In Scottsdale, Arizona the term of “Ranch” for real estate developments seems to be overused, but there was actually a time when most of the land in the area were owned by real ranches, where the land was known for its ‘anti-desert’ landscaping with lush, green lawns and grounds.
Today, Gainey Ranch is no exception as you think that you are in another location besides the desert as you travel through. This community was developed in the 80′s and is a prime example of what some good watering strategies can do in the middle of the desert.
Gainey Ranch is a gated community in the Scottsdale area, located between Scottsdale and Hayden Roads, bordered on the north by East Mountain View Road. Most of the homes, townhomes, and condos were built between the years of 1985 and 1995.
Next to the gated community stands the Hyatt Gainey Ranch. This is a sought after hotel that has a wonderful water park and lobby, and is in demand all year around, but especially during the summer when the rates are reduced. The Shops at Gainey Ranch are also nearby with upscale shops and restaurants.
Gainey Ranch is an extremely attractive community with all of its entrances gated and guarded 24 hours per day. Living accommodations range from condos, patio homes, town homes, and larger homes. the Amenities of the area include the private, 27 hole Gainey Ranch Golf Club, the Estate Club, several tennis courts that are lighted, a fitness club, a lap pool and a tennis pro shop.
Winding around the community is the Gainey Ranch Golf course, which is divided into three distinct 9 hole courses, The Arroyo, The Lakes, and The Dunes.
The Pavilliions is a gated community that is situated in the Gainey Ranch area, featuring condos with views of the golf course and the lagoon. Condos come in both single and double levels and are popular for rental for golfers.
Offering the best of what Gainey Ranch real estate has to offer, Sunset Cove displays its lush landscaping, with some of the units bordering the golf course and its spectacular views. This gated and secure community offers a pool, a spa and fitness center, and great access to all the local shopping and dining facilities. Every condo has a garage.
