Scottsdale-based luxury home developer Silver Sky Development announces the approval of its 12-lot luxury estate home site in Paradise Valley by the Town of Paradise Valley Council.

Silver Sky, named in honor of the colorful sunsets viewed from its Mummy Mountain site, is a rare, pristine parcel home to 12 sprawling, ultra-custom estate homes in Arizona’s wealthiest municipality, according to a press release.

“We are honored and delighted to receive the approval of the Paradise Valley Town Council,” said Gordon Berry, one of Silver Sky founding partners, in a prepared statement. The 17-acre community was unanimously approved by the Town Council.

“We can’t wait to show the world the unparalleled and exclusive community we are presenting,” Mr. Berry added.

Silver Sky also announces its architecture team.

Known for their signature building styles and magnificent aesthetics are architects Stratton Andrews of Stratton Architects and Mark Candelaria of Candelaria Design Associates, who will each design showcase estate homes in Silver Sky, the press release states.

Currently undergoing design are four showcase homes that will range from 7,500 square feet to 15,000 square feet. Pricing is anticipated to start from $11,250,000.

These exceptional custom homes, officials of the brand contend, offer the following amenities:

  • Maximized outdoor living spaces to take advantage of the fantastic Arizona climate and views,
  • functional, yet innovative, chef and prep kitchens,
  • multiple entertaining areas,
  • al fresco dining,
  • lavish landscaping,
  • over-the-top bedrooms with opulent finishes,
  • state-of-the-art fitness center,
  • spa,
  • cold plunge pool
  • spacious, meticulously designed guest homes, and
  • spacious garages that will elevate car storage and display to new heights.

“We have selected the absolute, best-in-class team to bring our Silver Sky vision to life,” said Mr. Berry. “Mark and Stratton are both at the top of their field, and their work and commitment to excellence speaks volumes. Silver Sky’s custom homes will be extraordinary, unparalleled, and done with great attention to this rare, pristine parcel.”

“The designs they developed take the estate home experience to transcendent and unsurpassed levels, beyond what most of us have ever seen or dreamed of. They have anticipated buyer wants and desires before the buyers even realize them,” Mr. Berry added. “We can’t wait to share their vision with a few discerning buyers.”

“To say that it’s an honor to design a signature home for Silver Sky is an understatement,” Mr. Candelaria said. “Rarely have I seen a parcel with such astonishing views, in an enclave setting and in one of the most desirable zip codes in the world.”

Mr. Andrews looks forward to collaborating with a premiere group of talent to help clients create beautiful homes.

“Stratton Architects is eager to help Silver Sky’s ultra-affluent clientele through every step of the process,” he said. “The expansive parcels create an open canvas for an architect with endless design opportunities.”

As one of Arizona’s top landscape designers, Jeff Berghoff and his team bring true craftsmanship with cutting-edge execution to the community, the press release states.

“Our designs tell a story and it’s not about a fleeting moment, but about values and things that last,” says Mr. Berghoff.

Silver Sky Development is comprised of Mr. Berry, Heriberto Velasquez and Jeremy Takas, who have selected the founding partners at RETSY | Forbes Global Properties: Chris Morrison, Babbi Gabel and Kirk Linehan, to handle real estate broker services.
