DC Ranch

Welcome to DC Ranch

Urban, upscale, and community-driven, DC Ranch is a prime location for those who like some action alongside their luxury

More than any other community in northern Scottsdale, DC Ranch can indeed be all things to all people. There's shopping and dining. There's an energetic country club lifestyle with active golf and social scenes, and activities for young and old alike. There's an abundance of outdoor pursuits. Finally, there are the residences—homes to fit every stage of life, family size, want, or need.

Comprising four villages—Country Club, Desert Camp, Desert Peaks, Silverleaf—spread across 4,400 magnificent acres, DC Ranch celebrates luxury and the many forms it takes. 

The Country Club's aesthetic emulates Arizona's southwestern heritage and Spanish roots. It's also where the 18-hole Tom Lehman designed County Club golf course at DC Ranch is located. Desert Camp neighborhoods weave together and create the spirit of a small village, with housing that includes condominiums, townhomes, and single-family homes. 

Desert Park is a spotlight for architectural flair. Home trends include Southwestern-style ranch houses, Craftsman bungalows, and custom abodes with splashes of Spanish influence. As for Silverleaf, few superlatives can do this ultra-exclusive enclave justice, except to say that the custom homes surrounding Silverleaf Golf Course are stunning architectural marvels.
