About North Phoenix

North Phoenix is a great place to live, work and play. The commute is easy to Scottsdale, Glendale and Central Phoenix. Yet being on the northern fringe of the metro area, its a short hop to Prescott, Sedona and Flagstaff.

And there’s plenty to do right here. There are several mountain preserves in the region, all just a few minutes drive from any NoPho neighborhood, offering endless miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding. Lake Pleasant, just 20 minutes from the intersection of I-17 and the Carefree Highway, has two marinas from which you can sail, ski, kayak, fish, or do whatever it is the kids do these days.

Speaking of kids: You’ll be hard-pressed to find an area with more choices in schools, including some that tout top scores on statewide tests. School Information Guide >>>

You may also need to find nearby supermarkets and shopping centers, or get information on the local utilities.

Looking for a home? You’ll find gated and non-gated communities, humble one-story abodes, huge two-story houses, chic patio homes with an urban flair, low-maintenance condos, and sprawling desert territorials. You’ll find numerous neighborhoods with homes that have stunning desert and mountain views. Want a pool? There are lots of them. Looking for tennis, golf, hiking trails or other community amenities? We’ll arm you with that information. Neighborhood Information Guide >>>

You’ll find these guides in the main menu at the top of every page, along with the link to our News section, where we report on new businesses, real estate developments and community and school news.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for, or have a question or comment, please let us know.

Meanwhile, some images of the places we call home:

Throughout the region, you’ll fine single-story and two-story homes, including a significant amount of new construction, like these homes in Stoneledge.
24 north
The detached patio homes at 24 North bring a distinct urban vibe to North Phoenix.
Check out a community’s homeowner association (HOA) rules before you buy a home. Some HOAs limit the types of plants and trees to native desert flora. Others, like Valley Vista, invite palm trees.
desert village condos
Several North Phoenix communities offer the choice of single-family homes, compact patio homes or a yard-maintenance-free condos like these at Desert Village.
tramonto tennis courts
Many North Phoenix communities have shared amenities ranging from pools and parks to tennis courts. In Tramonto, some of those features are tucked away in amazing settings.
