The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Tierra Del Norte

Tierra Del Norte in McCormick Ranch is a small, u-shaped neighborhood that is often mistaken for the Paradise Park Trails subdivision that surrounds it.  A pocket of only 21 homes, Tierra Del Norte was one of several subdivisions developed entirely or partially by Hancock (Camelot) Homes.  With construction ranging from 1979-1993, the original models were similar to those Hancock / Camelot built in Vista De La Tierra, Palo Viento 2, Playa Del Sur, Paseo Village and Paradise Park Trails.  In addition to a couple of hybrid plans (Hancock was one of the few builders in the McCormick Ranch area that allowed for a fair amount of customization at the time of construction), there are two homes built in the early ’90s that feature unique layouts.

Located along the Arabian Trail semi-circle East of Hayden Rd and bounded by Mountain View Rd and Shea Rd on the South & North, respectively, Tierra Del Norte in composed of single-family homes ranging from 2078 sq ft – 3572 sq ft.  Following is the statistical lowdown:

  • Average size home is approximately 2924 square feet
  • All 21 homes are single-level
  • 20 of the homes (95%) include private swimming pools
  • The original homes in the subdivision were constructed with block, the newer construction with frame-wood
  • 2 car garages are standard, but there are 3 car garage properties in the neighborhood as well
  • Zoned R1-10 for single-family residential lots with 10,000 square foot lot minimums
  • Lot sizes range from 10,792 – 21,447 square feet (approx 1/4 acre – 1/2 acre)
  • Cochise Elementary, Cocopah Middle and Chaparral High School districts

With ready access to the adjoining greenbelts, residents of Tierra Del Norte can follow Camelback Walk (McCormick Ranch walking path system) to get virtually anywhere in the Ranch.  Cochise Elementary School and Mountain View Park are less than a mile away and accessible without having to cross a major street (the paths lead underneath Mountain View Rd).  Further exploration leads an intrepid walker, jogger or cyclist to the 3 primary McCormick Ranch Lakes (Lake Angela, Lake Nino and Lake Margherite) and along the McCormick Ranch Golf courses.  One could follow all the way to Tempe if so inclined.  In the other direction, one could limp directly to the Shea complex of Scottsdale Healthcare (hospital) to get that bum ankle looked at.

Shopping and dining is readily accessible at the Mountain View / Hayden intersection (Joyful Chinese Dining, Ranch Pharmacy, etc), at the Via De Ventura / Hayden Rd intersection (The Melting Pot, Royal Barge Thai Cuisine, Zipps Sports Bar and Grill, The Village Roastery, etc) as well as the numerous establishments found along the Shea Rd and 90th St corridors.

Near it all, Tierra Del Norte is sometimes overlooked amongst more well-known subdivision names in McCormick Ranch.  If a sizable single-family home on an equally sizable lot in the Northern portion of McCormick Ranch is on your wish list, I encourage you not to make the mistake of omitting this terrific neighborhood from your search.

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.

Cochise Elementary School       Cochise Elementary School Fields

Mountain View Park Soccer & Baseball Fields

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.

View Home Floor Plans for Villa Hermosa

  • There are 108 total homes in Villa Hermosa (all single level)
  • 78 (72%) homes have private swimming pools
  • The average house size is 2044 square feet
  • Homes were constructed between 1979-1985
  • Zoned R1-7 for single family residences with 7000 square foot lot minimums

In addition to the previously mentioned Cochise Elementary School, Villa Hermose falls within the boundary lines of the Cocopah Middle School and Chaparral High School districts – arguably the most sought after district trio in the state.

More About the Scottsdale Unified School District

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.

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Spanish Oaks

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Spanish Oaks

Spanish Oaks is a gated McCormick Ranch townhouse subdivision that lies along the North side of McCormick Parkway.  Adjacent to the newer Meridian on McCormick Ranch, across the street from the substantial HOA dues of the Sandpiper development and just East of the luxury Cuernavaca Segunda (Colonial Encantada) development, Spanish Oaks represents one of the more affordable townhouse options in McCormick Ranch.

