A stunning mansion in the exclusive Silverleaf community of Scottsdale just sold for a whopping $24.1 million, making it the highest residential sale in Arizona’s history.
Situated on 17 acres with the majestic McDowell Mountains and Windgate Pass serving as a picturesque backdrop, world renowned architect Bing Hu of H&S International is the man behind the masterful design of the nearly 25,000 square foot record-breaking luxury estate sold by Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty.
Hu thoughtfully designed the home in a timeless Montecito architectural style utilizing natural materials, that can seamlessly be found both inside and outside of the estate, maintaining authenticity to the space while respecting the nature of the surrounding Sonoran Desert, he said.
This acute attention to detail and consideration for the environment is evidenced inside the 15,534-square-foot main house of 8 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms with a myriad of unique features, such as custom ironwork lighting and chandeliers, real Venetian plaster, Cantera stone accents, designer tiled bathrooms, imported tile roof, and so much more.
Outdoors, the amenities expand out to a negative edge tiled pool surrounded by lush green lawn with gentle stone accents, mature trees, flower beds and pots, and water feature, all designed to frame the dramatic panoramic view of the Valley below.
Of course, the property wouldn’t be replete without a smattering of other luxuries, including an 8-car main house garage; a 7,500-square-foot guest house equipped with its own garage, individual guest apartments and a standard sized yoga studio; a pool house with arcade games; a pub room with a full bar; and a full-size pool and spa with stone decking angled to relax and take in the desert sun and mountain views.
Hu, who has been honored with more than 20 major international and regional architecture awards, is known for his leading design of custom dream homes across the Southwest that are often described as residential resorts.
Another rare gem of Hu’s designs that has recently come to market is this exceptional DC Ranch contemporary estate.
Custom built in 2003, the 6,100-square-foot home with 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms features a bright, open concept floor plan that’s perfect for hosting along with a dramatic exterior space ideal for harmonious indoor-outdoor living.
