A north Scottsdale mansion is on the market for $26 million, making it the priciest home for sale in Arizona.
The 14,350-square-foot house on four acres in the Silverleaf neighborhood of DC Ranch comes with an elevator, two guest houses,10-foot solid slab fireplaces, swimming pools on both sides of the property, a 1,000-bottle wine room and five laundry rooms.
The Mediterranean, contemporary-style mansion also has nine bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, 10-foot-tall automated doors leading to numerous marble terraces, a commercial walk-in freezer and a master bathroom done entirely in Statuario marble with grey and gold veining.
"This home has set the architectural bar in Silverleaf and the Valley," said Deborah Beardsley of Silverleaf Realty, who has the listing on the home with her son Andrew Beardsley.
The home was recently renovated by its owners, billionaire oilman and Portland Winterhawks hockey team owner William Gallacher and Joanne Stansfield, who paid $11.1 million cash for it in 2016.
"The owners love to invite family and friends over and enjoy entertaining on a large scale," said Andrew Beardsley. "The redesign definitely makes guests feel very welcome."
The Scottsdale mansion isn't the priciest ever to be on the market in Arizona.
In 2016, a Paradise Valley estate with an indoor basketball court, a hair salon and 20 bathrooms was was listed for $35 million. The 36,000-square-foot mansion on 12 acres called Villa Paradiso was built by New York hedge-fund executive Robert Sussman. It didn't sell and was taken off the market last year.
Newer mansions in Silverleaf have been breaking sales price records.
In March, a group called Rimrock Properties paid $18.8 million in cash for a 21,000-square-foot mansion situated on 30 acres in the exclusive neighborhood. It was the priciest home sale in Arizona history.
Weeks before that sale, a Canadian buyer paid $17.5 million for a 20,000-square-foot mansion in the exclusive neighborhood.
For the first half of this year, home sales in Silverleaf were up 50 percent compared to the same period last year, said Mike Sweeney of Silverleaf Realty. The total amount spent on homes in the area was up 84 percent.
