Sexy Arizona pad was once jazz guitarist and singer George Benson’s home
If there’s a sexier-looking house in all of Arizona, we’d like to see it. A stunning contemporary once owned by soul-soothing recording artist George Benson is on the market in Paradise Valley for $2.85 million.
Set on close to 2.5 acres, the sprawling 6,044-square-foot home includes such amenities as an air-conditioned indoor sports court, a finished basement and a casita with a two-car attached garage. The hillside perch takes in 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape.
Windows, skylights and stone accents add to the modern vibe. Each of the five bedrooms has its own bathroom for a total of 6.5 bathrooms. Bamboo and tile that resembles hardwood flooring run throughout the house.
The saltwater swimming pool features a spa with a waterfall. There’s a bar, a built-in barbecue gazebo and a lighted tennis court.
Benson, 74, is a jazz guitarist and singer-songwriter whose music largely centers on love and romance. He has won Grammys for such hit songs as “This Masquerade,” “Give Me the Night” and “On Broadway.”
