The name “Arcadia” is rooted in ancient Greek history. It is a region and also part of its mythology. Arcadia was home to one of the Greek gods and symbolizes “unspoiled, harmonious wilderness.” Aptly named, Arcadia in Phoenix in the 85018 Zip Code, Arizona is truly in harmony with nature. There’s majestic Camelback Mountain views. Water weaving in and out from the Arizona Canal. And an abundance of fruit trees.
For those who prefer the lush quiet of upscale suburbia, Arcadia is one of Phoenix’s original swank neighborhoods, where right-there views of Camelback Mountain abound and mini-citrus orchards and carpets of soft grass dominate the acreage surrounding traditional sprawling ranch homes and contemporary custom estates. Luxurious mountainside mansions flaunt to-die-for city views, while a number of country club-type communities are nestled around championship golf courses. If you’re an equestrian, you’re guaranteed to appreciate the city’s numerous horse properties and communities, where bridle paths, corrals, hot walkers and mare motels dot the landscape. In these neighborhoods, it is not at all unusual to see a rider and horse out for an early morning Saturday stroll…we kid you not.
Charming, vibrant Arcadia also offers an up-and-coming shopping and dining district known for its upscale boutiques at Camelback Village Center, antiques shops and cocktail bars on nearby Gaslight Square, as well as trendy brewpubs, grills and lounges. The area offers access to both the Camelback Mountain summit and the Arizona Canal Trail, popular with walkers, runners and cyclists.
The Arcadia neighborhood also has the added value of being located in the most prime, central location. It’s adjacent to the western edge of Scottsdale, while also partially lying within Phoenix itself. Also, within minutes of Scottsdale Fashion Square, world-class shopping and dining.
