Vermillion Cliffs

Vermillion Cliffs was developed by Camelot Homes and consists of 73 elegant and distinctive properties. In 1997, the date of the earliest builder information that I have in my files, pricing began at $264,900 for the #919 plan and went as high as $340,900 for the two story #933 plan.

There were seven different models ranging in size from 2,308 square feet to 3,971 square feet. Each model was offered in three different exterior “elevations” and also had a number of customizable exterior options which gave the community a more varied and attractive look.

This lovely community is located at the foothills of the Mountain Preserve and nestled between Trovas to the south and Armonico to the north. The community recreation center with a heated pool, spa, tennis courts, volleyball court and basketball court are located just a couple of blocks away. It offers wonderful accessibility via the adjacent trail system, and marvelous mountain views.

This page contains a number of maps that may be helpful in understanding more about the Vermillion Cliffs Community.

The map on the top left shows where in McDowell Mountain Ranch the community is located. Just to the right of that is an aerial view provided by the digital map center of the city of Scottsdale which should provide you with an interesting perspective on the community. The last two are an actual street map and the builder’s original site plan. The latter often contain interesting information like the relative premiums that we placed on the lots at the time they were originally offered for purchase.
