In Tucson’s formative years, when farming and mining dominated the draw for new residents, Marana was a rural farmland featuring acres of crops, including cotton (one of the “Five C’s of Arizona, the other 4 being “Cattle, Citrus, Climate, and Copper.”) Modern Marana is now considered one of Tucson’s elite and attractive suburbs. Granted, there is still plenty of acreage dominated by agriculture and properties offer a rural lifestyle including gardening, livestock and horse facilities.
For homebuyers who are looking to find their home on a larger property with wide views and room to roam, Marana would be a great choice. It feels rural but offers all the amenities of the city.
The newer part of Marana, east of I-10 boasts the gorgeous Dove Mountain master planned community, nestled into the rolling purple Tortollita Mountains. The upscale properties in the impeccably planned community are some of the most sumptuous in the entire Tucson area. The community is bound together by the Country Club which includes a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course that hosts the annual WGC Accenture Match Play Championship. Dove Mountain Country Club amenities include several developed parks, natural trails, and of course some of the best golf on the planet. The world-class Ritz-Carlton Resort, Spa, and Residences, is the jewel in the crown of this beautiful area.
Nestled perfectly into the hillsides and gentle slopes of the Tortolita Mountains, find the gem of Marana, the Dove Mountain master-panned community. This community is set apart by its exclusivity, and upscale features.
The new, gorgeous Ritz-Carlton Resort is one of Tucson’s finest resort properties. This incredible destination lies in the middle of stunning high desert featuring mature saguaros, and abundant wildlife.
Hiking and natural parks and resources are all a part of the plan at Dove Mountain. The development includes three parks as well as ten desert hiking trails, which vary in difficulty from novice to challenging.
Dove Mountain residents, as well as resort guests, will find excellent shopping close by for both necessities as well as upscale retail. There are even high-end rental communities for short or long term lease. Schools in the area are among the best in town and access to I-10 is easy.
