DC Ranch – Scottsdale 85255 “A Diamond In The Desert” — May 19, 2015

DC Ranch – Scottsdale 85255 “A Diamond In The Desert”

As its name suggests, DC Ranch was formerly a cattle ranch owned by a very ambitious cowboy.  Tucked away at the foot of the McDowell Mountains in North Scottsdale, DC Ranch is a master-planned community that celebrates community, family and luxury living.  There are four distinct residential villages: Country Club Village, Desert Camp Village, Desert Parks Village and Silverleaf Village.  Residential properties range in price from the high $200,000’s to over $10,000,000.

From condominiums and townhomes to villas and custom homes, DC Ranch provides a beautiful, and masterfully maintained residential area for young professionals, busy families and retirees. With 4,000 acres, 2,600 homes sites, and elevations ranging from 1,580-3,840 feet, the community offers spectacular views of the McDowell Mountains, Pinnacle Peak and the city.

DC Ranch is conveniently located in the heart of North Scottsdale ­just 5 minutes from the Loop 101 Freeway.  The Scottsdale Airport is a 10-minute drive, and the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is just 25 minutes away.

DC Ranch is home to The Country Club at DC Ranch and Silverleaf golf courses — two classically-designed courses, each with an elegant, private club — that offer challenging play against a backdrop of white sand bunkers, dramatic mountain vistas and city views.
