Paradise Valley Farms subdivision is one of the most desirable areas in all of Scottsdale. Buffeted by the well-known planned community meccas of McCormick Ranch and Gainey Ranch, as well as the actual Town of Paradise Valley which sits directly across Scottsdale Road, Paradise Valley Farms is a small niche of acre parcels with grandfathered horse privileges. Despite the rampant redevelopment that has seen massive new Tuscan style homes replace many of the older ranch style properties, horse set-ups and equestrian trails are still abundant in this community that sits just South of where the actual working Gainey Ranch once stood (North of Eastwood, where the Shops at Gainey Village and the Gainey Village subdivision now sit).

While luxury home buyers primarily think in terms of Paradise Valley, DC Ranch, Silverleaf, Ancala and other prestigious name communities, few neighborhoods can enjoy the charm of Paradise Valley Farms. Boasting gorgeous tree-lined streets (rare outside of the Arcadia and central corridor areas) and a pleasing mix of architectural styles amongst the custom homes, a taste of a bygone era blends seamlessly with modern convenience and styling. The location is simply perfect. Central to everything: shopping, schools, lakes, golf, resorts, etc.

Tucked away from the major streets, Paradise Valley Farms is the end destination to which Scottsdale home buyers aspire. A home in Paradise Valley Farms signifies your arrival, just without all of the guard-gated country club pretentiousness that some associate with high end Scottsdale housing. If you find yourself a walker and a waiver, a home in Paradise Valley Farms would be exactly what you would be looking for. Neighbors don’t hide in their houses or retreat to their backyards.

And to complete the full taste of this unique place, find below the subdivision statistics and averages for your reference:

• Amongst the 56 homes in Paradise Valley Farms, the construction dates range from 1968 to 2007.
• The average home size is approximately 4125 square feet; the smallest being 2373 square feet, and the largest being 7374 square feet.

Framed for approximately 14,000 livable square feet (no, that is not a typo!), the project was abandoned by the previous owner. It is currently on the market and awaiting an intrepid soul to finish Scottsdale’s version of the Taj Mahal.
