Some of the most popular choices for second home buyers in the Tucson Foothills lie within our three gated golf course communities.
La Paloma, Ventana Country Club and to a lesser extent Skyline CC, offer a variety of homes that are particularly well suited to the many second home buyers who venture this way come winter.
The attraction of these communities is the convenience of location, services, amenities and the security they offer. Most have community pools and spas that are heated throughout the year. Club facilities, walking trails and the golf course are right at your back door, restaurants and shopping are a stone's throw, and all are 24 hour guard-gated for security and privacy. The homes are low maintenance on smaller lots, and street-side landscape maintenance is usually included in the HOA fee.
They range in size from about 1500 to 3000 sf, though I've found that most people's needs fall somewhere in the 2000 to 2500 sf range.
At that size they usually have 3 bedrooms, or 2 and a den, 2-3 baths, and kitchen, living and dining areas combined into an open great room. Out back there's usually a covered patio and a nice easy care yard for dining, daydreaming and catching a few rays. And by far, the scarcest and most popular are those with views of the golf course and mountains, which of course means they sell the quickest and for more money.
As a rule, these 2nd home homes range in price from about $350,000 to $850,000.
But here's the tricky part if you're searching for them online.
Within the communities of La Paloma, Ventana and Skyline there are a number of different subdivisions where the homes are located, each with it's own subdivision name, HOA, CC&R's, etc.
So if you search La Paloma as a subdivision, you may not find the homes located in - Ridge 4, Vista Serena, Paloma Ridge, Villages 2&4 At Villages Of La Paloma, Paloma Del Sol, etc, etc, - all of which are subdivisions within La Paloma. Same applies to Ventana and Skyline. What to do?
Ta-Da. I have a search page on my web site Search by Subdivision
There you'll find a link to a one-click search for Ventana, La Paloma or Skyline, and many other communities and subdivisions within the Foothills, that will return everything, at all prices, currently for sale within each of those communities or subdivisions, or whatever you want to call them. And yes for simplicity on my web site, I cheated a little bit by calling them all subdivisions, rather than indicating this one's a community, and this one's a subdivision, and this one's a ...
