Windgate Ranch real estate sits at the base of the McDowell Mountains, just north of Bell Road and east of the main DC Ranch real estate area.  The gated master planned community is one of the newer developments in North Scottsdale.  The luxury homes, built by Toll Brothers, began construction in 2005 and continues today.  Majority of the homes are semi-custom, with many that have Old-World Spanish hacienda-style architecture.  Five different home collections are offered, with both 1-story or 2-story options available.  There is a 10,000 square foot clubhouse, five activity buildings, tennis courts, 3 swimming pools/3 spas, a kids pool and a full-time activities coordinator.  

Just outside the gates of Windgate and walking distance is the Gateway Trailhead, which allows access into the Sonoran Preserve that offers over 50 miles of hiking, mountain biking and horse back riding trails.  The Silverleaf Golf Club is minutes away and offers a championship golf course designed by Tome Weiskopt.  Some of the most expensive custom home sites can be found along the Silverleaf golf course.  These luxurious estates have amazing golf views and some are perched high above the Sonoran Mountain range and provide one-of-a-kind views of the city. 

There are plenty of shopping and dining options in the Windgate Ranch area, with the shopping centers of Market Street, Canyon Village and DC Ranch Crossing.  If you’re willing to travel another 10-15 minutes, even more shopping and dining options are available at the popular Kierland Commons, Scottsdale Quarters and Desert Ridge Marketplace.  The Loop 101 Freeway is only minutes away and the Phoenix Scottsdale International Airport is only about a 25-30 minute drive.
