The town of Fountain Hills enjoys panoramic scenic views due to the fact that it is surrounded on 4 sides by natural boundaries: McDowell Mountain Regional Park in the north, the majestic McDowell Mountain Range in the west, the Salt River Maricopa Pima Indian Reservation in the south, the Fort McDowell Indian Community, the Verde River and Tonto National Forest in the east. These natural boundaries also provide an abundance of outdoor recreation activities as well as protection from over-development and sprawl from the larger neighboring metro areas. This is what gives residents of Fountain Hills the small-town feel that they enjoy.
Within the town of Fountain Hills, located on the south side of Shea Boulevard between Fountain Hills Boulevard and Saguaro Boulevard, is the guard-gated community of FireRock. FireRock sits on 800 acres with 379 custom home sites parceled on half-acre to 2-acre lots. Thanks to an abundance of sloping hills throughout the community, almost every home for sale in Firerock has breath-taking mountain views. There are resale custom homes and vacant custom lots available for sale in the neighborhood, as well as the Balera townhomes, which range from 1,800 to 2,700 square feet, and were built between 2005 and 2008.
