Scottsdale Luxury Real Estate (480) 888-5355 Office (480) 585-7070
Located a short drive north of the Scottsdale, Arizona, the sibling towns of Carefree and Cave Creek are just what the proverbial doctor ordered when you’re looking to get away from the urban and suburban hustle and bustle. Surrounded by lush desert and soaring granite boulders, these two towns enjoy a wealth of differences, but also share a common history as well as the magical splendors of midnight-black night skies, magnificent mountain vistas and stands of towering saguaros that clamber across the rugged landscape.
Whether you prefer gazing at a mountain or living on one --  or even living on a golf green or airport runway --  there’s a home for you in the Town of Carefree, Arizona. 

You’ll find luxury homes on ample acres of scenic real estate with magnificent Sonoran Desert backdrops in both gated and open subdivisions, where inviting expanses of open space offer abundant opportunities to watch the native wildlife—such as deer, coyotes, javelina, Gambel’s quail and hummingbirds—and unsurpassed sunrises and sunsets.

It’s not unusual for homes in Carefree to have been designed by renowned architects and to incorporate custom details such as high ceilings, view windows, private swimming pools and casita's (guest houses)…and of course, open-air patios for enjoying year-round outdoor living. In addition, some homes have tennis courts and putting greens for those who prefer their sports really close to home.

Two gated communities—The Boulders (a residential community within The Boulders Resort) and the Village at Carefree Resort and Conference Center (a condominium residential and vacation community adjacent to the resort)—are highly desirable because both offer their residents resort amenities such as golf, swimming, tennis and spas.

The gated communities of Black Mountain Foothills, Velvet Shadows, Grandview Estates and Hawknest feature luxury custom lots and estates in exquisite Desert Foothills settings that deliver unparalleled views. Many are interspersed between the ancient massive granite boulders that inspired the name of The Boulders Resort and community. Luxury homes also grace non-gated subdivisions like Carefree Highlands, Ocotillo Ridge Estates and Cow Track Estates.

Carefrees two golf communities are The Boulders and Desert Forest. Both offer beautiful golf homes within walking distance to award-winning golf courses. Some homes are built right along the greens, and with street names like Double Eagle Drive and Short Putt, living near Desert Forest keeps golf foremost in your mind.

You can truly ‘fly away home’ when you purchase a home and hangar at SkyRanch at Carefree Airport. This gated community is located near Desert Forest Golf Course, and some homes border both the runway and golf green.

Carefree and its neighboring Town of Cave Creek offer a wide variety of both fine and casual shops and restaurants, social events and musical entertainment. But if you need a dose of city life, Scottsdale and Phoenix are just a hop and a skip away.

No matter where you live in Carefree, you can count on a laidback lifestyle in a town that values privacy, tranquility and preserving the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert Foothills.
