Preview Homes for Sale in Desert Ridge

Situated in Northeast Phoenix, the Desert Ridge m
aster-planned community comprises 5,700 acres and is anticipated to have a population of 50,000 residents upon completion.  Created through a unique public/private partnership between the State of Arizona, City of Phoenix and the Master Developer; the master plan, adopted by the City of Phoenix as the Desert Ridge Specific Plan, began development in 1991.
Residences within Desert Ridge include single family homes; gated townhomes; condominiums in the luxurious resort-style community of Toscana; urban-style lofts of City North, the Shade Apartments; , and Sagewood a Life Care Services Community.
Single family homes within the area are scattered throughout a number of gated and non-gated neighborhoods.  Many homes are available with views of the Wildfire Golf Course, and amenities vary depending upon location.  Two “communities within the community” include Aviano at Desert Ridge (see the Aviano section for more details) and Del Webb’s beautiful Fireside at Desert Ridge, offering resale homes as well as new homes directly from the builder. 
Dell Webb's Fireside Community features a variety of swimming facilities including a resort-style pool, a lap pool and a children’s splash pad.  The community center is state-of-the-art, complete with cardio and strength training equipment, free weights, kick-boxing, yoga, aerobic classes and even dances classes for those who are interested.  Outdoor amenities include two lighted tennis courts, basketball courts, a yoga garden, and multiple playgrounds and picnic ramadas.
Townhome complexes include Bella Monte and LaVerne, both of which are gated and include luxuries such as community pools, cabanas, barbeques and fitness centers.  LaVerne also has a billiards room and theatre for use by the residents in addition to a concierge.
Toscana is considered one of the finest condominium complexes in the valley. With 1500+ units, underground parking with elevators, a 24-hour guard at the gated entry, a concierge, three heated pools and spas with fire and waterfall features, and a 3.5 million dollar clubhouse and workout center; this community is a resort destination for full-time and part-time residents alike.  In the future, Toscana will also include a separate structure of senior living facilities including independent and assisted living choices.
City North, the urban core of Desert Ridge, features an interactive lifestyle with a synergistic mix of retail, restaurant, residential, office, cultural, civic and entertainment uses. Currently available for lease, loft-style condos above the retail, dining and office strip provide residents the opportunity to work, shop and dine all within a few steps of home.
Desert Ridge also contains the wonderful retirement community of Sagewood, which offers on-site healthcare services, therapy, assisted living, memory care and nursing care in private suites.  This remarkable facility is located on 85 acres and will continue adding phases over the next few years with more and more amenities, many of which will be determined through interviews and interests expressed by their residents. 
Convenient to all of the area’s various residences are Mayo Clinic’s 210-acre Phoenix campus that includes Mayo Clinic Hospital and the Mayo Clinic Specialty Building; Desert Ridge Marketplace, a 1.2 million square-foot retail dining and entertainment center; and JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, which includes Wildfire Golf Club with 36 holes of championship golf, a day spa, 252 time-share units, and a 950-room hotel- the largest in Arizona.
Home prices in Desert Ridge currently range from $179,900 for an 894 sf condo in Toscana, to $899,000 for 4,800-sf home on Wildfire golf course.  (This excludes homes in Aviano which I’ve included in their own section.)  The average sales price per sf over the last 3 months has been $181.
