Parks, trails, and luxurious amenities in North Scottsdale's gem
DC Ranch is a 4,400-acre community located adjacent to the McDowell Sonoran Preserve in North Scottsdale.

The community is composed of 25 diverse neighborhoods within four distinct villages that interact with shared open spaces to create the sense of living with the land. The first home was completed in 1997, and there are currently 2,800 homes and approximately 7,000 residents on the Ranch.
DC Ranch is made up of four residential villages—Country Club, Desert Camp, Silverleaf, and Desert Parks—each with a distinct architectural scheme and character. The four villages are comprised of 25 neighborhoods.
