Scottsdale and Paradise Valley have become a hotspot for celebrity homes. As the valley continues its spur in economic growth *source, more and more celebrities are calling our neighborhood home. Some of our local celebrities include: Frankie Muniz, Michael Phelps, John McCain, Kurt Warner and Bret Michaels.
Former child star Frankie Muniz, known for his role as Malcolm in "Malcolm in the Middle", recently put his Scottsdale abode on the market. Located in the elegant Estancia golf community, this home has 6,200 square feet of space and includes five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The home includes soaring ceilings, and a giant window overlooking the pool with three waterfalls that are set in the beautiful desert landscape and offers panoramic views of Pinnacle Peak. Muniz bought the home in 2009 and is asking $2.795 million for it today. This isn't his first venture in Arizona real estate. In 2014 he sold his home in the Arcadia neighborhood for $2.85 million.
