Russ Lyon SIR Closes the Most Expensive Home in Arizona History at $28.1 Million

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Brings the Buyer and Closes the Most Expensive Home in Arizona History at $28.1 Million.

The property, known as “Altitude,” represents the most impressive landmark in the firm’s storied history in the Grand Canyon state.

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty has long been synonymous with gorgeous, bespoke homes, with an extended and storied history of life-changing transactions to show for it. None are as big as this one. However, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is incredibly proud to announce that it has closed on the most expensive home in Arizona history. The property, located at 21264 N. 113th Pl., Scottsdale’s Silverleaf community, closed Thursday for a record-breaking $28.1 million.

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Luxury Agent Laura Briggs represented the buyer in this extraordinary transaction, which went under contract in less than a month after being listed, an awe-inspiring feat given the sales price.

Briggs said her clients have always expressed interest in owning the best view properties. After representing them in multiple transactions, she said this legacy estate, perched high above the Silverleaf community, simply offered the best views.

“Silverleaf is continuing to attract the most discerning buyers in the world. Scottsdale has gained a reputation for being a mecca of international buyers looking for a place to invest in legacy properties. This particular sale involved an international buyer of mine who has transacted multiple transactions with me over the past several years. It’s an honor to be a part of the largest residential transaction in Arizona history and one of the smoothest transactions of my career.”

Laura Briggs

Having sold many high-end properties in Silverleaf over the years, Briggs attributes the Silverleaf Country Club, of which she is a member and its discreet lifestyle as one attraction for buyers in the community. The private club features a Tom Weiskopf designed, 18-hole champion golf course, along with other award-winning amenities.

“While this may be a record-breaking sale for Arizona, it once again puts Scottsdale on the map as an international destination for our weather, golf courses, quality of life, and a safe harbor for taxes,” she said. “As my peers and I are actively engaging with buyers and sellers in this spectrum from across the world, we realize it’s only a matter of time before we see even more record-breaking sales like this one in Silverleaf.”

For that kind of price tag, one would reasonably expect unimaginable luxury. However, even then, the details of this intersection of desert beauty and modern opulence still manage to surprise and delight. At 21,150-square-feet, 8 bedrooms, and 15 bathrooms, the possibilities are endless. Constructed by Mast Luxury Homes and designed by Dale Gardon in 2021, it is located on the most prominent peak in the prestigious Summit at Silverleaf community, with some of the best mountain and McDowell Sonoran Preserve views in all of Scottsdale to match.

Suffice it to say, this property is tailor-made for grand gatherings, with an open floor plan designed for mingling, a spacious entryway wine bar to greet guests in the most welcoming of manners, and easy elevator access, allowing you and your guests to make the rounds as efficiently as possible. As with any gathering, the ability to create wonderful meals is paramount, and Altitude fully delivers, with Subzero/Wolf appliances, including a Wolf Convection Steam Oven and 60″ Wolf Range with two ovens and double islands topped with the finest Quarzo Iceberg Natural Quartzite imported from Italy and equipped with warm under-lighting to enhance the inviting environment. This is in addition to the three outdoor fire pits and two built-in grills, allowing the culinary journey to roam seamlessly from the indoor luxury to the outdoor vistas.

Amenities for maximizing your leisure time are a given at Altitude, with an exercise room containing its own steam shower, as well as a yoga/art room with panoramic views. The cards and game room allows guests the ability to let loose, especially when paired with two Subzero wine columns waiting to fuel your game night. A 4K projector and professional sound system make it an ideal place to screen a new movie or to watch the big game with your entire circle.

It wouldn’t be a luxury home if we didn’t speak to the living quarters though, and Altitude lives up to its price tag in that regard. Its primary suite perfectly encapsulates that with his and hers walk-in closets and an ensuite bathroom befitting the finest hotels in Europe. Italian-imported Calcutta gold marble adorns the primary bath, including double-sinks, a bidet, and his and hers water closets. For those that work from home (and who wouldn’t want to leave this palace?), the office is the perfect quiet space to engage the mind, with spectacular inlaid walnut ceilings and a powder room for easy access throughout the day.

