This home is on septic and has only a 2 car garage which would turn some buyers away.  Cat 10 is not only gated but the gate is manned which is an attractive feature to many, plus it is located in the lower Catalina Foothills with easy accessibility to U of A, Downtown and yet is close to all the Catalina Foothills amenities that so many love.

Skyline Country Club Two-Story Burnt Adobe Sells for 950K

skylineColdwell Banker Residential Brokerage sold 6921 N Saint Andrews Drive  for 950K. This one sold for 15K more 16 years ago. Two-story homes with only two car garages that need some renovations do have a harder time selling because most folks want a single level home with at least three car garage(especially in this price-range).

This one has 5,100 square feet and is sited on almost an acre and is very high up in 24 hour manned and gated Skyline Country Club. The views are extraordinary–of the city, the multiple mountain ranges and, of course, it is nestled right in the Sonoran Desert.
