Waterfront living in the desert with some great views


Live on the water or with water views!  While everyone knows that Greater Phoenix is in a desert, our developers realized that water is an important visual and recreational amenity that adds value to the community.  They have been building communities with lakes and Tempe even added dams to create a lake (Tempe Town Lake) out of the usually dry Salt River bed.  Some of the lakes allow boating, and some allow fishing (most are catch and release).  Tempe Town Lake has a marina, and high rise living options on shore.  Some of the water communities (not including the Active Adult):

  • Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale
  • McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale
  • Scottsdale Ranch in Scottsdale
  • Tempe Town Lake in Tempe
  • Estrella Mountain Ranch in Goodyear
  • Ocotillo Lakes in Chandler
  • The Islands in Gilbert
  • Dobson Ranch in Mesa
  • Palm Valley in Goodyear
  • Arizona Biltmore Estates in Phoenix
  • Crystal Gardens in Avondale
