On this map area, the town of Carefree is just northeast of the town of Cave Creek. There are a few major subdivisions within Carefree, proper. Desert Mountain is an 8,000-acre master-planned community featuring a wide range of homes from single-family to condos to townhomes in separate neighborhoods (or “villages”), many of which are gated. Developed by Lyle Anderson, Desert Mountain also features six different clubhouses, a tennis center as well as a spa, swimming and fitness facility. Desert Mountain is also home to the world’s largest collection of championship courses designed by Jack Nicklaus. These six courses, with 108 holes, provide opportunities for individual play at various skill levels. Ranging from the intimidating Geronimo with its 160-yard, par 3 last hole over a canyon to the most recent Outlaw course with its Scottish links design, there is a course for everyone. The golf practice facilities are extensive, with multiple pitching, chipping, putting and bunker areas, and four separate practice ranges with target greens. The most recent addition is the $1.6 million Jim Flick Golf Performance Center which features 3-D motion capture, Doppler radar and four-camera video motion analysis to help golfers improve and understand their game.
Carefree is home to dozens of residential lots ranging in size from 1 to 10 acres, many of which have been developed and are buildable now. Some lots are in private, gated communities, while others are more rustic and not accessible via paved roads, yet enjoy incredible privacy along with majestic mountain and desert vistas.
Located southeast of Desert Mountain is the guard-gated golf community of Mirabel, which offers both luxury single family homes and condos. Mirabel also features the Tom Fazio designed championship-level, 7,147-yard, par-71 18-hole course. This prestigious club offers a caddie program, as well as on course comfort and chef stations. Mirabel was recognized by Golf Digest as one of “America’s 50 Best Modern Golf Courses.”