Located along the aforementioned McCormick Parkway between Hayden and Scottsdale Roads, both directions of ingress/egress rival the Via De Ventura / Doubletree Ranch Road corridor for the title of prettiest stretch in the Ranch, if not all of Scottsdale.  An easy stroll to the McCormick Ranch Golf Club, the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center, Camelback Walk, Paseo Village shopping center and the Millennium Resort, the view of Camelback Mountain rising behind the golf course and the adjoining Camelback Lake  is nothing short of spectacular.

Spanish Oaks Unit One Particulars:

  • Comprised of 58 properties; 45 of which are single level, and the remaining 13 two-stories.
  • Average unit size is 1664 square feet
  • Each unit was built in 1979 (Diamond Key Homes)
  • No private swimming pools
  • Wood frame construction
  • Primarily stucco finish with tile and partial tile roofing
  • Multiple patios (most units have 2 to 3 separate patio areas)

Spanish Oaks Unit 2 Particulars:

  • Comprised of 60 units; 49 single-level and 11 two-stories.
  • Average unit size of 1639 square feet
  • Units were built between 1979-1980 (Diamond Key Homes)
  • No private swimming pools
  • Wood frame construction
  • Primarily stucco finish with tile / partial tile roofing
  • Multiple patios

2 car garages are standard for both phases of Spanish Oaks.  Golf course lots are available for the outer Eastern and Northern portion of the neighborhood’s perimeter.  Zoned R-4 (both phases) by the city for 4000 square foot lot minimums, most properties sit on between 4000-5000 square feet of land.

There is a monthly HOA fee in Spanish Oaks in addition to the annual McCormick Ranch planned community fee.  The monthly dues are actually quite reasonable when you consider the amenities include a manned guard gate (not the less secure automated type that is favored by most subdivisions), community pool & spa, common area maintenance, as well as front yard maintenance and pest control.

  • Spanish Oaks lies in the Saguaro High School District (Kiva Elementary, Mohave Middle School)

Priced at the more affordable end of the spectrum for McCormick Ranch, Spanish Oaks represents a solid option for those looking at lower cost routes into the McCormick Ranch community, as well as for those stepping down from larger, higher maintenance properties.

Pricing in Estate Los Arboles in McCormick Ranch fluctuates considerably, given the mixed genres of homes. On average, they tend to command in the same ballpark as many of the subdivisions North of Via De Ventura (which typically sell higher than those in the South part of the Ranch due to age of construction, architecture, different elementary schools, additional amenities, i.e. lakes, etc) due to their desirable floor plans, vaulted ceilings, size, proximity to a booming shopping center, and more.

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Heritage Village

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Heritage Village

Heritage Village in McCormick Ranch is a multi-phased assortment of patio homes and single family homes.  Developed by Golden Heritage, phases 1 and 2 fall just SE of the Via Linda / Via De Ventura intersection.  Phase three lies North of said intersection, several subdivisions away (Vista Del Lago, Vista De La Tierra, Tierra Feliz and the Island at McCormick Ranch separate phases 1 & 2 from phase 3).  There is a fourth phase in neighboring Scottsdale Ranch, though it is age restricted (55 and up) while the McCormick Ranch versions are not.

Heritage Village 1 differs dramatically from the other phases in that it is comprised of single family homes instead of the patio homes that have become synonymous with the Heritage Village name.  It actually more closely resembles the Heritage Terrace neighborhood that Golden Heritage also developed than its sister subdivisions.   The 59 homes in Heritage Village 1 were built between 1978-1983 and average 2526 square feet.  All 59 are single level, and 48 (81%) have private swimming pools.  Primarily block constructed with 2 car garages (there are some scattered 3 car garages) and tile roofs, some properties include golf course lots (McCormick Ranch Palm Course).  This phase is zoned R-7 for single family residences with 7000 square foot lot minimums.

