This unfinished mega mansion that was supposed to have 100,000 square feet of space in Scottsdale’s Silverleaf community has finally found a new owner. A tech entrepreneur Jason Hope began building the compound-like estate five years ago, but construction stopped in 2011 after the Texas Attorney General and Verizon filed lawsuits against Hope and his company Jawa, alleging a text-messaging scheme that cost cellphone users millions of dollars.
It went on the market in 2014 for $14,975,000 as-is or $40,000,000 completed. It just sold for $5 million to Idaho developer Michael Matzek who plans to rent it out once he completes it. Once completed it will be the largest single family home in Arizona and one of the Top 5 largest in America.
Anyway, the compound-like estate on 14 acres will boast 14 bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, n indoor bowling alley, indoor basketball court, indoor swimming pool, wine cellar, underground caves, secret passages, staff quarters, the first residential IMAX movie theater, multiple interior garages, zip lines across courtyards from one part of the house to another, multiple pool complexes with waterfalls, hidden grottos, a lazy river and a three-story night club.
