Arizona’s leading custom home builder, Cullum Homes, which has been building award winning homes since 1985 in the finest neighborhoods of Paradise Valley and Scottsdale is proud to partner with WOW Luxury Properties and present Arizona’s most expensive home to ever be built. Introducing the $75 million Palo Cristi Estate.
Led by Rod and Kim Cullum, alongside daughter Lindsay Cullum-Colwell and son-in-law, Paul Colwell, the Scottsdale-based builder joined forces with David Hersh and his WOW Luxury Properties on the design, architecture, and building of this one-of-a-kind masterpiece home.
WOW Luxury Properties purchased the land last April and immediately partnered with Cullum Homes with the direction to define a next level of luxury in Paradise Valley. The mandate has been to spare no expense in creating a home that is both functional and captures a WOW from every room. Shortly thereafter the team selected Desert Foothills for its landscaping with the same mandate.
“We have built some extraordinary homes over the last 38 years but all of us at Cullum Homes are extremely excited to be bringing this caliber of home to the Valley. With some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs moving here, a lot of them being from California, New York and Chicago, we feel this is an untapped market and this level of a luxury estate is needed,” said Cullum Homes Co-Owner Lindsay Cullum-Colwell.
The $75 million estate is one of four homes that WOW Luxury Properties, Cullum Homes and Desert Foothills Landscape are debuting together.
Hersh says luxury real estate buyers moving to Arizona expect more for their money and that means proper attention to detail and following Paradise Valley’s defined guidelines that have made it the top zip code for decades.
“Coming off a spectacular Arizona sports month which included a $4 billion sale of the Suns, Barrett-Jackson, Super Bowl and WM Phoenix Open, it is time to take a new look at luxury in Paradise Valley. Paradise Valley is the definition of the law of supply-and-demand and there is no more supply. To meet the expectations of the many new residents moving here from around the world, we have challenged Cullum Homes and Desert Foothills Landscape to bring a new vision to Paradise Valley. We are ready now to show the next level of luxury real estate,” said David Hersh, CEO of WOW Luxury Properties.
