The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: El Paseo

El Paseo is a McCormick Ranch patio home subdivision located at the SE corner of Hayden & Via Linda Rds in Scottsdale, AZ.  Developed by Malouf between 1980-1984, these homes are hybrids between single-family detached properties and traditional attached townhouse/condo properties (El Paseo is legally classified as townhouse ownership).  In essence, they are unique homes that have the look and feel of single family homes (with the exception of 1 common wall with neighbor), just without the expansive backyards that low-maintenance living enthusiasts abhor.  Each El Paseo home does include of small, private backyard, many even with private pools, so they are ideal for those looking for the best of both ownership worlds:  More privacy than a typical townhouse affords, and fewer maintenance headaches than a single family home entails (HOA maintains front yard).

Featuring 141 total homes, 136 are single-level (allowing for even more privacy) and 76 (54%) feature private swimming pools.  Homes in the community average approximately 2012 square feet, feature frame-wood construction and 2 car garages.  Zoned TH by the county (townhouse) and R-4 by the city (residential with minimum 4000 square foot lots), most El Paseo patio homes sit on a lot in the 6000-7000 square foot range.

Surrounded by the more expensive single-family subdivisions of Estados De La Mancha and Playa Del Sur (amongst others), El Paseo offers a more affordable option for those looking to move into the North part of McCormick Ranch on a lesser budget.  Within close proximity of the greenbelt (Camelback Walk), parks (Mountain View Park, in particular), lakes (Lake Angela, Lake Nino and Lake Margherite), restaurants (The Melting Pot, Zipps, Royal Barge, Joyful Chinese, Leccabaffi, Butters, etc), shops, golf (McCormick Ranch Golf Club – Palm and Pine Courses) and everything else McCormick Ranch has to offer, El Paseo appeals to people from all walks of life who like a little privacy stirred in with their low-maintenance living.
