The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Villa Hermosa

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Villa Hermosa

Villa Hermosa is a mixed builder subdivision in the Northern portion (North of Via De Ventura) of McCormick Ranch.  Bound by Hayden Road, Arabian Trail, Mountain View Road and the neighboring Estados De La Mancha subdivision, Villa Hermosa is favored by many for its proximity to Cochise Elementary School and Mountain View Park.

Originally developed by Metropolitan in 1979, the subdivision was completed in the mid ’80s by the builder, JA Smith.  The differences between the two genres is readily apparent.  Whereas the Metropolitan homes primarily feature composite (asphalt) shingle roofs and a mix of exposed block and stucco finished exteriors, the JA Smith homes typically boast a stucco finish with partial tile roofs and at least one vaulted ceiling.  JA Smith homes in Villa Hermosa are also readily identifiable by the oversized picture windows that many sport in their front elevations.

Neighborhood amenities include ready access to Camelback Walk (the McCormick Ranch walking path system), Mountain View Park (tennis, soccer, basketball, baseball / softball, playground and recreational center), nearby shopping and dining at the Mountain View / Hayden Road intersection (Joyful Chinese, Ranch Pharmacy, Burger King, Circle K, etc) and access to the McCormick Ranch lakes that lie just West of Hayden Road.

The Metropolitan Homes tend to fall on the lower end of the neighborhood spectrum, while the JA Smith properties comprise the higher end pricing.  That said, I will make the caveat that a few of the older Metropolitans have been taken virtually down to the ground and rebuilt over the years.  Throw all the generalizations away on the builder/investor flips.
