Bella The Ball

An estate with a ballroom hits the market. 

The living room’s arched windows frame views of nearby Camelback Mountain.

The lower-level ballroom can accommodate up to 200 for fundraisers and parties.

The entry includes an artistic iron and glass front door.  

With a hillside location on Paradise Valley’s Mummy Mountain, resortlike amenities and 20,000 square feet of luxurious space, Bella Paradiso—as this estate is called—is an entertainer’s dream.

The six-bedroom, 10-bath house features a lower-level ballroom with its own entrance that can accommodate up to 200 guests for fundraisers and festivities, while the chef’s kitchen includes two islands, marble countertops and a sizable butler’s pantry. Don’t need a ballroom? The space can double as a showroom-style garage, accommodating up to 20 special vehicles.

The European-influenced home, done by Scottsdale interior designer Jamie Herzlinger, is decorated in a glamorous golden-era motif, with luxe furnishings and fabrics. Details include touches like arched windows, crown moulding, wainscoting, and a dramatic glass and iron front door. The home is being offered with furnishings.

Other special amenities include a wine cellar, a wood-paneled office with mountain views and a private master suite that boasts enough closet space for a serious fashion collector.

Outdoors, the pool and lawn area overlook Camelback Mountain, while numerous decks are positioned to capture sunset moments. Listed at $22.8 million, Frank Aazami, 480.266.0240, or Jean-Michel Edery, 480.747.4795, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s Private Client Group
