A French Countryside-Inspired Chateau—in Paradise Valley

France or Arizona? Though this French countryside-inspired chateau inspires images of the pathways and lanterns of the Louvre's Jardin des Tuileries in Paris—or one of Monet’s paintings—it is actually located right here in the Valley, sitting on 4.62 acres in the exclusive area of Cameldale in Paradise Valley and offering incredible views of Camelback Mountain and the Praying Monk.

“The home is the perfect amalgamation of Old World style with New World finishes—it has been entirely updated with all of the finest luxuries one would expect of an estate of this magnitude,” says Joan Levinson, with Joan Levinson Realty Group.

The main residence encompasses 12,000 square feet, and features seven bedrooms, wood-burning fireplaces imported from France, courtyards, a wine-tasting and cigar room, a wine relaxing room, a two-story library, and more.

There are also two additional structures on the property (for a total of 21,370 square feet, eight bedrooms, and 11 bathrooms)—a guest home, and a structure that includes an indoor half-basketball court, 300-capacity club room with bar, an antique fireplace, a kitchen, and an exercise room.

A Hartley Greenhouse custom-built in England is also on the grounds, and includes a vegetable garden and handmade ironwork, and a solar farm atop one of the accessory structures.

“Every area enchants with custom details and elegance. The property impeccably balances large, open spaces with quiet, intimate ones,” Levinson shares.

The home is currently for sale, listed at $18 million. For more information, visit
