Nestled near Camelback Mountain, surrounded by golf courses, lakes and multi-use paths, McCormick Ranch was the first truly master planned community beginning in the 1970s, showing Scottsdale leadership in thoughtful and meaningful growth leading to a better quality of life and enjoyment for citizens. McCormick Ranch is in the heart of Scottsdale, close to Fashion Square Mall, Scottsdale resort hotels, marvelous dining, golf, hiking, lakes, parks and excellent education.

McCormick Ranch was started as an active ranch in 1942 by Merle Chaney and sold to the McCormick's in the mid-40's. It was the last large ranch located in the City of Scottsdale.

The transformation of the McCormick's Ranch was based on a master plan developed by Gruen Associates of Los Angeles and Scottsdale Environmental Planners and Consultants. Development began with infrastructure and amenities. The amenities had a dual purpose by providing aesthetics, which included two championship 18-hole golf courses, more than 25 miles of bicycle paths, public tennis courts, 130 acres of man-made lakes, two of which can be used for sailing and several that are stocked with fish.

When Kaiser-Aetna purchased the Ranch, it was the country's largest single piece of property sold for a planned community within city limits. Today McCormick Ranch contains 3,116 total acres. Kaiser-Aetna sold the remaining undeveloped acreage to Transcontinental Properties in 1980. Transcontinental then sold 1,120 acres to Markland Properties.

Yes, please do Catherine, a lot of history there dating back to the cattle and horse ranch day and eventually becoming the first multi builder planned community in the United States.

That is a nice area. I have a client that is near the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain. He is enlarging his old windows and cutting back the overhangs to get a better view of those mountains.
