Tucked in the foothills of the sweeping McDowell Mountains, McDowell Mountain Ranch is in the northeast section of Scottsdale. This is a master-planned community sitting on 3,200 acres within the serene Sonoran Desert and nearby McDowell Sonoran Desert Preserve, a 16,000 acre preserve set up to champion, preserve and protect the land. Referred to as “The Ranch”, this community originated in 1995 and consists of approximately 4000 homes built by 14 different builders set up in 26 unique and individual neighborhoods.
A $130 million beautification project resulted in community enhancements such as paved and natural hiking and biking trails, a dedicated cable-TV station, Community Center, and the McDowell Center. The latter gives residents access to a plethora of activities: multiple swimming pools, spas, children’s playgrounds, tennis courts, volleyball and basketball courts, picnic areas as well as a venue for private meetings, events and social clubs (which abound for all interests and ages). Easy proximity to the McDowell Mountain Ranch Aquatic Center as well as golfing at the Sanctuary Golf Course at Westworld, referred to as “Scottsdale’s best value for your golfing dollar.” Sitting on the western slope of the McDowell Mountains, you will love the challenging course which boasts a haven for native plants and wildlife.
