Discovery Trails by Woodside Homes
Discovery Trails was developed by the Woodside Homes, one of the top 50 builders in the entire country. The community consists of 139 homes and is located North of McDowell Mountain Ranch Road and South of Paradise Lane. Its location is popular because of its close proximity to the community pool, spa and tennis courts, the community schools, the Aquatic Center and the Library.
There were seven different models ranging in size from 1,088 square feet to 2232 square feet. Three of them are popular great room plans. In November of 1997, which is the date of the earliest builder price list that I have in my files, the price for the 1502 square foot Catalina model was $161,290. At present, prices range from the low $200,000’s to almost $400,000 with the highest values going to larger homes with the most attractive settings and view.
Woodside Homes also built Discovery Canyon in McDowell Mountain Ranch. This is a sister community to Discovery Trails and utilized many of the same floor plans. It is located just off 104th Street behind the Desert Canyon school complex.
They were also responsible for another Ranch community, Panorama Point, which has somewhat larger homes which begin at 1548 square feet and go up to 2711 square feet.
