Custom-Home Enclave on Coconino Road and Mockingbird Lane is One of the Last Remaining in Paradise Valley

Scottsdale-based luxury home developer, Silver Sky Development, has announced a new custom-home enclave, Silver Sky, named in honor of the incredibly colorful sunsets viewed from it’s Mummy Mountain site. Silver Sky is a rare, pristine parcel, home to 12 sprawling, ultra-custom estate homes in Paradise Valley, Ariz. The last of its size in this exclusive area, nestled against Mummy Mountain with views of the McDowells and Four Peaks, was once owned by the legendary Cheney “ranch” family. It has sat untouched for more than 85 years.

The 17-acre community was unanimously approved by the Town of Paradise Valley Planning Commission and soon to be presented to the Town Council for consideration.

Silver Sky Development, comprised of Gordon Berry and Heriberto Velasquez, has also named its real estate team founding partners at RETSY | Forbes Global Properties: Chris Morrison, Shawna Warner, Babbi Gabel, and Kirk Linehan. “RETSY | Forbes Global Properties is excited to leverage Forbes’ global reach to introduce discerning buyers and real estate enthusiasts to Silver Sky’s innovative collection of showcase homes, as well as assist those who wish to create their own,” said Morrison.

“We appreciate the Town and neighbors for considering what we genuinely believe will become a treasured landmark in the fabric of this incredible and highly desirable community,” said Berry.  “Staying true to the integrity of the land was foremost in our minds as we worked diligently to create an iconic destination with our goal of making the special Town of Paradise Valley proud.”

“Seeing the majestic mountain views and breathtaking sunsets, we can only imagine how Merle Cheney, the original landowner, must have felt on first site. Bringing this special place to a select few to build their legacy is a promise we do not take lightly,” Berry added.

Paradise Valley can look forward to, and what is soon to be announced, the most well-curated collection of hand picked award winning and world class architects, designers and builder of signature residences. Silver Sky’s development team is committed to thoughtful environment stewardship and sustainability, as well as features that are focused on water and energy conservation. Silver Sky is destined to be the most celebrated place to live in Paradise Valley.
