PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz., April 22 (UPI) -- Canadian Stephanie Zekelman says she's surprised the $14 million she has agreed to pay for a mansion in Paradise Valley, Ariz., reportedly is a state record.
"I didn't know it was news," the Windsor, Ontario, resident told Canwest News Service. "It's just a vacation home. I have family there, and I've wanted a home there for many years, and that was it."
The 10,000-square-foot in the tony Phoenix suburb means Zekelman will be neighbors with the likes of former hockey greats Wayne Gretzky and Claude Lemieux, jazz singer George Benson and major league pitcher Randy Johnson.
Bob Hassett, a real estate agent representing the seller calls the community "the Beverly Hills of Arizona."
