6151 E Finisterra would have sold for much more in the day of peak high-end Catalina Foothills home sales in 2008, but today it sold for 2.5 million off a List Price of 3.5 million. This brand new home (although built in 2011) is a Mediterrean with almost 9K square feet and is sited on just over an acre in the well-regarded, very exclusive and gated Finisterra, which is next door to coveted Ventana Canyon. If you want security, Finisterra is the place to be; it is very hard to get through their pearly gates. This community is sited on one of the highest elevations in the Catalina Foothills, so it will always be a few degrees lower and will also sometimes see a tad of snow as you get to the top. Few homes offer such spaciousness of 6 bedrooms and 7 1/2 baths with a 4 car garage, especially being new in the coveted 85750 zip code. It was listed by Long Realty and sold by Realty Execs Tucson Elite.
It should be noted this is only the third home that sold for over 2 million this year in the Foothills, with the other 2 homes selling for just over 2 million. However, Russ Lyon – Sotheby’s sold one for 2.6 million in Miravel in June. Miravel is NW of the Catalina Foothills and is, of course, usually rated as in the top 5 resorts in the United States.
