Madrid of Scottsdale

Madrid of Scottsdale is a beautiful gated community offering estate sized homes at the base of the McDowell Mountains near
Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd
100th Street
in the desirable 85260 zip code.  Madrid offers two separate gated sections located on either side of Frank Lloyd Wright.  The community has a total of 85 lots -  Approximately 60 homes are behind the iron gates off of Thunderbird on the west side of Frank Lloyd Wright, and 25 homes are on the east side of FLW.  Madrid is a newer Scottsdale neighborhood, built by Hancock, a Meritage Homes Corporation starting in 2003 and was completed as recently as 2006.

Homes in Madrid range in size from approximately 3,700 square feet to over 5,700 square feet, with some homes offering basements.  Although property lot sizes vary, they are generous in size and average approximately 15,000 square feet.   

Stunning mountain vistas are complemented by the classic architecture.  Madrid is influenced by its European name and neighboring Italy with the Tuscan styling, courtyards, turrets and rotundas, intricate stonework and well-manicured yards.  Madrid is one of Scottsdale’s best kept secrets with grand, regal homes in the hub of north Scottsdale, but nestled quietly against the picturesque backdrop of the mountains.   

I’ve been fortunate to view a number of homes in Madrid.  Spectacular kitchens with gorgeous woods, imported granites and unique stove hoods seem to be one of the many hallmarks of distinction in these homes.

Close to shopping, dining, entertainment, parks, recreation and cultural attractions – in fact, the famed Taliesin West is just a few blocks to the south – residents continue to remark about Madrid’s perfect location in the heart of their beloved 85260.
