Founded in the late 1990s, DC Ranch is a picturesque community nestled at the base of the McDowell Mountains. What makes DC Ranch different than other communities is that it has four distinct villages: Market Street, Country Club, Desert Camp and Desert Parks Village. These villages feature a variety of home types, including patio homes, town homes, condominiums, and single family homes.
For example, Tapadero Villas, within Country Club Village, offers townhomes which range in size from 2,600 to 3,000 square feet. Country Club Village is guard-gated and includes access to the Tom Lehman and John Fought Golf Courses in DC Ranch. The nearby Desert Camp Village features Rosewood Homes, which are 34 luxury homes, which back up to open space. These homes have five different floor plans and range in size from 2,300 to 4,000 square feet. Camelot Homes offers tri-plex villas, single-family 2-3 bedroom homes, ranging in size from 2,062 to 2,600 square feet, in a gated subdivision within walking distance to nearby Market Street.
There are three different monthly Home Homeowner’s Association fees in DC Ranch which fall into three categories: Community Council, the Ranch Association as well as Neighborhood fees (where applicable). These fees fund the operation and maintenance of the community centers and amenities, as well as common area maintenance. Some neighborhood fees also cover security features.
