With six bedrooms, it was one of the largest and was certainly the most expensive home sold in Maricopa in 2019.
A 4,380-square-foot Fulton Home at 22737 N. Sunset Drive in Cobblestone Farms was sold by its owner/agent for $470,000 in August. It had previously been on the market 11 years earlier for $359,900. The house not only went through major remodeling with lots of custom accessories but also had prime location on a cul-de-sec next to a greenbelt and overlooking a community water feature.
The home included a swimming pool, a spa and a gym. Besides the three-car garage, there was parking for up to three vehicles on its long driveway.
Built in 2005, the house was on the market two months. It sold for $10,000 under its asking price.
In the city, the house with the next-highest selling price was a four-bedroom, four-bath home in Province that went for $440,000. Province had six homes in the Top 10 most-expensive homes of the year. Two were in Cobblestone Farms, one in Rancho El Dorado and one in Homestead North. Outside the city limits, a home on Barrel Road in Hidden Valley sold for $460,000.

The property included the 1,040-square-foot home on a roomy 11,000-square-foot lot that was walking distance to shopping areas, the post office and the courthouse.
