Spotlight on: Santa Catalina

Posted 06/08/2016

At nearly 10,000 feet, Mount Lemmon is Tucson’s second highest point. Snowfall packs the summit in the winter and lush, desert flora and fauna sweep across the mountain’s foothills year-round. No wonder Tucsonans consider this towering peak the flagship of the surrounding Santa Catalina Mountains.

We couldn’t agree more – which is one of the reasons we’ve located our two newest Maracay Homes Tucson-area neighborhoods – The Ranches and Territory at Santa Catalina – against the backdrop of the majestic mountain, itself.

Located in the Tanque Verde region just northeast of Tucson and separated by approximately two miles, the two Maracay neighborhoods offer 34 homes, collectively, and feature ranch-style entrances, oversized homesites and immediate access to Mount Lemmon – the southernmost ski destination in the United States. Not to mention, the homes within the Territory have been designed to meet LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

While there’s no question the desert-mountain views are stunning from all angles, a quick look inside the homes themselves might be enough to completely take your breath away. Crafted to keep pace with current lifestyle trends and Arizona homebuyer’s preferences, the homes offer numerous FlexDesign® options, like extended kitchen nooks and master bedrooms, bay windows, walk-in showers, bonus rooms, generation suites or casitas and much more, depending on the plan. Of course, all of the homes are Energy Star® certified and include Maracay Homes’ LivingSmart® program for high performance and cost efficiency.   

Homebuyers can choose between four distinct, single-level FlexDesign® floor plans ranging from 2,607 to 3,412 square feet. The Ranches at Santa Catalina, located just over one-mile north of Catalina Highway on Harrison Road, offers 24 spacious 1/2- to 3/4-acre homesites. Meanwhile, Territory at Santa Catalina, located less than a half-mile south of Snyder Road on Bonanza Avenue, features 10 expansive homesites, each covering more than 3/4 of an acre.
