Plans for the construction of nearly three dozen so-called “golf estates,” have been announced in Scottsdale.
Desert Mountain was launched in 1987 and is thought to be one of the most exclusive golf communities in the country, with seven Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, and luxurious homes that sell anywhere from $1 million to upwards of $5 million.
Located more than 30 miles north of downtown Scottsdale, Desert Mountain also includes restaurants, a tennis complex, and hiking and biking trails.
Now, work is expected to begin later this summer on the construction of up to 190 new homes on a portion of the estate that is being called the Village at Seven Desert Mountain.
The name refers to the fact that the homes will be built at the seventh golf course built in the community.
Plans call for the construction of homes ranging in size from 2,200 square feet to 6,500 square feet. The new development will also include a clubhouse featuring bocce ball courts and an indoor-outdoor gastropub.
If all goes according to plans, the first new homes at the exclusive community will be open by the spring of 2019.
