Sonoran Mountain Ranch is a micro-suburb of Peoria, but it feels like its own little community. It’s situated right next to the Peoria Regional Preserve, making this a fan favorite for outdoor enthusiasts and active families.
The Preserve is situated on 18,000 acres of the Sonoran Desert and features some of the states most popular multi-use trails – over 30 miles of them, to be exact! Many of the pathways begin right in the Sonoran Mountain Ranch community. The trails range from easy to extremely difficult, which means there’s a trail for every skill level and age.
The neighborhoods, themselves, are connected by several miles of walkways that lead to numerous parks, playgrounds, and grassy recreational areas. Ramadas, BBQ pits, basketball courts, soccer fields, and tot lots are scattered throughout the community, offering ample opportunities for happy residents to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Most of the area’s homes are barely over 10-years-old and were built by a combination of several different builders. There is a wide variety of floor plans to choose from, most of the modern with open floor plans. The areas more affluent residents own multi-million-dollar homes in the foothills. Some of the largest homes have 5+ bedrooms and several acres of land. First-time homebuyers will feel right at home here, too, with moderately priced single-family homes in the upper $100,000’s. Homes of all sizes in Sonoran Mountain Ranch feature unfinished basements, just waiting to be turned into man-caves, family rooms, or home offices, and it’s not uncommon to find a pool in the backyard.
Two major shopping centers cater to the residents here. The NorTerra Shopping Center is a great place for casual dining, a Friday-night movie, or a quick run to the drug store. And you can find all your favorites at Lake Pleasant, where Target, Kohl’s, and PetsMart hold down the fort for a plethora of other amenities to fit all your daily needs.
It may not be big, but it packs a good punch! Sonoran Mountain Ranch is a great place to live for the family who’s looking for quiet, safety, and accessibility. Call today to find out more!
