Living In Phoenix

Phoenix, a vibrant and growing city, is the 5th largest city in the United States and has long been on the list of Fastest Growing Cities in the country. It is home to teams from all the major sports leagues and outstanding Art & Culture. Though a large and expansive metropolis, it is home to some notable luxury neighborhoods.

Known for its sunny climate and spectacular desert landscapes, Phoenix and the surrounding cities of Scottsdale, Glendale and other destinations in Arizona’s Valley of the Sun feature vibrant culture and numerous opportunities for outdoor adventures and luxury. With the fabled Grand Canyon just four hours away, Phoenix is often thought of as the jumping-off point for vacation adventures, but the state’s capital city also features attractions that, while perhaps not as awe-inspiring, are equally breathtaking.

The area also knows all about relaxing and enjoying life in the sun. Recreation activities like the Big Surf water park and Rainbow Ryders Hot Air Balloon excursions are never hard to find.

Hundreds of manicured resorts and emerald golf courses snake through desert sands, and world-class spas are scattered throughout the valley, drawing thousands of visitors to this oasis in the northern Sonoran Desert.

The affluent areas of PHOENIX are divided loosely into TWO areas:
Area Info

Biltmore Area

Phoenix’s luxury neighborhoods are mostly located in the northeastern part of the city. The Biltmore area (85016) flows into the western edge of Paradise Valley and contains some of the city’s most upscale shopping and fine dining in the Biltmore Fashion Park. The Biltmore area near 24th Street and Camelback Road has two exclusive hi-rise condominiums, Esplanade Place and The Residence at 2211 E. Camelback (85016). The area gets its name from the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. This Phoenix landmark has pampered presidents, movie stars and guests since the 1920s. The grounds and golf courses are surrounded by upscale neighborhoods. There are many gated enclaves with patio homes located directly on the Biltmore grounds. The Biltmore Estates (85016) has large residences on larger lots that line the main street within the grounds. The Biltmore Hillside Villas (85016) has close up Phoenix Mountain Preserve views.

Call to Action

Arcadia Area

East of the Biltmore area is another of Phoenix’s luxury neighborhoods:

The Arcadia neighborhood (85018, 85251). Part of Arcadia touches the western edge of Scottsdale and is within minutes from Scottsdale Fashion Square while some of the area is in Phoenix but still close to downtown Scottsdale. Much of Arcadia was a large citrus grove and it is common to have a front lawn full of citrus trees. Lush green manicured lawns, large oleander hedges, huge mature trees, palms, and a scent of orange blossoms in the air in the spring all create a unique climate in this area. Camelback Mountain looms over the neighborhood with its eternal beauty. Arcadia is still filled with beautiful, well cared for postwar ranch homes. Many of these ranch homes have been torn down to build newer homes on larger lots.
