The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week - 3/29/16

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Zion Realty

I think the best way to describe the most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week would be to say it has a modern southwestern design. The exterior is reminiscent of a quintessential Arizona Santa Fe style home. The flat roof, smooth stucco finish, jagged but straight lines, and neutral brown tones are all of what you would expect from a luxury property situated here in the desert.  The use of flagstone, natural rock, and native vegetation around the perimeter of the property also add to the feel of a what residents in other states must visualize when they think of Southwestern architecture. Even the pool was designed to compliment the shape and style of the main residents as it shows off the same jagged yet straight lines and is surrounded by natural desert stones and plants. Situated right at the base of the famous Camelback Mountain range in Phoenix there are endless mountain, sunrise, and sunset views to be had in the years to come. 

The modern style is more seen on the interior of this luxury home. The southwestern version of white-washing was used on the wood plank ceilings, cabinets, and other wooden accent pieces. Contemporary glass light fixtures, fans, and finishings blend these two worlds together which isn't easily accomplished. Built in the year 2000 this was the first time this home was sold by the original owners. It took less than two months to find a cash buyer so clearly this combination of style and architecture struck the right chord with the new owners. They say it only takes one buyer to fall in love with a property. Click on the picture below for the full MLS listing:

Location: Phoenix

Size: 5,726 sqft

Bedrooms: 4

Bathrooms: 5

Lot size: 44,052 sqft

An elegant, but not off-putting home.  I can actually see myself living in something like this and feeling at home.

It's beautiful Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert and with 4 garage stalls I may even get a car in one.

Hi Nicole - This is an architecturally interesting home, certainly well done but with a bit less warmth than some of your more recent SW examples.

 It is nice to see that our economy is still strong enough to have people with that kind of money to make a cash offer Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert

Chris - It does have a very functional feel to it.

Bob - I bet if you bought that house you'd have money for a few cars.

Sybil - Cars, trucks, four-wheelers, etc. You can fit a lot of toys in those stalls.

Noah - It's a classic southwest style build.

Beth - It's a little too modern for me but you can't beat the location.

Dick - You don't see too many of that style much anymore but back in 2000 it was popular.

Paul - That home sold quickly too. That price range usually takes at least 90-120 days but usually even more than that.

Nicole another amazing home, and I guess if you can afford a property like this, you can afford the four cars to occupy those garages :)

Good morning Nicole. Not sure what I would call it, but the name you gave is as good as any. The original over had unusual taste as did the new owner.

Nicole, I really enjoy your most expensive home sold series. I'd love to know what kind of cars they'll be housing the garages.

What gorgeous views this home has. I could enjoy them myself if somebody will pay for it. Thanks for sharing in this series.

Luxurious and all the while quite comfortable and relaxed from the 35 photos I took a gander at! Did you sell it, list it, both??

How did I miss this one?  Did my future ex-husband tell you not to tell me about this one?  Is he cheating on me?

George - You can also probably afford the landscaping and pool maintenance as well.

Joe - It's definitely a twist on a few different styles that you don't often see together.

Amanda - I'm guessing they probably arent honda's.

Debbie - The home isn't my style but the views certainly are!

Gayle - I wish. Maybe one day this weekly blog post will catch the right buyer and seller who will give me a call because of it!

Roger - I don't think he's cheating on you. He's was probably just getting the place all nice and cleaned up for us as a surprise.
