Monterey at Mountain View is two-phased development in the vicinity of Gainey Ranch and McCormick Ranch in central Scottsdale. Built by Monterey Homes between 1990-1993, the two gated enclaves feature larger luxury homes (2900+ square feet on average) on moderately sized lots (approximately 10,000+ square feet on average) that typify the lock and leave lifestyle that many high-end home buyers seek. Full time residents and seasonal residents alike enjoy the security and low maintenance living afforded by these sister subdivisions, particularly if travel is a top lifestyle priority.
In total, Monterey at Mountain View contains 89 developed lots; forty lie in phase one, forty nine in phase two. The majority of the homes are single level (72 out of 89), but there is a smattering of two-story homes (17 out of 89) for those in need of a little more room to roam. Fifty nine of the homes (66%) have private swimming pools. Those who prefer to avoid the maintenance of a private pool have access to the community pool(s). A popular home builder, Monterey is known for an elegant, modern style of Spanish architecture that invokes visions of Santa Barbara and sun-drenched days by the sea. Their homes can be found in planned communities like Scottsdale Mountain, Grayhawk, McDowell Mountain Ranch, etc.
The difference between those communities and Monterey at Mountain View is location.
Many expect that they will have to migrate to the Northern or Eastern bounds of Scottsdale to find relatively newer construction of this quality. After all, many of the surrounding communities that comprise the central Scottsdale zip code of 85258 (McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale Ranch, etc) feature homes built in the 1970s and 1980s. The older floor plans and architecture of those developments are trade offs for the ideal location and amenities. Monterey at Mountain View offers the best of both, however – desirable, modern architecture right in the middle of it all.
With the shops and restaurants of Gainey Village to the immediate South, the restaurants, lakes, parks and walking paths of McCormick Ranch to the immediate East, and everything else you could need at the intersection of Scottsdale Rd/Shea Blvd to the immediate North, you could not ask for a more convenient location.
The excelling school district (Cochise Elementary, Cocopah Middle, Chaparral High) has long been a strong draw for buyers as well.
So whether you are downsizing to get rid of that big yard you no longer wish to maintain, looking for a vacation home that will be secure when you are gone, or are simply after a quality home with modern appeal in one of the most coveted parts of the entire valley, you owe it to yourself to consider Monterey at Mountain View for your new Scottsdale address.

Kierland is a community of homes originally developed in the 1990s by UDC Homes just West of Scottsdale Road, between Thunderbird and Bell Rds. In an area where many of the surrounding neighborhoods contain older ranch style homes, Kierland stands out for those who love the location, but want something a bit more modern.
Standing in the shadows of the world class Westin-Kierland resort and its attendant amenities, most Kierland homes sit on smaller sized lots for lower maintenance. In addition to single-family options, there are condo / townhouse options available as well.
In addition to the resort, this neighborhood lies within walking/biking distance of one of Scottsdale’s premier shopping, dining and nightlife districts: Kierland Commons.
If newer construction on manageable lot sizes in a well-established area with ample amenities nearby sounds like your cup of tea, it’s hard to beat Kierland.
