The most expensive home sold in Arizona last week is located in the highly sought after subdivision of Silverleaf in Scottsdale. At almost 10,000 square feet this massive estate sits on over 2 acres of prime desert real estate. However, this gorgeous home is yet another sober reminder of the economic recession. Originally built for a sum of $13 million dollars, these new owners were able to purchase this luxury property for $6.6 million dollars, a mere fraction of the original cost. A Mediterranean inspired design, the front entry courtyard greets you with an old-world stone walkway and lush greenery giving you the feel of entering in to your own private Spanish villa. Dark woods, heavy iron fixtures, and a lighter paint scheme provide a perfect contract in color and design. The interior is full of intricate details that could take you several times through the home before catching each one.
The exterior of this home is just as carefully crafted as the inside. Plenty of natural stone joins the inside with the outside. The backyard is situated to take full advantage of the surrounding mountain views. The new owners will never tire of the spectacular Arizona sunrises and sunsets as the relax on their extended entertainers patio or take a cool, refreshing dip on a hot Summer's day in their sparkling pool. The builder and landscaper took proper care in not disturbing most of the natural desert trees and shrubbery when this home was built so you feel as if this home as been there for mch longer than it's young lifespan.
