The drive into Silverleaf’s Upper Canyon signals to visitors that you are entering a special place. Once through the private entry gate and up the long winding driveway, a spectacular Mediterranean style home sits on two lots overlooking Scottsdale and the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. This 12,800-square-foot home, built in 2004, sold this week for $11,110,000, making this home the most expensive home ever purchased in Silverleaf.
The custom home was originally designed by Dale Gardon and built by Linthicum. In 2011 there was an extensive remodel. The home features six bedrooms and nine baths, and a private guest house on the property. From the 1,000 bottle wine cellar, to the game room and theater, to the gym and sauna, there’s something for every interest in this home. Unique contemporary finishes and details like Carrera marble and Italian flooring add to the Mediterranean glamour of the home. The dramatic views are accented by the airy, clean design of the interior spaces and the luxurious outdoor living spaces connect into the home seamlessly. The resort style pool, a lap pool and two spas sit between the relaxation areas, the cabana and outdoor kitchen. Water and fire features make the outdoor living spaces more dramatic, with unique lighting that adds to the intimacy.
The home was sold by Deborah Beardsley, associate broker, for Silverleaf Realty.
To date in 2016, there has been more than $169 million in sales (closed and pending) in Silverleaf.
