The Boulders Homes for Sale

homes for sale in the bouldersSnuggled inside the aptly named community of Carefree, Arizona, The Boulders is an exclusive community that takes it name from the spectacular rock formations that are liberally sprinkled across the surrounding landscape. But the word “boulders” doesn’t do justice to these massive, yet often delicately perched spherical pieces of 12-million-year-old granite that seem to have been dropped from the skies as if part of some ancient heavenly game of monolithic marbles.

One of the most extraordinary things about The Boulders is the fact that over half the property, which is north of Scottsdale, will always remain open space, limiting the amount of real estate that is available for the beautiful villas and homes that are scattered throughout the rugged terrain. This commitment to low density and desert preservation is one of the many magical attributes that make up The Boulders.

Privately owned real estate inside The Boulders consists of luxurious casitas and villas, sumptuous single family homes and sophisticated high Sonoran estates. Elegant custom homes built on large lots with sweeping views are par for the course, and speaking of “course,” two of the finest golf courses in the Valley are part of the world-renowned Boulders Resort and Spa, which is also host to top-notch tennis facilities, an ultra-lavish spa and a wealth of unique shopping and dining venues.

Designed by famed golf course architect Jay Morrish, both of this first-class resort’s championship courses are intimately nestled in the desert foothills and enjoy stunning scenery including magnificent precariously balanced boulder formations, a halo of violet-hued mountains and, of course, the luxuriant Sonoran desert. At a par of 72, the Boulders North course features 6,811 undulating yards of lush fairways and grassy greens, while the par-71, 6,727-yard Boulders South course shows off with numerous holes tucked tight against the looming boulder walls. Golfers frequently are privy to peekaboo views of indigenous wildlife, especially when hunting for wayward shots; in short, the experience is one of great beauty, great challenge and great wonderment at the majesties of Mother Nature and the natural splendor all around.

When it’s time to indulge your inner shopping diva, no problem at all, The Boulders is just minutes from downtown Carefree and its charming shops, picturesque eateries and fine art galleries. In addition, since it’s located just north of Scottsdale, it’s just a proverbial stone’s throw from everything wonderful that Scottsdale has to offer…dining, shopping, museums, galleries, theaters and cultural amenities par excellence.
