In the northeast section of Scottsdale you’ll find one of the city’s most exquisite jewels – the community of DC Ranch. A premiere residential and golf community located in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, DC Ranch is an exclusive community with a private golf course and all the luxurious comforts one comes to expect from upscale Scottsdale living.
Located at the base of the majestic McDowell Mountains, DC Ranch is well known as a world-class development. Sitting on approximately 2,600 acres in an 8,281 acre community, the balance is incorporated into the neighboring McDowell Sonoran Preserve. DC Ranch actually dates back to 1885, when the DC cattle brand was first registered. Although the last cattle drive from DC Ranch took place in the late 1950’s, it wasn’t until 1993 that the partnership developed to make the community what it is today. Numerous community activities and events help to maintain the small-town feel in the midst of all the modern conveniences.
The Country Club at DC Ranch is warm and welcoming. The hacienda architecture is reminiscent of historic Arizona, and reminds one of the great Western resorts from the 1920’s and 30’s. Positioned in a distinctive setting, this private golf and country club boasts an extensive assortment of activities, including tennis, fitness, swimming, dining and a number of social events throughout each year. The golf course at the base of the McDowell Mountains was designed by Tom Lehman and John Fought, and is one of the premier locations in the valley. This par 72 course is lush and beautiful, thanks to the many elevation changes. The 7,322 yards roll past breathtaking views of the mountains and the city below.
DC Ranch offers homes to fit every lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for a hip condo in the urban Market Street area or a luxurious custom estate home in Silverleaf, there are places that fit every stage of life.
