“This home needed to be experienced to be fully appreciated and with the arrival of COVID-19 we had to be creative in our efforts to achieve this along with ensuring we were protecting everyone’s health. To showcase the home, we arranged for multiple photoshoots capturing the home at different times of the day, a professional video and offered virtual tours both pre-recorded and live. We endeavored to make each showing a celebration. We made every attempt to keep everyone safe while delivering a truly memorable experience. This was best achieved through private, in-person showings which were complete with a sanitizing station, catered hors d’oeuvres, champagne, and breathtaking views.

This was true when my wonderful buyers walked in the door of this magnificent estate. That said, we were very discriminating and our due diligence took some time and we used a number of ‘experts’ to scrutinize every aspect of the house. It was worth it. My clients could not be happier. The home is a perfect fit,” said Jones.

Recently boasting the record for the most expensive home sold in Arizona, the Scottsdale-based brokerage has now closed on the highest residential sale price, as well as the highest price per-square-foot both in Mirabel Golf Community according to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
Real Estate Advisor Patrick Rice of the Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Desert Mountain office was the listing agent responsible for breaking both sales records.
In the first transaction – Rice represented the seller and closed the highest residential sale in the Mirabel Golf Community for $4,275,000 according to MLS. The modern home called “SkyView” features Bulthaup kitchen cabinets with Miele appliances, views from every room, pocket doors for seamless indoor and outdoor living, a spacious poolside workout room with a full bath and steam fixture.

The dramatic features and custom-made furniture were part of sale and part of the allure, as was the homesite. It sits at the pinnacle of the Mirabel Club community, on a double fairway with spectacular views of the city lights, golf, mountains and sunsets.
The relationship you build with someone when you’re designing their home is unlike any relationship in architecture that I have experienced. As an artist, you want to feel that connection and know that your work resonates with the person who will live in it and will have many experiences and memories in the home for many years to come.

The grandeur of the home is expressed as a Modern Mediterranean home, and then unfolds upon entering the foyer to a beautiful contemporary arch framed view of the Valley and city lights at night,” said Architect Dale Gordon, “It is rare to be able to design a home with all primary living spaces all enjoying the A+ view orientation indoors and out.
