Rural feel and not so rural, Arcadia homes are just minutes from shopping and dining from the Biltmore Fashion Park (24th Street & Camelback, Phoenix) or the Scottsdale Fashion Square (Scottsdale Road & Camelback, Scottsdale). A short drive will get you to downtown Phoenix, Old Town Scottsdale, or to Phoenix Sky Harbor’s International Airport in about 15 minutes. Arcadia is central to all things wonderful!
