Nestled against the scenic mountains for which it’s named, Desert Foothills in Carefree offers a rural desert living environment like no other. A neighborhood steeped in history and traditions of the Hohokam Indians, European settlers, gold miners, ranchers and homesteaders, Desert Hills is for those who appreciate the magnificent beauty and preservation of rural areas. Due to the Government Land Office’s influence in selling parcels to homesteaders as far back as the 1930s, lots in this community begin at a generous one acre and range up to five acres in size, helping maintain the low-density setting. In fact, KT Palmer, one of the first people involved in the building of the Town of Carefree, was one of the first homesteaders in the Desert Foothills area.
For those seeking to plant their roots in this awe-inspiring region of the Valley, many unique single family homes are available featuring design influenced by Santa Fe, Pueblo and Western Ranch style. But no two homes are alike, with each residence varying in their architectural composition and embodying their own quaint style and charm. This rural area is also dotted with a collection of equestrian ranches and luxury estates that combine privacy with upscale living. While lush desert foliage still dominates the landscape, great care is taken to ensure each new construction blends seamlessly with its natural surroundings to uphold peaceful coexistence.
Despite the tranquility and rural setting of this residential neighborhood, exciting attractions and city amenities can actually be found quite close by. Just up the road from the foothills, you’ll find the towns of Cave Creek and Carefree. With stunning architecture and unique boutiques, Carefree is not wanting for style or charm. While the Town of Cave Creek with a great collection of art galleries and eclectic shopping set in the beautiful Sonoran desert offers visitors and residents alike a true Southwest experience. Located on the outskirts of Carefree is El Pedregal, an outdoor shopping area that blends sophistication with Southwestern charm.
Numerous restaurants offering everything from fine dining to cowboy cookouts can be found just west of Carefree. And when it comes to past times, residents and visitors have a variety of options to choose from including hiking, biking and horseback riding through parks and nature preserves, rodeos, country western dancing, museums, old mining tours and regular farmers markets and craft fairs.
And like any true Arizona community, excellent golf can be found at the nearby Rancho Mañana Golf Club in Cave Creek and the stunning 36-hole paradise at The Boulders.
