Whether you’re enamored with a fashionable kick-back-and-relax family lifestyle, the razzle-dazzle of sleek and chic urban loft living or the secluded elegance of the high Sonoran desert, Scottsdale’s got it all. A mecca of the finer things in life for a wide variety of lifestyles…family-oriented, executive, singles or couples…the city of Scottsdale boasts unique shopping and living districts, gated golf course communities and intimate upscale neighborhoods.
Filled with charisma and personality-plus and once known as the west’s most western town, Scottsdale is now an all-grown-up sophisticated lady, and just like a majestic matriarch, she enjoys a wealth of experience and passion second to none.
Each community within this seductive charmer’s borders sizzles with its own sense of style. For those who treasure the urban hipster look and feel, look no further. Home to numerous chi-chi nightclubs and restaurants, downtown Scottsdale is just like her audience – stylishly decked-out, ready to party all night long and definitely dressed to the nines. Real estate in this area includes both lock-and-leave condominiums and high-rise, full-time urban condos with garden terraces. Slightly more sedate, the center city is home to the lush garden district, host to handsome family neighborhoods that come alive with luxuriant lawns and canopies of shade trees. Floor plans run the gamut from smaller two- or three-bedroom single-level homes to large homes with multiple bedrooms for growing families. What’s even better is that the Scottsdale real estate zoning regulations ensure that many of these neighborhoods, such as the lovely McCormick Ranch, will forever retain their abundant charm.
Further north, the McDowell Mountain/Foothills area is signatured by gorgeous homes and estates surrounded by the embrace of forever-preserved mountain ranges. Tucked into the spectacular higher elevations, world-class master-planned communities offer extraordinarily private custom homes and homesites snuggled around championship golf courses designed by world-famous golfers and their associates. Nestled next to boulder-strewn mountains and stands of stately saguaros, these very exclusive, brilliantly beautiful plateau communities enjoy cooler temperatures and iridescent sunrises, luminous sunsets and best of all, magical, mystical starlit nights.
Throughout Scottsdale, it’s easy to find exceptional dining, shopping and cultural venues. Parks, hiking and biking trails and outdoor amenities cater to virtually every lifestyle. Particularly in the winter season, events of all kinds abound…it’s a high-end car collectors nirvana, art aficionados wonderland and horse-show heaven for the equestrian set…all of which exquisitely compliment the magnificence of Mother Nature that surrounds this creature-comfort town.
