NBA Player’s Dream Hillside Estate

By Linde Hyder

A residence of exquisite distinction awaits in the exclusive gated enclave of Diamond Point, strategically situated high above in the sought-after community of Las Sendas. From this vantage point, endless vistas of majestic mountain tops and shimmering city lights create a dramatic backdrop for elegant entertaining, while affording a tranquil haven for everyday living. As owners of this superior property, you will experience a lifestyle that is beyond comparison, yet is just minutes to city conveniences.

Watch the sun rise over the mountains while sipping coffee by the infinity edge pool with its swim-up bar and cascading waterfalls. Breathtaking sunsets and radiant starry nights are best captured on the expansive rooftop terrace, offering 360-degree views of unparalleled surroundings. Carefully placed lighting fixtures illuminate the property from dusk to dawn and set the stage for any occasion. Outdoor events of any size are enhanced with an array of covered patios, dining areas, misting system, fire pit and built-in BBQ.

Setting an unrivaled standard in luxury living, the 12,803-square-foot main house was originally built to meet the exacting specifications of Phoenix Suns basketball player Leandro Barbosa. Constructed with the finest fittings and flawless finishes, the 6-bedroom/8.5-bath layout features unique architectural details such as hand carved Cantera columns, arched doorways, hand-crafted millwork and artistic ceilings. Walls of glass in the main living areas capitalize on the view-inspired design.

Owners will delight in the master suite, luxuriously appointed with oil-infused steam and sauna and Jacuzzi bath. Presenting special spaces for everyone, the sprawling floorplan includes a 9-seat theater room, 2-story indoor children’s castle, a handsomely appointed home office and a fully-equipped gym. Guests are graciously welcomed in the adjoining casita comprised of a full kitchen, bedroom, bath, private patio and separate entrance.

One of the home’s most notable features is the official NBA indoor basketball court with balcony seating, suspension spring flooring and automated glass pocket doors, which can transform the area into an outdoor court when opened. Equally impressive is the generously proportioned motor court and accompanying 6-car garage, which also provides ample storage for residents. Discover a home with an inner beauty that is surpassed only by the natural splendor of its surroundings. Find out more at
