Time is ticking for the sale of a sprawling $29 million Scottsdale mansion, and luxury broker Joan Levinson is on a mission to close the deal before a deadline threatens to take the property off the market. According to a report by the Phoenix Business Journal, the 15,378-square-foot estate completed its construction and received its certificate of occupancy on February 5. Former Coyotes owner Andrew Barroway's impatience is apparent as he has issued an ultimatum: sell by February 22, or he'll take ownership himself.

The mansion, situated at 10944 E. Whistling Wind Way in Silverleaf's Upper Canyon, boasts opulent amenities including eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a $1 million theater, and an 11-car garage with additional space that can showcase up to nine more cars or be converted into a bowling alley or game room. Levinson emphasized the urgency to prospective buyers saying, "If you want to sell it, now is the time," as once Barroway moves in, selling becomes a more complex proposition. A bonus for high-flyers: a golf membership at Silverleaf is included in the purchase, which is a hard sought-after perk given the six-year waiting list for the club.

The pressure for Levinson comes not just from the ticking clock but the uniqueness of the estate; it's a rarity among hillside homes with its majority single-level layout, including seamless access to the garage and pool area without the common inconvenience of stairs. This detail sets the mansion apart for discerning buyers seeking luxury without compromise. As she told the Phoenix Business Journal, "It's quite rare to go outside and not have to go up and down stairs."
