The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Santa Fe

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Santa Fe

One of the most well-known patio home communities in all of Scottsdale, Santa Fe in McCormick Ranch has come to symbolize low maintenance living in central Scottsdale.  Located just NE of the Hayden & McCormick Parkway intersection, this community of 366 homes (cumulatively between its two phases) has become a favorite amongst seasonal vacation home owners as well as with full time residents who simply prefer the lesser hassle living.  With a Western boundary that abuts the famous Camelback Walk multi-use path that stretches throughout McCormick Ranch, homes that back up to it boast gorgeous views of the McCormick Ranch Golf Club’s Palm Course.

Primarily constructed by Ballard, the original Santa Fe subdivision consisted of 125 homes.  Averaging 1979 square feet, 106 of these were single-level, with the remaining 15 two-stories.  Built in 1978 with block construction, none of these patio homes featured private swimming pools.  The subdivision includes a mix of flat and tile roofing, with 2 car garages being the norm.

Legally classified as townhomes (share common walls, ownership of the land on the individual lot as well as indivisible interest in the common areas), this phase of Santa Fe is zoned R-4R by the city of Scottsdale (Resort or residential medium density).  Lot sizes average between 4000-5000 square feet.

Santa Fe Unit 2 (2nd phase) is comprised of 241 properties.  Built between 1979-1984 (primarily by Ballard and the Santa Fe Construction Co.), 210 are single-level, with the remaining 31 two-stories.  With an average home size of 1972 square feet, 7 (3%) feature private swimming pools.  Like phase 1, homes in Santa Fe Unit 2 were primarily constructed with block, feature both tile and flat roofing, and 2 car garages.  The zoning is likewise R-4R, with 4000-5000 square foot lot averages.

In addition to the immediate access to Camelback Walk, use of the community pools and spas, clubhouse/rec room, front yard maintenance, exterior maintenance of the units, blanket insurance policies on the structure and common area maintenance is included in the monthly fee.  There is also an annual planned community fee for McCormick Ranch.

Located directly across Hayden Road from the Paseo Village shopping plaza, Santa Fe residents are within easy walking distance of breakfast favorite Lox, Stock and Bagel, Starbuck’s, LA Fitness, The Vig and other local businesses.  To the North, at the Hayden / Via De Ventura intersection, lie The Village and Mercado Del Lago centers that feature The Melting Pot (dining), Royal Barge (Thai), Zipps Sports Grill, The Village Roastery (coffee shop), and more.

Following McCormick Parkway to the immediate West, residents can stroll down the most attractive street (in this agent’s humble opinion) in all of Scottsdale.  With the McCormick Ranch Golf Club’s Pine Course to the South and Palm Course on the North, pedestrians or drivers are further treated to Camelback Mountain Views beyond the lake at the Millennium Resort.  Tucked away on the North, amongst the Meridian at McCormick Ranch and Spanish Oaks communities is the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center.  And, of course, who can forget about the renowned McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park as a favorite local attraction?

The Santa Fe subdivision falls within the Kiva Elementary, Mohave Middle and Saguaro High School districts.

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Suggs Rancho McCormick

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Suggs Rancho McCormick

With 255 homes, Suggs Rancho McCormick is one of the largest subdivisions in all of McCormick Ranch.  Ranging from the initial development of the aptly named Suggs construction company in the late ’70s to the infill completed in the late 1980s by Key West (spin off of Camelot / Hancock Homes), the homes are as diverse as they are numerous.

Located just NE of the Hayden / Royal Palm intersection (across from the Mercado Del Lago plaza and Lake Margherite), Suggs Rancho McCormick is unique in that it boasts some of the more affordable single family homes in McCormick Ranch in addition to higher end properties.  The homes built by Suggs (who likewise developed much of the Paseo Village subdivision in the South Ranch) are about the most cost effective option one will find for the northern portion of McCormick Ranch (using Via De Ventura as the dividing line).  Primarily built with exposed slump-block exteriors and asphalt shingle / flat roofs, most range from 1700-2300 square feet.  With low ceilings that reflect the vintage, the lack of architectural drama is less important than the added energy efficiency to those who chose to purchase one of these homes.  The more utilitarian style of these homes makes them an excellent value, given the more expensive housing in the immediate vicinity.  These properties are found along the Southern edge of the subdivision (Royal Palm).  Moving North, the homes become slightly newer (mid 80s).  Homes from this era may feature a tile roof and vaulted ceilings, while those along San Ardo, San Bruno and San Alfredo tend to be of the older variety.

The Key West properties, as well as a couple of smaller builders who purchased and developed a handful of lots, are located at the North end of the subdivision.  The properties on San Jacinto, San Lucas and that line the South side of San Lorenzo are prime examples.  Boasting the soaring vaulted ceilings and full tile roofs that made the brand famous, Key West homes were ahead of their time.   Including floor plans with kitchens that opened to the family room (a renovation owners of other McCormick Ranch homes often have to make themselves), Key West also had a 3 bedroom + den option (most builders were still doing strict 3 or 4 bedroom plans) in addition to one plan with a master bedroom split.  These homes are much more in keeping with the more expensive neighborhoods to the West of Hayden Road, notably the Camelot subdivisions of Vista De La Tierra and Palo Viento 2.

View Key West Floor Plans at the McCormick Ranch Home Floor Plans Page

In all, the 255 homes of Suggs Rancho McCormick include 254 single-level properties.  The lone 2-story was created when a homeowner added the second level to a house that backs up to Hayden Rd on 85th St.  173 (68%) of the homes feature private swimming pools.  The average home size is 2156 square feet.  The Suggs properties were primarily block constructed, while the Key Wests and assorted minor builders of the mid to late ’80s primarily utilized frame wood.  2 car garages are the norm, but the neighborhood does include 3 car garages as well.

