Scottsdale Shadows Overview

Many people assume that Scottsdale Shadows is an age-restricted 55+ retirement community, but it actually is NOT age restricted, so residents of any age, including children, are allowed to live in the community. Even though Scottsdale Shadows is NOT age restricted, it’s still a “senior favorite.”

Scottsdale Shadows offers seniors and non-seniors a great maintenance-free condominium lifestyle in a secure, gated and scenic environment of 13 six-story and seven-story buildings. The location is ideal – just a couple minutes from Scottsdale Fashion Square and Downtown “Old” Scottsdale. The community even provides residents and guests with free shuttle bus service to area shopping and medical facilities three times per week.

Some of the views from the higher-level balconies are stunning, and the lower level units often have beautiful views of the lush green grounds.

The condos are very affordable, especially by “Scottsdale” standards, making this a great option for anybody looking for a condo with lots of activities and amenities in the Scottsdale area.

One, two and three bedrooms units are available, ranging anywhere from 784 to 2,400 sq.ft.

Only two of the 13 buildings offer in-unit laundry. The other 11 buildings have laundry rooms located on the 2nd and 5th floors.

Most of the buildings don’t allow pets of any kind, and only two of the buildings allow dogs.

Since Scottsdale Shadows was built from 1974 – 1984, many units might need some updating to bring them to the standards of today’s buyers, but many of the units have already been remodeled, so you can find nice updated kitchens, bathrooms, and more open floorplans in the newly remodeled units.

Scottsdale Shadows Golf

Scottsdale Shadows is surrounded by a 9-hole executive length golf course that is strictly for residents and guests. There is no extra fee for golfing and there are no “tee times.” Just go out and play to your heart’s desire.
