Paradise Valley is a truly beautiful town filled with unique and stunning homes quietly nestled between Phoenix and Scottsdale. This affluent enclave is known for its posh resorts and luxurious homes. The town was incorporated in 1961 and “paradise” was the only word early residents felt appropriate for describing Paradise Valley, this oasis in the middle of the Sonoran Desert.
The town is a close knit community whose vision is to enhance the unique character of the area for its residents, whether they own primary or secondary homes. It’s a small residential community of only 16 square miles and approximately 5,500 homes. Land use policies are strictly enforced in order to maintain the integrity of the community. People appreciate Paradise Valley for its quiet atmosphere and the clear skies and open spaces allow for unobstructed views of Mummy Mountain, Camelback Mountain, Phoenix Mountain Preserve, and the Indian Bend Wash.
Within the town limits are many public and private schools that offer premier education to students in kindergarten through grade 12.
The resort community in Paradise Valley has played an integral role in making the community the world class destination it is today. Many five-star properties call this town home, including the majestic Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain, formerly John Gardiner’s Tennis Ranch, the swank Intercontinental Montelucia and the JW Marriott Camelback Inn. The resorts offer residents many amenities, such as luxurious spas, golf and tennis, as well as some of the finest award-winning dining in the area.
Community involvement is high as many of the towns citizens take pride in being involved in helping to maintain the high standard of living associated with Paradise Valley. The goal is to maintain the original community values of limited government, low density and open space in a residential setting. Since its incorporation the town’s primary focus has been preserving the residential character of the community. Although there are nine world-class resorts within the neighborhood, zoning restrictions and low speed limits ensure that the peaceful tranquility is never disturbed. Town laws like the one that requires all utility lines to be placed underground guarantee that the idyllic views will not be disrupted.
