One of the unique characteristics of Scottsdale’s master planned communities is evident where the concept of resort living has been elevated to an art form. Most of Scottsdale’s resort properties revolve around a central private or semi-private golf course and offer hotel-style amenities in their clubhouses and community facilities. However, for those seeking a true resort living experience, there are a few communities that stand out above the rest.
The Boulders, Scottsdale’s foremost resort community and the home of The Boulders Golf and Country Club and The Boulders Resort and Spa, is a sprawling tract of pristine Sonora Desert land encompassing more than 1,300 acres. The resort was ranked as the number seven golf resort in the nation by Travel and Leisure Golf in 2006, as well as the number one golf resort in the southwest in 2005 and 2006. There are several diverse Scottsdale resort properties for sale within The Boulders community. Here, buyers will find breathtaking luxury homes, tucked away in private areas and offering spectacular views of the city lights and the McDowell Mountains, as well as premier patio homes. Homes are designed in Spanish or Santa Fe style, to complement the untouched beauty of their surroundings. Owners of these exclusive properties enjoy access to the acclaimed services and amenities of The Boulders Resort and Spa, as well as access to The Boulders Golf and Country Club’s award-winning course and facilities.
Other Scottsdale resort properties that deserve to be explored include those at Eagle Mountain Golf and Country Club, FireRock Country Club, and Mirabel. The homes in these upscale, gated communities are nothing short of stunning, and have been designed in styles ranging from Tuscan to Santa Fe to Contemporary, with every detail in perfect alignment. Additionally, owners of Scottsdale resort properties in these and other golf course communities enjoy full access to all the amenities of their attendant country clubs, and have the opportunity to enjoy a true resort lifestyle only minutes from central Scottsdale and metro Phoenix.
