Desert Retreat


Sonoran Treasure

Paradise Reserve was designed as a living tribute to the Sonoran Desert. From the moment you arrive, the complexities of the world are behind you and ahead is the elegant simplicity of private, protected hillside living along the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. This remarkable acreage has been sensitively transformed by the developer into a rare collection of expansive, gated and guarded custom estate sites with a surprisingly small environmental footprint. While only minutes from the Phoenix metro area’s world-class amenities, your mountain escape redefines graceful living -- unspoiled open desert ambiance framed by untouched natural landscapes and breathtaking mountain vistas. 

Beauty from Nature

How did the developer accomplish this extraordinary task? By applying their proven philosophy of “Beauty from Nature” throughout the site’s 46+ acres. All the land was either...

  • Preserved… Building envelopes and untouched areas were left intact, in their natural state
  • Restored… The area's expansive Federally-protected wash was restored to serve as a vital greenway corridor for generations to come
  • Reclaimed… Natural stone walls and understated winding roadways bring you through the heart of the canyon and the land’s natural wash areas
  • Renewed… For the enjoyment of homeowners, the Reserve's Flower Garden and Dog Park are special places designed to help residents relax and renew their spirits

In addition, all structural design elements were defined for their graceful integration into the Sonoran environment:  classic architectural style, a controlled palette of desert-sensitive colors, low-profile natural roadways, unobtrusive lighting and natural materials defined in our design guidelines such as clay tile roofs, imported custom brickwork and tumbled pavers.
