Listed for a cool $27.5 million, Scottsdale’s highest-priced estate teams serene seclusion with modern Mediterranean design.
Cruising along the winding tree-lined driveway, anticipation builds as guests reach 21053 N. 110th Way, a sprawling Mediterranean-style estate nestled behind the guard-fronted gates of Silverleaf’s Upper Canyon (silverleaf.com). As the highest-priced listing in all of Scottsdale, the 15,000-square-foot home, built by award-winning Scottsdale-based firm Salcito Custom Homes (salcito.com) in 2017, is a feat of architecture and design.
While architect Dale Gardon (dalegardondesign.com) has worked in the Scottsdale area since 1999, he’s certain this $27.5 million mansion is the most exquisite project he’s ever worked on in Silverleaf. His favorite aspect of the property takes place when the sun goes down. At dusk, the valley’s muted warmth is set ablaze by the sunset before it sinks into a constellation of blinking city lights in the distance—which is all visible upon entering the estate’s foyer. This natural harmony between interior and exterior was a main tenet of Gardon’s design. There’s never a moment where residents aren’t astounded by the graceful folds of the surrounding landscape. He adds that it’s especially rare to construct a home in which all primary living spaces enjoy such magnificent views. “The home exceeded all expectations,” adds realtor Lisa Westcott of The W Group. “It’s surrounded by mountain peaks and features city light views that are expansive and unobstructed. It is truly an honor as a broker associate to represent such an exquisite estate.”
The airy master bedroom.
Builder Anthony Salcito notes that the property was designed to accommodate large-scale, lavish entertaining. The previous owners frequently hosted friends and family visiting from out of state. Naturally, there’s a place for everyone—from the game room furnished with a full-size bar to outdoor access to the state-of-the-art indoor gym. Luckily, all of those cordial amenities still adorn the home, including the personal paradise stationed outdoors. With a deep diving pool, a fire pit, an accoutred kitchen, various fireplaces and multiple sitting areas, it’s not hard to imagine dazzled guests enlivening the space.
The great room and gourmet kitchen share one large space.
The home, after all, is all about breathing room, as evidenced by six air-conditioned garage bays, six large bedrooms and an accompanying casita equipped with dual walk-in closets and its own private outdoor oasis. Exclusive amenities also abound thanks to its Silverleaf locale. A world-class Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, tennis and basketball courts, walking trails and the signature Silverleaf Club and Spa give little reason to leave the guard-gated community.
The living room and game room provide plenty of space for hosting guests and wiling away the hours at the stocked bar.
Another defining trait of the design is its attention to detail, seen in the elegant French limestone and French oak flooring throughout. The 8 ½ bathrooms boast heated flooring and steam showers, and the gourmet kitchen is outfitted with not one but two islands, plus a spacious butler’s pantry. An entertainer’s paradise, indeed. $27.5 million, Lisa Westcott, The W Group | Silverleaf Realty, 480.229.3455, thewgroupaz.com
The entrance to the stunning home is dual-gated for ample privacy and security.
