The Ultimate in Sonoran Desert Elegance in the Heart of Scottsdale’s McDowell Mountains

Seemingly etched into the heart of the Sonoran Desert in Scottsdale, Arizona, Silverleaf is an exclusive enclave destined to rank among the finest communities in the world. Throughout this undisturbed realm of High Sonoran Desert, one senses the grandeur of life and the rhythm of the desert as giant saguaros stand like silent sentinels patiently observing the passage of time. Far above the city lights below, one may pause to watch a lingering sunset and feel the gentle evening breeze with its subtle hint of sage.


At the center of this prestigious community, the new Tom Weiskopf-designed Silverleaf course has been sculpted from the land with great care and concern for the delicate desert environment. Surely one of the crowning achievements in Weiskopf’s illustrious career, the 7,267-yard course winds unobtrusively through the pristine desert, its meticulously maintained tees, fairways and greens stand in contrast with the rich desert palette of saguaro, ocotillo, sage and palo verde.


Elements of the Silverleaf course have been carefully positioned to capture dramatic vistas of the valley below, the McDowell Mountain peaks and passes above and the tranquil essence of the Sonoran Desert. Multiple tee placements, ranging from 5,199-yards at the forward tees to 7,267-yards at the championship tees, assure a challenge appropriate for golfers at all levels of play. The real challenge here may be to avoid being captivated by the natural charms of the surrounding terrain.


Silverleaf will be a community of remarkable beauty– its amenities and desert landscape nestled within North Scottsdale’s McDowell Mountains. The community will have three distinct neighborhoods: The Parks, Upper Canyon and Horseshoe Canyon.


The Parks will feature intimate parkside homes ranging from 2,600 to more than 5,000 sq.ft. as well as custom homes in an area bordering the 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 9th and 10th holes and featuring natural desert washes, conservation areas and 7 parks.


The Upper Canyon offers large estate homesites that range in size from 1.1 acres to more than 30 acres. Perched high above the Valley floor overlooking the 6th, 7th and 8th holes of the Silverleaf course, these spectacular homesites offer breathtaking views of city lights and golf course vistas.


Horseshoe Canyon occupies an unparalleled example of the High Sonoran Desert.


All Silverleaf homesites have been carefully planned to allow a wide range of architectural expressions, and every property is situated to emphasize privacy. Each home will suit the individual tastes of the owner with design parameters that will ensure harmony with the desert land­scape, creating a unique desert community. Silverleaf will be a unique desert community distinguished by its individuality.


Silverleaf’s clubhouse, constructed with native materials and showcasing a rural Mediterranean flair, will feature gathering places intimate enough for two yet expansive enough for festive gatherings. A spa with indoor-outdoor massage suites and a full range of services will offer an opportunity to reflect and rejuvenate. At night, Silverleaf will shine. Desert plants, wildlife, stars and moonlight will lend an air of mystery and enchantment while the restaurant will offer superb cuisine, fine wines and soft ambience in a captivating setting.


Silverleaf draws upon the considerable experience, resources and talents of DMB Associates, Inc. DMB’s name is synonymous with high-quality large-scale real estate developments with projects that include the award-winning DC Ranch residential community; Lahontan, a private golf community in North Lake Tahoe; Forest Highlands, an 1,100-acre private community with two Tom Weiskopf courses in the mountains of Flagstaff, Arizona, and Santaluz, a 3,800-acre private golf community with a Rees Jones course in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