________________________________________________________

Heritage Village 2 lies directly South of phase 1.  These patio homes include one common wall and block construction.  The 108 properties are all single level, with an average size of 1922 square feet.  There is a mix of flat and partially vaulted roofing systems.  Zoned for townhouses by the county and R-4 by the city, the lot sizes average between 4000-5000 square feet.   Construction of this phase occurred from 1978-1979.  Like phase 1, the outer ring of homes in Heritage Village 2 boast golf course lots / views.

  • Heritage Village 1 & 2 both fall in the Saguaro High School District (Kiva Elementary School and Mohave Middle School).

_________________________________________________________

Heritage Village 3 is the largest of the three McCormick Ranch phases with 166 individual patio homes.  Sharing one common wall, these properties are zoned townhouse by the county and R-4 by the city of Scottsdale.  Built between 1979-1984, the homes are all single level.  The average home size is 1936 square feet, with wood-frame composing the primary construction type.  Like phase 2, there are no private swimming pools, but there are community pools and spas in both.  While not featuring the golf course lots of the other phases, phase 3 includes patio homes that line the Northern shore of Lake Angela.

Community tennis courts at Heritage Village Lake Angela at Heritage Village

  • Heritage Village 3 falls within the Chaparral High School District boundary (Cochise Elementary School & Cocopah Middle School).

______________________________________________________

  • In addition to the annual planned community fee (McCormick Ranch), there is an additional monthly fee for Heritage Village 2 & 3.  In addition to heated community pools and spas, these two phases also feature tennis courts, walking paths, common area maintenance and front yard maintenance (homeowners take care of rear patios).

Whether shopping for a seasonal or full-time home, Heritage Village offers housing options for most every need.

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Villa La Playa

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Villa La Playa

Villa La Playa in McCormick Ranch is a Dietz-Crane built subdivision that lies on the Southern boundary of Scottsdale’s first master planned community.  Bound by Indian Bend Rd (South), Hayden Rd (East) and the McCormick Ranch Golf Club’s Pine Course (West), this prime piece of Scottsdale Real Estate features some of the better housing values in the Ranch.  A mix of flat and pitched roofs, Dietz Crane added some intrigue to their plans, whereas many builders in this portion of the Ranch tended to lean towards the economical over the dramatic.

Whether because the homes in the South end of the Ranch tend to be a bit more affordable as a general rule, a recent preponderance of foreclosures and/or short sales, or just a temporary anomaly, I believe Villa La Playa represents an undervalued subdivision as of the time of this posting.  Given the pleasing Spanish exteriors, central location, practical floor plans and pride of ownership within the neighborhood, one might expect this golf course subdivision to routinely command a much higher price than they typically do.

Villa La Playa home in McCormick RanchThe 130 homes of Villa La Playa were built between 1977-1979 (as opposed to the early to mid ’70s construction featured predominantly in Paseo Village, directly across Hayden Rd).  All 130 homes are single-level and average approximately 2184 square feet (ranging from 1534 sq ft – 3318 sq ft).  85 (65%) of the homes include private swimming pools.  Homes in Villa La Playa were primarily built with block construction and include a sprinkling of 3 car garages amongst the 2 car standard. The subdivision is zoned R1-7 for residential lots with 7000 square foot minimums.

Villa La Playa falls within the Kiva Elementary, Mohave Middle and Saguaro High School districts.

In addition to the McCormick Ranch Pine Course (homes along the Western edge of the subdivision sport views of the course), nearby amenities include the shopping center at Indian Bend / Hayden (Crust Pizza, Albertson’s, China Lite, Goldman’s Deli, etc), the Paseo Village shopping center (Starbuck’s, LA Fitness, Lox Stock and Bagel, Walgreens, The Vig, Luci’s On the Grove, etc), The Seville Shops & Restaurants (The Cove, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Jamba Juice, Starbucks, Wildflower Bread Company, etc) and the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.
