Three new model homes and the first of two buildings at Sage will be unveiled on March 28 and 29 in Downtown Scottsdale when developer iStar Residential hosts an opening event at the $35 million luxury condominium community located along the Scottsdale waterfront.
Now selling from the high $400ks, the first release of 15 homes is already approaching 50 percent sold. Homeowners will begin moving in later this month as the first building is completed that comprises 36 two- and three-bedroom condominiums ranging from 1,375 to 1,659 square-feet, with optional den floor plans. Rounding out Sage’s final phase will be another 36 homes within the second building that will be completed in April.
“A look inside these brand-new homes at Sage is what everyone has been waiting for since we broke ground,” said David Sotolov, senior vice president at iStar Residential. “This is the only new construction community in Downtown Scottsdale that is ready for immediate move-ins. New condominiums of this size and quality in the heart of Downtown Scottsdale just don’t exist anywhere else, making this a really rare opportunity. You can now tour our expanded floor plans, see our top-of-the-line features and finishes and experience our resort-like amenities. We’re ready to welcome our first homeowners into the final phase at Sage.”
With the opening, buyers can expect to see unique architectural niches, modern elegant finishes and designer appointments. Blending style, sophistication and modern convenience, homes at Sage present savvy features, inviting indoor and outdoor spaces and spectacular views of the waterfront canal or Camelback Mountain. Interior features include granite kitchen countertops with decorative tile backsplash and LED under-counter lights, Dacor® professional stainless steel kitchen appliances, designer-selected modern wood cabinetry, GROHE® bathroom faucets and fixtures, Provenza hardwood floors and a gas fireplace with natural floor-to-ceiling stone surround. Each home has a luxurious master suite with a spacious walk-in closet and well-appointed master bath with Carrera marble countertops, dual under-mounted sinks and a deep soaking tub. High-tech and sustainable features include controlled energy-efficient heating and air conditioning units, a Wi-Fi controllable thermostat, integrated USB ports, high-speed cable and Low-E, energy saving glass.
iStar Residential recently completed a six-figure investment in redesigning and upgrading the community’s resort-like amenities. Amenities include an expansive 3,400-square-foot, two-story private clubhouse with dramatic 30-foot ceilings; a designer-styled and luxurious library lounge with entertaining kitchen, fireplace and 65” flat screen TV; a one-of-a-kind climate controlled subterranean wine cellar; a lushly landscaped waterfront pool and spa with an outdoor lounge and private cabanas; an open-air grilling area with raised terraces for scenic dining; a fitness studio with SCIFIT and Spirit equipment and a Yoga-stretch room; Wi-Fi access and USB ports throughout the clubhouse and gated underground resident parking. iStar is also constructing a paved and lighted walking path from Chaparral Road to the southern end of the property line with enhanced, lush landscaping that will connect Sage to the heart of Downtown Scottsdale. The first phase of Sage, a collection of 50 condominiums, townhomes and penthouses, sold out in early 2012.
Tucked into a quiet residential neighborhood that lines the waterfront of The Arizona Canal, Sage combines the feel of a suburban lifestyle in an urban location. Upscale yet intimate, Sage’s traditional architecture boasts stone-lined walls and chimneys complemented with architectural niches and dimensions that differentiate one set of homes from the next, creating a picturesque community.
Conveniently located within walking distance of world-class shopping, restaurants, independent art galleries in Old Town Scottsdale, resorts, and golf courses, Sage provides a private and redefined city-living experience that is unmatched by any other residential community in Scottsdale.
Sage’s model and building opening event will be held Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. To RSVP or more information about Sage, call 480-947-SAGE (7243) or visit www.SageScottsdale.com. Sage is located at 4855 N. Woodmere Fairway in Scottsdale.
