Monica Monson Interviewed by Scott Pasmore of 3TV for Good Morning Arizona’s Million Dollar Listing Segment for this Scottsdale Home

Monson Luxury Group is always thinking of new ways to market luxury homes and when the opportunity came up to showcase our listing at 9780 E. Gary Road in Scottsdale, we couldn’t pass it up. A little fun, humor and a fabulous tour, you’ll not only discover all of the fabulous features of this special residence you’ll also get to see a showcase on the outdoor living spaces and jaw-dropping pool.

monicascott Inside we explored the beautiful kitchen with custom cabinetry, hidden appliances, and the grand daddy of stoves – the wolf 60″ double oven with 6 burner cooktop and grill – and then the 800+ custom carved wine cellar. On we went to the game room with retractable glass wall overlooking the backyard and cigar lounge, the arcade, full bar and powder bath (complete with a urinal for the man of the house). Then off to the master retreat we discovered the spacious bedroom and sitting area surrounding a large Canterra fireplace and the spa bath with the “car wash” style shower that includes body jets, rain shower head, two wall mount heads and steam shower. Across the way movie lovers will enjoy a theater with reclining seats for 8, dramatic powder bath and wet bar with microwave and refrigerated drawers to satisfy any cravings. Off to the backyard we went with the glass tile pool with 9-seat swim up bar, rain curtains, water and fire features….and oh, did I mention the sunken outdoor family room with 2nd BBQ area and sport court? Play golf on the putting green or take a few swings in the batting cage, there’s surely something for everyone. As if that’s not enough, the 1,150 sf guest casita has two bedrooms and baths and a spacious family room. And, for auto lovers – you’ll get a kick out of the automated underground car vault, limo bay and lift.

categories: luxury real estate, Phoenix Living
 
 


Represents Highest Residential Sale in Downtown Phoenix

PHOENIX (August 19, 2013) – Chateau on Central recently completed the sale of its spacious “double mansion” which sold for $5.853 million. The 11,437 square-foot private residence features a three-story indoor waterfall and combines two of Chateau’s signature five-story brick and masonry brownstones into a single home. The custom residence was designed by Est Est Inc. and completed by A Finer Touch Construction. The sale is a historic milestone in the City of Phoenix as it represents the highest residential sale in the downtown area.

Chateau on Central consists of 21 residences and offers luxury urban living in the heart of Phoenix with customizable floor plans and a metropolitan vertical-living experience. The housing industry has seen an increased demand for this type of “limited edition” urban housing as a growing segment of affluent millennials and baby boomers seek luxury housing with the convenience of metropolitan life. Chateau’s centralized location, and position near the light rail, allows for easy access to downtown’s event, dining, arts, and cultural destinations.

“Chateau on Central offers a unique opportunity for downtown Phoenix residents to enjoy upscale city living, much like that commonly found in New York or Boston,” said Nakia Clark, MSI West Investments LLC, developer of Chateau on Central. “We offer our residents top-notch luxury amenities and fully customizable floor plans to meet each family’s individual needs.”

The Phoenix metropolitan area is the eighth largest growing city in the United States and its downtown area is a hub of activity. Chateau on Central offers the only luxury residences in the area and boasts unique-to-Phoenix amenities such as live-work zoning. Each brownstone is zoned to house small business, work-from-home offices or light retail in the lower levels with living space directly above. Chateau on Central residences offer unparalleled opportunities to the Valley’s upscale, busy professional.

“Chateau on Central is the elite urban living community for those seeking a luxury lifestyle in Downtown Phoenix,” said Monica Monson of Monson Luxury Group, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty who currently represents Chateau on Central. “The significance of this sale proves that affluent homeowners have confidence to invest in Chateau and believe in the progress of Downtown Phoenix’s revitalization. We are truly excited about the current momentum and look forward to what the future holds for Chateau.”

Each brownstone comes equipped with a private elevator providing easy access to all five levels and boasts a rooftop patio and standard two-car garage.  For more information about Chateau on Central, visit chateauoncentral.com.

Brownstone Community Joins Distinctive List of Properties in Pursuit of International Sales

Chateau On Central, the five-story luxury brownstone community located on Central and Palm Lane in downtown, announced it has finalized contracts to work with Monson Luxury Group at Russ Lyon | Sotheby’s International Realty in 2013.
