Desert Mountain is located in the high Sonoran Desert, bordering Tonto National Forest Carefree and N Cave Creek Rd. The area is mainly a private golf community that offers a quieter and rural lifestyle with beautiful mountain and desert views. The temperature is slightly cooler because elevation ranges between 2,500 to 4,800 feet.
There are six Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses that comprise the luxurious 8,000-acre golf community of Desert Mountain. Within the guard gated community is a full service spa, fitness center and six clubhouses that have nine tennis courts. Many of the homes line one of the six golf courses and overlook the well maintained greenery. There is a wide range of housing options ranging from small attached two bedroom “lock and leave” cottages, detached single family homes, condominiums, semi-custom homes and large luxurious custom estates that sit on the mountainside.
There are plenty of trails for hiking, biking and riding horses that are provided by the surrounding mountains. Residents can enjoy the many quaint stores, restaurants and art galleries at the nearby towns of Carefree and Cave Creek. Carefree Hwy is minutes away and the community is not too far from the many retail stores and restaurants offered at Desert Ridge Marketplace and CityNorth. The area is served by the Cave Creek Unified School District.
