Highlighting Desert Ridge - Overview

Located in Northeast Phoenix from about 36th St. to 56th St., north of Loop101, south of Pinnacle Peak, the Desert Ridge community consists of approximately 3,800 single family detached homes built by a variety of builders (Click Here to view a map of the area).  The list of builders include Shea Homes, Continental Homes, Elliott Homes, Toll Brothers, Morrison Homes, Richmond American, Del Webb, Trend Homes, Engle Homes and UDC among others.  As of right now (September, 2007) the homes are valued within a range of just under $300,000 to over $1,000,000.  This provides those who wish to call the Desert Ridge area home a very good selection of home sizes, styles, and lot locations to choose from.  Also included in this area are a couple of different subdivisions including Aviano, Stonecrest, Sierra Pass and Wildcat Ridge.  I am including these in the overall numbers, but will be highlighting these subdivisions in detail in later posts.

Desert Ridge Area

Also included in the Desert Ridge area are several condominium developments.  These include La Verne, Belle Monte, The Villages at Aviano, Toscana at Desert Ridge, and Fireside at Desert Ridge.  I will be highlighting these communities as well in later posts.

Located at about 52nd St. & Deer Valley is the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa.  I've spent a weekend here with my wife and have golfed at both golf courses and enjoyed every minute of our stay.  I jump at every chance I get to golf at either one of the golf courses.  They are challenging and fun at the same time.  I will be spending some more time highlighting the resort and the golf course in a later post.

And probably the most popular amenity in the area is the Desert Ridge Marketplace.  The home to 75 stores and 31 restaurants located on approximately 110 acres of land it is one of the premier shopping destinations in the Northeast valley.

Over the next few months I will be highlighting many of the amenities of the Desert Ridge area in follow-up posts.  Please stay tuned.
