Your Source for McCormick Ranch Real Estate
McCormick Ranch is Scottsdale's first, and arguably greatest, master planned community. Incorporated in 1972, McCormick Ranch was developed in phases to become what it is now today. Known for two championship 18-hole golf courses (McCormick Ranch Golf Club's Palm Course and Pine Course), more than 25 miles of bicycle paths, parks, public tennis courts, 130 acres of man-made lakes (7 lakes total), it is the greenery which makes it famous. With available land not as abundant as it once was, it is highly unlikely that the Valley will see another community as devoted to amenities. These amenities are not just for show either as the lake system and greenbelt (Camelback Walk) were designed as part of a water drainage system. In conjunction with the Indian Bend Wash, it is equipped to handle a 100-year flood. For all of the terrific amenities, the annual planned development fee is a mere $195 per household.
Homes in McCormick Ranch were primarily constructed from the early 1970s through the mid 1980s, with scattered in-fill construction. Development began along the southern boundary at Indian Bend Road and progressed northward incrementally in 3 phases to Shea Boulevard. Bound primarily by Pima Road on the east (though there is a multi-phase condominium development that extends to the 92nd St area) to just west of Hayden Road. Aside from redevelopment of existing structures, there is essentially no buildable land remaining. One fill-in townhouse development is currently under way on the grounds of a former office condo park in the Paseo Village area.
Home prices range from the high $100,000s for a small condo to multi-million dollar properties on acre, golf or waterfront lots. There are two high school districts within McCormick Ranch. Residents south of Via de Ventura Rd are in the Saguaro High School District, while those north of Via de Ventura are included in the Chaparral High School District.
There are 3 resorts in McCormick Ranch: The Millinnium Resort Scottsdale McCormick Ranch, The Radison Resort and Spa, and the Scottsdale Conference Center Resort. Additionally, the Hyatt Regency at Gainey Ranch lies just outside its confines.
Public Parks include the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, Rotary Park, Mountain View Park, Comanche Park, Shosone Park and Zuni Park.
Boating and fishing are allowed on the larger McCormick Ranch lakes (for residents), including Lake Margherite, the crown jewel of the Ranch.
