It’s all about the details in a 10,634-square-foot home in Scottsdale’s Silverleaf community, from the impeccable wood floors to the luxurious finishes embellishing every room.

Situated in the Upper Canyon neighborhood and surrounded by lush desert plants and softly sloping mountains, the estate was designed by renowned Scottsdale-based architect Erik Peterson of PHX Architecture and built by Calvis Wyant, a well-known luxury custom home builder in Arizona.

Featuring six bedrooms and 7.5 baths, the estate offers a home theater, five fireplaces, each designed with varied materials such as fieldstone, brick and travertine, a chef’s kitchen with a massive center island, an opulent dining room, spacious master bedroom suite, two executive offices, a separate, two-room guest casita and a four-car garage.

An expansive brick driveway and motor court create a sense of arrival that carries over into the arched foyer where three steps down lead to a formal living room with built-in, finely-carved cabinets for displaying prized collections and family photos. Hand-carved as well as glass-fronted cabinets and carved refrigerator doors and built-ins make the kitchen warm and inviting.

Reflecting a thoughtful design that provides maximum comfort, the master suite features a cozy sitting area with fireplace, a steam shower with temperature controls on the opposite wall from the shower head, two water closets, and a large walk-in closet.

To facilitate clean-up, a convenient private laundry is also a part of the master suite.

In addition, solid wood beams, high ceilings with clerestory windows and charming gathering spots for guests further enhance the luxurious feel.

The outdoor living space has every comfort including a kitchen with built-in barbecue, patio with covered dining space and a fireplace. And for those occasional chilly desert evenings, heaters in the ceiling will keep guests comfortable. A negative edge pool with water feature offers additional desert and city light views of metro Scottsdale and Phoenix.
