Desert Highlands

The private golf community of Desert Highlands set the standard for all residential golf communities in Arizona as it was the very first community to be ever be built around a country club. There are 560 home sites scattered across 850 acres, but half of the land in Desert Highlands has been set aside to remain undeveloped to preserve the integrity and natural beauty of the surrounding Sonoran Desert and Pinnacle Peak. A variety of amenities, including stores, restaurants, banks, medical facilities are conveniently located within a 10-minute drive of Desert Highlands’ 24-hour manned guard gate.

Real Estate

While most of the residences in Desert Highlands are custom, there are 2 semi-custom neighborhoods within the community: The Heights and the Hillside Villa Estates. Development began in the mid-1980’s, but a few custom homes continue to be built today. In addition, there remains a limited number of vacant lots that have not yet been developed.
