Homes with Some of the Most Unique Features in Arizona

These homes offer some of the most unusual features you will find in any Arizona homes, perfect for the most refined buyers.

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty has earned its reputation as Arizona’s leading luxury home brokerage by connecting buyers to sellers for Arizona’s most impressive homes. That said, some homes feature bells and whistles that manage to turn heads even for those that have seen it all in real estate.


First is the home at 10040 E. Happy Valley Rd #1 in Scottsdale. Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Agent Lorraine Funk represents this 13,175-square- foot masterpiece in Desert Highlands, listed for $7,000,00. As if its seven bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms situated on a spacious 2.6 acres wasn’t enough, it is a recreational wonderland featuring both a water slide and a gymnastics space. Plus, a full club membership is included! It’s challenging to think of a more special place to raise a family than this unique home.


Next is the incredible ranch at 330 Eagle Mountain Ranch Rd in Sedona, hidden in an exclusive subdivision containing only five luxury homes. Listed for $16,500,000 by Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Agents Tod Christensen, it sits on a breathtaking 57 acres and features three bedrooms and four bathrooms on 4,780 square feet. But it’s what is on those 57 acres that truly makes it stand out: a private vineyard. You can enjoy the beautiful Sedona scenery and create your own wine simultaneously!


Then there is the captivating home at 26860 N 59th Street in Scottsdale, listed for $2,300,000 by Agent Tina Zompetti of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. This mix of luxury, amenities, and comfortable living without an HOA offers seven bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms on 4,531 square feet of space. However, the recreational offerings make it stand out; featuring a sports court, games, a playground, and even a putting green, you can invite friends and family and have fun for hours without ever leaving the premises.


Then there is the home at 6670 N Casas Adobes Rd in Tucson. Listed for $2,695,000 by Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Agent Thalia Kyriakis, its six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 8,047 square feet of space is incredibly impressive in its own right. However, that doesn’t hold a candle to its recreational features. Sporting a state-of-the-art indoor racquetball court and pickleball conversion kit, a basketball court, a heated saltwater pool with aqueducts, an indoor heated pool, and a jetted endless spool, it has everything for the athletic friends and family in your life to both work up a sweat and cool down in style.

 Finally, the incredible estate is at 11801 E Irvington Road in Tucson. This ranch masterpiece is listed for sale for $3,900,000 by Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Agent Bill Baffert.  Featuring nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and 5,050 square feet, the home itself has all the features inherent in a luxury home represented by Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, but its most extraordinary feature is for the horse lovers in your life. The house comes with Royal Star Equestrian Center, Southeast Tucson’s premier horse facility, adjacent to the Saguaro National Monument East, offering access to endless scenic trails in the famous saguaro-studded hills nearby. It is a dynamic, income-producing horse-lovers paradise with various possible uses.

Whether you desire luxurious amenities, incredible backdrops, or recreational amenities that you can’t find anywhere else, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty almost certainly has the perfect home for you. It’s yet another reason it is Arizona’s leading luxury real estate brokerage.
