Welcome to Silverleaf
Intimate mountain enclave with bespoke homesites
Silverleaf is a stunning Scottsdale enclave perched atop the McDowell mountains, offering a panoramic view of the Valley floor. Just a few centuries ago, Silverleaf was established as a cattle ranch. However, since its revival in 2002 as a master-planned community, Silverleaf has become synonymous with peaceful, exclusive modern living.
The upscale gated neighborhood cradles some of Scottsdale’s most expensive real estate. Silverleaf’s properties draw architectural inspiration from the Mediterranean and surrounding rustic desert scape. The local inventory includes custom estates on large lots, modern penthouses, and private condominiums.
