If your vision of paradise doesn’t depend on the ocean to paint its picture, you may discover the pearls of luxury nestled in the Foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains (Tucson, AZ) represent just that – your wildest dream of luxury living.
Just picture Tucson luxury real estate and here is what you’ll see:
Camouflaged during the day in the rolling green and brown hills, multi-million dollar homes turn dramatically dark in the crimson sunsets and cool desert nights.
Some of the luxury homes lie hidden at the end of private roads; others are tucked away in intimate gated communities, while the rest are remote from the masses by virtue of being high in the winding hills.
What these luxury Tucson homes have in common – whether built a decade ago or yesterday – is a unique story. These custom built estates run across a broad array of styles: Contemporary, Grand European, Santa Fe, Old World Traditional, Tuscan and Mediterranean.
Tucson custom homes combine the natural elements of stone, block, metal, and stucco to create a graceful compatibility with the surrounding rock formation and desert landscape.
Home interiors offer a breathtaking combination of technical sophistication and luxurious simplicity as the dessert sun bathes gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and spacious living areas with flagstone floors.

All the while, panoramic views of the marvelous desert flow into almost every room in the house.
Most of these Tucson luxury estates didn’t exist until recently. Only a few decades ago, the Catalina Foothills area was treasured by hunters seeking plentiful white tail deer, quail and mule deer.
Now it all has changed.
There were only twenty eight million dollar plus homes in total sold in the Catalina Foothills, Tucson, AZ prior to the year 2000.

While close to 90% of the North Tucson luxury homes sold are in $1,000,000 – $1,999,999 price range, about 30% of active listings have an asking price of $2,000,000 or more.
The highest price tag of $22,000,000 is for “The 22nd Century” Campbell Cliffs Estate.
This amazing Tucson estate boasts every luxury and technology innovation you could ever conceive of… it even comes with a 602-page owner’s manual.
All this clearly points to a noticeable trend: Tucson’s Catalina Foothills area is fast becoming a neighborhood of dreams.
Great climate, magnificent views, fresh air, proximity to nature, yet easy access to shopping areas and restaurants attracts both Tucsonans and out-of-state buyers.
Unsurprisingly, the 2007 Street of Dreams show was hosted in Tucson. The show has featured 8 spectacular homes nestled among the rock and soaring Saguaro cacti of the Sonoran desert.
Custom built, fully furnished and accessorized, they represent the collective work of top notch architects, builders and interior designers. Ranging from 4,000 to 7,500 square feet and priced from $2 million to over $4 million, on one of the America’s best new golf courses, Stone Canyon development extends the luxury trend started in the Catalina Foothills.
