PHOENIX — McCune Mansion in Paradise Valley, one of the largest homes in Arizona, was recently listed on the market for $16 million.

The 52,000-square-foot house was built in 1967 for the heir of Pennzoil, Walker McCune, and was at one point the No. 13 largest house in the country, according to Forbes.

The grounds encompass 3.77 acres with a 360-degree view of Camelback Mountain with two adjoining pieces of land to bring the total to six acres.

Some of the elegant features include exterior stonework, patterned concrete, marble and tile interiors, an amethyst-clad fireplace, an ice rink originally built for McCune’s wife, a 150-seat theater and a ballroom.

In addition to the entertaining spaces, there are 12 bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a 2,900-square-foot detached guest house for a total of 14 bedrooms and 23 bathrooms, according to Forbes.

There is also a stone wall encircling the house, raised walkways to give it a fortress look, a guard house, a gatehouse, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and his and hers locker rooms.

Located near Lincoln Drive and 32nd Street, the mansion sits 15 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and just over 20 minutes from downtown Phoenix.

Previous owners of the house include the infamous fitness mogul Gordon Hall and Geordie Hormel, the late heir to Hormel Foods.
