The Phoenix penthouse that once served as the home of the late U.S. Senator John McCain has recently sold for $6 million. The landmark property is located at 2211 E. Camelback Rd and remains an important part of Arizona history.
The iconic property was sold by Kelly Sands, owner of Chandler-based Kovach Enclosure Systems and founder of ICON Builders, a large multifamily renovation company. Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Agent Tim Hundelt represented the seller in this landmark transaction.
“It was a pleasure working with Kelly Sands to secure the purchase of the McCain penthouse, and it was a pleasure selling it when he was ready,” says Hundelt. “Lock-and-leave properties like this are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own, the size and quality are unlike anything that has ever been available to purchase in Arizona. It was a lot of fun to sell a New York-type penthouse here in Phoenix.”
The Phoenix penthouse is not only valued for its political and historical significance in Arizona, but also for its spacious entertaining and living areas, incredible views of the Valley, and noteworthy amenities.
Just under 7,000-square-feet, the unit has 4 beds and 4.5 baths as well as expansive entertaining spaces that include a full-size theater room, billiards room, 500-bottle wine room, and a state-of-the-art kitchen. Its multiple large windows offer sweeping, unobstructed views of Downtown Phoenix and Piestewa Peak.
The residence is also equipped with a Crestron smart home system featuring custom lighting and shades throughout the interior space. For optimal comfort and convenience, the penthouse includes a 24-hour concierge and security service as well as five parking spaces and outside storage.
With its political roots and modern, advanced features, this residence shares a significant piece of Arizona history.
