RECORD ARIZONA HOME SALE IN NORTH SCOTTSDALE
Ten Bathrooms? In my opinion, not the best lead-in for this AZ Central article describing the most expensive home sale in Arizona’s history. Being a guy, I’d probably lead with the amazing 17 acre parcel in DC Ranch’s Silverleaf with the 10 car garage, followed by 29,700 Sq Ft

Some folks may wonder why we include the 85259-zip code in North Scottsdale? The same folks rightly ask the question about 85254, 85258, and 85260 as well? After all, if you look at the long (32 miles) city of Scottsdale, you’d see it to be more central or South Central than north.
It was not too long in Scottsdale’s past (1960’s) that if you lived around Shea Blvd, that was considered “nose-bleed” country. Even McCormick Ranch (85258) was considered pretty far north from Old Town.
So the answer seems to be that for many of us who have been here for awhile, these zip code communities were a part of North Scottsdale.
85259 Zip Code contains numerous upscale communities, such as Stonegate, The Ancala Country Club, portions of Scottsdale Ranch, Scottsdale Mountain, Cactus Gates, Rancho Trinidad, Hidden Hills, and Bella Montagna.
Mountain and City light views, terrific convenience to recreation, shopping, golf, and health facilities abound. In fact, some folks refer to the Shea Blvd N/S dividing line as the “Medical Mile” with Honor hospital and the Mayo clinic plus hundreds of all types of medical offices within a few miles.
Schools are excellent in the 85259 community which includes Desert Mountain High and Middle public school. One of the highest rated schools in the country is the Basis Charter School encompassing grades 5-12. Anasazi Elementary is another excellent choice.
As of the fall of 2020, 91 homes were listed for sale at an average list price of $1.32M. Pending listings average list prices were $860,000, while closed sales over the past 6 months averaged $842,000.
