As one of the most affluent towns in Arizona, and one of the most prestigious zip codes in the country, Paradise Valley is known for breathtaking mountain, city and desert views and impressive estates. The surrounding Camelback, Mummy and Phoenix Mountains make the town feel slightly secluded from the hustle and bustle of next door Phoenix and Scottsdale, yet all the necessary amenities are just a short drive away from Paradise Valley luxury homes for sale.
Purposeful Serenity with World-Class Luxury Amenities
One of the most unique attributes of Paradise Valley is that it is made up almost entirely of residential neighborhoods. The only major commercial businesses are luxury resorts and golf courses. Keeping the community quiet with minimal street lighting is of utmost importance to residents and really allows for the town’s acclaimed open spaces, dark evening skies and unobstructed mountain views.
The JW Marriott Camelback Inn, Sanctuary Camelback Mountain, Hermosa Inn and Montelucia are the town’s flagship luxury resorts with world-class spas and pools. Paradise Valley Country Club offers 180 acres of golf, tennis and swimming facilities to members with both casual and formal dining in the clubhouse. The golf course was designed by Lawrence Hughs in 1953 and has hosted state championship events, with PGA tour pro Tom Purtzer among the players and champions. The course is always immaculate and the surrounding desert and mountains picturesque. Camelback Golf Club and Mountain Shadows Golf Club are just outside Paradise Valley but within miles.
As some of the founding Paradise Valley establishments, El Chorro and Lon’s at the Hermosa offer fine dining in a casual yet upscale environment, right in the heart of Paradise Valley. In fact, these restaurants have such a following that people travel across the Phoenix Metro area just to take in the magnificent views while dining on some of the best patios in the area.
Miles from Ordinary Yet Close to the Action
While residents often need to venture out of Paradise Valley for more dining options, shopping and services, they don’t need to go far for the best in the area. Scottsdale Fashion Square, Biltmore Fashion Park, the Esplanade, Arcadia, Old Town Scottsdale and the Borgata are all just minutes away. For jet setters, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and the Scottsdale Airpark are both about 20 minutes away.
Lay of the Land
Due to the vast majority of custom Paradise Valley homes on at least one acre, it’s easy to find just about any architectural style, making Paradise Valley luxury homes for sale one-of-a-kind. Sprawling estates on several acres are not uncommon, and there are still hillside lots available to build a unique dream home. Many of the subdivisions in the town are gated with 24-hour security, adding to the home values.
Within Paradise Valley real estate, most architectural styles are designed to complement the surrounding mountains and natural landscape. Mediterranean, Spanish Colonial, pueblo and modern are all easy to find. Factors such as lot size, home size, hillside placement, views and recent renovations affect the home values. Homes in Paradise Valley average between $1 million and $3 million, although sales have been over $10 million.
Due to its small community size, Paradise Valley does not have its own public school system. Students are serviced by top-ranking Scottsdale Unified School District, or a number of private and charter schools are also available. Phoenix Country Day is a well-known, high-achieving private school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade that is located within Paradise Valley.
