CASA BLANCA Townhomes in Paradise Valley Arizona

Casa Blanca homes in Paradise Valley Arizona. Today while work as a North Scottsdale REALTOR I’ve discovered a Paradise Valley jewel the Casa blanca townhomes at 5101 N CASA BLANCA Drive Paradise Valley Arizona 85253. I went south on Scottsdale Road then turned right on E Jackrabbit RD and then left on N Casa Blanca Dr. Just past Casa Blanca Estates I arrived 5101 N CASA BLANCA Drive.

What I liked about CASA BLANCA Townhomes is the charming 1930’s-40’s Old Hollywood feel and its close proximity to the Camelback mountain. I also like how the units seem to have that Moroccan accents and cute patios. It’s different and eclectic.

“Casa Blanca Inn Honeymoon Suite is an early Arizona resort frequented by Hollywood’s elite, think Marilyn Monroe frequented Casa Blanca, complete with its own landing strip for private aircraft, a movie star could easily slip in and back out.

Originally the home of the Donald Kellogg family and designed/built by R.T. “Bob” Evans in the 1920s, the Casa Blanca Inn was used by the Warner Borg company in the late 1940s as a corporate retreat, complete with its own landing strip. It became the Casa Blanca Inn and opened to the public circa the early 1950s and continued to operate as a resort through the 1970s. It was located near Chaparral road and several blocks west of Scottsdale road.

Casa Blanca Airport was apparently built at some point between 1945-48, as it was not depicted on the 1945 Phoenix Sectional Chart (courtesy of John Voss). The earliest reference to the Casa Blanca Airport which has been located is the 1948 USAF Phoenix Urban Area Chart (courtesy of Scott O’Donnell), which depicted it as having a single northwest/southeast runway”. via: activerain.com

    Ok..Well a relative of mine has lived there for 10+ years. It is a very nice place…but many older people leave there and think because it is gated that it is completely safe. Lock your doors…Use your alarms..There have been quite a few break-ins. I just felt I needed to post this because people get a false sense of security with a gate.
