Desert Mountain Private Villages
Desert Mountain located in North Scottsdale, is a master-planned community on the border of Carefree and the Tonto National Forest that opened its doors in 1986. Famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright's company, Taliesin Associated Architects, designed the community. Wright felt architecture ought to have a symbiotic relationship with the environment, therefore each community within Desert Mountain is in harmony with the surrounding desert.
The Desert Mountain community has 35 "secluded villages" spread around the 8,000 acre development. Desert Mountain properties accommodate practically any standard of living one can think of due to the community offering multiple sized homes ranging from villas, cottages, and town homes to opulent estates on custom home sites.
Homes range from comfortable 2-3 bedroom attached casitas (ideal for vacation homeowners), to large luxurious custom estate homes adorned on the side of the mountain. The design of homes varies too as you will find styles from Tuscan to extreme contemporary.
