Equestrians will find plenty of real estate from which to choose. Horse ranches abound near Cactus and Sweetwater Roads and off Shea Boulevard en route to Fountain Hills. Mescal Park and Stonegate Equestrian Park offer arenas, round pens, and facilities to train and exercise your horses when they tire of meandering on your own property.
Located at the north of this neighborhood is the Scottsdale Airpark, an economic driver for the area. This executive airport welcomes private and chartered planes to its quiet runways and has become a hub for industrial, commercial, and retail businesses. Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter provide luxury shopping, and the small strips surrounding the airpark are home to real estate developers and brokers, agents, attorneys, CPAs, boutique establishments, and posh eateries.
Golfers will be in their element in the Arizona real estate area. From neighborhood links to world-glass 18 holes, no matter the handicap, you’ll enjoy plenty of time on the greens. But if golf isn’t your style, no matter: entertainment abounds. McCormick Stillman Railroad Park features 30 acres of trains (from model to full size, including a one-mile ride), a carousel, and regular activities such as winter lights and summer concerts. Scottsdale Ranch Park sits on 42 acres and offers lighted courts for tennis, baseball, soccer, football, and basketball, as well as miles of paved pathways perfect for bikers, joggers, walkers, and skaters. And if you love design, be sure to visit Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and studio. Or take a walk along the canal to visit the Cattletrack artist colony, a 13-acre collection of historic homes and artist studios built in the 1930s.
