We can think of a lot of things we would do with $32 million. Spending it all on one house is not one of them.

10696 East Wingspan Way, Scottsdale $32,000,000

Will this house ever be sold? We have our doubts. Call us skeptical, but we just don't know too many people in the market (and tax bracket) for a 29,7000-square-foot home sitting on 17 acres and offering such amenities as a temperature-controlled wine cellar, theater, basketball court, 7,500-square-foot guest house, caretaker house, pool house, yoga studio, and sound-proof shooting range -- because who doesn't like to shoot off a few rounds after a relaxing hour of vinyasa poses?

At this price, you better be churning out platinum albums in that recording studio.

20450 North 108 Place, Scottsdale $24,500,00

This 20,805-square-foot home with six beds and 14 bathrooms (who could possibly need so many bathrooms?) offers such rich people necessities as an eight-car garage, two elevators, five indoor and outdoor kitchens, a giant pool, a theater, a game room, an indoor reality golf simulator, a gymnasium, a basketball court, a volleyball court, and a rock climbing wall. It's basically its own little amusement park.

5335 North Invergordon Road, Paradise Valley $24,000,000

There's a pretty considerable price jump between this home and the rest of the ones on the list, and for good, albeit gaudy, reasons. Case in point: We're pretty sure this 2013 home is modeled after the one Scarface lived in. The 25,850-square-foot home with six bedrooms and 13 bathrooms features a two-story library, shooting range, wine lounge, exercise room, theater, elevator, plus tufted metallic fabric and neon-esque lighting to really give it that drug lord vibe.

23036 North Via Ventosa Drive, Scottsdale $16,950,000

The bathroom to bedroom ratio in this north Scottsdale estate. Then again, you never know when your dinner guests might come down with a severe case of caviar food poisoning and may need to utilize all 17 bathrooms in your nine bedroom home. In addition to the generous plumbing fixtures this 25,989 square foot mansion features a two-story gym, racquetball court, Olympic-size swimming pool, tennis court, spa, and a 12-car garage (because the notion that all of your food poisoned guests will fit into one ambulance is just plain silly).

No words.

6721 East Cheney Drive, Paradise Valley $16,500,000

Fun fact: We toured this home while it was still being built. It seemed pretty crazy back then. But now that's it done, it's downright ludicrous. This Paradise Valley palace offers 33,000 square feet of living space on top of 3 acres of property. Among its many amenities are an indoor basketball court, a resort pool *with* a lazy river, an indoor theater, and a billiards room. There are 11 bedrooms, 12.5 bathrooms, and the guest house alone is 5,725 square feet. Just. Stop.

 

If we lived here, we're pretty sure we'd saying "To the wine cave!" on the daily.

5837 North Palo Cristi Road, Paradise Valley $16,000,00

Because money doesn't grow on trees (yet), we aren't surprised to see a few familiar faces from out past lists of the most expensive metro Phoenix homes, including this 12,301-square-foot McMansion off the corner of Lincoln Drive and Palo Cristi Road. Apparently real estate agents have yet to find a buyer in need of a 600-bottle wine "cave," an eight-car garage, seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a putting green, a tennis court, a basketball court, a resort pool, and a reflecting pool (because sometimes you feel more like thinking than swimming).

5515 North Saguaro Road, Paradise Valley $13,000,000

For those who prefer having their own space over anything else, this Paradise Valley Spanish Colonial takes the cake with 10,084 square feet of living space and 9 total acres of property. With that amount of land, this five-bed, eight-bath home could easily be doubled in size, at which point we would feel inclined to classify it as a small hotel. The estate offers eight fireplaces, eight patios, a media room, exercise room, sauna, and a large pool area adorned with fountains.

5709 North Saguaro Road $12,750,000

If gated communities aren't your thing, there's always this lovely 15,386-square-foot residence sitting on 4.7 acres of prime Paradise Valley real estate. The high-end home features eight bedrooms, nine and half bathrooms, plus nine additional rooms for entertaining, dinning, and counting your many piles of money. Outside you'll find tennis courts, a two bedroom guest house, fireplaces (plural), and plenty of garden walkways to reenact scenes from a Jane Austen novel.

10966 East Grandview Way $11,500,000

Here we are at the bottom, and by "bottom" we mean probably more than we could ever afford. This 14,512-square-foot estate with seven bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms offers the usual accoutrements of the upper class, including a private elevator, putting green, playground, game room, and a monthly HOA fee that's about half your rent ($347). It sits on 1.9 acres and offers a panoramic view of North Scottsdale, perfect for observing the less fortunate; if there is such a thing in North Scottsdale.
