DC Ranch

Set at the foothills of the McDowell Mountains, DC Ranch is a master-planned community that encompasses nearly 4,000 acres of thriving Sonoran Desert. Modern luxury blends with a rustic-ranch style to create a unique common thread that stretches across the many residences from condominiums to custom homes and everything in between. The DC Ranch community offers a raft of services and amenities including dozens of parks and green areas, miles of hike-and-bike trails that connect the community, as well as the Desert Camp and Homestead Community Centers. These two facilities encompass nearly 15,000 square feet of amenities such as tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, pools, spas and a fitness center. The Village Health Club and Spa is also located there. All of the conveniences and attractions of North Scottsdale and the Valley of the Sun in general are within a short drive, thanks to the Loop 101 that sweeps to the west and south of DC Ranch. Right in the neighborhood, however, residents can find restaurants, shops, child-care services and office space without leaving the community. Market Street, Canyon Village and DC Ranch Crossing serve just about any need.
