North Phoenix Real Estate

    North Phoenix runs right through the middle of the North Valley, all the way down to Piestewa Peak Park. Several neighborhoods in the area are ranked among the best places to live in the Valley of the Sun. The low cost of living, unique mix of established and new, and close proximity to hiking trails have filled North Phoenix with young singles and families.

    With the Phoenix Mountain Preserves bordering the area to the south, and Cave Buttes Recreation Area and Phoenix Sonoran Mountain Preserve bordering the area to the north, North Phoenix attracts a large number of outdoor enthusiasts. Reach 11 Recreation Area also lies just southeast of where the 51 runs into the 101, and it offers hiking and horseback riding without leaving the city. Golf courses also litter the area, and there are always flying lessons at the Phoenix Deer Valley Municipal Airport for the truly adventurous.

    Next door to the Reach 11 Recreation Area is one of the most iconic museums in Phoenix, the Musical Instrument Museum, with multiple events and concerts happening each week. Families love to spend the day at Castles ‘N Coasters, a kid-friendly theme park.

    North Phoenix is also surrounded by some of the best shopping in the Valley. Desert Ridge Marketplace is a large outdoor mall just north of the 101 with basics like Target, Albertsons, and PetSmart, as well as some great restaurants. Paradise Valley Mall is just six miles south of Desert Ridge Marketplace and offers more of the typical mall experience with stores like Macy’s and Dillard’s. Kierland Commons and the Scottsdale Quarter, outdoor malls that sit just over the border of North Phoenix and North Scottsdale, offer higher-end shopping and some of the best restaurants in Phoenix.

    North Phoenix is home to a variety of great restaurants, with everyone’s favorite chains as well as award-winning local restaurants. Scramble uses local farmers and vendors to male “Best Breakfast in the Valley.” Different Pointe of View offers fine dining and stunning views from atop North Mountain. Residents love to catch the game and food by a culinary-trained chef at Half Moon Sports Grille, which has been nationally recognized as one of the best sports bars in the country. And anyone with a sweet tooth should be sure to stop by Classic Cakes and Confections.
