SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA (June 2, 2022) – The record for the most expensive home sold in Arizona didn’t stand for long. Fidelity National Title Agency is pleased to announce it helped close on a $28.1 million mansion at 21264 N. 113th Place in Scottsdale.
Built by Scottsdale-based Mast Luxury Homes on 4.6 acres, the 21,150 SF residence boasts eight bedrooms, two elevators, 12 full baths and six half baths. Scottsdale luxury realtor Darren Tackett, founder of The Tackett Team with RE/MAX Fine Properties, represented the seller in the transaction.
“There was no shortage of attention for this gorgeous property,” Tackett said. “The property was only on the market for 28 days, which is common for non-luxury listings but unheard of for a property in this price range. The demand for luxury living continues to be much higher than what is currently available so one-of-a-kind properties like these are selling quicker than ever.”
The sale surpasses the $24.1 million price tag of Wingspan within Silverleaf at DC Ranch that sold in 2020. The sale also surpasses the $21 million price tag of a mansion in the Cameldale neighborhood in Paradise Valley earlier this year.
“We are humbled to be part of this notable sale. It is such an honor to have experienced professional partners like Darren who have the confidence in our highly skilled escrow team to handle transactions of this magnitude because the coordination of all the players and attention to detail is critical. When closing escrow with Fidelity all parties have the assurance knowing our financial strength keeps their money protected,”
said Diane Day, President/ County Manager Fidelity National Title Agency.
The Scottsdale estate, Altitude at Silverleaf, was constructed in 2021 by Mast Luxury Homes. Located on the most prominent peak in the prestigious Summit at Silverleaf community and sitting on nearly 5 acres, city and desert views abound from every interior room and generous outdoor space.
The privately gated, circular driveway provides a resort-style welcome that leads to a stunning mountain backdrop, complete with an elevated, covered viewing tower to fully take in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.
Once inside, high ceilings give way to three levels of remarkable finishes, including extensive use of imported natural stone with a special focus on marble and natural quartzite and a five-natural stone fireplace.
The Dale Gardon-designed home is a space fit for hosting the grandest of gatherings, with an open floor plan meant for mingling. The spacious, custom entryway wine bar shines as a bright and unique welcoming point into the eight ensuite bedrooms, The 12 full and six half baths have easy elevator access between each floor. Natural light pours beautifully into the kitchen, with Subzero/Wolf appliances, including a Wolf Convection Steam Oven and 60-inch Wolf Range with two ovens, ideal for entertaining large parties year-round.
The double islands are topped with the finest Quarzo Iceberg Natural Quartzite imported from Italy and equipped with warm under-lighting to enhance the inviting environment. Remarkable modern lighting fixtures float above the breakfast and coffee bar and serve as stylish art pieces of their own throughout this Control4 smart home.
Opulent comfort is the theme in every room and is especially found in the exercise room with its steam shower and the yoga/art room with panoramic views. The card and game room offers endless opportunities for enjoyment, with two Subzero wine columns waiting for a collection fit to age and share throughout the years.
For those seeking a retreat into their favorite films, the theater with a 4K projector and professional sound system makes going to the movies as simple as dimming the lights at home and sitting back with the family.
