PHOENIX — A nearly 10-acre estate in Scottsdale’s Desert Mountain community has become the highest-selling property in the area after going for $10.2 million.

The five-bed, seven-and-a-half-bath mansion nestled in the community’s upper canyon Saguaro Forest grants sweeping views of the Valley’s mountains and city lights. A three-sided infinity pool, spa, rainfall water feature and fire pit complete the outdoor set-up.

Motorized glass walls brings the outdoor resort-style atmosphere inside in a seamless transition, creating an alfresco dining environment.

Originally built in 2015 by Gemini Development, the mansion contains audio and visual technology throughout, as well as heated floors and a four car garage.

The main floor of the house is host to a great room, office, chef’s kitchen with all new furnishings and massive master bedroom with a spacious bathroom.

A full wine wall gives a dramatic finish to the bar area to go along with the marble and granite countertops in the kitchen.

Four guest suites, with private patios for each, finish out the oasis. Two suites reside on the main floor and two on a lower floor that can be accessed via a floating staircase or elevator.

The property was sold by Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty and was first listed in July.
