The Boulders community rests on the border of Scottsdale and Carefree – part of the community is in Scottsdale and the other part is in Carefree. The Boulders is also the name of the luxury Waldorf Astoria resort that is located within this gated community.
The Boulders caters to the discriminating buyer and offers many lifestyle choices. The elegant properties blend with dramatic scenery featuring magnificent boulder outcroppings. Residents can choose homes for sale from villas to luxury estates; all built with southwestern architecture in mind. Twelve unique communities are arranged around the two top-rated golf courses, affording beautiful views of the golf course or the mountains from most home sites. Over half of the land in the Boulders will always remain natural area open space.
