Homes For Sale In Or Near McCormick Ranch Scottsdale
McCormick Ranch, with an estimated population of 24,000 people, is one of the largest master- planned community developments in the country. In 1969 the land was transformed from 4,235 acres of barren desert into a world-renowned, mixed-use community.
McCormick Ranch was started in 1942 by Merle Chaney and sold to the McCormick’s in the mid-40’s. It was the last large ranch located in the City of Scottsdale.
Anne McCormick was attracted to the area because of the dry climate. The original purchase consisted of 160 plus acres purchased primarily as a winter home for the McCormicks. They had maintained other homes in Quebec, Canada and in Pleasantville, New York, as well as a villa on the Riviera, a farm in Barrington, IL and an apartment in Chicago.
Fowler McCormick was the grandson of Cyrus McCormick, who invented the reaper, on the paternal side and John Rockefeller on the maternal side. Fowler worked himself up from a job in the foundry to the President and Chairman of the Board of International Harvester.
