PARADISE VALLEY, AZ (CBS5) -

It could become the most expensive home ever sold in Arizona. A massive mansion for sale in Paradise Valley will go on the market next week.

The palatial mansion offers 25,000 square feet of space for $25 million. This house has amenities you've never even dreamed of.

Retired Major League Baseball pitcher Randy Johnson and his wife had the house built and they've lived there since 2006.

The home includes top of the line everything from floor to ceiling. There are seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms in the main house, a guest house and a fitness center situated on five acres.

"A $25 million home; unheard of in Arizona," said luxury Realtor Robert Joffe who is listing the home.

Joffe says it will be the most expensive home ever sold in Arizona.

"It has a beautiful pool with a two story water slide. A movie theater that you cannot believe. A 20 person theater. You walk in and it has a ticket booth and a snack bar. Randy is actually a musician and he's got a guitar selection that is incredible."

Sports memorabilia adorns the house, including Johnson's five Cy Young awards. The estate doesn't have a museum feel. It is not just a showy kind of mansion. Joffe says it's been a good home for the Johnsons and their children.

"It's really a functional home where everyone lives and plays and it's not wasted space," Joffe said. 

The outdoor patio area includes a built in barbeque, wood burning pizza oven and a number of flat screen TVs.

When the in-laws come to town, everyone can keep their distance.

"The guest house is 2,000 square feet,  two bedrooms, three baths and a family room. It's exquisite," Joffe said. "His (Randy Johnson's) wife Lisa is the inspiration behind the house. It was her heart and soul over three years to build the house."

The Johnsons are not leaving the Valley, just downsizing as their kids get older and go off to school.

Joffe thinks the home is out of reach for many professional athletes. He predicts it could become home base to a corporate executive who owns several other houses across the country.
