A $2 Million Arizona House Comes With Its Very Own Field Of Dreams

Whenever a house comes on the market that features a few unique amenities, it catches the public's attention because of just how much it stands out from the thousands of other homes listed. That's exactly what happened with a property in Scottsdale, Arizona that was listed four days ago, as per Zillow. In fact, within that brief time span the Scottsdale home has racked up nearly 100,000 views from curious individuals who want to check out the unusual features.

The home in question was originally built in 1977, but has been significantly upgraded over the years. As the New York Post reported, the current owners purchased the property for just $480,000 back in 2014, and they've certainly put their own spin on the place, adding numerous upgrades and amenities. Now, the listing comes in at just a dollar under $2 million — a serious price bump in just eight years.

With 3,292 square feet of total living space, complete with five bedrooms and three bathrooms, the residence is spacious and move-in ready for any family. However, there are a few unusual amenities, such as a hidden speakeasy and a Wiffleball field right in the backyard, that certainly set it apart from all the other Arizona homes on the market. Read on to learn more about this unusual property that just might be the perfect fit for a buyer in search of a space made for entertaining.

A sports enthusiast's dream backyard

As the Zillow listing specifies, the house sits on a relatively modest 0.58 acre lot, but the owners have certainly made the most of it, transforming it into a sports enthusiast's paradise — and an ideal spot for entertaining. The New York Post reported that the owners who revamped the home and customized it to their needs decided to bring a bit of their New York roots out to Arizona when they relocated, and they opted to build a Wiffleball field complete with a Yankees scoreboard, right in the backyard. The yard is fenced-in with blue fencing that seems straight out of a professional baseball field, with decorative touches mounted on the walls, turf in the center, and even padded bases — everything you'd need for a rousing game of ball.

As if that weren't enough, there's also a 55-foot batting cage to practice your swing. And, for those who prefer to lounge poolside, there's a stunning swimming pool with a waterfall grotto and slide, and a paved deck area nearby where a few tables and lounge chairs could be set up. There's also an outdoor kitchen and bar overlooking the field, so you can queue up your favorite ball park beverages and snacks for your family or guests. Finally, to ensure everyone has space to park, there's a sizable three-car garage as well as a gate leading to a parking pad in the backyard that's ideal for larger recreational vehicles such as RVs.

A private speakeasy and movie theater

If you were thinking the Wiffleball field and gorgeous pool were the only unusual things about this property, think again — as the Zillow listing specifies, there's a unique amenity in the home's interior that is sure to catch any performer's attention: The home boasts a convertible speakeasy named Jilly's, after the current owner, although obviously you could switch up that sign with your own name of choice. It's a bold space with an eye-catching geometric-print carpet, blue walls, and a black ceiling (exactly what you want for a home theater room). There's also another area that pays homage to the current owners' geographical roots, with a large wall mural of New York City on the back wall.

The space has a stage built-in with lights, a disco ball, and a fully integrated karaoke system, so you can have a blast putting on performances for your friends and family, who settle in to watch under the disco lights. However, for those who would prefer a classic movie theater, there's also an eight-foot drop down screen and hidden AV equipment, so the room can be used for whatever purposes you'd like. There's also a formal dining room upstairs, in case you plan to start your karaoke night or Wiffleball tournament with a dinner party, as well as several living room areas for the family to gather in, including one with a stunning white brick fireplace.

A chic and neutral interior

While the Wiffleball field and speakeasy may have you fearing the entire home is done in a completely over-the-top style, that's not the case at all — the whimsical amenities are paired with a relatively neutral interior packed with high-end details, as the Zillow listing photos demonstrate.

The gourmet kitchen features a massive island with stone countertops and a stainless steel range hood paired with an induction cooktop. Nearly the entire kitchen, from the walls to the backsplash, are covered in white Subway tiles, and there's even a Times Square sign along the main wall that again pays homage to the family's New York roots. The space features plenty of storage, crisp white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and dark wood herringbone flooring for a chic overall effect. One of the most eye-catching details, however, is the row of floor-to-ceiling glass doors that provide plenty of natural light when closed, and when slide open, create an indoor-outdoor space where the home's kitchen opens out onto the outdoor kitchen.

The master bedroom has a set of French double doors that open out to the backyard, so you're steps away from running a few bases or dipping your toes in the pool. It also features a large walk-in closet and an ensuite bathroom featuring a neutral color palette and luxury finishes.
