Goldfield Ranch was originally going to be called Fountain Hills 2. But that plan was short lived as the Orme Dam project got defeated by the Ft. McDowell Indian Nation. The plan included the idea to flood Verde River and Ft. McDowell Indian Nation to create the Orme Lake. But since the approval of the Native Americans living there was not received, Goldfield Ranch’s foundation was built where it stands today.
The neighborhood was originally plotted into 40 acre lots but was later sold off in parcels and subdivided down to a minimum of 5 acres. The first construction started around 1984 and since then the area has seen urban style development. These were slow at the start but picked up pace later. Goldfield Ranch is termed as one of the Valley’s “Hidden Gems” because of its ideal location. Bordered by Tonto National Forest and the Fort McDowell Indian Reservation, it is the prime location for you if you want to live in a natural desert yet want to have access to urban city amenities.
Goldfield Ranch is in close proximity to Saguaro Lake, Sky Harbor, Scottsdale and the Mayo Clinic. Almost everything is within a 30-40 min drive.
