The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Island at McCormick Ranch

One of a select few subdivisions in McCormick Ranch (and all of Scottsdale, for that matter) that boast waterfront property, the Island at McCormick Ranch neighborhood is a true gem. Hugging the banks of all three of McCormick Ranch’s primary lakes (Lake Margherite, Lake Nino and Lake Angela), the Island is a custom home subdivision which features single family homes of a wide variety of style and architecture.

With 85 improved lots in the neighborhood, there are 74 single-level homes and 11 two-story homes. Zoned R1-10 for 10,000 square foot lot minimums (approx. 1/4 acre), the average house size is 3288 square feet (per the county assessor). 72 of the homes (93%) feature private pools. There is one undeveloped lot left in the community that is privately owned. Sitting on the North bank with a view right down the throat of the Lake Margherite, a multi-million dollar property will eventually replace one of the last pieces of bare dirt in all of McCormick Ranch. Home prices are similar to those of the nearby waterfront community of Vista Del Lago, with lakefront properties commanding well in excess of $1 million (multi-million in some cases), and interior lots selling for considerably less. Most construction took place in the late 1970s through the early 1980s, but there have been homes built as recently as 1998.
