McCormick Ranch pocket listings


When I think of McCormick Ranch, I think of the mature landscaping, and extensive walking trails that connect to the main Greenbelt, or Camelback Walk. The Playa del Sur subdivision is a Camelback Walk community and has been one of the most sought-after but stable McCormick Ranch neighborhoods over the past 10 years.

What’s unique to Playa del Sur is its proximity to Camelback Walk.  All of the quiet culdesacs from San Marcos Drive offer direct access to the greenbelt. San Marcos Drive is a neighborhood traffic-only street, keeping it a very quiet and safe part of The Ranch, almost as if you didn’t know it was there unless you stumbled upon it. A-rated Cochise Elementary, Mountain View Park, and Marguerite and Angela Lakes are an easy walk away, as are Village Roastery, Grassroots, Butter’s and other great neighborhood favorites. The street is lined with mature landscaping, and a mix of well-kept original homes and fantastic, upscale remodels.

I am happy to announce we have 3 homes for sale in this exclusive neighborhood, all on excellent lots and in pristine condition.  All 3 will be marketed on the MLS in time for showings over Labor Day Weekend.
