Nestled just South of Camelback Mountain between Paradise Valley, Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix, is the charming community known as Arcadia.
Famous for its family-friendly neighborhoods, great schools, lush landscaping, tree-lined streets and gorgeous architecture, Arcadia is one of the most popular communities in Arizona.
Arcadia features a variety of architectural styles from post-modern ranch houses to stunning, newly-built custom estates. Most homes sit on a half-acre of land.
Arcadia Proper built in the mid 1950’s, is the original Arcadia. Once home to Lemon, Orange and Grapefruit trees, Arcadia Proper has made way for new custom and estate-sized homes on half-acre lots ranging from the low $800,000 to $7,000,000.
Many home buyers buy original homes on large, oversized lots, tear them down and build beautiful custom homes and estates with guest houses and large resort yards, patios and pools.
Arcadia Lite is located to the West of Arcadia proper and attracts a younger crowd as it is a more central location, close to the Biltmore shops and restaurants and downtown Phoenix. Homes in Arcadia Lite are priced between $600,000 and $2,000,000.
Lower Arcadia – which is south of Indian School is also a family-friendly neighborhood much like Arcadia Proper. Homes in this area sell between $400,000-$1,000,000.
With plenty of outdoor activities, hiking and biking trails, Arcadia residents enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle.
Known for its popular local eateries such as the La Grande Orange, Chelsea’s Kitchen and Tarbells, Arcadia is also near several upscale shopping centers including Scottsdale Fashion Square and The Biltmore Shopping Center.
