A rare opportunity to build a custom home in the heart of Paradise Valley, Ariz. has come to fruition.

The property is located south of Lincoln Drive and west of Scottsdale Road on Quail Run.

The approval comes after several months of conversations, negotiations and plan adjustments that won not only the Town’s support, but that of the adjacent residential neighbors who had originally objected primarily due to a fear of increased traffic along their quaint road. “We truly listened to their concerns and went back to the drawing board more than once to recreate the traffic flow, and with the Town’s help we were able to bring people into our neighborhood from the north, rather than the south which mitigated their concerns,” said TUNA Group CEO, Gordon Berry, the Scottsdale-based developer.

This picturesque and serenely private setting will be home to eight, acre-plus, uber-custom estate homes. Located on Quail Run Road, south of Lincoln Road and north of McDonald Drive, this exquisite community is nestled in the heart of Paradise Valley, offering convenient access to a robust lifestyle, upscale restaurants, shopping and 5-star resorts, and is surrounded by nature’s most spectacular beauty.

“When we first laid eyes on these parcels and witnessed the breathtaking vistas they offer, with uninterrupted head-to-tail views of Camelback Mountain to the southwest and Mummy Mountain to the north, we recognized the opportunity to create something truly extraordinary. We are deeply appreciative of the support from our partners, neighbors, the Town staff, and both the Town Council and the Planning Commission for their assistance in shaping an even more inspired community of which all of Paradise Valley can be proud. We believe this neighborhood will set a new high standard for luxury living in Paradise Valley,” said Berry.

Supported by world class builders, architects, designers, landscape designers, and nationally recognized brand partners, this opulent and iconic community will offer a limited number of signature residences with a host of personally tailored additions for a true one-of-a-kind journey.

Paradise Valley 27-acre parcel loses contract, back on market for $55M

A 27-acre vacant parcel in Paradise Valley that fell out of escrow at the end of December is back on the market again for $55 million.

Located north of Lincoln Drive and east of Tatum Boulevard, the flat parcel is the largest non-hillside property available in all of Paradise Valley and located in one of the premier areas of Paradise Valley, said Joan Levinson, the Realtor with Realty One Group who listed the property on behalf of the sellers.

The property is across the street from the home of John Teets, former CEO of Dial Corp. and Greyhound Corp., who died in August 2011 at the age of 77. Teets didn't want anyone living across the street from him blocking his view, said Levinson, who arranged the $6 million sale of the parcel to Teets in 1997.

Eventually, the Teets family was ready to sell, but were very cautious about who they would sell it to, she said.

"They wanted to make sure it would be a good development," Levinson said.

She listed the 27-acre parcel for $55 million in May 2022. It took several months to get it under contract, she said.

"One of the major buyers got ill so it fell out of escrow," she said. "Otherwise, we would have been fine."

Three sides of the property offer mountain views: Mummy Mountain to the east, Phoenix Mountain Preserve to the west and Camelback Mountain to the south, she said. Within walking distance to Paradise Valley Country Club, the parcel also offers views of Scottsdale city lights to the north.

The 27-acre parcel is zoned R-43, which means it could have as many as 21 lots at 1-acre each, 13 at 2-acres each or six at 4-acres each, she said.

Rich Brock, founder of BedBrock Developers, said he would be very interested in developing an ultra luxurious community on that property.

BedBrock Developers is the developer of several luxury communities, including Crown Canyon and Cameldale Estates in Paradise Valley.

"That is probably one of the most special pieces of land that's left in Paradise Valley," he said. "It's in the perfect location. I would envision putting an ultra luxury product there. It would be expensive, but that location commands it."

Parents react after board votes to close 3 Paradise Valley schools

PARADISE VALLEY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — In a few months, three schools in the Paradise Valley Unified School District won’t just be closing for summer, they’ll be closing for good. The board voted to shut down two elementary schools and a middle school Thursday night.

If you ask the people who live nearby, Desert Springs Preparatory Elementary is the heartbeat of the neighborhood. Parents who spoke with Arizona’s Family said they are feeling a lot of anxiety about what happens next.

“It’s quite emotional actually; I hope I don’t start crying,” said Ashley Hobbs, who has two students enrolled at Desert Springs. “I’m feeling very sad, disappointed, and also very angry.”

She said she’s still processing that Desert Springs will close at the end of this school year. She’s especially worried about her 6-year-old son, Michael.

“My son is in the special education program,” Hobbs explained. “A lot of the other parents are in that same position, and these kids going to a new school is not simply moving them and having them make new friends.”

She said the special education program at Desert Springs has helped her son thrive and she fears the school’s inclusive environment can’t be replicated somewhere else.

“It’s hard for those kids to go to a new school and develop new relationships,” said Hobbs.

It’s not just affecting Desert Springs. In a four to one vote Thursday, the Paradise Valley Unified School District Governing Board decided to also close Sunset Canyon Elementary School and Vista Verde Middle School, impacting more than 1,000 students and their families.

The district said enrollment has been declining over the years, and they expect to save about $600,000 per school when they shut down in July.

