Paradise Valley mansion — complete with a lazy river — on market for $9.5M

A 12,000-square-foot home complete with a lazy river is on the market for $9.5 million.

Currently owned by a Canadian family under the KJF Family Trust, according to the Marciopa County Assessor’s Office, the home at 5030 E. Mockingbird Lane in Paradise Valley features an 18-seat movie theater and a great room with fireplace and pocket doors that open up to an expansive patio.

“He doesn’t get out as often as he used to,” Grigg said. “It’s a lot of house for someone that’s not using it. He just feels it’s the right time to sell with the current market demand for these larger estates on larger parcels of land.”

Scottsdale-based Cullum Homes built the home in 2004 on 2.14 acres.

Originally, the home was meant for a former Phoenix Suns player, who never got a chance to move in because he got traded before construction was completed.

That was the first time Cullum Homes ever built a home where the original buyer never got to even dive into the pool or sleep in the house, said Rod Cullum , owner of Cullum Homes.

The home includes a separate two-bedroom guest house that has its own great room with fireplace and pocket doors that open the patio area, a full kitchen with bar seating and a two-car garage, Grigg said.

“We’ve already had a handful of showings on the property for people who have expressed interest, especially people from out of state,” Grigg said. “It’s well located. It’s what people are really looking for right now.”

The lazy river was built by Western Sun Pools, owned by John Noel , who played high school baseball with Cullum.

“The day the swimming pool got filled, the Phoenix Suns player got traded to New York,” Cullum said. “To this day, he has never seen the finished house inside.”

This home isn’t to be confused with another home in Paradise Valley with a lazy river that sold for $12.6 million in July 2019 .

That home, called the Bramasole Estate, 5335 N. Wilkinson Road, originally was listed on the market in 2017 for $18 million . Bramasole Estate, 5335 N Wilkinson Road, Paradise Valley, sold for $12.6 million in July 2019.
