6390 N Placita De Tia Ro (listed by Long Realty), went under contract after being marketed for almost a year by Long Realty (starting list price was 100K higher than the present list price of $895,000). Alta Vista is adjacent to popular, gated resort of Ventana Canyon. Alta Vista is ungated, but shares similar fantastic views of the Catalinas and the city. The lots tend to be smaller than some adjacent communities–this one is .54 of an acre, but as a result you can get more for your money–this one is 3,742 square feet and is 15 years old. Many also like this neighborhood because it is so close to Ventana Canyon Elementary School and only a few miles from Esperero Middle School and Catalina Foothills High School; all very sought-after schools in Tucson because the test scores are high; classes are smaller than average, etc.
