Desert Ridge is one of North Phoenix’s most desirable communities in which to live, thanks to its beautifully landscaped neighborhoods, numerous amenities, and its top-rated schools. Centrally located near the intersection of Tatum Boulevard and two freeways (State Route 51 and the Loop 101), Desert Ridge is home to a wide range of homeowners, including families, professionals and empty nesters.
The majority of homes in Desert Ridge are single family homes. The newest subdivision in Desert Ridge is Sanctuary, a gated Taylor Morrison community featuring 3 to 4 bedroom homes ranging from 1982 to 3811 square feet, as well as its own community center. There are four distinct neighborhoods/collections within this subdivision: Discovery, Passage, Capstone and the Venture Collection.
To the west of Sanctuary is the Aviano subdivision, built by Toll Brothers. This master-planned community features larger single family homes, many with pools, 3 car garages, and 4 and 5 bedrooms. The hallmark of Aviano is its community center, with a large pool, spa, tennis courts, meeting rooms, and workout facility. Next door to the community center is the incredible Aviano Community Park with its manicured soccer fields, walking paths, sand volleyball courts, and an extra-large, shaded adventure playground.
