Create An Original Western Retreat at Sterling Ranch
Talking Rock, a luxury golf community in Prescott, Arizona, was actually a ranch in its previous life. Cattle roamed the rugged landscape, appreciating the shade the trees provided and no doubt loving the mild climate they were fortunate enough to enjoy all year long.
Sterling Ranch, a neighborhood offering acreage within Talking Rock, keeps that ranching spirit alive. Since it was introduced a few years ago, offering expansive homesites of 2.5, 5 and 10 acres — space virtually unheard of within luxury communities — it has matured, quite a bit.
Beyond the introduction of basic infrastructure and the completion of the neighborhood’s front entry and monument, Sterling Ranch has become home to a number of Talking Rock residents who desired space, an opportunity to be creative and the chance to balance privacy and solitude with a community that values hospitality and social connection. By working with Prescott custom home builders, residents at Sterling Ranch have been able to create unique and exclusive retreats, some of which may include equestrian facilities, guest houses, workshops or artist studios.
With acreage, comes possibility.
But, as the neighborhood has matured, so has interest in it. Its coveted 5 and 10-acre homesites are going fast, and only a few remain, including a couple large parcels near an attractive amenity dubbed The Post.
As a charming gathering place set among homestead-style retreats, The Post allows neighbors and friends to come together and enjoy the best of what Sterling Ranch and Prescott have to offer — the environment. A vintage Airstream travel trailer houses coolers and, when the hatch is open, a ready-to-serve bar, while Adirondack chairs, a grill, firepits and decorative lighting set the mood for an evening spent outdoors, swapping stories and taking in the stars.
In the coming months, The Post will see additions that include a sales office, restroom facilities and a meeting room.
Of course, while those larger homesites are becoming a hot commodity, they’re not for everybody. That’s why Sterling Ranch also offers smaller parcels that still include considerable space and access to the community’s premium amenities.
When you’re used to living in urban homes that are squeezed into a fraction of an acre or less, the prospect of 2.5 acres can be so appealing! Since being released in 2020, the 2.5-acre parcels within Sterling Ranch have also been greeted with fanfare, however a few additional opportunities remain before the upcoming release of Upper Sterling Ranch — expected sometime next year.
The beauty of Sterling Ranch homesites, besides their actual beauty, is the opportunities they provide. They allow owners to work with preferred home builders in Prescott, Arizona to imagine a western retreat that blends the spirit of the land with possibilities of the space.
Sterling Ranch allows owners to create something truly original, as a part of a truly original neighborhood.
