Luxury living amidst the Sonoran Desert
Scottsdale Ranch began development in 1984 and is a master-planned community consisting of nearly 4,000 homes and offers a unique living opportunity with a lakeside, resort-like setting, and offers over 40 different neighborhoods within the main community. Scottsdale Ranch is roughly bordered by Shea Blvd to the north, 96th Street to the west, and extending to, and also south of, Via Linda. To the east, the community’s borders extend between 108th and 112th Streets.
The private 42-acre lake, known as Lake Serena, was developed in conjunction with Scottsdale Ranch Community, Maricopa County, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Although an integral component of the community setting, the lake also serves as a depository for run-off water from the McDowell Mountains and has earned the moniker of an” oasis in the desert”.
Within the community also resides Scottsdale Ranch Park, a public use area, featuring city and community amenities such as a senior center, Boys and Girls facility, shopping center, and an elementary school. The purpose of the park, per the master plan, was designed to allow residents access to multiple types of recreation, shopping, and lifestyle services, all within the community.

Some of these include Fashion Square, which is under 20 minutes away with over 240 shops and restaurants. Visitors can enjoy luxury shopping at stores such as Neiman Marcus, as well as home specialty stores like Crate and Barrel. There are also many non-luxury shops, which adds to the appeal of shopping at Fashion Square, allowing it to cater to a variety of interests.
Restaurants range from popular and casual food court options to more upscale dining, primarily located around the mall’s outer ring. Additionally, several restaurants feature a Happy Hour and other specialty menu options.
Old Town Scottsdale meets the southern edge of the Fashion Square area and provides another peek into the appeal of Scottsdale. Days provide a relaxing stroll through the many streets featuring boutiques, art galleries, shops offering souvenirs and regional goods for sale, bars, and restaurants. Dining options include casual long-time favorites to more upscale restaurants featuring emerging chefs becoming known for their creative and culinary vision.
Old Town is bustling at night, and especially on weekends when visitors take refuge from the work week to enjoy a lively, robust social life. Reservations are highly recommended and can often be difficult to acquire weeks in advance for a table at these trendy hot spots.
If the nightlife isn’t your style, tours are another popular pastime, including walking, trolley, and personalized golf cart tours, and experiences including wine tasting. Personal care services are also available with several hair, nail, and day spa salons.
