The Space

It is a peaceful area with amazing sunsets surrounded by beautiful, 360 degree serene views of the San Cayetano, Tumacacori, and Santa Rita mountain ranges. It’s also 30 minutes south of the retirement community of Green Valley, Arizona, and about 45 minutes south of Tucson. Even though the address shows Rio Rico, the house is really east of Tumacacori.

The paved roads and diverse terrain of flat areas and steep hills makes it a prime area for bicycling and training. Bicycles & maps provided. Birding is also very popular in the area. The Santa Cruz River and Anza Trail are 5 minutes away. The area is about 4500 feet elevation, typically 10 degrees cooler than Tucson. Shopping, golfing, services, and excellent restaurants are within 10-15 minutes’ drive. See the links below for more information about the area.
