Get to know North Scottsdale

A half-hour outside Phoenix and just 20 minutes from Scottsdale’s downtown proper, North Scottsdale has a distinct brand and vibe that’s earned it a rightful reputation among Arizona’s most pedigreed destinations for living the cosmopolitan mountain lifestyle. It’s where wine bars, sumptuous spas, and graceful private homes fade like a desert mirage into the surrounding McDowell Mountains. Resort-like neighborhoods, like the gated Silverleaf subdivision, frame the lush turf of championship golf courses in thoroughly modern luxury. Market Street at DC Ranch and the La Mirada Center attract discerning shoppers near and far, brimming with high-fashion boutiques and haute steakhouses for al fresco night out on the town. No matter what you’re looking for, and especially for fans of a certain club-and-ball sport, North Scottsdale is a hole in one.

Living in Scottsdale

It’s no surprise Scottsdale’s surreal landscape, with its rugged saddle of painted crags peppered with saguaro and the occasional Palo Verde, inspired Taliesin West — Frank Lloyd Wright’s fortress of desert solitude that’s now a popular attraction for taste-loving tourists. More than a suburb of Phoenix, Scottsdale is “The West’s Most Western Town,” a name-brand mountain resort community that’s home to some of the best golf courses in the world. Founded and settled by Winfield Scott (not to be confused with the Mexican-American war hero) in the 1890s, the city wasn’t incorporated until 1951, and the population has since boomed from a meager 2,000 to more than a quarter-million today. The downtown district runs dense with fine dining, galleries, and entertainment, with tony residential enclaves running from its periphery to the mountains. A diverse array of neighborhoods with an endless litany of amenities afford an exceptional quality of life for all who call Scottsdale home.
