Pricing in Estate Los Arboles in McCormick Ranch fluctuates considerably, given the mixed genres of homes. On average, they tend to command in the same ballpark as many of the subdivisions North of Via De Ventura (which typically sell higher than those in the South part of the Ranch due to age of construction, architecture, different elementary schools, additional amenities, i.e. lakes, etc) due to their desirable floor plans, vaulted ceilings, size, proximity to a booming shopping center, and more.

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Suggs Rancho McCormick

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Suggs Rancho McCormick

With 255 homes, Suggs Rancho McCormick is one of the largest subdivisions in all of McCormick Ranch.  Ranging from the initial development of the aptly named Suggs construction company in the late ’70s to the infill completed in the late 1980s by Key West (spin off of Camelot / Hancock Homes), the homes are as diverse as they are numerous.

Located just NE of the Hayden / Royal Palm intersection (across from the Mercado Del Lago plaza and Lake Margherite), Suggs Rancho McCormick is unique in that it boasts some of the more affordable single family homes in McCormick Ranch in addition to higher end properties.  The homes built by Suggs (who likewise developed much of the Paseo Village subdivision in the South Ranch) are about the most cost effective option one will find for the northern portion of McCormick Ranch (using Via De Ventura as the dividing line).  Primarily built with exposed slump-block exteriors and asphalt shingle / flat roofs, most range from 1700-2300 square feet.  With low ceilings that reflect the vintage, the lack of architectural drama is less important than the added energy efficiency to those who chose to purchase one of these homes.  The more utilitarian style of these homes makes them an excellent value, given the more expensive housing in the immediate vicinity.  These properties are found along the Southern edge of the subdivision (Royal Palm).  Moving North, the homes become slightly newer (mid 80s).  Homes from this era may feature a tile roof and vaulted ceilings, while those along San Ardo, San Bruno and San Alfredo tend to be of the older variety.

The Key West properties, as well as a couple of smaller builders who purchased and developed a handful of lots, are located at the North end of the subdivision.  The properties on San Jacinto, San Lucas and that line the South side of San Lorenzo are prime examples.  Boasting the soaring vaulted ceilings and full tile roofs that made the brand famous, Key West homes were ahead of their time.   Including floor plans with kitchens that opened to the family room (a renovation owners of other McCormick Ranch homes often have to make themselves), Key West also had a 3 bedroom + den option (most builders were still doing strict 3 or 4 bedroom plans) in addition to one plan with a master bedroom split.  These homes are much more in keeping with the more expensive neighborhoods to the West of Hayden Road, notably the Camelot subdivisions of Vista De La Tierra and Palo Viento 2.

In all, the 255 homes of Suggs Rancho McCormick include 254 single-level properties.  The lone 2-story was created when a homeowner added the second level to a house that backs up to Hayden Rd on 85th St.  173 (68%) of the homes feature private swimming pools.  The average home size is 2156 square feet.  The Suggs properties were primarily block constructed, while the Key Wests and assorted minor builders of the mid to late ’80s primarily utilized frame wood.  2 car garages are the norm, but the neighborhood does include 3 car garages as well.

Lake Margherite in McCormick Ranch

In addition to the aforementioned proximity to Lake Margherite (largest of the McCormick Ranch lakes), Suggs Rancho McCormick is within walkable distance of the greenbelt / multi-use path system known as Camelback Walk.  Mercado Del Lago and The Village plazas on the opposite side of Hayden Road are home to The Melting Pot, Chipotle, Royal Barge (Thai), Zipps Sports Bar and Grill, TCBY, The Village Roastery (coffee shop) and more.  Just beyond these plazas and Lake Margherite (where Camelback Walk crosses under Via De Ventura) lies the first of the McCormick Ranch golf courses (Palm & Pine).
