Buying a home in Cave Creek Arizona is something you
should be excited about. After all, Cave Creek real estate ranks
amongst the most scenic property in all of Arizona.
Cave Creek has been around for a while. First settled in the 1870’s, Cave Creek did not incorporate as a township until over 100 years later! There is an independent spirit to the area – if an Old-West town came to modern times, it would appear a lot like this town.
Cave Creek is a town filled with rugged Southwest-Style architecture, sports several horse ranches, and is well-known for its wide open space. State of the art homes blend perfectly with the beautiful desert environment, and range from smaller homes in the 2000 sq. ft. range to exclusive custom homes on large multi-acre parcels.
Despite this Old-West, pioneer feel, homes are convenient to everything.
Residing in the Upper Sonoran Desert, Cave Creek is near the town of Carefree and the city of Scottsdale. Downtown Phoenix is approximately a 50-minute drive by car.
This gives you the best of both worlds – close proximity to a major metropolitan area, yet with the serenity of a smaller, quieter town. And, of course, the desert is not far either.
Cave Creek Arizona is everything you could want in a Southwestern town: Modern conveniences that don’t detract from the rugged outdoors. Old-time restaurants and taverns blend in with modern day eateries and shopping.
It has also just completed the newest addition to its park system - the 2,100-acre Spur Cross Ranch, boasting archaeological delights, colorful landscapes, and picturesque flora.
Scottsdale and Carefree, with their abundant supply of championship-caliber golf courses, are also minutes away. You can exit your front door and tee it up in no time!
Cave Creek averages less than 14 inches of rain a year (less than many places get in a few storms!) This means you get sunshine, and plenty of it! How about an average of over 325 sunny days a year? It is also elevated, making it (on average) 10-15 degrees cooler than Phoenix.
You’ll feel revitalized as Arizona’s sunshine and famous “dry heat” banishes allergies and those pesky “winter doldrums”. And when you’re ready to wind down, gorgeous sunsets give way to crisp desert nights. Sleep well.
