Once the home of former Arizona Diamondbacks player Brandon Webb, this stunning Tuscan-inspired estate located in the exclusive Paso Fino community of North Scottsdale is sure to be a grand slam for families looking for private living and a great place to entertain.

Grace and Grandeur

Enter through an Old World influenced wooden door and find yourself in the midst of the home’s enchanting courtyard, complete with a dramatic stone fountain and built-in fireplace. Once inside, the grand entry foyer provides the perfect welcoming with its bold hanging chandelier and intricate tile designs. Pass through this area into the home’s gourmet kitchen, which boasts premium grade appliances, granite countertops, an expansive island and panoramic views of the backyard. There’s also a cozy breakfast nook that’s perfect for enjoying an early morning cup of coffee or late brunch with the family.

Just steps from the kitchen is the spacious family room, where high vaulted ceilings, crisp white walls and an expansive fireplace curate a feeling of palatial grandeur. The master bedroom recalls the same sentiment with its vaulted ceilings and crisp white finishes, along with views of the outdoors through large windows lining one side of the room. The master bath is fit for royalty with its large Jacuzzi-style tub and adjacent shower, a grand space framed by two Italian-inspired columns. There’s also a fabulous walk-in closet complete with its own organization system that’s perfect for storing everything with the upmost efficiency and style.

As an added bonus, there is also an intimate two-room casita attached to the house with its own garage and courtyard access, providing just the right amount of privacy to guests.

 Entertainer’s Delight

Descend into the home’s magnificent finished basement and find yet another living area and two full bedrooms. However, it’s the extra amenities that make this one-of-a-kind basement an ideal gathering place. Enter its exquisite 150-bottle capacity wine cellar and select a bottle of fine red or white to enjoy with family and friends while seated at the adjacent wet bar. Or curl up on a comfy armchair in the home’s theatre and enjoy a movie projected on the big screen.

The party really starts outdoors in the home’s resort-style backyard.

“The backyard was designed with the kids in mind,” says realtor Andrew Bloom. “It’s one of the largest lots in this subdivision and they chose it because they wanted the backyard to have all the toys and play areas for their kids so they can entertain.”

It certainly does not disappoint, providing a large grassy play area, a putting green, a large sunken trampoline and, of course, a fabulous pool with both waterfalls and a waterslide. There’s no shortage of entertainment options for the adults either, as the yard also has a built-in barbecue and a large outdoor seating area perfect for holding an evening soiree or enjoying a meal while watching the kids play in the pool.

With its bright open spaces, top-notch amenities and abundance of entertaining features, this home definitely scores big.
