Property description

Our ground floor unit is bright and spacious. The condo complex is beautifully landscaped with native plants, some always in fragrant bloom. Guests enjoy two clubhouses, each with an outdoor heated pool and hot tub, complete office and WiFi access, a complete exercise room, and party facilities. The tennis court and barbecue area complete a flawlessly maintained and spotless facility.

The Catalina foothills, northeast of Tucson, offer beautiful and private accommodations with easy accessibility to most of the valley in less than 30 minutes. This impeccably maintained condo complex backs up to national forest at the mouth of a spectacular canyon filled with Saguaro cactus. The close by trailhead offers a chance to hike in a pristine part of the high Sonoran desert. The neighborhood roads are steep and curvy with little traffic. The temperature dips at night and following renowned sunsets, the sky becomes bejeweled. Below, the valley sparkles under a blanket of lights. Top 100 golf is available a quarter mile away at two Tom Fazio gems.

The most beautiful location: Tucson is a premier winter destination. The Catalina foothills had the first foothill homes in Tucson because of the elevation and stunning beauty coupled with a breathtaking view of the valley and city lights. There are very few roads that go this high and close to the mountains. There are no other Tucson condo complexes in such a setting, only expensive private homes.

This golf on the bucket list: World famous winter golf in Tucson is even better than it looks on TV. Memories of certain shots, certain moments in the desert sun, will last forever. Great golf from city municipal to many semi-private to renowned resorts is available. At a resort only a quarter mile from here, are two Tom Fazio gems, the Canyon course and the Mountain course. These are both ranked every year in the top 100 courses open to the public nationally. The proximity can mean big savings in green fees. Details, course descriptions and phone numbers, available at condo.

A nice daytime walk, less guilt at supper: There are some good restaurants within a few miles. This condo complex location, however, offers a great drive into the valley down Craycroft which becomes a major avenue once it exits the foothills. You can peel off on main arteries to the University, downtown and other points west or continue straight to South side. Here, most intersections have at least two Mexican restaurants. Most would agree, Tucson has the best Mexican food in the US. It's the only place you can order carne seca.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We live in Flagstaff, Arizona, and wanted to have a place in Tucson since we first met there while attending the University of Arizona in the 70's. This area in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains is our favorite!

Why the Owner Chose Ventana Canyon:
This complex is nestled in the foothills along with multi-million dollar homes. There was no other area in Tucson with such beautiful close up views of the Catalinas, in our opinion. It is so quiet and peaceful, away from the traffic. Driving into town is so easy and a beautiful drive.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love hiking and being able to access the trail from our condo is a real plus! The weather during the winter in Tucson can't be beat. The heated pool, hot tub, and gym sold us on this spectacular condo complex. Also, the proximity to Lowe's Ventana Canyon resort (within a half mile or less) is also a draw as we can just walk to go eat a wonderful meal at one of their restaurants. Just down the road at Sunrise and Kolb are more restaurants, a drugstore, grocery store, an art museum, and more!
