Hold on to your hats, Homes of the Rich readers! I just got wind of this massive estate that is being built in Arizona. It is being designed by Peterson Architecture & Associates and is going to be a mind numbing 100,000 square feet under roof. That would easily make it the largest home in the state of Arizona and one of the largest in the country. It is being built in the hills of Silverleaf in Scottsdale, AZ. It will resemble both a Mediterranean castle and Italian hillside village.

The ‘smart house’ will boast an endless array of amenities including an indoor bowling alley, indoor basketball court, indoor swimming pool, underground caves, secret passages, staff quarters, the first residential IMAX movie theater, multiple interior garages, zip lines across courtyards from one part of the house to another, multiple pool complexes with waterfalls, hidden grottos, a lazy river and a three-story night club. WOWWWW!!!! Talk about over-the-top! You would never have to leave your house, it has everything you need!


James Bond and Iron Man effects will be the main inspiration and theme of the home. Some parts of the home will look like a reclaimed castle, while other parts will exhibit a contemporary feel. The home will also be surrounded by amazing Berghoff Design Group-landscaped gardens, including an intricate hedge maze.

Peterson Architecture faced a time crunch with a six-month deadline to design the home and get it approved. With hard work and dedication, Peterson Architecture, and the team led by architect Scott Carson AIA LEED, made that deadline with time to spare. The goal is to have the home complete in a record-breaking 2.5 years led by contractor Tom Argue, Argue Custom Homes.  Peterson said, “We are up for the challenge. All of our other projects thus far have prepared us for this major project.”

With extensive experience designing night clubs, restaurants and clubhouses, Peterson Architecture is taking their business to an extreme level without compromising their quality and integrity. “We listen to what our clients want and that’s the strength of Peterson Architecture.”
