BedBrock Developers, Paradise Valley’s premier builder, announced that it has broken ground on the first mountainside showcase home in Crown Canyon, the most exclusive gated community in Arizona.

With 12 homesites, this stunning secluded canyon is surrounded by the Phoenix Mountain Preserve and is minutes from downtown Phoenix. This private canyon will be home to some of the highest end homes in Arizona, with the average home price expected to be more than $9 million. This canyon in the heart of the city creates the ultimate fusion of urban convenience, beauty, luxury and exclusivity.

The exquisite architecture of the initial Jade Homesite was designed by CP Drewett of Drewett Works, with harmonious interior design by Mara Green of Mara Interior Designs. The Crown Canyon team is proud that this stunning 8,100 square foot masterpiece has already been awarded a “Best in American Living Award” by the National Association of Home Builders. CP Drewett stated, “This is a historic project in Arizona and I am working to make the architecture historic as well.”

Patrick Niederdrenk and Maximilian de Melo, of America One Luxury Real Estate, are not only the exclusive listing agents, but they believed so much in the canyon that they invested along with an investor group to build out the Jade Homesite. Niederdrenk said, “In today’s environment, people value gated communities that offer peace and tranquility, safety and privacy, indoor/outdoor and healthy living environments, bringing back into their homes all possible luxury amenities.” De Melo adds, “There is no other community in Arizona like Crown Canyon, due to its privacy, exclusivity, and proximity, which, coupled with the quality of design and construction, will no doubt be home to some of the valley’s most prominent residents.”

Included in those who will call Crown Canyon home is the developer himself. Rich Brock, founder of award winning BedBrock Developers, said, “I am excited to break ground on my home in the coming months, as there is no other property like Crown Canyon in the entire Valley. It has solitude, security and exclusivity, while still being close to everything. It’s literally a desert jewel in the heart of the city.”

Kevin Groman, owner and principal at Crown Canyon Capital, added, “When I first acquired the land several years ago, I knew it was really special and was fortunate to compile a team of the most respected individuals in the industry, and then waited for the right time, and now is the right time. I remember when Vern Swaback, Frank Lloyd Wright’s youngest apprentice, wisely said, ‘Crown Canyon will be an architectural symphony with each home adding to the canyon’s natural beauty’ and now that we have broken ground the architectural symphony has begun.”
