Welcome to the page devoted to The Town of Paradise Valley, Arizona 85253. I lived in the Town of Paradise Valley, on Mummy Mountain, for 21-years so I am very familiar with the Town of Paradise Valley and all it has to offer. I am also a member of the Luxury Home Tour and personally see over 200 multi-million dollar luxury estate homes every year so I am very familiar with the different parts of The Town of Paradise Valley and home values in each area.
85253 is centrally located in-between Phoenix and Scottsdale. Most of the Town of Paradise Valley is zoned R-43 which requires a minimum of 1-acre of land per home. 85253 also blessed with Camelback Mountain, Mummy Mountain, and the Phoenix Mountain Preserve so many homes have Spectacular Mountain Views, Spectacular City Light Views or both. 85253 is fairly close to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, and close to the night life and shopping of three of Metro Phoenix's Urban centers, 24th & Camelback The Biltmore, Scottsdale & Camelback Old Town Scottsdale, and Scottsdale & Greenway Kierland. So if you want to buy a Condo for $200,000 to be in the 3-C's School District, or if you want to buy a $10 million+ luxury estate 85253 is a fantastic place to call home!

Now here is a map* of the town of Paradise Valley. For the most part the northern boundary is Mountain View Road and it only goes to Shea in one place. Clearwater Hills and the Franciscan Renewal Center are County Islands and not part of the town of Paradise valley. There is also a strip of commercial developments on the west side of Scottsdale road beginning at Indian Bend road and continuing south to Jackrabbit. The Ritz Carlton is planning a high-end retail development in conjunction with its new Ritz Carlton Paradise Valley Hotel and Luxury Homes on the South West corner of Scottsdale and Indian Bend road in the city of Scottsdale 85253.

And just so you can see how the zoning is laid out, here is the zoning map*. The 1-acre R-43 zoning is yellow and encompasses most of the Town of Paradise Valley. The red x's are the mountains which have hillside zoning which is also a minimum of 1-acre, but much more restrictive to preserve the beauty of the mountains.
