    Really not my cup of tea, but it looks to be executed very well.

    For a Tuscan style house you cant really get better. Don’t like the price though.

    I like this one. First off, a 9,000 square foot house with only 4 bedrooms? That’s great! I’m tired of seeing houses with 12 bedrooms. Not everyone has constant house guests and/or 9 kids. What’s wrong with few but bigger rooms? Fewer bedrooms with a guest house is definitely what works for me.

    Some of the upholstered furniture looks kind of dated and need to be changed, but otherwise I like the interior. Most of the rooms have a lot of detail and character and look well-scaled. I’m a little concerned about the amount of storage in the kitchen, although I realize there’s 50% of the room we’re not seeing.

    It’s a shame that it’s in Arizona. For the same money, this house could be had in the south of France, possibly even with a sea view.

      Amen to everything you said!

      I’m definitely not crazy about the AZ location, but this place is beautiful.

    I like this house…just not in America.
    As Grrowler said, if I am going to spend this money, I am going to have this house in Europe. Definitely not in AZ.

    I’m confused. What makes this house “european”, or even tuscan? To me, it looks very southwestern.

    I think its a beautiful house, with a lovely scale, and wonderful details. The wood beam ceilings are outstanding; especially the one over the outdoor seating area.

    Exterior looks amazing (just look at the first 3 pictures), I love that ‘easygoing’, rustic, basic look. I like the interior a bit less, but that’s still fine.
    It looks like a real home, a lot of the homes listed here don’t.

    But (almost) 10 million is a lot, and it’s Arizona. For me (being European) if I was going to move to the US of A, I wouldn’t move to Arizona.

    So good house, bad price/location.

    seems nice enough for me… but the price? pffft! not in Arizona, perhaps south of France, as Dan said, with an ocean view. The agent’s other listings look as good, and much less expensive. And there is no “babbling brook”for Mak’s dog to play in either!But the climate is good, I hear 😉

    Ooops, Grrrowler said south of France, not Daniel. ( Daniel was so restrained… do you think he’s ill?) 🙂 lol.

    Well I am completely in love with this place. I can picture myself lounging around in any one of those rooms, they all look so comfortable and inviting. The outdoor spaces are lovely too, I love the ceilings, as Mak said. I really don’t see anything here I don’t like. But as they say, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is, and the culprit here is the price and location. And to all those who think the price is outrageous, that’s Paradise Valley for you. Considering this is where it’s located, that price doesn’t surprise me a whole lot, although it is dismaying and more than a little mind-boggling.

      Really it just comes down to personal taste for me. I was born and grew up in Northern VA, which is a radically different landscape from Arizona. Compared to the general climate and environment where I’m from, Arizona is very dry, sparse, and scrubby for my taste. That’s not to say that some of the most beautiful places in America aren’t in the Southwest, because there are some devastatingly beautiful places in AZ and surrounding states, but it’s just not for me personally. Couple that with the ludicrous prices in Paradise Valley and you have a real estate market that I don’t have a whole lot of interest in, but I’m certainly not knocking the place 🙂
