The new mountainside estate “Altitude” in Scottsdale’s Silverleaf community just sold as the most expensive home in Arizona history. Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty closed the property at a record-breaking $28.1 million, just under a month after it was listed.
The 21,150 square-foot mansion at 21264 N. 113th Pl. represents the most impressive landmark in the firm’s storied history in the Grand Canyon state. Its ideal location, luxurious amenities and breathtaking views of the Valley were its selling points, according to Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Luxury Agent Laura Briggs who represented the buyer in this extraordinary transaction.
“Silverleaf is continuing to attract the most discerning buyers in the world,” says Briggs. “Scottsdale has gained a reputation for being a mecca of international buyers looking for a place to invest in legacy properties.”
Constructed by Mast Luxury Homes and designed by Dale Gardon in 2021, “Altitude” 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.
In addition to its eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms, the home features a temperature-controlled 12-car garage, three-story elevator, a theater with a 4K projector and professional sound system, two Subzero wine columns, and game, exercise and art rooms.
The primary living suite encapsulates luxury with his and hers walk-in-closets, an ensuite bathroom and a primary bathroom adorned in Italian-imported Calacutta gold marble. Opulence extends into the kitchen with double islands topped with the finest Quarzo Iceberg Natural Quartzite imported from Italy.
Just beyond the gates of the private estate is the Silverleaf Country Club, which features an 18-hole champion golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf and other award-winning amenities, plus the nearby convenience of Scottsdale Airpark and Old Town Scottsdale for dining,shopping and entertainment.
“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,” says Briggs. “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 just like this one in Silverleaf.”
