
