Kurt Warner Phoenix Home
Live in spacious comfort. Entertain in gracious style. Based on the philosophy of its renowned Phoenix Architect Edward Chavez, this one-of-a-kind home is designed to be a work of living art. Formerly owned by Arizona Cardinals quarterback and NFL MVP Kurt Warner, the exclusive estate is fit for a high profile client and also ideal for a family.
Perfectly set in one of Paradise Valley’s most affluent neighborhoods, convenient to both the Camelback Country Club and Scottsdale Road, this gated, contemporary 11,300-square-foot showplace on over an acre is a perfect blend of stylish entertaining and family living. Dramatic living spaces are framed with unique geometric built-ins, gently sloping curves and architecturally-designed elements. The resulting playful combination highlights the spectacular surrounding landscape as natural works of art through the use of both panoramic and architectural windows. Expansive sunny balconies allow access to the home’s vibrant outdoor areas, including pool, fountains and large play area. A state-of-the-art kitchen with bar and casual breakfast area leading to a spacious great room fosters the ultimate in entertaining. Additional living spaces, game room, home gym and office complete this beautifully imagined estate. The home features six bedrooms, including a palatial master suite, five full and one half bathrooms and a separate one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest home.
Unique geometry and an array of luxurious materials combine to make this Paradise Valley sanctuary quite literally a livable work of art. A dynamic circular driveway with stone fountain leads to the front entrance of the home, where a variety of elements come into play. A stone wall and dramatic entry fountain set an earthy mood, while shimmering glass and water features reflect light and air. A smooth desert-color exterior adds warmth, while hard-edged square columns are softened by unexpected curves and unusual angles.
Follow the main walkway up the jagged path, open the custom stainless steel entry door, and enter to the grand foyer of the home. Spectacular and inviting, it’s a fitting first introduction to the unique design of the inside of the estate, waiting to be explored. The dramatic 24-foot-tall space features a custom circular marble, glass and metal staircase as well as an elevator, both of which lead to the home’s dual master suites. Clean, crisp walls accent the smooth marble flooring below, illuminated with reflections from the skylights above.
Seamlessly flowing into the great room and ideal for hosting large gatherings, the gourmet granite chef’s kitchen blends into expansive family entertaining areas, a butler’s kitchen and a spectacular dining room.
Form meets function within this masterfully designed space. Maple cabinetry with frosted glass accents are contrasted by sleek, black granite countertops. A kitchen island with black contoured tile provides additional counter space for preparation and creates a natural gathering place while the chef is on call. Top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and fixtures ensure that there is every feature imaginable to please even the most discerning chef.
A recessed geometric ceiling pays homage to the estate’s contemporary design, while indirect lighting adds warmth to the room. An adjacent bar and breakfast nook, each with seating for up to eight, complete this kitchen and casual dining area.
Separate from this main entertaining space, the formal dining room offers a more private setting for intimate dinners. Featuring ample seating for eight, the room is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors overlooking the home’s natural stone wall. Crisp white walls elegantly contrast the room’s unique black iron chandelier and accents.
The tasteful floor plan offers multiple areas for entertaining, all with unique insets, windows and detailing that makes each space its own artistic haven.
Open to the kitchen and bar area, the casual family gathering area is both warm and inviting. Accentuated by clerestory windows, the area features a curved wall that seamlessly integrates a flat-screen television and speakers within its built-in entertainment center, as well as the main attraction to the space — a dramatic floor-to-ceiling black granite and stucco gas fireplace. Multiple doors lead directly to the resort-like outdoor living space, ideal for entertaining or quiet enjoyment.
On the opposite side of the home, an open living room looks out to the expansive pool and lounge area through dramatic floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. The room’s 24-foot ceiling continues to the top level of the home and opens the area to the floating balcony.
The home also features a light and airy exercise room with glass walls that open to the pool on two sides. A large upstairs game/billiards room is outfitted with a full bar and a large patio overlooking the pool and backyard entertaining areas, which offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
After a day spent entertaining poolside, it’s time to retreat to the master suite, which includes every conceivable amenity for true escape. Soft-colored walls are accented by sleek marble flooring and gently curving ceilings with recessed lighting. Occupying its own unique space in the home, the room is surrounded by expansive and striking views through an abundance of windows and French doors, which open to a private patio overlooking the diving pool and its unique water feature. Enjoy the beautiful views overlooking the pool, or retire with a book to the sitting and lounge areas and watch the sunset.
An incredible en-suite master bathroom that is a work of art all its own echoes the home’s contemporary design. A stunning center island with maple wood and a black glass countertop is divided in the middle by a triangular wall with duo mirrors, creating separate his and her areas and sinks. With round, curved walls, this unique space is accented by an expansive walk-in shower lined with smooth marble tiles and square glass-block windows, a spacious soaking tub and separate room with toilet and bidet.
