The luxury neighborhood of Silverleaf can be found within the master-planned community of DC Ranch. Residents are able to enjoy two DC Ranch community centers with pools, fitness rooms, playgrounds, sports courts and a community theater playhouse. Silverleaf is also close to these three distinctive DC Ranch shopping plazas: Market Street, DC Ranch Crossing and Canyon Village, where grocery stores, boutique shopping, coffee and restaurants can be found. Residents have access to over 33 miles of walking paths that connect each of DC Ranch’s neighborhoods to one another. Just south of Silverleaf is the “Gateway Trailhead”, which grants residents access to another 100 miles of hiking trails that wind through the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. The DC Ranch Village Health Club and Spa is located right next to Silverleaf, and is a private health club and spa where members can take fitness classes, order healthy food and enjoy the club’s numerous spa services. Use of the spa doesn’t require a membership, but members are able to enjoy it at a reduced rate.
The first homes to be built in Silverleaf were completed in the early 2000’s. Custom homes continue to be built today. Developer product still available, as well as developer and resale custom home sites. Silverleaf has 3 separate, guard-gated enclaves, each accessible off of Thompson Peak Parkway. The entire area is landscaped beautifully with neighborhood parks, gardens and fountains scattered throughout. Flatter areas of the community showcase a variety of semi-custom and custom homes. As you continue east into Upper Canyon and Horseshoe Canyon, lot sizes get bigger and the elevation gets higher, resulting in a collection of hillside estates with breathtaking views of the city. This area has some of the most expensive real estate in Phoenix.
