Carefree is a gorgeous resort town surrounded by spectacular mountain views and scattered with prehistoric boulder stacks and verdant desert vegetation.
Carefree Arizona is located north of the 101 and was one of first planned communities in Arizona. Carefree began when two partners bought a goat ranch and 2,000 acres in the mid-1950s, and then chose a soothing assortment of street names like “Easy Street” and “Tranquil Lane.”
Elite luxury homes and amenities combined with natural desert beauty to make Carefree home value’s the second most expensive in the Valley, surpassed only by Paradise Valley. Wildlife like coyotes, javelina, and jackrabbits roam the calm roads.
With a population of less than 4,000, Carefree offers residents a slow-paced lifestyle without forsaking any luxury amenities. Most Carefree homeowners are retired, and others are well-heeled “snow birds” that come to enjoy the pleasant winter months.
Three, four, five, and even $6 million dollar homes are commonplace amid Carefree’s luxury real estate. Santa-Fe contemporary is a popular style. A traditional Carefree home will feature Southwestern-style wooden exposed wooden beams, courtyard fountains, outdoor fireplaces, and a variety of wall niches.
