MacDonald Ranch Real Estate

The MacDonald Ranch master-planned community is a favored place to live, carved into the beautiful McCullough Mountains foothills of Henderson, Nevada, in the southeast corner of the Las Vegas Valley.

This upscale private oasis is hidden from the road behind lush foliage and lavishly finished doors. It was created for those seeking an extravagant dream home. The custom homes in this community are part of the mountain while having stunning views of the Vegas Valley and mountain ranges.

This safe and upscale community always receives high ratings from residents, and is a must-see option for anyone seeking a home in Henderson. The master-planned community is made up of several smaller neighborhoods and subdivisions that offer a variety of different home types and lifestyles.

In the early 1970s, the MacDonald Family began buying property in the Las Vegas Valley. By 1977 they had become the third largest private landowners in the Valley, behind Howard Hughes and the Greenspuns.

MacDonald Ranch was a dream of developer Rich MacDonald. It sprawls across a 3,200-acre contiguous site between Eastern Avenue and Gibson Street. It was divided into four villages, which later became the communities we know today.

  • Village I was sold to Del Webb and became Sun City MacDonald Ranch.
  • Village II became Sunridge at MacDonald Ranch, developed as a mid-priced family community containing numerous top-level schools.
  • Village III became MacDonald Highlands, a guard-gated luxury community housing the DragonRidge Golf Course.
  • Village IV was sold and built out as The Canyons at MacDonald Ranch.

MacDonald Ranch Communities

MacDonald Ranch is home to a range of desirable community options, from guard-gated to family-friendly to age-restricted. These are:

These communities were made possible by Rich and Claire MacDonald, who received many awards for developing office parks and commercial centers in the area.

Unlike most developers, Rich MacDonald is very involved and still lives in MacDonald Highlands. He is always the first one to be aware of an issue and is quick to deal with them, believing on-site problem solving to be a benefit to all of his residents.

MacDonald Highlands

MacDonald Highlands is a premium guard-gated sub-community overlooking the valley. Featuring large, luxury homes and estates with countless celebrity residents, including famed nightclub DJ Steve Aoki. This neighborhood is built around the private DragonRidge Country Club and golf course.

DragonRidge Country Club is a breathtaking 18-hole championship golf course with an impressive clubhouse and event facility. It is surrounded by over 170 acres of rolling hills overlooking the Las Vegas skyline.

Designed by distinguished golf course architects Jay Morrish and David Druzisky, this course presents an innovative use of natural hillsides and canyons with a topography that features wide fairways, large greens and over 60,000 square feet of practice facilities. The course includes an all grass driving range, a short game area with two practice sand bunkers, and two bent grass putting greens.

Two popular onsite restaurants with eclectic seasonal menus feature both elegant and casual cuisine, with indoor and outdoor lounge areas, swimming pool, snack bar, and golf shop. The main ballroom and party venues boast some of the best city views in the valley.

MacDonald Highlands is a Gold Winner of the Best Master Planned Community category in the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Best of Las Vegas Awards for 2021, while the DragonRidge Country Club is a Bronze Winner in the Best Place to Get Married category.

Sun City MacDonald Ranch

Sun City MacDonald Ranch is a 55+ community with an estimated 2,500 single-family homes and villas spread across 564 acres in the upscale MacDonald Ranch master-planned community. This neighborhood is conveniently adjacent to the I-215 beltway, making it a short drive from popular destinations including the Harry Reid International Airport and the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.

Sun City MacDonald Ranch is smaller and more intimate than Sun City Anthem or Sun City Summerlin, and this cozy feel is what draws many of its residents. However, the reduced size doesn’t mean a lack of amenities. The Homeowner’s Association is managed by a resident, seven-member Board of Directors who are elected by homeowners. The HOA board oversees the operation of all community facilities, including the community center, golf course, restaurant, fitness center, swimming pool, tennis, pickleball and bocce courts, and various neighborhood hiking trails.

At the heart of the community is the 36,000 square-foot Desert Willow Clubhouse, loaded with impressive amenities. This clubhouse is home to a fitness center, aerobics and dance studio, grand ballroom with a stage, several meeting rooms, hobby and craft studios, multi-purpose studio, a billiards room, and a library.

Outside the clubhouse is an outdoor lap pool and spa, three lighted tennis courts, and four bocce ball courts. If you prefer to explore, there are over nine miles of walking and biking trails that wind through Sun City and the surrounding MacDonald Ranch community.
