Paradise Valley

Roughly bounded by Chaparral north to Shea, between 32nd Street and Scottsdale Road.

Paradise Valley is a small, affluent town known primarily for its mountains, many resorts and expensive real estate. Paradise Valley is the wealthiest suburb of Phoenix.

Paradise Valley got its start as cattle grazing land which then developed into agricultural lots, giving rise to its current large, one- to five-acre lots. As neighboring Phoenix and Scottsdale began to grow and annex outlying areas, residents of 15 square miles were granted incorporated for the Town of Paradise Valley.

Known as a “jewel in the valley,” sprawling homes on large lots are a staple of Paradise Valley. Thanks to a special use permit in the area, housing density cannot exceed one unit per acre, so residents don’t have to worry about other homeowners crowding their views.

Real Estate

Most of the homes in Paradise Valley proper can be considered luxury homes. The subdivisions of Pennington Estates and Sanctuary both feature larger custom homes, many with beautiful views of nearby Camelback Mountain. The subdivision of Lincoln Ridge features six single-family homes on a cul-de-sac on East Claremont Street. Arroyo Heights is another smaller neighborhood, with roads that are small and narrow thanks to minimal traffic. Most of the homes in Arroyo Heights have at least one acre of land, creating more separation between the houses.

Homes in Paradise Valley (North) vary from one-acre parcels to luxury condominium complexes. Singletree Ranch features custom homes built in the early 1990s, in a gated community overlooking the Ambiente Golf Course. Sandringham is home to custom luxury homes on lots averaging one acre. Paradise Green features luxury homes built in the mid-1980s by the builder Dick Hanson. Saddletree is a condominium community centrally located near 69th Street and Shea Boulevard. Other subdivisions within this area of Paradise Valley include Good Earth, Fischer Valley Estates, Quail Run among others.

Other subdivisions within Paradise Valley (South) include Valhalla, Praying Monk View Estates, Heritage Hills, Marion Estates, Park Paradise, Village at Camelback Mountain, and Camelback Sierra.


A rated Scottsdale Unified School District services the town of Paradise Valley, with Kiva Elementary, Cherokee Elementary, Cocopah Middle School, Ingleside Middle School and Chaparral High School as the town’s public schools. Phoenix Country Day School is within the area of South Paradise Valley.


Despite the town’s relatively small area and population compared to other municipalities in the Phoenix metropolitan area, Paradise Valley is one of Arizona’s premier tourist destinations and a haven for spas and golf resorts, including the Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia and the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback. Golfing options are not in short supply in Paradise Valley, as courses include the 18-hole course Paradise Valley Country Club which was established in 1953, as well as the Camelback Golf Club with its two courses, the Padre and the Ambiente.

Once you’re finished pampering yourself, enjoy fine dining at El Chorro or shopping at Paradise Valley Mall. Take the whole family to the nearby McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park and spend the day playing with model trains or riding the Paradise & Pacific Railroad. Looking for more to do? Mummy Mountain is in the center of Paradise Valley, while Piestewa Peak (formerly known as Squaw Peak) flanks its western border and Camelback Mountain is on the southern border of Paradise Valley. All these mountains and their corresponding parks and recreation areas provide opportunities for walking, hiking and mountain biking. The Phoenix Mountain Preserve has multiple levels of trails for varying fitness levels, and Echo Canyon Recreation Area is a popular starting point to tackle Camelback Mountain, a difficult hike.

With enormous estates, gorgeous views of both Camelback Mountain and Mummy Mountain, and plenty of golf courses, this upscale neighborhood in Phoenix is a great place to raise a family!

With upscale amenities comes a larger price tag. Median closing prices in Paradise Valley are $1.3 million and go upwards of $15,000,000.
