McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale’s first premier master-planned community, is known for its lush greenery and miles of multi-use paths that are used by walkers, runners, bicyclists and roller bladders on a daily basis. These grass-lined paths are more than 25 miles long and are connected by parks, public tennis courts and seven man-made lakes. The community is also part of the City of Scottsdale’s Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt, which has 11 miles of greenbelts that traverses through the heart of Scottsdale and consists of parks, lakes, and golf courses.
Many consider McCormick Ranch real estate as “central Scottsdale”, with the area bordered by Indian Bend Rd, Shea Blvd, Scottsdale Rd, and the 101 freeway. The community has breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain and consists of 50 individual subdivisions and approximately 23,000 residents. Housing options vary from apartments and condominiums to real estate ranging from starter homes to multi-million dollar properties.
