Silverleaf | Scottsdale

Founded in 2002, Silverleaf quickly became one of the Valley’s most desirable addresses thanks to an amenity-packed 50,000‐sq.-ft. clubhouse with an adjoining Tom Weiskopf-designedgolf course and a community that thrives on privacy, tranquility and exceptionally beautiful homes. silverleaf.com.

What’s New: Cullum Homes recently debuted the final neighborhood in Silverleaf, The Village at Silverleaf. (Only a few homes remain in this community of 19 distinctive homes.) Neighboring the Silverleaf Clubhouse, the 12 semi-custom Villas and seven Cottages, designed by Oz Architects, range in size from 2,735 to more than 6,000 square feet and are rich in character and unique finishes. The homes utilize a concretewall system that exceeds Scottsdale’s green building standards while the superior zoned air-conditioning is significantly more energy efficient and quieter than traditional units. The authentic architecture and meticulous craftsmanship of The Village at Silverleaf come forth via decorative ironwork and stone, reclaimed wood or steel and glass front-entry doors, antique imported beams and wire-brushed, painted cedar shutters. To cap off the luxury living experience at The Village, residents savor expansive vistas of city lights, the Silverleaf Golf Course and the peaks of the McDowell Mountains. Cottages from $2.4 million; villas from $3.4 million. Exclusively offered by Silverleaf Realty, 602.502.6902.
