A Dream Team Comes Together Like a Symphony to Create a Custom Estate that is a Work of Art
Scottsdale, AZ - $32,000,000
WITHOUT A DOUBT the King of Jazz would
consider Ellington Heights — a sleek and stylish gem
— a superb work of art. Nestled in the sun-kissed
upper canyon of Silverleaf, an exclusive enclave in
Scottsdale, Arizona, the design for this magnificent
estate collected inspiration from the social, artistic
and cultural dynamism of the Roaring Twenties era.
Further, the design journey for this modern desert
prairie-style home included finding perfect harmony
with its Sonoran surroundings.
An absolute dream team has come together
like an orchestra, with award-winning architect
CP Drewett, principal of Drewett Works, award-winning
Claire Ownby, founder of leading design
firm, Ownby Design, and Gary Fries, master builder
and founder of GS Fries Construction.
To that end, every inch of the 17,000-plus squarefoot
home, plus 9,000 square feet of covered
outdoor living space, was contemplated with
discerning intention, understanding the exacting
standards of the high-net worth individuals who
will find Ellington Heights compelling.
It’s a modern estate yet perfectly at home in the Arizona
desert. And, much like the desert itself, the design exudes
understated simplicity, yet is significant in its detail. Envisioned
with only the finest materials and finishes available, the
homeowner can expect perfection at every turn. Open and
airy to accommodate the natural light, the design celebrates
the sweeping views of the valley below, including a unique,
geographical saddle, offering stunning sunsets and city lights
as the day progresses.
With a nod to the era that included the high style of the Great
Gatsby era, architect C.P. Drewett, imagined the three-story
residence with entertaining in mind. Importantly, he considers
the expansive, main floor great room, bar and dining area to
be the soul of the house.
Among the seven-bedroom, ten-bath home’s many distinctive
features, is a below-level, auto-display garage with a car
lift and turntable that can handle 20 vehicles. Providing
an unexpected and pleasant surprise, the subterranean
showroom offers an extraordinary view of the upper-level pool
Infused with history, yet thoroughly modern, this
iconic estate home is a desert gem to be treasured.