Want to host family and friends for an extended period? This estate is also outfitted with multiple spacious and luxurious guest quarters. The guest casita ensures true privacy, with its own full kitchen and two ensuite bedrooms. There are also separate “in-law” quarters with a full kitchen and ensuite bedroom, so the entire extended family can gather on their own vacation. Need space to fit some extra vehicles, be them yours or loved ones? The temperature-controlled 12-car garage and its separate complete bathroom offer a welcoming spot for your favorite gearhead.

And we would be remiss if we didn’t talk about Silverleaf’s location in Scottsdale. Beyond the private gates of this estate are some of the best opportunities for dining, shopping, and taking in scenic views within only a few miles. It is situated approximately 20 minutes from the exclusive Scottsdale Airpark and just a quick drive down the 101 freeway to the art galleries and designer shops in Old Town Scottsdale, making it an ideal location.

In the words of agent Laura Briggs, “I feel very blessed to have been involved in making history with the most significant sales price in residential real estate in Arizona. Our luxury market continues to thrive with national and international buyers moving into the area every day, which is really good for the entire real estate market.”

The Sale of What Could Be a Final Masterpiece in Nighthawk by Architectural Legend Gerry Jones

The sale includes the last home built by Jones who was critical to the foundation of Carefree, Arizona.

Architect Gerry Jones has been an incredibly important part of the history of the town of Carefree. While his work graces landscapes around the Valley, he is intrinsically tied to the town he helped found with his work. Therefore, it is appropriate that this masterpiece is in the place where his spectacular career began.

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to announce that it has closed on a one-of-a-kind property that highlights this legend’s career. Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Agents Frank Aazami and Bill Ramseyer sold the 5,270-square-foot home at 37251 N. Nighthawk Way in Carefree for $3,400,000.

Gerry Jones’ illustrious career spanned over 65 years and designed approximately 328 homes. With speculation that this could be one of his last custom creations, this sale is considered incredibly special therefore there is an added treat. This home is a spec home and represents one of only three spec homes he has made in that 65+ year career. Jones’ goal with the Nighthawk home was to include a combination of custom features, quality of construction materials, design characteristics, and orientation of the home on a hillside lot. These characteristics became the hallmarks of the other 325 custom homes he created for his clients.

Agent Frank Aazami said this about the landmark sale, “Nighthawk was in fact the highest-priced home sold per square foot within Carefree. We attribute this milestone accomplishment to Gerry Jones and Tim Larson with La Casa Builders for imagining and building this signature home. In this case, they have proven it with a timeless design coupled with quality construction that can yield the highest sale and reason for a toast. This home will outlast many generations to come.”

Gerry Jones was born in Indiana in 1924 and served in Okinawa in the Pacific theater in WWII as a Marine. He also served in the Korean War, and first became interested in architecture while in China, where he witnessed monasteries built into the mountainsides. That love of extreme architecture never left him, as he taught extreme mountainous terrain architecture at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West for 17 years.

Carefree Founders K.T. Palmer and Tom Darlington asked Jones to lay out the roads and lots of the original town between 1957 and 1959. His first home was built in the Town of Carefree in 1959 on a 2.5-acre improved lot at a cost of $1,700 (today’s value of the lot would be about $850,000), a home that Carefree Councilmember Vince D’Aliesio now lives in with his family. He documented guidelines and created rules for development that eventually would become part of the Maricopa County Hillside Ordinance. Jones believed in designing homes that exceeded code requirements and therefore last for generations. His design and construction process blends with the natural flow of the terrain, a design characteristic he likes to call “Southwestern Textural”.

