We are thrilled to announce 3 brand new custom homes we are building in the thriving subdivision of Legacy Mesa. Located in the beautiful neighborhood of Northgrove in NE Mesa, this intimate subdivision is superbly located between East McKellips Rd, East Brown Rd and North Val Vista Rd.

Long known as the premier address in Mesa, this NE Mesa community boasts top access to the very best of Mesa. With direct access to Mesa's best dining, shopping and entertainment as well as excellent schools and parks, it is no wonder NE Mesa is always ranked #1 for livability in Mesa.


We are thrilled to announce that our stunning Legacy Cove development is now sold out. This beautiful community is a fine example of the quality Sonora West brings to homebuilding in the Scottsdale area.

Nestled in the highly desired region of northeast Scottsdale with views of the McDowell Mountain Preserves, sits an intimate 19-lot gated community with a Santa Barbara style that is unique to the area.

Available in five floor plans, these semi-custom homes boast open living spaces paired with a cozy outdoor living style. The homes at Legacy Cove range from a single story 2,915 square foot plan to a larger two-story 4,874 square foot plan. With flexible options available like the 515 square foot casita, the homes at Legacy Cove can be designed to suit your lifestyle.


We are excited to announce the launch of our brand new project, The Sycamore at Arcadia! This exclusive private gated community by Sonora West Development is located at 37 Street and Campbell, on the West side of the ultra-popular Arcadia neighborhood. The Sycamore has quickly become a tremendous success for Sonora West Development, with 6 of the 16 custom homes sold in our first few months of release.

Boasting modern farmhouse architecture from renowned luxury residential architects Drewitt Works, The Sycamore is a modern twist on the American classic farmhouse. Stunning design and interiors and the very best of Central Phoenix sits just outside your private community, with some of Phoenix's finest culinary offerings only a short walk away. This unique gated community offers a fantastic opportunity to live in one of Phoenix's premier areas. 

Sonora West builds amazing homes but doesn’t break your bank. Scott and his team find a way to get the job done no matter what the obstacles become. Scott’s eye for home building is the best in the business. We were blown away at his vision and unique style. Sonora West knew we had a budget and never let us get out of the box. We got our dream home, stayed in budget, and our house was done before our due date. Credit to the internal team from finance, design, and decorating as they worked around the clock and we’re always available for questions. Wondered if they slept sometimes! Not sure you will find the quality home and all the other things anywhere else. Nice job guys!
