The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Zion Realty

The most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week is reminiscent of a rustic ski lodge but instead of being located high in the Rocky Mountains, it's situated on the Sonoran Desert floor. The endless wood work in this multi-million dollar luxury property could only have been completed by a master carpenter and craftsman. Wide plank wood floors, exposed wood beams and wood paneled ceilings, are just a small fraction of what was included in this design style. Add to all of that the custom built in bookshelves, cabinets, fireplace mantles and stair case railings and the amount of expenditure on lumber alone for this home must have been a overwhelming amount of the budget. 

Massive antler chandeliers hang from the main living space that perfectly frame the floor to ceiling stone fireplace.  But don't let the mountaineer appeal of this property fool you in to thinking it's any less of a luxury home. The chef's kitchen provides every modern amenity a cook could desire and the rest of the fixtures and finishes still exude class and old-world sophistication. The backyard provides mountain views and more than enough space to stretch out and play. A large and inviting swimming pool will provide countless opportunities for enjoyment and entertainment. Lastly, one of the most unique features of this home is the fireman's pole that was installed for a fun and childlike way to access the walk-out basement. Click on the picture below for the full MLS listing:

Location: Arcadia

Size: 6,876 sqft

Bedrooms: 5

Bathrooms: 4.5

Lot size: 36,074 sqft

Hi Nicole - That's a beautiful home, and one that we would definitely call "Colorado Style". And I don't think it seems out of place in the desert either.

Oh my, my. I could easily call this gorgeous rustic lodge - home. To me, it would work anywhere in a gorgeous and natural environment. Let's see, where did I put my check book? ;)

V & M - Thanks so much. I love living here in Arizona. 

Joy - Those windows let in a lot of natural light. 

Paul - It's not really my style but a great house none-the-less.

George - I think I'd be able to handle a home up to about 4,000 sqft but that's about it. 

Dick - This is definitely a style you see more of than I do.

Jon - It would be a great house for entertaining. It has a lot of character. 

Debb - Next time it comes up for sale I'll email you. 

Lou - Thanks Lou. I hope you're having a great week so far!

Hi Nicole --- it was interesting(to me) to see that this home had a large walk-out basement --- I would think that is a rather unusual feature for a Phoenix home. The fireplace is quite nice and there appears to be a lot of attention to detail in this home.

I look forward to this weekly post as it really gives a good perspective of your market.   Thanks.
