A sauna room, an outdoor theater and resort-style pools are among the luxurious features that can be found in some of this week’s most expensive home sales in metro Phoenix.


A sprawling estate in Scottsdale’s Paradise Valley Farms community near McCormick Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale changed hands in a deal between an out-of-state buyer and seller. Paradise Valley Ventures LLC, a company registered in Montana, sold the house to Ken and Jill Gimelli LLC, a California limited liability company.

The 11,080-square-foot estate includes a six-car garage, a separate guest house and a resort-style pool with a swim-up bar. The six-bedroom residence also comes with a sauna room and a finished basement.
