Lavish Luxury in Paradise Valley Flanked by mountain views, an oasis in the desert sets itself apart

Nestled between Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak, a secluded desert retreat showcases its subtle yet sprawling luxury on every level. With desert mountain views around every corner, this Paradise Valley home was built with peace and serenity in its blueprint, and also a full dosage of entertainment possibilities. With natural light, breezy walkways, personal touches, a resort-type atmosphere, and a customized feeling of privacy, this Dave Hansen custom built compound is one of a kind.

Standing on over two acres just off Tatum Drive, 7036 N. 47th St. in Paradise Valley is the perfect place to create a home of personalized comfort. Whether it’s a love of cars, recreation, fitness, cooking or entertaining, this five-bedroom, 10-bathroom home has it all, and more.

“It feels like heaven,” says Thomas O’Leary, who represents the home for Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. “There is a serenity created by the extraordinarily lush surroundings, the elevation, the privacy, and the stunning mountain views from everywhere in the home.”


O’Leary’s to-the-point assessment of the space couldn’t be any truer. A private gate leads you down a driveway bordered by lush gardens and trees, offering a warm welcome and a testament of personal luxury to come.

“One of the key features is privacy/security. More than two acres of lush landscaping and perfectly elevated views,” adds O’Leary.

A roomy foyer acts as the perfect entrance for the home with a 15-foot-high ceiling and a flood of light beaming thru the glass door. Once thru the welcome area, you head straight to a warm living room space where family can take time to gather and look out to the garden-like atmosphere of the backyard.


Floor-to-ceiling windows reveal a wraparound deck with colorful views of rolling rocks behind it, perfect for sunset views every day. This space is only a sample of the home’s all-around luxury and focus on relaxation and quality craftsmanship.

Heading around the corner, the dining room backs up near the kitchen, an airy and beigy common area where guests can gather for dinner parties or where intimate dinners can be created. Sleek appliances and handcrafted cabinetry work together to inspire imaginative creations that you can share with family and friends. A marble center island is great for preparing meals or playing host to food sampling. Ingredients can be stored inside the sizeable refrigerator.

Moving past the kitchen, a great room opens up, flanked by two exits to the backyard and side yard. You can leave the wall-to-wall sliding glass doors open for cool nights in the more pleasant seasons or close them and gather near the corner fireplace during the brisk winter evenings.


Heading outside, a beautifully made koi pond adds a touch of personalization you would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. But the real highlight of the surrounding grounds– besides a pebble-finish pool and ample patio area–is the lavishing desert oasis. Palm trees, manicured shrubbery, and beaming gardens create a relaxing getaway from the busy world just down the street.

A detached 1,000 square-foot guest casita offers another level of privacy with the same attention to detail found in the main house. A full kitchen, sizeable living room, and relaxing bathroom offering both shower and tub make this a great place for guests to recharge and not feel like they’re putting anyone out.

In the main house, the master bedroom features enough room to create a personalized retreat with room for home office–if the dedicated home office isn’t large enough–vanity and movie watching. A side-by-side walkable closet with enough shelving and storage to hold your clothing, sports equipment and extra furniture juts up against a lavish master bathroom. Featuring limestone flooring and a garden to you step down into, this is more of a personal spa than a regular bathroom.


For entertainment, homeowners can choose between a number of options. Movie night can come with a view as the built-in home theater features an entire floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the pool and the nearby mountain facades. For golfing buffs who need to work on their backswing, the installed golf simulator allows for tee time anytime. And a six-car bedrock garage is the perfect size and finish to house everything from a small fleet of collectible cars to guests’ rides. More into motorcycles and off-roading? Why not create a workshop of your own in the spacious area?
This Paradise Valley estate is listed at $4,300,000.
