This beautiful development incorporated in 1972, and is located within 5 square miles in Scottsdale, just west of the 101 freeway, from Shea Boulevard south to Indian Bend Road. The community of approximately 27,000 residents lives in a variety of homes, from majestic lakefront homes, to luxury townhomes, patio homes as well as condos on the golf courses.
McCormick Ranch has the distinction of being one of the oldest established communities in Arizona, with approximately 50 different subdivisions. Paradise Park Trails is one of the largest of these subdivisions, with over 275 single story homes (with a range of 1700-5800 square feet) built primarily in the 1970s but with some homes constructed as recently as 2004. This subdivision contains homes from multiple builders, including Cavalier, Camelot (Hancock), Tarantini, Gateway and Golden Heritage.
Another option is Heritage Village (built by Golden Heritage) which contains both single family and patio homes, divided amongst three phases. Heritage 1 homes are single family homes with a 7,000 square foot limit, and were built in 1980-2000. Heritage 2 and Heritage 3 are comprised of patio and townhomes. A third subdivision option is Playa Del Sur, built by Camelot (Hancock) which contains 98 homes, constructed between 1980 and 1988, and is surrounded by miles of greenbelt pathways.
The McCormick Ranch Home Owners Association annual Planned Area Development Fee is very affordable (under $200/annually as of 2015) and takes care of landscaping, as well as the clubhouse, pool and tennis amenities. Some subdivisions may have an additional HOA fee. There are 2 championship 18-hole golf courses within the community, as well as several other courses throughout and nearby McCormick Ranch. The trademark of McCormick Ranch is its 25 miles of green-lined walking paths.
The Scottsdale School District serves family-friendly McCormick Ranch, including Cochise and Kiva Elementary Schools, Mohave and Cocopah Middle Schools, as well as Chaparral and Saguaro High Schools. Finally, this gorgeous community is located just 20 minutes from Sky Harbor Airport and is less than a 30 minute drive from downtown Phoenix.
