Carefree, Arizona

is located adjacent to North Scottsdale – far North Scottsdale, and adjacent to Cave Creek, Arizona.  Situated at an elevation of 2,382 feet, and nestled to the East of the notorious Black Mountain rising high into the majestic azure skies, Carefree enjoys slightly cooler Summer temperatures than the Valley below and even a light dusting of snow falls across its foothills for a few hours at least one time each January.  Approximately 3,487 residents live within this 8.9 square mile scenic area that beckons hikers, bikers, artists and those who wish to meander through the quaint shops of the Town of Carefree.  Boating enthusiasts can drive a quick 17 miles to Bartlett Lake in the Tonto National Forest, too!  Cultural…historical…musical…fun in the sun and a whole lot more awaits you in Carefree, Arizona!

Housing is diversified in Carefree, Arizona.  Ranch homesteads on vast amounts of land, ideal for horses as well as limited space Villas for the occasional visits from snow country for respite and enjoyment.  Five acre parcels with custom built homes to suit are tucked away into the foothills, offering alternating sunrises and sunsets with an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna, cactus, color and golf, restaurants and the wild Western town of Cave Creek is right next door – ride a buffalo, rope a steer, or down a beer!

The renowned Boulders Resort, including its popular golf and amenities, is near along with Sky Ranch for the private air pilot.

Known for its Art Festivals, the Thunderbird Artists’ Fine Art and Wine Festival is looked forward to annually both locally and nationally and the Carefree Sundial and Carefree Desert Gardens are popular family destinations, as well.

Contact me for chats about the old movie studio days, John Travolta stories and one of my favorite tales about the selection of a hill top home (atop Black Mountain) back in the 70’s via helicopter!  Not here…you need to call me for that conversation!  Too many, and too fun, to tell here!
