Desert Ridge real estate is a highly desirable area in North Scottsdale. Everyone defines the area differently, but we define the area as south of Jomax Rd, west of Scottsdale Rd, north of Shea Blvd and E of Tatum Blvd. The Loop 101 freeway and HWY 51 are both nearby, making the commute to surrounding areas a breeze. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Downtown Phoenix and Fashion Square Mall are all 30 minutes away or less. The northern part of Desert Ridge real estate still has undeveloped land, but the developed areas offer a wide variety in housing options, ranging from apartments, condominiums, single-family homes, semi-custom and custom homes. Depending on your need, there are a variety of neighborhoods to choose from.
Stonecrest at Desert Ridge is the northern most developed community in the area. The 83 home community backs to the west side of JW Mariott’s Wildfire golf course. The homes offer beautiful golf lot views and were built in the mid 90s by Engle Homes and Diamond Key Homes. The JW Marriott Resort and Spa offers full spa services and offers two 18-hole golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo. The community is a short distance away from the Desert Ridge Marketplace and CityNorth, which offers many stores and restaurants to choose from.
The Arabian Views is just south of the 101 freeway and northeast of the Tatum Blvd/Bell Road intersection. Homes, which were built between 1987 and 1998 by UDC, are primarily single-family with spacious lots and pools. The community is close to Reach 11 Recreation Area, which offers 18 miles of groomed, multi-use trails that are used by equestrians, bicyclists and hikers. The Paradise Valley Mall is a short distance away and offers plenty of shopping and restaurant choices.
The Kierland community is located around the intersection of N Scottsdale Rd and E Greenway Pkwy. Housing options include single or multi-level single family homes, townhouses on golf lots and condominiums that are above the Kierland Shopping Center. There are over 70 upscale stores and restaurants available in the Kierland shopping center and even more available at Scottsdale Quarters, which is across the street. Westin Kierland Resort is also part of the community and offers a full service spa and three 9-hole public golf courses.
There are many more communities available in the Desert Ridge real estate. Because it encompasses such a large area and is in a great location, there is something for everyone. The area is served by the Paradise Valley Unified School District.
