December’s Priciest Home

Wonder if the Cauffman’s exchanged gifts this year.  If so, it wouldn’t surprise me  if a shiny new sportscar with a bow was hiding in their new 12 car garage.  Robert and Rosalind Cauffman picked up December’s priciest home for a cool $5,000,000.  One heck of a discount off the original listing price of $9,950,000.

Here’s a home that looks like it’s straight from the old country.  Could have been used in a scene of a Harry Potter movie, if you ask me.  Tons of rock, wood, iron and heavy details everywhere.  And space that goes on and on.
The Cauffman’s new digs is at 10199 E. Cavedale Drive and sits on just over an acre in tawny Estancia of North Scottsdale.  Built in 2008, the mansion boasts nearly 13,000 square feet and has nearly ever bell and whistle you can dream of. 

5 bedrooms, 11 baths, fully automated art and electronics controls with programming for 25+ TV’s.  Bars, fireplaces and party spaces galore.  And a true man cave: The garage is two levels with room for 4 cars on the ground and another 8 stalls recessed below and accessible by a two car elevator.

Once again, cash is king and gets a seller’s attention.  Closing at just over $385 a square foot, this home sold for well under the trending of recent months. 

Here’s the details:
