Property description

This is a private home near the Coronado National Forest Wilderness Area. This 4,000 square foot contemporary Santa Fe style home is beautifully situated on the one of the highest and most scenic improved parcels in the northwest Catalina Foothills at the base of Mount Lemmon. 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, with multiple porches and decks with some of the best views of the Tucson valley.

This home is nestled into a saguaro studded hillside at an elevation of 3,200’ (Downtown Tucson is about 2,350’). It is one of the highest estates in the northwest foothills of Tucson and the view must be seen to be believed. During the day, you can see the mountains on the Mexican border (68 miles away) and at night, the sea of lights of metro Tucson are below you. Behind the home is designated wilderness area filled with wildlife and improved hiking trails off of Pima Canyon. We have personally seen the following birds and animals in our yard: giant owl; giant hawk, bobcat, deer, javelina, coyote, humming bird, rabit and various other species. The daytime temperatures in the summer are about 4 degrees less than downtown because of our elevation and the nighttime temperatures in the winter run at least 5 degrees warmer because we are off of the valley floor.

It is only minutes away from many activities:
-Golf at Arizona National (formerly the Raven) in 10 minutes, Ventana Canyon in 25 minutes, and many more great golf courses within 30 minutes.
-Grocery shopping, restaurants, drug stores, and virtually everything you might need to purchase on a day to day basis are within 8 minutes.
-La Encantada, Tucson's premier dining and shopping venue, is 5 minutes away.
-St Phillips Plaza, another exclusive shopping and dining location, is about 10 minutes away.
-Tucson Mall is about 10 minutes away.
-University of Arizona is about 20 minutes
-Downtown Tucson is about 25 minutes

The Tucson Gem & Mineral show is the world's largest with more gems, minerals, and jewelry than you could imagine and is a must see event.

The Tucson Bead Show is bead makers, jewelry artisans, fashion designers, fabric artists, lapidary studios, emerging artists and wholesale trade suppliers –showcasing their newest creations –artistic beads, hand-printed textiles, and fine gemstones.

The Precidio of Tubac is world renown for its talented and famous artists and is a worthwhile day trip.

 

Owner info

About the owner: I am a computer engineer who has traveled and lived around the world but have chosen to settle in Tucson due to its temperate climates, spectacular scenery, and abundant wildlife.

Why the Owner Chose Catalina Foothills:
