The only other location that can compete with the majestic up close and personal mountain vistas at MountainBrook Village are in tony North Scottsdale communities like The Boulders Resort or Windfield Place. And, you’ll find homes at MountainBrook Village cost almost half of what similar homes cost in the North Scottsdale communities!
The community was started in 1989 by the now defunct builder, UDC Homes. When UDC Homes filed for bankruptcy in the 1990’s, Shea Homes took over the community, and this was Shea’s first endevor into the 55+ active adult market.
Shea Homes later went on to perfect their 55+ active adult designs through their award-winning upscale Trilogy brand, which is now offered in several states. In Arizona, Shea’s Trilogy brand created Trilogy at Power Ranch, Trilogy at Vistancia, and Encanterra Country Club. In fact, the most popular floorplans at MountainBrook Village were also offered at Trilogy Power Ranch in Gilbert, the first Trilogy community in Arizona.

MountainBrook Village Real Estate
A total of 1,660 single family homes and attached “villas” were built here between 1989 – 2002. All homes are single-level, stucco style with tile roofs and include at least two bedrooms, two baths, and a two-car garage.
The single family homes range between 1,152 sq.ft. to a maximum of about 2,600 sq.ft.
The “villas” are attached in groups of two. They share a roof, but actually do not share any common walls. There is about six inches between the two structures and then the “dead space” was filled and stuccoed to create the look of one single structure. The HOA is slightly higher on the villas because the HOA takes care of the roof, building, and front yard maintenance. Villas are all two bedroom, two bath homes and range between 1,375 – 1,591 square feet.
MountainBrook Village Golf
The MountainBrook Golf Course winds through the Village, but is not owned by the MountainBrook Village HOA. MountainBrook residents are offered discounts, and annual memberships and 10-round punch cards are also available. Although the course is a public course, you’ll find that most of the people on the course are residents, especially during the busy winter months.
Right next door to MountainBrook Village, the Gold Canyon Resort also has two beautiful and very challenging golf courses: the Sidewinder course, and the very popular Dinosaur Mountain course. Gold Canyon Resort also offers annual passes, but unfortunately, no discounts are available for MountainBrook residents.
