Pinnacle Development Group Properties and Projects : Built with imagination, managed with distinction.

< back to Projects & Properties Menu

Estancia is the glittering crown jewel in Pinnacle Development Group’s already impressive portfolio of premier-quality properties and developments. It has become the standard by which all other private, upscale, master-planned golf communities are judged, not only because of its unsurpassed scenic beauty, but because of its spectacular commercial success as well. Indeed, many companies have paid Pinnacle Development Group the ultimate compliment by trying to duplicate Estancia’s triumphant achievement, though none have been able to re-create the unique magic of this outstanding property.

Estancia was touched by fortune from the very beginning. In 1990, Pinnacle Development Group was able to acquire a rare prime land holding of 640 acres on the northern slope of Pinnacle Peak. Blessed by breathtaking views and a natural, pristine Sonoran Desert landscape, Estancia became the perfect setting for an environmentally sensitive, prestige community. Through farsighted planning and skillful management, Pinnacle Development Group took full advantage of this one-of-a-kind property, creating 223 spectacular custom homesites and 39 sprawling villas.

The centerpiece of Estancia is its exclusive private golf club with its 37,000-square-foot European-style clubhouse and Tom Fazio-designed golf course, chosen by Golf Digest as “Best New Private Course of 1996.” This magnificent course continues to be rated as one of the top 100 in the country.

Estancia was created in the right place, at the right time, and Pinnacle Development Group was able to maximize its tremendous value by assembling a dynamic development team and implementing, promoting and selling this preeminent residential community at the top of the market. It set the benchmark for high-end developments in the area, and remains without equal today.
