Altitude at Silverleaf sells for record-breaking $28.1M

Real Estate | 6 Jun |

On June 1, 2022, Darren Tackett, founder of The Tackett Team with RE/MAX Fine Properties, closed the largest home sale of 2022 within the state of Arizona for a staggering $28.1M. The 21,000+ square foot Scottsdale estate – aptly named Altitude – is located on the most prominent peak in the prestigious Silverleaf community, sitting on nearly five acres with city and desert views from every room in the house. Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.

“There was no shortage of attention for this gorgeous property,” said Scottsdale luxury realtor Darren Tackett, founder of The Tackett Team with RE/MAX Fine Properties. “The property was only on the market for 28 days, which is not uncommon for non-luxury listings but unheard of for a property in this price range. The demand for luxury living continues to be much higher than what is available so one-of-a-kind properties like these are selling quicker than ever.”

Located at 21264 N 113th PL, Scottsdale, AZ 85255 and constructed by Mast Luxury Homes and designed by Dale Gardon in 2021, modern elegance meets raw desert beauty in this unique space. The privately gated, circular driveway provides a resort-style welcome that leads to a stunning mountain backdrop, complete w/an elevated, covered viewing tower to fully take in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve’s majesty. Once inside, incredibly high ceilings give way to three levels of living featuring imported natural stone, marble and quartzite. A custom entryway wine bar shines as a unique welcoming point into the eight ensuite bedrooms, 12 full baths and six half-baths, all of which have easy elevator access between floors.

Fit for hosting the grandest of gatherings, with an open floor plan meant for mingling, natural light pours into the spacious kitchen, which features Subzero/Wolf appliances, including a Wolf Convection Steam Oven and 60″ Wolf Range with two ovens. The double islands are topped with the finest Cristallo Natural Quartz imported from Italy and equipped with warm under-lighting to enhance the inviting environment. Remarkable modern lighting fixtures float above the breakfast and coffee bar and serve as stylish art pieces of their own throughout this Control4 smart home.

Opulent comfort is the theme in every room, including the family room, which boasts accordion folding windows overlooking the palatial pool deck; an exercise room with its steam shower and the yoga/art room with panoramic views; a cards and game room with two Subzero wine columns waiting for a collection fit to age and share throughout the years; and a theater with 4K projector and professional sound system.

“I feel very blessed to have been involved in making history with the most significant sales price in residential real estate in Arizona. Our luxury market continues to thrive with national and international buyers. This legacy home is located at the highest point in Silverleaf with unparalleled views over our beautiful city and is rightfully named, Altitude at Silverleaf,” said Laura Briggs, of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty who represented the buyer.

The Primary Suite features his and hers walk-in closets, an ensuite bathroom with Italian-imported Calcutta gold marble, double-sinks, a bidet, and his and hers water closets. While the guest casita ensures true privacy, with its own full kitchen and two ensuite bedrooms. There are also separate “in law” quarters with a full kitchen and ensuite bedroom, so the entire extended family can gather on a vacation of their own.

Outside, three outdoor fire pits overlook the city of Scottsdale, even as far as the iconic Camelback Mountain in Phoenix. Two built-in grills befitted for large gatherings, an infinity-edge pool and spa. And the temperature-controlled 12-car garage is a car lover’s paradise.

The Silverleaf community also boasts several astonishing amenities, including a Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, expansive clubhouse and spa, and extensive walking and biking paths.
