Picturesque McDowell Mountain Ranch
McDowell Mountain Ranch is one of the largest communities in north Scottsdale and has served as a model for Sonoran desert communities since 1993. Unique to the building community, McDowell Mountain Ranch in its entirety respects and honors the natural desert landscape around communities and homes, adhering to the 1991 Scottsdale Environmental Sensitivity and Landscape Ordinance allowing construction on over 900 acres of donated public land for the ranch while respecting the environment by developing natural corridors, washes and maintaining a proper balance between development and the environment.
The homes within the community are a direct reflection of the idea to preserve the natural Arizona beauty with southwest style architecture in all homes located within 24 separate subdivisions that all offer various amenities for homeowners and renters alike. These subdivisions include: Arizona Highlands, Arizona Vintage, Cachet Townhomes, Castle, Chase, Simarron, Ridge, Simarron Hills, Desert Cliffs, Discovery Canyon, Discovery Trail, Eagle Ridge, Mirador, Montecito, Overlook, Panorama Point, Sienna Canyon, Sonoran Estates, Sonoran Fairways, Summit, Sunrise Point, The Preserve, Sunset Point, The Ridge, Trovas, Vermillion Cliffs. Each subdivision is tucked away against quiet mountain preserve; local traffic is sparse making recreational activities for your family easy, safe and fun. Neighborhoods frequently put on annual parties for holidays and host social events for adults only, enabling you to get to know your neighbors with no pressure. During the hot summer months each pool is fully equipped for kids and adults alike and amenities range from resort style casitas to active splash pads for the kids. Additionally, park space is reserved for family picnics, playground activities, greenbelts for sports and covered spaces for birthday parties.
