Located between 24th and 32nd street, just north of Camelback Road, you’ll find Phoenix’s upscale Biltmore neighborhood.
Plush green grass generously dotted with mature shade trees and fragrant citrus and rose gardens. Considered one of the city’s most coveted residential neighborhoods, formed with a rich and elegant history, the Biltmore neighborhood boasts stunning architecture, pristine homes, and spectacular mountain views all shoulder to shoulder with a bustling shopping center, burgeoning financial district, and two perfectly manicured, 18-hole championship golf courses. Biltmore homes for sale blend the community’s history with modern amenities, lush landscaping and just the right amount of seclusion and exclusivity.
The Biltmore neighborhood is centered on the historic Arizona Biltmore, a Waldorf Astoria Resort. A jewel of the desert since 1929, this 5-star luxury resort built by Albert Chase McArthur, with mentor and famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright as counsel; and currently maintaining the iconic art deco style of the era. Throughout its history, the resort has been frequented by celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and Demi Moore, presidents Herbert Hoover through George W. Bush, and untold dignitaries since its opening.
The Biltmore is known for a striking diversity in architecture and style from one home to the next. Tudor-style homes with grand entrances, European grandeur with elegant gardens, and modern masterpieces with clean, architectural lines all exuding an air of luxury and quality.
Prefer something a bit cozier, Two Biltmore Estates, a private luxury townhome community consisting of just 38 residences may be your cup of tea. Four-floor plans starting at 3,500 square feet and sprawling to a comfortable 4,800 square feet feature amenities such as fireplaces, his and her master baths, golf course views, and guest suites.

The Arizona Biltmore Golf Club serves as a bridge between resort and neighborhood residential real estate with many homes nestled between The Links and The Adobe courses. These prestigious fairways are backed on the north by the Phoenix Mountain Preserve and Piestewa Peak, providing a picture-perfect mountain vista. Arizona residents and club members enjoy special pricing and tee times.
On the south lies Biltmore Fashion Park housing high-end boutiques and department stores to local storefronts and restaurants.

Although secluded and tucked away from the hubbub, the Biltmore is centrally located and arguably one of the best starting points in the city. The neighborhood is, for the most part, walkable or bikeable with many local biking and hiking paths. It takes about 5 to 10-minutes to navigate the neighborhood and a bit longer, 20 minutes or so, to reach downtown Phoenix, Old Town Scottsdale, Mill Avenue in Tempe, Midtown, Arcadia, and Camelback Mountain. Only seven miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the community is easily accessible with nearby freeway access.
The public-school system is the Phoenix Unified School District with top elementary and magnet schools. Basis Schools (5th to 12th grade), Phoenix Country Day and All Saints’ Episcopal Day School (pre-K to 8th grade), Xavier College Preparatory (All-girl Catholic high school), Brophy College Preparatory Academy (All-boy Jesuit high school) are a few of the neighboring private and charter academic options.
