Palladian Palace In Paradise Valley, an Italian-inspired compound comes to life

Nestled between a canopy of trees and Camelback Golf Club in Paradise Valley rests a truly one-of-a-kind estate designed with luxury in every corner and angle. A five-bedroom, seven-bedroom Italian-inspired home, designed by Juan Sandoval, combines 17th- and 18th-century Palladian decadence with modern touches. From its two sun-drenched courtyards to its unique pentagonal shape to its mastery of interior design down to the last detail, this sprawling estate is sure to impress with true perfection.

Listed at $16.5 million, this private lot, represented by Frank Aazami of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, comes complete with unmatched luxury. A secluded drive leads to a gated and welcoming entrance accented with mesquite trees and brick walkways. Once through the massive castle-esque front doors a grand foyer opens up with marble floors, a stone fireplace and golden accents. The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home offers luxury in every room as easily seen in the formal dining room. A chandelier hangs from a beam-exposed 14-foot ceiling, drawing the eye to the center of the specialized flooring–a perfect place to dine with guests for celebrations and holidays. Below ground guests can be entertained in the wine cellar, complete with enough space to hold an extensive collection of fine wines.

Outside of hosting opportunities, the golf course-adjacent home, which sits on top of 2.5 acres, allows for plenty of room, time and privacy to study or while away the hours. The library includes a winding staircase that leads to wall-to-wall bookshelves on the second-floor, overlooking a wide open study space below. And a spacious great room can double as a personal leisure paradise or a great hub to host movie nights, cocktail hour or fundraisers.

After enough time inside a bit of fresh air outside always helps. A square courtyard, centered around a marble fountain and lined with beautiful landscaping, is swathed in sunlight. Complete with an attached patio the garden-inspired courtyard is perfect for balmy summer nights or crisp winter evenings. A breezy walk around the patio hallway, outlined with Italian columns, leads to multiple offerings of entertainment. Homeowners can choose to dine out in one patio’s outdoor great room or swim during hot afternoons in the luxurious pool in the other courtyard.

Have a green thumb? The north garden offers a decadent touch to urban horticulture enthusiasts. And veranda views present a touch of privacy and class when enjoying the outdoor grounds by yourself, with family or a group of guests.

The Paradise Valley home also comes with plenty of outlets for luxury and leisure, with personalized touches in every room. For auto enthusiasts a six-car, marble-tiled garage can house everything from the family SUV’s to a fleet of unique collectibles. For the chefs of the house, or for catered parties, a fully stocked gourmet kitchen is perfect for dining in, cooking a feast or entertaining a bounty of visitors. The kitchen includes two islands and a wood-fired stove for cooking possibilities. And for movie nights, an indoor theater is included and comes complete with a concession and powder room.
