Hundreds of homes are nestled in the Ahwatukee Foothills, an amazing and quite serene part of the valley. Sometimes, in fact, those in the area feel secluded enough to not even realize they are living in such a thriving metropolis every day. 

Hidden amongst the quiet neighborhoods, this multi-million-dollar home is one of the most luxurious, private, hillside custom homes in the Southeast valley right now. Boasting just under 6,000 square feet of living space, the home offers exhilarating panoramic mountain views as well as picturesque views of the Phoenix valley. This home sits atop the mountain with more than 73,000 square feet of property in the highly sought-after gated community of Eagle Ridge. 

After searching for an amazing property with stellar views, the homeowner applauds the dedicated and hard work of area Realtor Cynthia Worley, Ahwatukee Expert and CEO/Founder of Stella Realty Group, Keller Williams Realty East Valley, who helped to bring the whole thing together nearly five years ago. While there were certain elements of the interior of the home that the homeowners wanted to keep, as well as the Mediterranean style on the exterior, there were some additional changes they wanted to make that brought the entire property together.

For the homeowner, it was important to bring in a transitional style to the home, meaning they wanted it to have both contemporary and traditional elements, indoors and outside of the home. 

There are 5-bedroom suites located in this home, all with custom walk-in closets as well as plenty of space. For the homeowners, that was vital. While style and design were very important to them, the functionality of the home space was also key as well. They wanted to design and implement great gathering spaces for family and friends to feel comfortable. That is what they were going for in the living room; the inviting chairs and table with generous views are a great location to gather and socialize. 

The elegant kitchen and dining space is a custom design that brought the cabinets to the ceiling creating visual interest all the way up. The homeowners took an existing island and made it a larger space for eating and entertaining and updated the appliances so they could create a fully integrated and usable kitchen space. There is an oversized pantry, butler’s pantry with a built-in wine fridge, and the room is completed by the panoramic views from the breakfast room. 

Once outdoors, the property is surrounded by breathtaking views of the Estrella Mountains. The outdoor living space and patio are one of a kind for sure. The backyard opens with a huge, covered patio with delicate and beautiful flooring throughout the entire space. The outdoor space includes a striking fireplace for relaxing and entertaining as well as a negative edge pool. The design outside was done with the intent and purpose of creating a significant gathering space for friends, family, and additional guests. There is also a huge grass area on the other side of the pool that leads out to the end of the enormous property all surrounded by the awe-inspiring views of the mountain range as well as the city lights that sparkle at night. 

As for the front area of the property, the entry to the home is as inviting outside as it is inside. With a 4.5 car garage, workshop, and RV gate all on one level, this home offers spacious parking and a gracious amount of area for coming into the home. 


The master bedroom suite is in its own wing of the house and includes a fireplace with stone mantle and hearth, arched French doors that lead to the private master patio where one could escape for quiet moments of reflection and peace. The master bathroom includes glistening his and hers sinks on custom vanities, specially made cabinetry, and a custom spa-like tub with jets, perfect for a few moments of serene relaxation. The bathroom also includes an oversized walk-in shower, television, and rear patio access. 

The homeowners of this luxury property say so far, all the design visions they had in mind have far exceeded any expectations they had of how the home would look. The eye-pleasing décor throughout runs from floor to ceiling. 

Overall, the property has everything the homeowners imagined and more. With excellent shopping and dining nearby, this home brings about a way of living that will serve their family for many years to come.
