Where carefree living meets natural elegance
The community of Sincuidados, whose name translates to “without cares” aptly describes the lifestyle it, and North Scottsdale have to offer. This guard-gated community sits on nearly 600 acres and has approximately 400 custom homesites, each built on lots ranging from about one acre to more than two acres.
The Sincuidados homes for sale in the community boast views of Lone Mountain, Pinnacle Peak, and Troon Mountain. Sincuidados is committed to preserving the integrity of the surrounding Sonoran Desert, and as such, has dedicated approximately 70% of its land as Natural Area Open Space (NAOS). Community access is easy with three separate gated entrances for residents.

Did You Know?
The word Sincuidados means ‘without cares’ in Spanish.
Sincuidados began development in 1985, designed as a low-density, non-golf gated community, with the idea that residents would appreciate its true Southwest, quiet, laidback style.
The community of Sincuidados features two lighted tennis courts and a clubhouse, featuring a kitchen and ample sized meeting room, allowing residents to enjoy this welcoming space not only for themselves but for entertaining guests or hosting meetings.
Sincuidados is located less than ten minutes from a variety of award-winning golf courses, including several courses at Desert Mountain, and their newest addition, Seven, the exclusive Whisper Rock Golf Club, The Estancia Club, Legend Trail Golf Club, Troon North Golf Club, Grayhawk Golf Club, and the exquisite Silverleaf Country Club.
Homebuyers are attracted to Sincuidados because of its low density and beautiful Sonoran Desert backdrop, which residents not only enjoy but protect. Numerous trails are nearby for hiking and biking which attract many residents to this low-key, yet vibrant community.
Sincuidados is close to all the daily amenities one desires, from specialty shopping at AJ’s Fine Foods, to Safeway, Fry’s, Sprouts, Target, and Walmart. Starbucks, Dutch Bros, home improvement stores, banks, postal services, and local boutiques and salons are all just a few minutes away.
Several nearby resorts, including Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale, The Boulders Resort and Spa, and Civana Resort and Spa, offer casual and upscale dining options along with spa, beauty and wellness services. Just a few miles north, the towns of Cave Creek and Carefree provide local flavor with many distinct and diverse dining options, coffee houses, wine bars, a tea room, boutiques, and art galleries.
Minutes away from Sincuidados in Cave Creek, residents can go back in time and enjoy an afternoon strolling the western-themed streets of Frontier Town, one of the oldest western towns in Arizona. For well over 50 years, Frontier Town has long been considered a favorite destination by both locals and tourists. Throughout the year visitors can enjoy a variety of events including stunt shows and gunfights. A recent expansion features a new saloon, restaurant, music stages, and even a rustic wedding venue.
Sincuidados’ proximity to the Loop 101 Freeway makes Phoenix Sky Harbor airport an easy 35-minute drive, allowing residents to balance convenient travel with the peace and serenity of residing in North Scottsdale. Residents also enjoy easy access to the City of Phoenix, home to such cultural attractions as The Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, The Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Children’s Museum of Phoenix, and the Arizona Science Center, just to name a few. Nearby Phoenix is also home to several entertainment and sports venues, including Chase Field and Talking Stick Resort Arena.
Sincuidados was originally planned to have four sections, however, in the 1980s, some of the land was purchased by two local philanthropists; H.B Wallace and his wife, Jocelyn. In 1987, the Wallace’s founded the Wallace Desert Botanical Gardens and donated the land to the Mountain Preserve in the hope that others would appreciate and enjoy the trails and desert landscape they so loved. In 1993, the Wallace’s created a foundation to help support the financial needs of the gardens. After the passing of H.B and Jocelyn, it became increasingly challenging for the foundation to sustain the gardens. Due to a number of circumstances that made continuing the support of the gardens in its original location untenable, the process of relocating the garden began. The Boyce Thompson Arboretum, the largest and oldest botanical garden in Arizona, resides along Queen Creek and became the new trusted guardian of the plants that once occupied the area known as the Wallace Desert Botanical Gardens.
Sincuidados is served by the Cave Creek Unified School District and students attend Lone Mountain Elementary School, Sonoran Trails Middle School, and Cactus Shadows High School. There are also private school options for interested families.
