Located in the heart of Arizona’s most affluent town of Paradise Valley, luxury living and modular design meet at the remaining multimillion-dollar home on the 4.5-acre, three-home compound of Optima Paradise Valley.

Situated on more than one acre, the remaining 2,641-square-foot home is priced at $3.99 million and is designed with privacy, comfort and convenience in mind, a press release stated.

The compound was developed by award-winning real estate firm Optima and designed by internationally recognized architects David Hovey Jr. and David C. Hovey.

The homes within Optima Paradise Valley were created using the patent-pending Optima DCHGlobal Modular Factory Built Building System, which is a proprietary architectural system developed by Hovey Jr. and Hovey Sr. that synchronizes standardization with design flexibility in an entirely factory-produced modular system. Building modules are based on Vierendeel steel trusses and can be transported by truck to the site and hoisted into place atop concrete piers by crane, according to the release.

This residence showcases three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a spacious chef-grade kitchen adorned with high-end appliances, a three-car garage and a two-bedroom, two-bathroom stand-alone guest house. In addition to the views of Camelback and Mummy mountains, the home features a courtyard with entertainment space, a lap pool and spa, a fire pit, an outdoor kitchen and a covered patio that seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living.

The other two homes, which are nearly identical to the remaining home but have an additional 14×36-foot module which adds 489 square feet to the guest houses, have already sold.

The remaining Optima Paradise Valley home is composed of seven steel modules ranging from 18×72 feet to 12×24 feet. The primary house is made up of two 18×72-foot staggered modules connected at the long sides, with three smaller 12×24-foot modules forming the attached three-car garage. The home has a detached guest house comprised of a 14×54-foot module.

“This desert dwelling, ideally situated within the highly coveted town of Paradise Valley, encapsulates a modern interpretation of the old Arizona, compound-style of living,” President and COO Hovey Jr. said in the release. “We knew we had the opportunity to bring something truly special to the market in terms of style, sustainability and process. With these homes located next to one another, their contemporary design relates to one another while still standing out against the Sonoran Desert’s natural terrain. With two of the homes selling within a few months of hitting the market, we know that homeowners are looking for low-impact homes with elevated, upscale design that exemplify luxury living in the Valley.”

The glass and steel truss structure create a transparent design that erases the boundaries between the inside and outside to bring in abundant natural light, while sunshades above the windows shelter the interiors from the desert heat and direct sunlight, the release stated. Punched horizontal panels mounted on the exterior provide both shading and privacy to select areas. Outside, above the courtyard entertainment space, there are elevated horizontal screens that provide shade for the outdoor areas and cast shadow patterns.

The home has been designed with sustainability in mind and is equipped with high-efficiency Variable Refrigerant Flow HVAC systems, which enables the temperature within each room to be controlled independently from the others, as well as all electric appliances and structural steel that has a high-recycled content. The home can also accommodate the future installation of a solar power collection system.

The Optima DCHGlobal MFB homes only take days to fabricate, last longer than a traditional single-family home, reduce waste from the construction process, require less maintenance and utilize the highest quality of building components and finishes, according to the release. Currently, only three other homes have been built using this system, which provides residents with an exclusive homeownership opportunity.

Located within minutes from Scottsdale, Optima Paradise Valley’s location offers residents accessibility to a variety of the area’s most popular outdoor experiences, including world-class golf, hikes and biking trails, as well as some of the state’s acclaimed dining destinations, high-end shopping, entertainment and five-star resorts.
