Arcadia at Silverleaf is located west of Thompson Peak Parkway just south of Copper Ridge School and bordered by the Reata Wash on the west side. These half-acre lots have fenced rear yards, three parks, and the architecture is Spanish Mission. This is a more traditional neighborhood with homes close together and tree-lined streets.

The Parks neighborhood is located off Thompson Peak Parkway on each side of Windgate Pass Drive. One section is located behind the Windgate gate and the other is located behind Horseshoe gate. The architecture is classical Spanish Eclectic and it was designed to be more of a formal elegant neighborhood like you may find in the historic districts in other cities. The Parks features a series of interconnected neighborhoods, more formal landscape, tree-lined streets and 11 parks., all in close proximity to Copper Ridge School with a pedestrian underpass for walking or bicycling to school.


For those in love with this location and the exclusivity and privacy of the higher luxury lots, but perhaps wanting even more privacy, seclusion and diversity of architecture, you will want to explore Lost Canyon. This guard gated community is limited to just 35 large luxury home lots, but with lot sizes double or triple in size for your own private oasis. On the other side of the ridge from the Upper Canyon of Silverleaf, Lost Canyon provides homesites providing 6 to 10 Acres of Natural Sonoran Desert Preserve as your privacy barrier. Architecture can be as diverse as this extreme contemporary on lot #34. Many of the ten or so lots that have been completed since the area began to be developed in early the 2000s are seasonal owners as second or third homes. Quiet, Solitude, Diverse Architecture, Privacy. Lost Canyon.
