The Catalina Foothills were first developed in the 1930’s to create a lifestyle that would attract wealthy families from the East Coast and Midwest. The plan was to develop large properties that would preserve the beauty of the Sonoran desert, and today the Catalina Foothills are an established and peaceful area that is home to 50,000 people. Foothills residents come from all over the U.S. and other countries, and make this a lively and cosmopolitan place. There is a wide range of home styles from Southwestern adobe to sleek and contemporary, and today there are homes in a wide range of prices. It’s quiet, has no major malls or industry or traffic, and is close to some of the best dining and upscale shopping in Tucson. We love this part of Tucson and would be delighted to share with you the beautiful living opportunities found in the Tucson Catalina Foothills.
