7707 N Ancient Indian Drive, an almost new (5 year old) contemporary sold for $1,450,000. It was listed by Long Realty and sold by Andy Courtney Properties after being on the market only 3 months. It sold for 1.4 million new a few years ago and the lot alone cost almost 600K at the peak of the market. This almost 5,600 square foot home is sited on a city and mountain view homesite that is over an acre and a half.
This is only the second home that has sold in popular Pima Canyon this year. The inventory in the community has been low with some houses not offering popular features such as 3 or more car garage and pool and spa. Other years the selections have been more and hence the greater number of sales. This year Sin Vacas which is its neighbor ( that has usually older homes for sale) has seen more sales. Pima Canyon has been the darling of the Foothills for these reasons: the setting is magnificent; the neighborhood has all newer custom homes (not a combination of custom and tract-built homes); it has a 24 hour manned community yet no other community amenities that many do not use (community pool, rec center, etc), the location is on the western side of the Foothills near La Enchantada shopping and restaurants, and it is closer to I -10 (so closer proximity to Phoenix and its airport).
***The Catalina Foothills continues to offer luxury housing that is a great value. If you want to explore the Tucson market, give me a call at 520-615-2598.***
