Catalina Foothills (Tucson) Majestic Views, Elevator, Twin 68-Foot Balconies

It’s nestled high on a ridge in the prestigious Alta Vista neighborhood of the Catalina Foothills. Present-day Alta Vista was some the most prized Foothills land, purchased by the late billionaire, Howard Hughes, in the 1950s.

This two-story, nearly 4,000 sq ft custom home is located in a quiet cul-de-sac that boasts both privacy and tranquility. Observe your closest neighbors, soaring Red-tailed Hawks and chattering Gambel’s Quail from the comfort of your private swim spa.

Twin 68-foot balconies afford you some of the most stunning views in Tucson, including telescopic Downtown views…and views of three mountain ranges: Santa Catalina, Tucson and Baboquivari. You’ll enjoy views as far as 73 miles, all the way to Baboquivari Peak, the sacred, ancestral homeland of the Tohono O’odham tribe.

There’s plenty of splendor and solitude in the gated flagstone courtyard, and of course…more captivating views. And you are just minutes from prime locations, including: Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, Ventana Canyon Golf and Racquet Club, Ventana Village, and the La Encantada Mall: the center of the most upscale shopping in Southern Arizona.

The living area is resplendent with 12-foot high ceilings, elegant hardwood floors and wall windows. You can relish your home theater with built-in, directional speakers or just observe the majestic sunsets with a sip of Chardonnay on the sofa.

The spacious living area melds seamlessly into the 68 foot balcony — perfect for entertaining your guests or just enjoying a quiet evening.
