Paradise Valley Miki Nakajima July 17, 2023

Arizona is famous for a number of things, but especially for its consistently warm weather. With sunshine all year round and gorgeous desert-scapes, it can be easy to see the appeal of the copper state. One of the biggest draws to the state is the opportunity to own larger properties for more privacy and space. Along with being a popular escape from winter and cold weather, Arizona is an excellent location for equestrian properties.

For those dreaming of more space, privacy, and beautiful land to enjoy with horses, Arizona may be the place for you. Located between Phoenix and Scottsdale, Paradise Valley is a dream getaway that you never have to leave. Let’s take a look at why this area is such an ideal place to live and explore some of the best equestrian homes for sale in Paradise Valley, Arizona.

Paradise Valley lives up to its name

Paradise Valley remains an exclusive, highly coveted area as it offers greater space, larger properties, and smaller populations. This area is close to many popular nature experiences and hiking trails, including the famous Mummy Mountain, named after its resemblance to an Egyptian mummy. Paradise Valley is independent of Phoenix and Scottsdale and, since its founding, has been known for having stricter policies for home building. Because of these regulations, this area remains exclusive and available properties can be few and far between.

Equestrian properties especially remain highly coveted in this area. If you are looking for a spacious, nature-filled, private getaway to settle down in, Paradise Valley equestrian properties are a great thing to keep an eye on. Keep note that this exclusive area has fewer properties available, so if you are ready to buy, it is best to do it as soon as possible. Let’s take a look at some of these exclusive Paradise Valley equestrian properties.
