The Real Deal: Sterling Ranch According to Owners
Talking Rock, a private golf community in Prescott, Arizona, is one of those places where space is something that can actually be felt. Its location against protected state trust land in an area where the rugged landscape leads to mountain trails or lush valleys allows owners to feel an uncommon sense of freedom in an open, western expanse.
And at Sterling Ranch, a neighborhood within Talking Rock that offers homesites with acreage, that feeling is amplified.
With homesites that offer 2.5, 5, and 10 acres of space, Sterling Ranch serves up a wealth of possibilities for owners looking for some latitude on how they are able to use their piece of the west. That kind of space is novel.
Brian and Michelle Bennett, who purchased a parcel in 2019, are looking forward to the day that they can head east but still remain in the West, as they relocate from Southern California and experience a little more elbow room at Talking Rock. The couple is still in the design phase for the home they plan to build in Sterling Ranch, but the anticipation is growing for the new, open lifestyle they’ll experience within this luxury community.
They shared a few details with us about their Sterling Ranch journey.

One of the most appealing aspects of Sterling Ranch, besides the space it offers, is the opportunity it gives owners to connect — even with acreage. The neighborhood’s gathering place, The Post, provides a place for neighbors to get together, enjoy celebrations or simply take in a good bonfire under the stars.
Beyond The Post, those living within Sterling Ranch are still part of the larger Talking Rock community, which hosts its own slate of social gatherings and events all year long. From golf tournaments to fundraisers and live music events, Talking Rock has a way of bringing neighbors together while also giving them opportunities to connect with the landscape around them.
