The record for the priciest home sale in Arizona has been broken, again.
A Canadian buyer has plonked down $17.5 million for a 20,000-square-foot mansion in north Scottsdale’s exclusive Silverleaf neighborhood.
Buyer Nummus Properties, a Saskatchewan corporation, paid cash for the estate, according to public real estate records.
The house is situated on four acres near the 6th hole of the DC Ranch community’s Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course.
The stone mansion has five indoor and outdoor kitchens, two elevators, a virtual-reality golf simulator, basketball and volleyball courts, a rock-climbing wall, fitness center with steam room, guest house and eight garages.
Brandt Tractor Ltd. has the same mailing address as the buyer Nummus, according to property records. Brandt Tractor is part of the Brandt Group of Cos., one of the largest privately held companies in Saskatchewan. It manufactures agricultural, railway maintenance and construction equipment. It’s also one of the biggest John Deere dealers in the world.
The seller was Midwest Retreat ll led by Jordan Dejong of California.
Mike Domer of RE/MAX Excalibur had the listing on the $17.5 million home.

In December, Steve Sanghi, founder of Chandler-based Microchip Technology paid a then-record $15.65 million for a mansion on Paradise Valley's Mummy Mountain. It's now the second-priciest house sale ever to close in Arizona.
