America’s pastime is richly rewarded with a custom-designed chef’s kitchen and a wine cellar. One professional baseball pitcher sells his mansion to another and makes this week’s list of the Valley’s most expensive luxury home sales.
Diamond Estate at Scottsdale Mountain was purchased in cash by Canadian corporation 3244440 Canada Limited from Edward E. Wallace. The 5,572 square-foot, high-altitude 2010 build is dramatically designed with huge picture windows and retractable glass walls for breathtaking Valley views. Other features in the five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom home include custom cabinetry, natural stone fireplaces and integrated solar.
This 6,632-square-foot home located in DC Ranch in north Scottsdale was purchased by Kyle Matthew Lohse, trustee of the Kyle Matthew Lohse Trust Agreement. Lohse is a pitcher for the Texas Rangers and has previously pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers, among other teams. The home was sold by Dontrelle Wayne and Natalee Willis. Dontrelle, aka “The D-Train,” briefly pitched for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2010, and has also pitched for the Detroit Tigers and Florida Marlins. Designed by architect Bing Hu, the 2002 build has a chef’s kitchen with a large granite island and custom wood finishes, and a wine cellar.
Camelback Mountain makes for a stunning backdrop for this 4,395-square-foot home purchased by James and Susan Lewis from Pennsylvania-based investment firm TNG Capital Partners LLC. Built in 1968, the five-bedroom Arcadia home is on a spacious corner lot and has a show-stopping kitchen with high-end finishes, honed marble counters, a large center island, custom cabinetry and an immense walk-in pantry.
This Paradise Valley home was bought by Certosa Inc., a California corporation, in cash. It was sold by Dr. Daniel Paul Noble, an orthopedic surgeon and lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard. Built in 2000, the 5,319-square-foot home is perched at the base of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve and is designed to take advantage of panoramic mountain views. Outside, the landscape views look even better when lounging on the spacious covered patios or from the infinity pool.
Purchased by John Shay and Erica Hendrix in cash from Melissa M. Buhrig, this 1968 Red Wing Estates Paradise Valley home was completely rebuilt in 2012 to give it a modern edge. Clocking in at 3,894 square feet, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home has an open floor plan and an expansive backyard with a pool, barbecue area and a rooftop deck for taking in the mountain views.