“It’s a building. The community can exist anywhere,” said Governing Board Member Tony Pantera during Thursday’s meeting. The crowd of parents and teachers shouted “Shame!” in response.

Many community members shared concerns about a lack of transparency throughout the process, and there have been allegations of open meeting law violations. Parents first learned about potential closures in December, many months after a committee first met to talk about the issue.

The Attorney General is now reviewing a complaint. “The AG’s office has received an open meeting law complaint in this matter and we are reviewing that complaint. I’m unable to comment further,” an office spokesperson said.

Below is a statement from Paradise Valley Unified School District:

“In PVSchools, great care is taken to follow district policy and state statutes. Regarding the Superintendent’s Committee for school closure and boundary review, it’s important to make clear that the Governing Board did not take any action to form or establish a committee for the purpose of reviewing possible school closures or boundary changes. Nor did the Board vote on the committee or control the committee’s makeup, schedule, or purpose.

The committee served only to provide a recommendation to the superintendent and his Cabinet. Thus giving district leadership the ability to form an official district recommendation, which will be presented to the Governing Board for review and vote on February 8, 2024.

In response to the allegations of Open Meeting Law violation, first made in December 2023, the district immediately and proactively submitted a request for input from and formal review by the Arizona Attorney General’s office (pursuant to A.R.S. 15-253(b)). PVSchools is waiting for their expedited review.

Throughout the process, as is practice in PVSchools, the district has taken steps to ensure community feedback and participation while following all applicable laws.”

“The open meeting law violation, while I feel that it was violated, that’s just a technicality. We need to do the right thing. We need to balance both the fiscal aspect and the human aspect,” said Governing Board Member Sandra Christensen during Thursday’s meeting. She is the only member who voted against the school closures.

It’s not clear right now what will happen to the buildings of the three closing schools.

“We don’t know how they’re going to repurpose that building and of course, we are concerned in the area about our property values,” said Jill Lopatin. She’s lived in neighborhood near Desert Springs since 1985 and her two daughters attended the school.

“The fear is if they closed these schools and treated us this way, what’s to say that we move to another school and they don’t end up closing that one too?” Hobbs said.

This is not the first time the district has been through this process. Since 2004, five other schools have shut down and been turned into other services like childhood learning or community education centers.

There is a transition plan in place for impacted students to attend different schools and parents will receive communication from the district about that on Monday.

Cosanti is a historical hidden gem in the Valley!

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. — Cosanti is a cultural treasure tucked away in Paradise Valley. Once an art gallery, a studio and a home all in one, the little gem has grown into something much bigger.

Maybe you've heard of Arcosanti -- or at least seen the exit for when traveling up I-17 from Phoenix to Flagstaff. That architecturally-amazing and ecologically-friendly community first began at Cosanti!

Architect and artist Paolo Soleri created both, beginning with Cosanti in the 1950s. He used "earth-casting" to create the one-of-a-kind structures you can tour on the 5-acre property.

As tour Cosanti, you can watch artists at work as they carry on the studio's legacy! Cosanti is known for its signature bronze bells but other unique pieces of art like tiles and jewelry are created here too.

Cosanti doesn't give tours during the hot summer months but tours will be starting up again soon on September 11th.

Paradise Valley artist continues sculptures despite Parkinson’s disease diagnosis

PARADISE VALLEY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- For years, valley artist William Daggett has been turning nature into art. Known as the wood whisperer, he creates intricate sculptures out of wood. Every year, Daggett and his family travel to the Utah desert to harvest juniper. “I kept an open mind when I found my first piece but could see a bird in it. Then, as I started looking for twisted pieces and it talked to me, then I would cut that limb off and bring it home,” he explained.Through an intricate process, Daggett carefully ...

PARADISE VALLEY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- For years, valley artist William Daggett has been turning nature into art. Known as the wood whisperer, he creates intricate sculptures out of wood. Every year, Daggett and his family travel to the Utah desert to harvest juniper. “I kept an open mind when I found my first piece but could see a bird in it. Then, as I started looking for twisted pieces and it talked to me, then I would cut that limb off and bring it home,” he explained.

Through an intricate process, Daggett carefully and deliberately takes each piece of wood and carves it by hand. “It’s like giving birth every time you carve one. It even shocks me,” he said. But soon, his carving days are coming to an end after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. “It is very disappointing because I know there’s a lot left in me that wants to come out, and I’m not sure physically how much longer I can do it,” he explained.

While in some ways his disease has been debilitating, Daggett says he’s not letting it get the best of him. Now, he’s turning to a new medium by turning his pieces into silver and gold. “The technology today, I can go ahead and create molds of anything that I sell, recreate it, and put it into precious metals,” Daggett said.

Through this, he hopes to continue sealing his artwork without needing to carve. He also hopes to be an example to others, not to let anything get in the way of doing what they love. “You can get through it. I would encourage anybody who has a disability just to do the best they can with whatever they’ve got to work with,” Daggett said.

Daggett’s artwork will be displayed and available for purchase at the Arizona Art Expo until March 24. For more information click/tap here.
