DC Ranch

DC Ranch

With a wealth of sumptuous homes and homesites, DC Ranch sits at the base of the majestic McDowellMountains. This 4,400 acre, north Scottsdale community enjoys breathtaking views of the high Sonoran desert and saguaro, the surrounding mountains and shimmering nighttime city lights.

Communities within DC Ranch include Silverleaf, an exclusive security-gated enclave; tree-lined streets with a classic ‘front porch on Main Street’ design; quaint cottages; urban-chic courtyard homes and stacked-flat designs that create a charming European village atmosphere.

Hidden away deep inside the desert landscape, other areas are host to ultra-sophisticated homes built on multi-million dollar real estate.

When it comes to social and recreational amenities, DC Ranch makes the scene with its two beautiful private clubs; The Country Club and The Silverleaf Club. Each club has a stunning clubhouse, first-rate tennis, swimming facilities - and a spectacularly scenic and challenging golf course.

Designed by Tom Lehman and John Fought, The Country Club course fits the bill for all levels of golfer. With its deep bunkers, subtle breaks and sensational views, the course undulates gently across the extraordinary terrain, offering a new game every time she’s played.

Nestled in crimson canyons, the community of Silverleaf features a Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course that acts as a magnet for competitive players. The par-72, 7,322 yard course is lush and lovely - and thanks to its dramatic elevation changes, it offers breathtaking views of mountains, desert, and the glitter of evening lights in the valley far below. Recreational life at Silverleaf also includes six lighted tennis courts, 2 pools, the Silverleaf Club and Spa - and a full year’s calendar of social events and activities, suitable for all age groups.

Another unique feature of DC Ranch is its commitment to the preservation of open desert space with its network of walking, hiking and biking trails, making community connections easy to establish and maintain. But that’s not all – DC Ranch is also anchored by The Market at DC Ranch, an upscale shopping district filled with one-of-a-kind boutiques, neighborhood coffee shops and picturesque shopping and dining venues.

For the history buff; the earliest recording of DC Ranch dates back to 1885, when Dr. W.B. "Doc" Crosby registered the DC cattle brand. In 1901, Wisconsin businessman E.O. Brown purchased the DC brand and claimed the land, which by then had grown into a 43,000 acre cattle ranch. The ranch’s last cattle drive to the stockyards and bustling railroad yards in Phoenix, took place in the late 1950s. Nearly four decades later, an affiliate of DMB Associates, Inc. partnered with the landowners to create the magnificent golfing community that it is today.
