Stationed on 1,300 acres of land in the Sonoran Desert foothills, this secluded community gets its name from the magnificent boulder outcroppings that are scattered throughout the community. Some of these formations are almost 12 million years old. Over half of the land in the Boulders community is dedicated to remain open space. Because the neighborhood straddles the border between Scottsdale and Carefree, the community is partially located in Scottsdale and partially located in Carefree.
The Boulders is also home to the Boulders Resort and Spa, an upscale golf and spa resort that is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton.
The Boulders offers buyers a variety of lifestyle choices ranging from villas and patio homes to luxury custom estates on spacious lots. The area’s 12 unique communities are arranged around The Boulders’ two top-rated golf courses, affording residents beautiful views of the golf course and the mountains.
In 2021, home sales in the Boulders ranged from $730,000 to $2,700,000. The average sale price was $1,295,000.
