Property Description

One of the very few un-built upon upper village lots in Desert Mountain with pronounced down-valley (S to SW) views of the McDowell Mountains, city lights at night, winter sunsets, and other mountain ranges up to about eighty miles away. Magnificent! One way to obtain the best version of these views, above the roofline of the house below, would be to build a home with a significant lower level (perhaps for a very large garage), such as the concept drawing included herein in the Documents section, drawn by Rick Daugherty of 3rd Story Architects. That floor plan would get the finished floor elevation up to 3,326', a point indicated on the lot by a marked lathe stake. The views from this elevation are shown in the Photos. Another approach would be to build a terraced home (see ''More'') using that part of the lot that lies even a few feet higher than 3,326'. In addition to establishing this potential finished floor elevation, the lot's corners and building envelope have been staked, and a path cut into the vegetation to facilitate your investigations. The lot to the east/southeast, # 63, is likely to stay unbuilt upon as it has been purchased by the owner of the home above it on # 117 to protect their down-valley views. Please see the Conceptual Plan, a discussion about it written by Rick Daugherty, and a PDF of the topo map, in the Documents section.

Living in Desert Mountain provides very convenient access to the facilities of The Desert Mountain Club, an established, twenty-eight year-old, private club owned and governed by its Members, with a long list of amenities including six Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses (along with four very well-designed golf practice ranges), six clubhouses with eight restaurants, one of the best golf performance centers in the country for swing analysis, lessons, golf club fitting, and golf club repairs; and horseback riding on a fifteen-mile long trail system located in and on top of the Continental Mountains at the rear of the 8,200 acre community (the trail system is an amenity for all Desert Mountain residents, not just Club Members). These trails rise to over 4,000' and provide astonishing views many miles in all directions.

One of the Clubhouses, the Sonoran Clubhouse, is the Club's swim, tennis, fitness and spa facility. A $12,000,000 expansion and renovation of that facility was completed in October, 2016 to much acclaim. Since then, six pickleball courts have been added, along with a golf croquet court and a bocce ball court. It is now a remarkable amenity, adding tremendous value and enjoyment to the community's Club Member residents. Membership to the Club is not included in the purchase price of this lot, but they are available upon application to The Club.

Desert Mountain is in the foothills of the Continental Mountains in north Scottsdale. The Front Gate of the community is typically an easy forty minute drive to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The nearby towns of Carefree and Cave Creek provide most of the shopping Desert Mountain residents need within about a ten minute drive of the Front Gate. Over the years, Desert Mountain has attracted people from all over the United States and Canada, plus a few from the UK and Germany. It is an extraordinarily notable community of its type, if not unique in the entire United States, and deserves thorough evaluation by anyone looking for a gated community lifestyle in Arizona.
