A large part of the north area of Tucson is known as “the foothills”. Homes continue to move higher and higher onto the slopes of the Catalina Mountains which run east and west and tend to be the north boundary of the city. One of the major reason people move into the foothills is for the views. As homes and businesses spread throughout the Tucson valley, the night lights more and more resemble a jewel box and the storms which rumble through the area in our monsoon summers bring their share of nature at her most dramatic. At the same time, there is much to be said for the mountain views as well. Many foothills homes have telescopes aimed at the wildlife who make their homes on the peaks and in the crevasses that tower overhead.Based on this, Fairfield was a perfect answer as to what to do with the ridges that existed along the lower portion of the mountains. The goal of the Fairfield builder was to place homes along the ridges in such a way that almost every lot had a city or mountain view and some had both. The homes here are made up mainly of single family homes most of which were built between 1979 and 1992. Almost all of them are 1 story with 2 and 3 bedrooms and have from 1400 to 3400 square feet. The style of these homes includes Territorial, Santa Fe, Ranch, Contemporary, Patio Home and Mediterranean.The foothills area near Fairfield offers numerous markets, shops and restaurants and additionally it’s just a short drive into the city itself to the malls and major strip centers.

Mushrooms!! Did you ever go into your backyard one morning and find mushrooms (or toadstools) growing in your yard? That’s what happened in the southeast area of the Tucson Valley. Many Realtors can recall having to drive “all the way to the Vail area” to show some land.

The next day (or so it seemed) no school could hold the numbers of children who suddenly appeared.Homes sprang up along the luxurious green of the 18 hole challenging golf course. Others are located on the hillsides with beautiful views of the Rincon Mountains and the Catalina’s as well.The higher elevation than Tucson, brings a somewhat cooler feel to the air.

Basically it is made up of a group of subdivisions and streets that banded together to form a governing body to ensure that the area is maintained and not allowed to fall into disrepair. Sam Hughes is probably made up of perhaps more historic homes than you will find in most of the other Tucson communities. Due to the age of many of the homes, most owners wanted the area to continue to look as it did in its heyday. This has caused the Sam Hughes community to be in demand by people who love restoring older homes and people who just find a comfort in the settled look and feel of the area.So, who was this Sam Hughes guy? Well, he was born in Wales, Scotland and moved with his family to the US in 1837 when he was eight years old. He never had any formal schooling but when his parents died when he was still young, he made sure his eight brothers and sister were educated. He came to Tucson in 1858, married in 1863 and fathered a large family. In the 1870’s he helped incorporate Tucson and became an alderman on the first city council. In 1871 he helped to establish public education in the territory. One of the first subdivisions in Tucson named the new elementary school in its area after Sam Hughes in 1928 eleven years after his death.According to the Tucson MLS, Sam Hughes homes for sale are made up of a very wide variety of sizes, types, and prices.

One of the nice things about living in a golf course community is that you are never very far from the cool beauty of the greens and you often have other views as well. This is the case with Tucson National Country Club a gated golf resort located in Tucson’s northwest area. The views in the area include the beautiful west end of the Catalina Mountains which tower over 9,000 foot elevation.When the Omni hotel opened in 1986, residents were able to entertain family and clients in lovely and convenient surroundings. Over the years there have been many major golf tournaments held there.Several subdivisions are part of the Tucson National Country Club complex. There is a wide range of homes and townhomes here. Many have been built along the 27 hole golf course along with lovely condos. Tucson National is located in the Amphitheater School District.Shopping and entertainment is nearby as there are several shopping areas and Foothills Mall is just a few minutes drive. Markets, theaters and restaurants are in the immediate area.
- VAIL (Zip Code 85641)arrow
A new town … almost.When you live in the high desert, elevation counts especially during the summer. With this in mind, more and more people are looking to the southeast part of the valley at what used to be a tiny wide spot in the road known as Vail. Over 800 feet higher than Tucson, the Vail temperatures are cooler.The actual “center” of Vail is about 20 miles southeast of Tucson. Less than 15 years ago Vail was one of those places that was considered (if considered at all) as one of the ways to get to Colossal Cave. And, if you passed through from I-10 which is 2 miles to the south, you might want to stop by the little Catholic Church located in the “center of town” which is between the two Southern Pacific railroad tracks. In truth, both places have their place in the history of the area. If you turn off I-10 at exit 279 and go north on Colossal Cave Road (yes, it’s a real cave and you can visit), you will go through the town. Oops!! Don’t go too fast as you’ll be past before you know it. But don’t be fooled by what you see. Vail is a community that is growing by leaps and bounds. Faster than the schools can be built, homes in the Vail area are popping up like mushrooms. What is vacant land today may very well be a new subdivision within a few months. Just before crossing the first set of tracks, you will pass some of Vail’s businesses. It’s a great place to stop for a cold drink and a bite to eat or even enjoy a hearty breakfast or dinner. Great food!! And a 10 minute drive takes you to two large shopping centers with major supermarkets and all the other smaller stores you usually associate with a shopping center. Another supermarket is soon to be built even closer. Then on to St. Rita in the Desert which is on the east side of the road as you cross the first set of tracks. This tiny Catholic chapel was dedicated to a Japanese chemist named Jokichi Takamine in 1935 by his wife. He had converted to Catholicism after marrying Caroline Field who moved to Tucson after his death in 1922. The church had agreed with the family that there would never be any alterations to the chapel. More buildings have been added to the grounds as the need arose but the chapel is as it was when built. The goal was to offer services to the miners who brought their ore to the railroad siding in Vail. As you go on north, following the signs toward Colossal Cave, you will pass some of the many subdivisions that have been built in the past few years. And then you will come to some of the magnificent scenery that draws people to the area. The gigantic saguaros with their tenuous hold on the sides of rocky cliffs are an amazement to see. The deep canyons where javelina, deer and even occasional bear and cougar reign over the lesser animals of the area. Vail is very fortunate to have one of the best school districts in Arizona. Vail Unified School District. The schools are forward looking and entered the computer age far ahead of most schools throughout the country. The District was featured on several major television networks on shows such a 60 minutes and 20/20. There is excellent interaction between the teachers and parents and, in many cases, they have even made it possible to eliminate the need for those heavy backpacks.
