Living in Desert Mountain

Desert Mountain is a private golf community that is based around six Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses.  Many of the homes line the pristine greens and offer panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.  There is a wide range of housing options, from small attached two-bedroom “lock and leave” cottages to large luxurious custom estate homes that sit on the foothills. The luxurious 8,000-acre guard-gated community consists of home sites, custom homes, semi-custom homes, attached cottages/casitas, and is set among a collection of villages.  Within the community are six clubhouses that offer nine tennis courts (1 grass court, 5 clay courts, and 3 hard courts), a full-service spa and a fitness center.

This quiet and rural community is located in North Scottsdale, bordering Cave Creek and Tonto National Forest.  Located in the high Sonoran Desert, elevation ranges from 2,500 to 4,800 square feet, offering slightly cooler temperatures and beautiful mountain views.  There are plenty of trails provided by the surrounding mountains for hiking, biking and riding horses.  Since Desert Mountain borders Cave Creek, residents can also easily enjoy the many stores, restaurants and art galleries that the quaint downtown area offers.  The community is also not far from the many retail stores and restaurants offered at Desert Ridge Marketplace, CityNorth, Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarters.  Carefree Hwy is minutes away and the Loop 101 Freeway is easily accessible.  

Children in the area attend schools within the Cave Creek Unified School District.
