Windgate Ranch is a luxury master planned community at the base of the McDowell Mountains. This gated community is one of the newer developments in North Scottsdale, which began construction in 2005 and continues today. The homes are built by Toll Brothers and have an Old-World Spanish hacienda-style architecture. All the homes are semi-custom and available with a 1-story or 2-story option. There are five different collections offered, allowing you to personalize your home:
Cassia Collection: up to 4,196 square feet
Cottonwood Collection: up to 4,600 square feet
Desert Willow Collection: up to 4,300 square feet
Mesquite Collection: up to 6,300 square feet
Windgate Ranch offers amazing resort-style amenities with their 10,000 square foot clubhouse, five activity buildings, tennis courts, 3 swimming pools/3 spas, kids pool and a full-time activities coordinator. Outside of the gates is the Gateway Trailhead, which allows access into the Sonoran Preserve that offers over 50 miles of hiking, mountain biking and horse back riding trails. Many top-rated golf courses are nearby, like DC Ranch Country Club, Silverleaf Golf Club and McDowell Mountain Golf Club, just to name a few. Market Street, Canyon Village and DC Ranch Crossing are three shopping complexes near the Windgate Ranch real estate, and they offer upscale retail stores and restaurants.
Windgate Ranch is close to the Loop 101 Freeway, which allows easy access to surrounding communities and the amenities they offer. Old Town Scottsdale, Kierland Commons, Scottsdale Quarters, Fashion Square Mall and the Talking Stick Resort are just some of the places you can go that are between 15-30min away. The Phoenix Scottsdale International Airport is only 25 minutes away and the Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital is only 15 minutes away.
The community is within the Scottsdale Unified School District, with children attending Copper Ridge for kindergarten through 8th grade and Chaparral for high school. Notre Dame Preparatory High School is a private high school option, and is just across the street from the Windgate Ranch community.
