This small, affluent community is surrounded by picturesque Arizona mountains and hosts some of the finest living and golfing in all of Maricopa County!
Because of its small physical size and surrounding mountains, the community is naturally protected from overpopulation and spread – which is how the locals like it! It also means that it’s hard to find available properties, giving this community a very exclusive and private feel. However, the population does tend to grow a bit during the winter months. Various politicians, professional athletes, and celebrities use Paradise Valley as a 2nd home to escape the harsher winters in other states.
Community leaders are also careful to restrict development to ensure that current residents can enjoy the outdoor spaces and peace and quiet that make Paradise Valley such a perfect place to call home.
There are only a handful of restaurants and shopping centers that contribute to the tranquility of this community. You will, however, find a wide variety of golf courses, spas, and resorts to help you rest and relax. The Paradise Valley Country Club is a focal point and there are several private clubs, as well.
To make up for the carefully chosen, limited business development, Scottsdale and Phoenix are both a quick drive away where you can find all the shopping, dining, and entertainment you need before heading back home to the luxury and seclusion of Paradise Valley.
The homes in Paradise Valley mostly sit on spacious lots with at least a few acres and it’s not uncommon for your closest neighbor to be down the road or up the hill. The architecture ranges from modern Arizona-style adobes to sprawling mansions, to Frank Lloyd Wright inspired estates. Nearly every home comes with a view of the surrounding mountains and you can find various properties speckled along the hills with spectacular views of the valley below.
Most year-round residents take at least some small part in governing this small, private community. The police, firefighters, and planning commissioners are often volunteers’ and residents take an active role on the town board. More than half the schools are private, and the nearby public schools are top-notch and highly rated with smaller classrooms than most.
If you’re looking for a Scottsdale community that’s private and exclusive, but welcoming and charming, Paradise Valley may truly be your paradise! Call us today to see what’s available.
