DC Ranch is a premier residential community that is located in the Sonoran Desert in Scottsdale, Arizona. Plans for it got underway in the 1980s when land developers networked together to create this community. The group sold more than 4000 acres to the city of Scottsdale for residential development.
Since then, it has flourished into one of the most thriving master-planned communities in Scottsdale. Houses here are designed to enhance and highlight the natural desert landscape. Carl Chapman REALTOR from West USA Realty can show you the numerous home styles that are found in DC Ranch and assist you in finding one that suits your needs today.
