Frank Aazami of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty represented the seller of what many call, ‘an iconic property’ found along Palo Cristi found in the Town of Paradise Valley, just off Lincoln Drive and 36th Street, near Piestewa Peak.
The amount changing hands? A total of $7,750,000, plus an additional $2 million for the adjacent 1-acre lot. To say that the estate found along Palo Cristi Road in the Town of Paradise Valley is impressive is quite the understatement, representatives at Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty contend.
“At first glance as one drives up, they are greeted by a driveway fountain, one of five fountains on the property and an opulent, regal front entry lined with Greek columns,” said Mr. Aazami who brokered the one-of-a-kind real estate deal. “It makes quite the first impression.”
Mr. Aazami opines the views offered by the unique property rival that of the Camelback Mountain and nearby natural wonders.
“The back yard somehow manages to outdo the front, with views of Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak as just the start. It also offers an Olympic size pool and spa, bocce ball courts, a putting green, and a sand volleyball court for the sports enthusiasts. For the kids it features an in-ground trampoline, a play area and park-like grounds,” he said.
“The back is where most of five carved fountains are featured, as are two fire pits, a fireplace, covered outdoor living and dining patio, and a guest home. All those features and yet it still manages not to look busy, as it all sits on a massive parcel covering over 3.5 acres.”
But for Mr. Aazami, no property is a home without incredible features inside — as well as outside.
“Inside its gorgeous confines you can enjoy custom inlaid polished marble floors, limestone columns and n imported Italian staircase, all making it that much more welcoming,” he said.
“Want to enjoy a glass of red or white? Make your way to the stone-clad wine cave with over 600 bottles. Want to play a few games? There’s a game room for that. How about a movie? You can head to the theater room; a room for every occasion.”
The property offers unique amenities including:
- 5 fireplaces,
- an exercise room,
- a sauna in the master suite,
- an executive office,
- a butler’s pantry,
- a caterer’s kitchen; and
- wet bar.
Not only is the property built for a personal compound, but it also boasts the right space for hosting friends and family, Mr. Aazami contends.
“The open floor plan has 18-foot ceilings with floating box beam ceiling treatments. It also features a towering gas linear fireplace in the main room as the centerpiece of the living area,” he said. “Along with all that space and all those amenities to entertain, there is the 8-car garage to allow room for everyone, with room to build more and no HOA.”
