Homes for Sale in Desert Ridge
About Desert Ridge in North Phoenix, Arizona
Welcome to Desert Ridge, one of Arizona’s largest master-planned communities. The community is made up of 5,700 acres located in Northeastern Arizona. The very first home here was sold in 1996 and continues to expand to this day. The newest addition to the area is High Street. This is a very exciting add on to the area, giving residents a whole new row of dining, shopping, and entertainment.
If the woes of home ownership like yard work and home maintenance don’t sound appealing, don’t worry! Desert Ridge features numerous condominium communities. The Lux has a 12,767 square-foot clubhouse, and three pools, just to name one example.
What does Desert Ridge have to offer? A little bit of everything! In this community you’ll find shopping, parks, a sports complex, and entertainment galore. Catch a workout at Mountainside Fitness then swing by the Albertson’s to get all your meal prep shopping done on the way home. Date night activities are never too far from home either. Grab dinner at Pita Jungle or at one of many food options, then head over to House of Comedy for a stand up comedy show. Finally, finish it off at The Stir, which actually has a speakeasy bar hidden inside.
If a late night out exploring the different bars & restaurants on High Street isn’t your thing then there is a farmers market full of vendors every Sunday morning or a delicious brunch at Flower Child.
Desert Ridge is a wonderful place to call home, but just like everything else in this world, there is some downsides. Having so many attractions nearby in one area does create traffic congestion. It’s not abnormal during “off hours” but during rush hour the area can feel crowded. With so much shopping/retail in one space the parking lots for the stores can sometimes be pretty packed.
In conclusion, if you are looking for your next home to be right in the heart of things to do and have great freeway access to get where you need to go, then Desert Ridge is an excellent option for you.
