Welcome to Sonoran Ridge 28, a 2,490 square-foot; three-bedroom, three and a half bath; south-facing, free-standing ''Cassia'' model home in Desert Mountain, a highly acclaimed, thirty-three-year-old, 8,200 acre, gated, golf and outdoor recreation-oriented master planned development in the mountains on the northern edge of Scottsdale, Arizona. Its Front Gate is usually about a forty-minute drive north from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The home enjoys excellent, permanent views of the McDowell Mountains by day, and a generous view of twinkling city lights at night in the distance on the Valley floor. When the sunsets are worth watching, you can see them, too, from the back patio. The home was built in 1996 by Weitz Construction and beautifully and imaginatively updated in 2018. Changes include all new flooring (some stone and some hardwood), new light fixtures, new appliances, and opening the kitchen to make the home an open, "Great Room" plan. It is in a central location in Desert Mountain, close to one of the community's entrance/exit gates, and about a two-minute walk from the "Sonoran Clubhouse", one of seven clubhouses members of the private Desert Mountain Club get to use. (Club membership is not included, is optional, and available separately from the Club). "The Sonoran" is the Club's fabulous swim (three pools), tennis (nine courts, including one grass, five Har-Tru, and two cushioned hard courts), fitness, spa, pickleball (six courts), bocce (two courts), and croquet facility (two courts). It also has a popular indoor/outdoor restaurant. The entire facility is virtually brand-new, having been completely renovated during 2016 and 2017 at a cost well in excess of $12,000,000. It is now perhaps the premier facility of its type in the entire Southwest. The opportunity to be a Club Member is a huge benefit of living in Desert Mountain for most property owners. It is the emotional, physical, and social "core" of the place, rightfully internationally famous as a golf mecca, with seven clubhouses, nine dining venues, six eighteen-hole championship Jack Nicklaus Signature courses, four practice ranges, a high-tech golf performance center, and, as of Spring 2019, a seventh course, an eighteen-hole par-3 course, long enough to be rated for handicap purposes. Desert Mountain is also famous for outdoor recreation, with, in addition to what the Sonoran Clubhouse offers, a nearly twenty-mile-long private trail system in the mountains at the back of the property ranging in altitude up to 4,890' available to all residents for hiking, biking, running, and horseback riding. You can get a great workout and the views are just fantastic. The Club's nine dining venues offer a wide variety of food, wine, and atmospheres. No coats and ties required! The Club's membership is catered to relentlessly by an attentive Club staff and Concierge, providing unparalleled service. In a word, the place is "phenomenal". Desert Mountain is a place of surpassing scenic beauty with long-range, panoramic views of Phoenix, Scottsdale, the entire "Valley of the Sun", many mountain ranges near and far, and, of course, Arizona's famous sunrises and sunsets! It is successful, too, with about 1,900 finished homes ranging in size from 1,800 to over 20,000 square feet and in price from about $700,000 to over $10,000,000. Over sixty homes are under construction. Owners have invested over $30,000,000 in individual homes. It has attracted full-and part-time residents from all over North America and western Europe, most of whom seem to have made "having fun" a key priority in their lives. One thing that makes a lot of them happy is real estate taxes that are strikingly lower than what they are used to, particularly if "home" is or was in the Northeast, Midwest, or California. (2019 taxes on this home were only $3,496). The weather is famously sunny. Our risk of natural disasters is extremely low. Being higher and somewhat removed from the city means the stars are bright at night, the air typically much cleaner, and the daytime high temperatures about ten degrees cooler than the Valley floor, every day of the year. If you are wondering what it is like in the summer at Desert Mountain, the answer is "Awesome!", since it only gets over 100 degrees about ten or twelve days a year here, compared to ninety days at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. In addition, the temperatures drop fifteen to twenty degrees at night in Desert Mountain during the summer, a significant difference from life further "down the hill". The lack of humidity means 95 degrees is very comfortable, if you are sitting in the shade. So, being in Desert Mountain on a year 'round basis is a very attractive proposition. Day-to-day shopping needs for Desert Mountain owners are well-handled within about a ten-minute drive by the merchants in the nearby towns of Carefree and Cave Creek. There are 69 restaurants and bars within about sixteen minutes' drive. Our area is famous for world-class shopping, major league and collegiate sports, terrific air service, and a wide variety of cultural attractions. Desert Mountain is within two and a half hours of normally excellent snow skiing in Flagstaff and access is easy to the entire American West, with especially easy access to San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, and a plethora of unbelievably beautiful places in Southern Utah. "Paradise" doesn't overstate it. Thanks for your interest in this home. We look forward to showing it to you someday, helping you learn about the community, the Club, and the area, and helping you visualize what life here would be like for you! In the meantime, enjoy the photographs and "virtual tour" of the home, the photographs of some of the Desert Mountain Club's facilities, and the separate Document with links to a variety of useful websites.
