The most expensive home sold in Arizona last week is a massive estate in the highly sought after and guard-gated subdivision of Silverleaf in DC Ranch in Scottsdale. At almost 7,500 square feet this sprawling luxury property sits on 2.75 acres of prime Scottsdale real estate. The exterior is designed with a Mediterranean Old-World flare. Custom stone work and exposed mortar roof tiles make this home seem as if it's straight out of a Spanish Villa. Massive rough sawn timber beams and and a smooth stucco exterior finish also lend to the overseas inspired design. Carefully nestled on a cul-de-sac lot, the new owner will enjoy breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountain Preserve during the day as well as spectacular and sparkling city light views in the evening. A carpet of green grass in the backyard is not often seen at a property in Arizona but combined with naturally occuring and mature native palo verde's and other desert trees and shrubbery, the home owners will spend many days playing and enjoying their lush environment.
The interior of this home is just as carefully crafted as the outside. Plenty of natural stone joins the inside with the outside. The same exposed wooden beams join from the exterior in to the interior to provide a seeless transition. Imported, dark, chiseled hickory flooring and a soft cream paint scheme give a perfect contract in color. The fixtures and finishes are also large in scale to fit in to the elevated ceilings but they are simple and tasteful, not overdone. Click on the picture below for the full MLS listing:
