Fountain Hills

Fountain Hills is east of Scottsdale past the Mayo Clinic via Shea Blvd. It is known for its rolling hilly roads and views from most homes. There is a central iconic Fountain in the city center, with events during the winter months. Mostly recognized as a retirement community, there is also a public school system and plenty of families are full time residents.   The most exclusive golf community surrounds Firerock Country Club, where homes range from new build lock and leave condominiums and patio homes, large estates exceeding 8,500 square feet. Driveways are steep due to the inclines, and most luxury homes have interior steps. But the views are absolutely incredible.