Each of the home’s additional four guest bedrooms and junior master suite are luxurious retreats themselves. Incredibly spacious, they feature lush carpeting, ceiling fans, recessed lighting, unique ceiling structures, soft cream walls and additional seating or desk spaces.
A spacious, one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house with a separate entry can double as a large office or the perfect au pair or in-laws quarters. Outfitted with a full kitchenette mirroring the sleek maple cabinetry and silver fixtures of the gourmet chef’s kitchen and cream-colored granite countertops, the room is open and bright.
A charming dining table for two, high ceilings with recessed lighting, decorative lighting and a seating area framed by a wall of windows with stunning mountain and sunset views completes this retreat.
The estate’s clean-lined, contemporary exterior design is perfectly paired to its landscape and the outdoor entertainment area. Host indoor/outdoor parties in style. Complete with a diving pool, a unique water feature connects the 62-foot lap pool and spa. The backyard features space ideal for families, with a number of seating and play areas, an expansive fireplace, a kitchen with bar area and an outdoor cabana.
About the Area
Paradise Valley and Nearby Scottsdale, Arizona
Welcome to Paradise Valley. Welcome to private, relaxed upscale luxury living at its very finest. It’s easy to see why early residents used the word “paradise” in naming this jewel in the Sonoran Desert. Today, this affluent town in Maricopa Country is one of the state’s premier tourist destinations with 12 resorts and home to notable and celebrity residents. Nestled in the shadows of Camelback Mountain, Mummy Mountain and the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, this 16-square-mile enchanting enclave is conveniently located between two large municipalities — the City of Scottsdale to the east and the City of Phoenix to the west. From desert properties to lavish contemporary estates, those who are fortunate enough to call Paradise Valley home enjoy an elegant island of multi-million dollar mountain masterpieces, complete with sprawling acreage, peaceful and quiet surroundings, open space and unobstructed nighttime city and mountain views.
Its proximity to Phoenix makes Paradise Valley an ideal resort and golf town, drawing some of the most well-known athletes to the more than 200 area courses. The Paradise Valley Estate is located just outside of the Camelback Country Club, one of the area’s most premier 36-hole golf courses with some of the most affluent neighborhoods in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area surrounding the length of the golf course. Home to NFL, NLB, NBA and NHL franchises and major league baseball Spring training, with the greatest concentration of professional baseball, it’s no surprise at all to see the faces you see regularly on television cruising through your new neighborhood.
Paradise Valley’s reputation for drawing affluent residents to its pristine desert landscape can be attributed to one thing — location. With its mild winters and warm summers, it’s an ideal place for a seasonal home with access to cultural amenities.
The Paradise Valley estate is a short eight-mile drive to the Scottsdale Airport, one of the largest private single-runway airports in the United States. Ideal for private planes, corporate jets and charters, the airport is just moments from delivering you to or from your next destination. About 13 miles away sits the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which offers nearly 1,200 daily flights to major transportation hubs around the world as well as top-of-the-line private jet access and facilities.
Described by The New York Times as “a desert version of Miami’s South Beach,” nearby Scottsdale is quickly gaining notoriety for its arts and culture by day and its bustling nightlife. With more than 100 art galleries and museums, these exhibits form one of the most concentrated collections of artwork in the nation.
World-class museums, guided tours and architectural attributes — including a monument to acclaimed architect Frank Lloyd Wright — dot the area’s major districts. Among the things to do, residents and visitors can experience culinary wonders, including visiting a working olive mill or creating their own vintage at a winery. With more than 600 restaurants, the area has fast-become a culinary capital for even the most devoted of foodies.
Work up your appetite with a hike, bike or trek through the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, which offers more than 60 miles of shared-use trails. Hike to the top of famous local landmark Camelback Mountain and take in panoramic views of the town of Paradise Valley, just minutes from your new home. White-water rafting is also a local favorite to beat what can be very hot summers. A must-do for any resident: Hop in a hot-air balloon to take a bird’s-eye view of your new estate in the desert.
But it’s the explosion of late-night diversions that draws residents and visitors out in the evening. Spend the afternoon picking through the latest trends at the upscale Scottsdale Fashion Square, one of the 20 largest malls in the United States, or among the quaint boutiques boasting one-of-a-kind finds. Head out for the evening to sip at one or the more than 80 wine bars, lounges and clubs in the downtown area.
It’s not just the trendy shopper, elite athlete or resort lover whom the area attracts. Its location has drawn major companies, including Fidelity Investments, GoDaddy.com, The Vanguard Group and Discount Tire Company, among others, to headquarter in the recently-developed area around Scottsdale Airport, known locally as The Airpark.
The area has also attracted a number of other internationally-renowned events, including the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction, known as the world’s greatest car collector auction, as well as a host of other yearly of events, including the world-famous Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show.
