Listed at $26 million, Scottsdale home has highest price tag in Valley

PHOENIX – It’s the most expensive home on the Phoenix-area market, and it’s spectacular.

A mansion in Scottsdale’s ultra-ritzy Silverleaf community was listed this week with an asking price of $26 million.

“This home has set the architectural bar in Silverleaf and the Valley,” listing agent Deborah Beardsley of Silverleaf Realty said in a press release.

According to, the previous highest-priced home for sale in Maricopa County was a Paradise Valley spread listed for a measly $18 million.

County records show William Gallacher and Jo-Anne Marie Stansfield of Toronto having purchased the Scottsdale home on October 2016 for $11.1 million, less than half the asking price.

The owners renovated the palatial estate this year in a modern Mediterranean style using expensive, handcrafted materials and the latest residential technology, the press release said.

“The house has it all,” Andrew Beardsley, who is sharing the listing with his mother, said in the release. “The attention to detail is stunning and the use of fine materials really sets this home apart. It‘s a great balance of excellent style and comfort.”

When he says “all,” he’s not kidding.

Nestled in the shadow of mountains in northeast Scottsdale, the 14,350-square-foot, two-floor estate has six en suite bedrooms in the home plus two guest quarters and a caretaker’s suite.

It looks like the pool party scenes from Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” could have been filmed there.

The luxury features include whole-home audio/visual streaming, a wine cellar that can store more than 1,000 bottles, five laundry facilities, black marble archways, custom lighting fixtures and an elevator.

The exterior is like a resort, with multiple marble terraces, a lap pool, a recreational pool and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and city lights.

Words can’t do the property justice, so check out the photos below.
