Tramonto & Sonoran Foothills Area Neighborhoods

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May. 


Neighborhoods in this region of North Phoenix (south of Cloud Road, east of I-17, north of Sonoran Desert Drive) have quick access to I-17, and three major shopping centers are each within a 10- to 15-minute drive: Outlets at Anthem to the north; Shops at Norterra and the Happy Valley Towne Center to the south. Four regional parks that offer hiking, fishing and boating are all within 30-minute drives — and Phoenix Sonoran Desert Preserve is right in some peoples’ backyards. It’s about a 35-mile drive to Sky Harbor International Airport.

24 North: Homes, Schools, Shopping & Community Information

Tucked into the burgeoning suburbs along Norterra Parkway is this gated, urban-inspired swatch of freestanding "courtyard villas." Each blocky, chic home shares a front courtyard with five others.

Amber Hills: Homes, Schools, Shopping & Community Information

A small neighborhood among several west of I-17 and just south of the Carefree Highway, with a range of floor plans to choose from. The community is a short drive away an Albertson's grocery and a shopping plaza that includes a fitness center. The Outlets at Anthem is less than 10 minutes away.

Carefree Crossing: Homes, Schools, Shopping & Community Information

A mid-sized community that occupies a swath of real estate between Carefree Highway and Dove Valley Road, with both gated and non-gated sections. Residents are very close to the shopping areas to the north and south, and have quick, easy access to I-17.

La Solana: Homes, Schools, Shopping & Community Information

This small community is right across the street (North Valley Parkway) from the new Fry's Marketplace. It's a compact neighborhood with easy access to I-17 and the Happy Valley area.

Sonoran Foothills: Classic Master-Planned Community

One of the larger HOA-governed communities in the North Valley, Sonoran Foothills has more amenities than most nearby communities — all the things you'd expect in a master-planned development. While it has gated and non-gated sections, the central community center, pool and other common features create the sense of a cohesive community.

Sonoran Foothills: Desert Village

This gated enclave of condos is under construction within the the much larger Sonoran Foothills subdivision. Desert Village is aimed at empty nesters and others who may wish to downsize, or anyone looking for a low-maintenance home with a modern feel.

Stoneledge at North Canyon: New Homes, With a View

This prominently positioned hillside community overlooks I-17, just south of Carefree Highway. Unlike many neighborhoods on the desert floor, Stoneledge offers remarkable views of the entire North Valley.

Tramonto: City-Like Streets & Mountainside Views

Remarkable architecture varies from closely-spaced, urban-like patio homes to sprawling hillside homes with broad vistas — and everything in between. Tramonto offers stunning views and lots of open space, all a stone's throw from I-17. And yes, you can say you live along the Carefree Highway. Yep, that one.
