Arcadia

Arcadia is a little slice of Heaven that spans the South Scottsdale and Phoenix border between Camelback and Indian School Roads. Originally dominated by modest, mid-century ranch style homes, Arcadia today contains a mix of older homes and sprawling, palatial custom homes of all different types of architecture.

Known for its large grassy yards with mature trees, Arcadia is a haven for those who aren’t necessarily looking for the desert experience. It tends to attract those who prefer a little greenery, room between neighbors, and an in-town location. Arcadia is also one of the few pockets where high end homes can be obtained absent a homeowner association, for those who don’t like being burdened with all the attendant fees and bylaws.

Looking for a colonial style home, but don’t think Scottsdale / Phoenix offers any? Try Arcadia.

Ideally located for an easy commute downtown Phoenix, Old Town Scottsdale, the Biltmore area, etc, Arcadia offers a taste of nuvo-bucolic (yes, I just coined that term) living in the middle of the city.

You will need a sizable checkbook to break into the Arcadia Real Estate market, however. The desirability of this community and location dictates that even old teardown properties tend to start well in excess of $500,000 for Arcadia proper. The sky is essentially the limit for the upper end on newer construction. For those on tighter budgets, more affordable options can be had by straying just South of it’s Indian School Road border.

8401 N 86th Way: New McCormick Ranch Listing!

8401 N 86th Way: New McCormick Ranch Listing!

UPDATE: THIS HOME HAS SOLD!

According to Wikipedia, an anomaly is any occurrence or object that is strange, unusual, or unique. It can also mean a discrepancy or deviation from an established rule, trend, or pattern.

According to Ray & Paul, an anomaly is a home in McCormick Ranch with a 3 car garage. Or by alternative definition, a competitively priced home in 2011 that is NOT a short sale or foreclosure.

We just happen to have listed in our hot little portfolio a property that bucks several norms.

While many Scottsdale home buyers will grudgingly accept dated architecture as a trade off for the prime location of McCormick Ranch, we are proud to present a home in the prestigious Rancho Suggs McCormick subdivision that renders such need for compromise unnecessary.

Boasting soaring vaulted ceilings, remodeled interior and exterior features and a unique floor plan (walk through a few homes in the area and you’ll understand how notable that truly is), the property at 8401 N 86th Way pairs the advantages of modern living with timeless community amenities.

Know what else you get with this updated home that you will not find in the newer developments up north? Try a 1/3 of an acre cul-de-sac lot (nearly 15,000 square feet). With two oversized lawn areas buttressing the swimming pool & spa, the back yard alone is worth the scant price of admission.

Property Features

4 Bedrooms | 2 Baths |2867 sq ft | 1/3 acre lot | Pool | Heated Spa | Culdesac | Granite Counter Tops| Stainless Steel Appliances | Porcelain & Travertine Tile | Vaulted Ceilings |2 Way Fireplace | Wet Bar | Remodeled Baths | 3 Car Garage | Plantation Shutters |Covered Patio | Smooth Stucco Exterior | Newer Roof & A/C | North / South Exposure | Chaparral High School District| Family Room | Huge Master Suite | Lake Community | Golf Community | Walking Paths | Neighborhood Parks

Offered for sale at the sublimely low price of $495,900

Still not sold? Why don’t you stretch your legs a bit on Camelback Walk, the multi-use trail system that extends throughout McCormick Ranch, as you think it over. Head west to stroll past Lake Margherite and the golf course(s) beyond. Head east to check out Cochise Elementary, Mountain View Park, Mustang Library … shoot you can walk / bike / crawl to the hospital (Shea North) at 90th St should this once in a lifetime opportunity have you feeling faint.

Did we mention this is not a short sale or a foreclosure? The price will just make you think it’s a distressed property, when in reality it is an impeccable property owned by real live humans. You know, people who can actually answer questions and respond to offers before the end of the calendar year and stuff.

As anomalies go, this wonderful home is a close second to the Sonoran Desert Emperor Penguin.

Don’t let this rare bird go.

Scottsdale Ranch Home Floor Plans

Doing your Scottsdale home shopping from afar?

Already own a home in Scottsdale, but need a copy of your floor plan for remodeling purposes?

One advantage to working with a partner who was selling Scottsdale Real Estate prior the Gadsden Purchase (mild exaggeration) is a file cabinet full of old, forgotten floor plans.  Trawling the catacombs for more of the oldies but goodies that are not readily attainable elsewhere, today’s booty is buried within Scottsdale’s second significant master planned community.  Following in the groundbreaking footsteps of McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale Ranch incorporated the lake and walking path system that earned its predecessor such rave reviews.

Intertwined with the parks and shopping, Scottsdale Ranch offers a wide variety of housing that can accommodate most every need.  From modest condos to lakeside patio homes and monster single family residences, this primarily mid 1980s – early 1990s built community should be on nearly every prospective home buyer’s short list.  Just East of McCormick Ranch, the close in location is near most everything, and boasts larger lot sizes than some of the newer communities further North.  While its sister community earns most of the name brand recognition, many people are lured to Scottsdale Ranch for the slightly newer architecture (cathedral ceilings and 3 car garages, anyone?) to go along with comparable amenities, excelling schools, etc.

By no means complete, please click on a highlighted subdivision name from the list below to view floor plans.  If you don’t see the community you desire highlighted at present, no fear, this is an ongoing endeavor.  We are just scratching the surface.  Check back in to see if our progress has reached the apple of your buying eye.

Just don’t give me any sass for my snail’s pace, you bunch of ingrates.  This is a major undertaking. 😉
