Phoenix Luxury Real Estate by The Katz GroupSome of the most spectacular sights of the desert await you just a short drive north of Phoenix and Scottsdale. When you feel like leaving the tall buildings and hustle and bustle behind, the places to go for some relaxing fun are the Towns of Carefree and Cave Creek. 

Vast stretches of the wide-open Sonoran Desert, pristine mountain vistas, giant boulder formations, a sparkling lake and towering saguaro cacti are all part of the magical landscape waiting for you here in one of Arizona's last frontiers. Characterized as an upscale residential area, Carefree was conceived in the mid-1950's by business partners K.T. Palmer and Tom Darlington as a master-planned community. 

Land sales commenced in 1955 and homebuilding followed shortly thereafter in 1958. Typical of Carefree's character are its street names - Tranquil Trail, Easy Street, Ho and Hum Roads and Long Rifle, Stagecoach and Bloody Basin - which reflect both its quiet, casual air as well as its Western heritage. 

The motto of Carefree is "Home of Cowboys and Caviar, Where the Old West Meets the New." Almost 4,000 residents live in this tiny - less than 9 square miles - community. 

Larger at 28.2 square miles, Cave Creek is every bit as charming as its neighbor. But Cave Creek, established as a gold mining town and stopping point for the U.S. Calvary in the mid 187'0s, is not like most other towns. While most of the buildings built in the 1800's are probably gone, many that are standing have been there longer than anyone can remember and are reminiscent of what things looked like in the Wild West so long ago. 

Cave Creek has become one of the most recognized Western towns in the U.S. featuring several saloons, western shops, rodeo events, galleries and live music.
