Reason to Live Here: Country Club Comforts

Perched within the majestic foothills of the McDowell Mountains, this North Scottsdale enclave features its final 35 custom homesites. Part of the award-winning DC Ranch community, Silverleaf encompasses 736 homes and homesites across 2,000 acres. (Custom homesites are priced from $300,000 to $5 million.) The biggest build: a 70,000-sq.-ft. rural Mediterranean-style estate designed by Peterson Architecture and Associates. Together, all three Silverleaf neighborhoods reflect the beauty of Spanish, Mediterranean and Western architectural influences. Residents of the country club can relish in its many amenities which include teeing off at a Tom Weiskopf signature golf course, relaxing in a 50,000-sq.-ft. clubhouse and spa or taking a peaceful moment to admire the city lights below. Its location to high-end boutiques, fine
dining restaurants and art exhibits also make venturing out easy and exciting. 480.502.6902, www.silverleaf.com. —Christine Whitton
