Luxury Condo Living in the Valley of the Sun, With a Near-Presidential Pedigree
The late senator; once presidential hopeful; decorated pilot, prisoner of war, and veteran of the Vietnam War; John McCain owned a beautiful luxury condo in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona. That condo has now landed on the market for just over $3 million dollars.
The five bedroom, six bathroom condo enjoys terrific views of the city and the Biltmore neighborhood, and was the primary residence of McCain and his wife Cindy from 2007 until the time of his death in 2018. McCain was a presidential candidate at the time he and his wife downsized from their larger home in the center of Phoenix to this comparatively smaller condo in The Residences at Camelback.
A Condo for the Man Who Would Be King (and His Security)
The 6,500-square-foot condo comes with a wealth of private parking spaces, which must have been a selling point when the Senator and his wife first looked at the home, knowing they’d need space for their vehicle(s) as well as those of multiple assistants and a Secret Service security detail.
It is also the largest of all the luxury condos at The Residences at Camelback, and includes a large great room and separate dedicated media room, allowing for easy entertaining of larger groups than most luxury condos could handle.
The condo includes multiple patios with views in all directions of the city of Phoenix, the distant mountains, and the four climate zones that exist in the vicinity of the Valley of the Sun. Gleaming stone floors are featured throughout, except for a few of bedrooms where there is carpeting or hardwood floors.
Large interior doors allow for 8 feet of clearance and a high profile look throughout the home.
A Master Suite That Is a Step Above Most
The home’s master suite is practically worth the asking price all by itself. It is the size of many other luxury condos and includes a dual-sided fireplace with its own sitting area. A massive bathroom features his and hers vanities and an elevated, oversized soaking tub. A walk-in closet the size of many one-bedroom apartments completes the master suite.
The built-in fixtures in the walk-in closet could keep an entire costume shop organized and readily accessible. For a man known for wearing what appeared to be the same suit to just about every occasion, this closet can only mean that Cindy McCain has an insanely large wardrobe, or that the senator himself owned hundreds of subtle variations on that “same” suit.
A Home for a Six-Time Senator and Maverick
The next owner of this fantastic luxury condo at The Residences at Camelback doesn’t have to be a six-time senator, a presidential candidate, to be known for restarting diplomatic and economic relations with Vietnam, or even a “maverick” of any kind. This condo is so welcoming and luxurious that it is sure to provide a level of comfort and luxury fit for royalty to whoever buys it, no matter their political aspirations, status as a statesperson, or hero.