Jones’ 328 homes are spread throughout Arizona, Carmel, Maui, Nevada, Portland, and Palm Springs. Some of the homes he has designed and built in the Valley area can be found in Camelback, Mummy Mountains, Pinnacle Peak, Paradise Valley, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Clearwater Hills, and Cave Creek.

The smallest home he designed and built was a 1,500-square-foot Honeymoon Cottage on 17 acres in Carefree. The largest home was 26,000 square-foot masterpiece that he built at a cost of $52 million. Among his clientele are celebrities, athletes, corporate executives, and international clients. 140 of his career 328 homes are built in Carefree and 17 of them are built on Black Mountain.

We invite you to watch this video where he tells the story about his process. Take this virtual tour and see for yourself just how special this property is now and will always be.

Rackensack Mine

Off-Grid Famous Gold Mine Property For Sale Just North of Scottsdale: Rackensack Mine

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is well known for connecting buyers to sellers for many of Arizona’s most gorgeous, custom properties with all of the trappings of comfort. But every once in a while a property comes around that has those trappings yet manages to be so incredibly unique at the same time.

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Announces an Off-Grid Famous Gold Mine Property For Sale Just North of Scottsdale.

For starters, at 400 feet from the Scottsdale city limits, it has one of the closest helipads to Scottsdale. No need to fight rush hour traffic with this property.  You can simply helicopter back and forth without opening your car door. Watch this video and see for yourself.

That’s just the start, living near this gold mine property.  The Rackensack Mine property is, true to its name, situated on land that has a gold mine that thousands of people have paid money to tour. Take the speed tour of the mine yourself here.

 Those are just the more idiosyncratic features of this amazing property, however; in essence, it is the ultimate safe haven secluded refuge. Constructed on a cliff, the property is surrounded by the Tonto National Forest, 360-degree panoramic views, and 14 potential sites for additional buildings. At 62 acres, to call it expansive would be an understatement. The property currently includes two structures; a two-room guest house and a fitness studio with a patio and bubbling hot spa, and plenty of room to still build your dream house. 

 Finally, if you’ve ever found yourself lamenting the heat during the summer, this is the property for you. Situated at 4,500 feet, you will almost certainly find it to be wonderfully temperate in the summer and might even find some snow in the winter.

Listing Agent Preston Westmoreland has represented numerous Arizona gold mines throughout his 30-year-real-estate-career but this one, he says makes you feel like you are on top of the world. 

I love to explore the desert and have been in over 100 mines over the years and this is one of the most fun mine trips I’ve ever taken, especially with the level tunnels, very exciting. It’s amazing to me, looking from the top of the mountain, how much you can do in a remote off-grid location and talk about a safe haven, even though you’re looking right at the northern boundary of Scottsdale, you’re surrounded by the national forest with gated access.

Preston Westmoreland, listing agent for Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty.

Between a corporate retreat, a wilderness B&B, a center for eco-tourism, or just your own dream home, the options for this land are endless. You can check out the full listing of this truly unique property here

It is yet another example of how Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty manages to continually showcase incredible bespoke properties.

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Helps Arizona Cardinals’ Kliff Kingsbury Win The Internet and Social Media With His Luxury Home / Ultimate NFL Draft War Room

Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury won the internet on the first night of the NFL Draft with a shot of him in his own personal, luxurious and one-of-a-kind war room at his Paradise Valley home. The shot of Kingsbury in his luxury and very contemporary home was posted by the Cardinals on social media and garnered tons of attention during the NFL Draft.

Photo from the Arizona Cardinals Twitter Account

Lisa Roberts helped Kingsbury find the home when he was hired by the Cardinals last year.

I previewed hundreds of homes online and about 40 homes in person prior to showing him top properties. This was new construction and checked all the boxes as far as amenities go – views, backyard, and the quality he was searching for. We made a few changes after close including a movie theatre room so he can watch back plays. Certainly, this is coming in handy now that we are in quarantine!
