Lost Canyon Scottsdale 85255


Lost Canyon is Scottsdale's best kept secret!

GUARD GATED, just 35 lots with minimum lot sizes exceeding 5 acres, the "only gated canyon in Scottsdale" is so quiet only the sounds of nature can be heard. Without an invite, you've probably never been here.

Development of this canyon in the McDowells is on the backside of Silverleaf's Upper Canyon, where some of the highest priced homes in Scottsdale reside. Lost Canyon is a great alternative for those not wanting to join a Country Club. 



Over 200 miles of some of the best hiking is near by. The Canyon is also just minutes from Scottsale's annual Phoenix Open, Collector Car Auctions and the best restaurants, entertainment, nightclubs and shopping,

Lost Canyon lies just north of the 101 Loop, Kierland and the Scottsdale Quarter. The private canyon is owned by just 35 secluded homesites on a minimum of 190,000 square foot lots, and building pads ensuring each home's privacy. Heading north on Pima from the 101, turn right (east) at the Starbucks/AJs shopping plaza at Pima and Pinnacle Peak and head into the McDowells 5 minutes. Yes, you are THAT close to convenience. Close enough, but far enough, that is the beauty of this hidden treasure.

Lost Canyon is about 6 miles from Scottsdale's private airport, best known during the Barrett Jackson Collector Car Auction, equestrian events and Phoenix Open, each just 10 minutes away. Just far enough to allow residents to enjoy the complete silence and dark sky solitude of the Mountain Preserve nature preserve.


The LOST CANYON 240-acre community is about 3 miles southeast of Pima and Pinnacle Peak roads, deep inside the McDowell Mountains. With elevations as high as 2,342 feet, the homes have stunning views to the northwest, with no visability from Pima Road, unique to the western slopes of the McDowell Mountains.


Lost Canyon is a natural amphitheater of desert foothills, ravines, washes and rock outcroppings enhanced by a well established Sonoran desert landscape with minimal alteration. Within the confines of the Lost Canyon valley and the environmentally sensitive eco-system, only a limited number of homesites were achievable without major alteration of the hillside. This required strict architectural guidelines and restrictions to ensure a subtle blending of the manmade and natural environment.  Within the building envelope, residences have been sited so that important views are protected, natural drainage is not significantly altered and the overall philosophy of Lost Canyon is implemented by integrating each residence with the natural desert.



There are currently two homes listed in Lost Canyon

  • Lot #34 Contemporary Modern SINGLE LEVEL LIVING hilltop home $5,600.000. This 7,600 square foot 5 bedroom 8 bath hillside home sits at an elevation of 2,190 feet on nearly 6 acres backing to the 30,000 acre McDowell Sonoran Mountain Preserve. Digital Brochure Link
  • Lot #30, REDUCED to $9.8 Million, this 3 Bedroom, 4 bath home is 7,500 square feet on 13 acres. Originally priced at $13,500,000 in the summer of 2022, the home returned to market just before the 2023 holidays reduced to $9,800,000 . 

Both of these homes are marketed for their contemporary architecture, floor to ceiling glass and 360 degree mountain views


Lot #34 was inspired by the elements of earth, sky and water, this mid-century modern contemporary luxury home harmonizes with complete and total immersion into the Upper Canyon of the McDowell  Mountains. Renown Chicago Architect Gordon Rogers was invited into AIA Fellowship with his unique combination of artistic expression and scientific discipline. Using sophisticated design elements of full floor to ceiling glass, Gordon showcases the canyon above and below with the mountain side-cutting required to achieve 540 degree views. The 5 ensuite bedroom, 8 bath home is uniquely laid out on a single level with no steps and a negative edge pool with cascading water fall echoing into the canyon below. The bonus lower level with full tiered theatre with it’s own lobby/game room, a full bath, gym, and secondary garage and outside access, accessible by stairs or elevator. The home was one of the first to earn the prestigious Scottsdale Green Home designation for its highly efficient design at a cool 2,190 foot high elevation.
