The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Heritage Village

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Heritage Village

Heritage Village in McCormick Ranch is a multi-phased assortment of patio homes and single family homes.  Developed by Golden Heritage, phases 1 and 2 fall just SE of the Via Linda / Via De Ventura intersection.  Phase three lies North of said intersection, several subdivisions away (Vista Del Lago, Vista De La Tierra, Tierra Feliz and the Island at McCormick Ranch separate phases 1 & 2 from phase 3).  There is a fourth phase in neighboring Scottsdale Ranch, though it is age restricted (55 and up) while the McCormick Ranch versions are not.

Heritage Village 1 differs dramatically from the other phases in that it is comprised of single family homes instead of the patio homes that have become synonymous with the Heritage Village name.  It actually more closely resembles the Heritage Terrace neighborhood that Golden Heritage also developed than its sister subdivisions.   The 59 homes in Heritage Village 1 were built between 1978-1983 and average 2526 square feet.  All 59 are single level, and 48 (81%) have private swimming pools.  Primarily block constructed with 2 car garages (there are some scattered 3 car garages) and tile roofs, some properties include golf course lots (McCormick Ranch Palm Course).  This phase is zoned R-7 for single family residences with 7000 square foot lot minimums.


Heritage Village 2 lies directly South of phase 1.  These patio homes include one common wall and block construction.  The 108 properties are all single level, with an average size of 1922 square feet.  There is a mix of flat and partially vaulted roofing systems.  Zoned for townhouses by the county and R-4 by the city, the lot sizes average between 4000-5000 square feet.   Construction of this phase occurred from 1978-1979.  Like phase 1, the outer ring of homes in Heritage Village 2 boast golf course lots / views.

  • Heritage Village 1 & 2 both fall in the Saguaro High School District (Kiva Elementary School and Mohave Middle School).


Heritage Village 3 is the largest of the three McCormick Ranch phases with 166 individual patio homes.  Sharing one common wall, these properties are zoned townhouse by the county and R-4 by the city of Scottsdale.  Built between 1979-1984, the homes are all single level.  The average home size is 1936 square feet, with wood-frame composing the primary construction type.  Like phase 2, there are no private swimming pools, but there are community pools and spas in both.  While not featuring the golf course lots of the other phases, phase 3 includes patio homes that line the Northern shore of Lake Angela.

  • Heritage Village 3 falls within the Chaparral High School District boundary (Cochise Elementary School & Cocopah Middle School).


  • In addition to the annual planned community fee (McCormick Ranch), there is an additional monthly fee for Heritage Village 2 & 3.  In addition to heated community pools and spas, these two phases also feature tennis courts, walking paths, common area maintenance and front yard maintenance (homeowners take care of rear patios).

Whether shopping for a seasonal or full-time home, Heritage Village offers housing options for most every need.

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Heritage Terrace

Heritage Terrace in McCormick Ranch is amongst the homes that dot the Via Linda corridor between Via De Ventura and Hayden Rd.  Located on the SW corner of Hayden and Via Linda, this Golden Heritage built subdivision abuts the Tierra Feliz, Mountain View East and Heritage Village (patio homes also built by Golden Heritage) neighborhoods.  It falls within the Cochise Elementary, Cocopah Middle and Chaparral High School districts.

Of the 105 homes in Heritage Terrace, all 105 are single level and 92 (88%) feature private pools.  The homes were built between 1980-1987 and average 2703 livable (heated and cooled) square feet.   The homes are primarily block construction (some have an exposed block finish, while others are finished with stucco) with a mix of tile and asphalt shingle roofs.  Zoned R-7 for lots no smaller than 7000 square feet, most properties fall on lots between 10,000-12,000 square feet, and actually reach as large as 20,000+ sq ft.  Like the lion’s share of McCormick Ranch, 2 car garages are predominant, but Heritage Terrace in one of the few subdivisions where 3 car garages are available as well.

Amongst the relatively few plans that Golden Heritage built in Heritage Terrace, the most well known is the ubiquitous “Plan 40.”  A popular seller at the time of initial development, the Plan 40 is still enticing today for its true master bedroom split (unique placement off the front bedroom is completely removed from the remaining bedrooms).  While common in newer construction, the master split was still fairly avant garde in the late ’70s and early ’80s.  Camelot offered a master split in its Embassy model (Vista De La Tierra, Palo Viento 2, Tierra Del Norte, Paradise Park Trails and Playa Del Sur subdivisions), as did Dix, Tarantini and a handful of other builders, typically in only one model per subdivision, but it was definitely not the norm.  The lone drawback to the Plan 40 for some people is that the master location is directly off the front entry.  While this is bothersome to some buyers, the lure of the added privacy more than mitigates this concern with most.

Current pricing in Heritage Terrace at the time of this posting ranges from the upper $300,000s to the upper $600,000s (by in large, completely rebuilt properties have sold well in excess of that range).

A hop, skip and a jump from the famed walking paths of McCormick Ranch and the lakes, greenbelts, parks, golf courses, shopping, restaurants and other assorted amenities, Heritage Terrace sits in a highly desirable location.  Within walking distance of Butters, Leccabafi, Joyful Chinese Dining, Busters on the Lake, Zipps Sports Grill, The Royal Barge, The Melting Pot and other McCormick Ranch favorites, Heritage Terrace is worth consideration from anyone looking to move into the McCormick Ranch area.
