Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Announces a $4.5 Million Record-Breaking and Highest Home Sale of the Year in Southern Arizona

By Rose Law Group Reporter

(TUCSON, Ariz.) — Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to announce the $4.45 Million sale of Tucson’s “Villa Esperero”, a sale which has toppled selling price records in both Tucson, as well as the Catalina Foothills.

The luxurious custom-built home spans 9,000-square-feet on a sprawling 49-acre lot with incredible mountain and Valley views, and represents yet another landmark sale for Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty in Southern Arizona.

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Agents Judy Smedes and Kate Herk represented both sides in this outstanding transaction and guided both seller and buyer smoothly through the process.

Impeccably designed by architect Ron Robinette to synthesize international influences with the natural beauty of Tucson, Villa Esperero is a work of art which is nestled in the exclusive Rattlesnake Canyon Estates. This one-of-a-kind estate is best described as having incredibly precise detailing and meticulous craftsmanship, carefully executed with a wide array of fine finishes including mesquite floors, natural stone & marble.

Located at 6799 N. Rattlesnake Canyon Drive, the 9,003-square-feet includes five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. It sits amongst a beautiful natural desert landscape including myriad of saguaros as well as other desert surprises.

Judy Smedes said after the sale, “It was an honor to be involved with the sale of Villa Esperero at Rattlesnake Canyon once again”. Kate Herk had the following to say about the property: “Villa Esperero is a work of art. It is a spectacular luxury home unlike any other in Tucson.”

Nestled far into the Foothills, Villa Esperero is a haven for peace and solitude, as well as a full embrace of the local landscape and surrounding nature. For guests who want to make the trek out however, this home is nearly custom made for entertaining. With a large and inviting outdoor area, as well as a dramatic great room with a 25-foot ceiling, it has both the hominess as well as the ”wow” factor that will both impress your guests and simultaneously make them feel right at home factor for potential guests: a full grand piano for the musically talented amongst us. Guests will no doubt be delighted as they gaze towards the wall of windows and out at the mountain ranges with the backdrop of piano playing. And that wall of windows along with the vaulted ceilings lend themselves to a bright, open atmosphere with plenty of natural light to illuminate your lifestyle.

The kitchen comes fully prepared to both accommodate a hungry family and a thirsty gaggle of friends. A wet bar is there for entertaining those friends, and a gas range and kitchen island makes it a comfortable and well-equipped place to prepare meals. And should those friends indulge a bit too much, guest facilities are there to ensure that they don’t need to make their way down the mountain at night.

Lastly, and perhaps the most impressive of the “wow” aspects (especially for baseball fans): this home has its own hitting cage and viewing area. Decked out with the logos of major league teams, baseball fans won’t want to leave and the hosts will certainly be amongst the most coveted folks in town.

A truly unique and beautiful property, Villa Esperero is yet another example of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty’s excellence in connecting buyers and sellers for the sale of one of the most impressive and valuable custom homes in the country.
