Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is announcing the listing of what representatives say is a grand estate a part of the Scottsdale Silverleaf community.

The property found at 20568 N. 112th St. No. 1707 is starting at a $32 million asking price, according to a press release.

The 2.07-acre property is one of the last buildable lots in the coveted Scottsdale Silverleaf community, the release states. The 17,267-square-foot estate includes seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Luxury Agent Allan MacDonald is listing the home properly named “Ellington Heights.” Mr. MacDonald has reportedly sold more than $500 million in total sales volume during his career.

“I could not be more excited to be listing a true ‘game-changer’ in Silverleaf. This architectural masterpiece and design elements in this beautiful estate represent the past and the future in epic proportion. The home offers unique amenities that bring the luxury experience to life,” Mr. MacDonald said in a prepared statement.

Property owner Jerry Smith created one of the most talented teams the Valley has to offer, and together they have created a home that brings a new side of luxury to Arizona, representatives say.

“We are super excited to be part of this project. When we purchased Lot 1707, we knew we had something special. In our opinion, it’s one of the best remaining lots in the Upper Canyon,” Mr. Smith said. “Add the fact that we have created a ‘best in class’ team across the board, which makes us excited to introduce the community to this fantastic project.”

The home is being built by GS Fries Construction, a builder with a long history of luxury home construction throughout the Valley, including the Silverleaf community. Gary Fries worked closely with luxury architect CP Drewett and designer Claire Ownby, to bring this project to life and deliver the vision that creates one of the most exclusive estates in Arizona.

“We are very excited to collaborate with Drewett Works and Ownby Design on this masterpiece of a property. Ellington Heights will indeed raise the bar in this esteemed community,” Mr. Fries said.

CP Drewett, lead architect for this project, has a great amount of experience building luxury homes. His firm, Drewett Works, has quickly become one of the most awarded architecture firms in the Scottsdale area. His design of this home brings modern luxury to the desert and its style of “Modern Desert Prairie,” is a variation of current Prairie style with the classic nature of Silverleaf.

“Setting a new standard for Silverleaf, Ellington Heights will indeed infuse Silverleaf with a refreshed modern design aesthetic. Steeped in the roaring ’20s, this game changing Prairie Style estate takes luxury desert living to the next level,” Mr. Drewett said.

Ms. Ownby, a highly sought-after interior designer and the founder of Ownby Design, LLC., will transform this estate into a simple, yet detailed home with an influence from the “Roaring ’20s” and the Art Deco period.
