Carefree, AZ Real Estate

Carefree AZ Real Estate Overview

Drive North of Phoenix and Scottsdale and discover gracious, “Carefree” living in a desert forest of rare beauty. The Town of Carefree was one of the first master-planned communities in the area. Masterminded by its two founding fathers, KT Palmer and Tom Darlington. Naming the community came from Tom Darlington’s business name, “Carefree Development Corp.” Easy livin’ street names like Easy Street, Ho-Hum and Tranquil Trail were selected to portray the “Carefree” lifestyle people find here.


The Carefree visionaries were fervent in protecting the desert vegetation during the building process. Today the Sonoran desert is a nature lover’s paradise. Towering saguaros, cacti, and wildflowers provide a rich habitat for diverse wildlife. The Carefree area offers a variety of trails for hikers, bicycles and horses ranging from easy to more difficult. Go John Trail, Spur Cross, Seven Springs and Gateway Desert Awareness Park are a few of the favorites.


World-class private golf courses, The Boulders and Desert Forest are situated in the spectacular, scenic, lush Sonoran Desert. Public courses include the beautiful Rancho Manana, Dove Valley and Legend Trails.


The beauty of the Carefree desert inspires artists, musicians and writers. Fine art galleries, festivals and gatherings showcase the works of artists, many of them local. All genres of music are featured from country to jazz. In addition, other entertainment includes live bull riding, rodeo events, western dance lessons, concerts and live theater.


The forward thinking of Palmer and Darlington led to innovative concepts of extreme mountain architecture and construction and subdued exterior colors to preserve the natural beauty of the desert. Carefree offers apartment style flats, townhouses and single-family homes. The homes sold in the past year have ranged in size from 1300 square feet to 6500 square feet. Prices of homes sold ranged from $140,000 to $2,925,000.


Come and enjoy the casual elegance of the Carefree lifestyle!
