Grace, Elegance and Timeless Style Make Their Mark in this Luxury Resort

Estate Homes, The Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley

Wouldn’t life be grand if you could reside full-time at an upscale resort, with its luxurious interiors, fine dining, beautifully landscaped grounds and host of amenities? While luxury hotel-living might not be for everyone, a new master-planned community in Paradise Valley, Arizona, will soon be offering residents a chance to experience the resort lifestyle in an Estate Home of their own.

And the piece de resistance is that all of these homes come with full access to all of the treasured services and amenities of The Ritz-Carlton. These include access to the main hotel pool, which at more than 400 feet, is the longest resort pool in North America, a dedicated personal concierge, a private clubhouse including a fitness salon and all the services of the hotel from in-residence dining to housekeeping and all the maintenance which add up to a simplified and beautiful life.

The Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley, owned and developed by Five Star Development, is slated for 122 acres on the west side of Scottsdale Road between Lincoln Drive and Indian Bend Road. It will include a 200-room Ritz-Carlton hotel, 81 single-level villas, and 39 Estate Homes—the latter of which are the latest phase of the project.

“The Estate Homes will exude a level of sophistication and superior luxury that will create the most powerful address in Arizona,” says developer Jerry Ayoub, president of Five Star Development. And the home designs will offer a fresh approach to the luxurious amenities clients want most.

Priced from the $5-millions, designed by Scottsdale-based architect C.P. Drewett, with interiors by Beth McGehee, the enclave of single-family luxury Estate Homes range in size from 5,500 to more than 12,000-square-feet. “We are offering four floor plans and three elevation styles that include Modern, Desert Prairie and a modern interpretation of a Mediterranean home,” says Brendan Mann, president of The Solvere Group, the listing brokerage for the community.

“We want to make sure we create a timeless version of each style that will have appeal for decades to come,” he explains.

The architecture will be one of the main elements of this community, and with the variety of elevations and home plans, each home will have a totally unique look, which is a major feature in differentiating this enclave in Paradise Valley.

What makes these homes so enticing is that the homeowners will have the ability to configure the layout and tailor many of the spaces to reflect their own style.

The Modern style will feature plenty of glass, stone and very clean lines, while the Desert Prairie will have more of a rustic feel with the materials on the outside. The Mediterranean-inspired look was the vision of developer Ayoub. “Mediterranean homes …Santa Barbara and Tuscan to a degree … have been done in Arizona for a long time, and that style has had appeal to a number of people,” Mann remarks. “That said, we realized that we wanted to have a modern interpretation of what that style is for today, a Modern-Terranean.”

What makes these homes so enticing is that the homeowners will have the ability to configure the layout and tailor many of the spaces to reflect their own style. Whether they need an extra bedroom for overnight guests or a health and wellness studio to keep up with their fitness goals, the personalization process will allow each homeowner to create a home that is perfect for their life.

Each residence has the option to be configured with a main and lower level, while several homes can add an additional upper level. Floor plans are designed with three to five bedrooms, and prep kitchens are available to go along with fully equipped kitchens.

For the car collector, there is the opportunity to add an auto showcase gallery, with an elevator for transporting a vehicle to the lower level to be put on display. “The potential is incredible to create a space that can showcase the most rare and expensive cars on the planet,” Mann says.

Some master bathrooms will feature sliding doors that open to private water gardens, outdoor showers, and water features. “The back and side yards vary in size depending on the location, and each homeowner will work with our landscape designer to create what their perfect area is,” Mann says. Residents can add a lawn, fountain, outdoor kitchen or swimming pool.

“There are some who would like a pool for kids and grandchildren, those who want all grass, and those who want as low a level of maintenance as possible. The great part is that each of them will be able to create their own oasis.”

Even better, the latest addition to the community will be a high-end luxury shopping and dining development called The Palmeraie, which will be North America’s top luxury shopping and dining destination with more than 60 boutiques representing the most exclusive brands in the world along with 15 culinary experiences that will feature the best of the best in every category.

Luxury living is beginning to feel a lot like home with a quintessentially iconic address.
