Cave Creek

Welcome to Cave Creek

Living in a Cave Creek neighborhood offers buyers the opportunity to enjoy the most spacious lots, less traffic, and larger homes than can be found in the city. From majestic mountain views and natural Sonoran Desert landscapes to lots reaching five acres or more, the community is larger than life for those who have been city dwellers their entire lives. However, all amenities are located just a short distance from these serene home locations. Even the commute to downtown is less stressful, knowing that you will return to the peaceful community of Cave Creek each night.
Lots in Cave Creek that are considered to be small are often five times larger than the typical square lots offered in city communities. Half an acre is not unusual, nor is five acres or more. In addition, the property owner can typically improve as much of the lot as they choose with outdoor features like a massive swimming pool, basketball court, tennis court, pool cabana, or outdoor living and dining space. Outdoor living is very popular with residents as they take in the mountain views and beauty of the desert.
The houses in Cave Creek offer something for every nature lover. From smaller homes in the 1,600 square foot size to massive estates with over 8,000 square feet, all can be found in Cave Creek. And regardless of the community, Cave Creek Unified School District is there to provide quality public education from K-12th grade. Prices in the area range from the high $300Ks to well over the $5M price point.
