Silverleaf takes the cake when it comes to the sheer number of high-value homes in a single gated area. The DC Ranch community is a labyrinth of homes rising up into the McDowell Mountains complimented by private parks, an exclusive golf course, and a 24-hour fitness facility. While the neighborhood isn't exactly within walking distance to much, it is only a short drive to North Scottsdale hubs like WestWorld, Kierland Commons, and Scottsdale Quarter. Currently listed homes in Silverleaf are priced as low as $4,725,000 and as high as $32,000,000.
