El Mirador at Superstition Mountains

At the foot of the world famous Superstition Mountain Wilderness and only 35 minutes east of Phoenix sits Gold Canyon, Arizona, a lush, upscale desert community that is truly unparalleled. Gold Canyon's history is as enduring as it is fascinating. Located in the high Sonoran Desert, the deep canyons and stunning vistas have provided a colorful backdrop for a heritage which echoes back to the 15th century when Spanish Conquistadors traveled the region looking for the fabled Seven Cities of Cibola. Alive with historical place names such as Geronimo Head, Peralta Canyon and Dutchman's Trail, the Superstition Mountains have cultivated a history which forever intertwines fact with fiction—truth with myth.

More recent history began with the master planning of a resort community to surround the beautiful Gold Canyon Golf Resort. El Mirador, Spanish for "View Point," is a private 47 lot custom, gated, natural desert community, and it is widely regarded as the premier address in all of Gold Canyon. Homesites range in size from a half to over two and a half acres.

The site was an assemblage of five properties totaling 60 hillside acres and was the last significant land parcel available for development in Gold Canyon. The property is stunningly located, surrounded on one side by unspoiled federal land, on two sides by, and overlooking, Superstition Mountain as well as 36 holes of a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course. The panoramic views of El Mirador's terraced lots are of the dramatic west face of the Superstition Mountains with the peak of Silly Mountain in the distance.

El Mirador was designed to incorporate every nuance of the natural environment with every lot backing up to only the beautiful Sonoran Desert—no El Mirador lot backs up to any other El Mirador lot! A quick overview of the design will show the attention to detail that went into the planning of each individual lot. The quality of the community is assured by a planned, and very restrictive, Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs.)

To date, 31 lots have been sold. Accredited Investors, L.L.C. provided the equity capital to finish the project by building exclusive, multimillion dollar homes on the most premium lots perched upon the highest point of the mountain.