Lake Margherite in McCormick Ranch

In addition to the aforementioned proximity to Lake Margherite (largest of the McCormick Ranch lakes), Suggs Rancho McCormick is within walkable distance of the greenbelt / multi-use path system known as Camelback Walk.  Mercado Del Lago and The Village plazas on the opposite side of Hayden Road are home to The Melting Pot, Chipotle, Royal Barge (Thai), Zipps Sports Bar and Grill, TCBY, The Village Roastery (coffee shop) and more.  Just beyond these plazas and Lake Margherite (where Camelback Walk crosses under Via De Ventura) lies the first of the McCormick Ranch golf courses (Palm & Pine).

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Country Horizons

Country Horizons in McCormick Ranch features unique architecture that cannot be found elsewhere in Scottsdale’s first master planned community.  Developed by Jaeger (only neighborhood in the Ranch where this builder was active), Country Horizons is a small enclave of homes just South of Mountain View Rd and directly East of Mountain View Park.  The homes on 87th St abut the Mountain View Park soccer fields.  San Victor (Southern boundary) backs up to the greenbelt (Camelback Walk), and the Rancho Antigua Condominiums (conversion) lie just on the other side of Country Horizon’s Eastern edge  (87th Way).

Country Horizons in McCormick Ranch

Built primarily between 1982-1989 (though 13 properties were constructed in the ’90s), Country Horizons features architecture and styling that is a bit more modern than can be found most anywhere else in the Ranch (with the notable exception of the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired Mountain View East subdivision).  Jaeger’s aesthetics were definitely designed to streamline living spaces and add an angular, geometric aspect to the prototypical McCormick Ranch home.  Unlike the sterile front elevations that many modern style homes feature, houses in Country Horizons still bear the warm exteriors (stucco and clay tile) that epitomize Southwestern living. Call it “Spanish Modern,” if you will.  Whatever the moniker, Country Horizons is very appealing given the limited quantity of such homes.

Featuring 67 total houses, Country Horizons is zoned R-7 for 7000 square foot lot minimums.  A bit on the smaller side for single family homes in McCormick Ranch, the neighborhood caters to those in the market for the privacy of a detached residence, but lesser maintenance concerns than those developments whose lots can range between 1/3 acre – 1 acre.   The homes are of primarily frame-wood construction with a mix of full tile and partial roofs.  All 67 are single-level properties, and 48 (72%) include private pools.  Averaging 2630 square feet, the homes in Country Horizons reach range from 2025 – 3309 square feet. The rare jewel of McCormick Ranch that is the 3 car garage can be found with a greater deal of frequency in Country Horizons (particularly in the newer models) than in most other Ranch subdivisions.

One of the few single-family subdivisions in which the HOA maintains the front yard landscaping, Country Horizons also includes an (approximately) 850 square foot recreation center for use by the residents.

The McCormick Ranch Subdivision Series: Heritage Terrace

Heritage Terrace in McCormick Ranch is amongst the homes that dot the Via Linda corridor between Via De Ventura and Hayden Rd.  Located on the SW corner of Hayden and Via Linda, this Golden Heritage built subdivision abuts the Tierra Feliz, Mountain View East and Heritage Village (patio homes also built by Golden Heritage) neighborhoods.  It falls within the Cochise Elementary, Cocopah Middle and Chaparral High School districts.

Of the 105 homes in Heritage Terrace, all 105 are single level and 92 (88%) feature private pools.  The homes were built between 1980-1987 and average 2703 livable (heated and cooled) square feet.   The homes are primarily block construction (some have an exposed block finish, while others are finished with stucco) with a mix of tile and asphalt shingle roofs.  Zoned R-7 for lots no smaller than 7000 square feet, most properties fall on lots between 10,000-12,000 square feet, and actually reach as large as 20,000+ sq ft.  Like the lion’s share of McCormick Ranch, 2 car garages are predominant, but Heritage Terrace in one of the few subdivisions where 3 car garages are available as well.

Amongst the relatively few plans that Golden Heritage built in Heritage Terrace, the most well known is the ubiquitous “Plan 40.”  A popular seller at the time of initial development, the Plan 40 is still enticing today for its true master bedroom split (unique placement off the front bedroom is completely removed from the remaining bedrooms).  While common in newer construction, the master split was still fairly avant garde in the late ’70s and early ’80s.  Camelot offered a master split in its Embassy model (Vista De La Tierra, Palo Viento 2, Tierra Del Norte, Paradise Park Trails and Playa Del Sur subdivisions), as did Dix, Tarantini and a handful of other builders, typically in only one model per subdivision, but it was definitely not the norm.  The lone drawback to the Plan 40 for some people is that the master location is directly off the front entry.  While this is bothersome to some buyers, the lure of the added privacy more than mitigates this concern with most.

View Golden Heritage Plan 40 Floor Plan

Current pricing in Heritage Terrace at the time of this posting ranges from the upper $300,000s to the upper $600,000s (by in large, completely rebuilt properties have sold well in excess of that range).

A hop, skip and a jump from the famed walking paths of McCormick Ranch and the lakes, greenbelts, parks, golf courses, shopping, restaurants and other assorted amenities, Heritage Terrace sits in a highly desirable location.  Within walking distance of Butters, Leccabafi, Joyful Chinese Dining, Busters on the Lake, Zipps Sports Grill, The Royal Barge, The Melting Pot and other McCormick Ranch favorites, Heritage Terrace is worth consideration from anyone looking to move into the McCormick Ranch area.
