Paradise Valley Gosnell Mansion on market after serving as vacation rental home

Parsons Villas in Scottsdale, a vacation rental company that specializes in luxury properties, has sold one of their luxury homes located in Paradise Valley.

The Gosnell Mansion is a luxury home located at 3265 E. Valley Vista Lane, Paradise Valley, built in 1979 by the president and CEO of Gosnell Development. Deanna Peters from HomeSmart, who listed the property, valued it at $7.95m.

The home was constructed in the same style of the three iconic Pointe Resorts built by Gosnell in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s: The Pointe Squaw Peak Resort, The Pointe Tapatio Cliffs Resort and The Pointe South Mountain Resort.

Around the estate are homes belonging to top executives and professional athletes. Peters stated that some of the homes in the area are worth $15 million.

This 11,474 square foot estate has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It also boasts an 11-car parking garage, a 43-foot RV storage garage, all on more than one acre. The estate also has an attached casita with separate garage and entry.

The resort-style backyard includes a heated swimming pool with spa for eight people, a fountain and swim-up bar in the pool. A putting green is also nearby.

Sean Parsons is the founder and president of Parsons Villas. He said that he was selling this property to invest in another opportunity in Maine.

Parsons initially planned to remodel the house, but he waited until the buyer decided what they wanted for it and sold the home as-is.

Judi Testani, of Testani Design Troupe Inc., had worked with him to update the home's interior. Parsons stated that Testani, the designer of many Fox Restaurant Concepts properties, is currently working on Sam Fox's Camelback Corridor Hotel.

Parsons stated that "Creating an Indoor/Outdoor Experience is something we are good at, and this is a compelling reason for owning a home in Phoenix."

He said that Phoenix is a popular destination for second-home buyers and vacationers.
