Alta Vista Sonrisa Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Alta Vista Sonrisa neighborhood, on the northeast side of Tucson in the beautiful Catalina Foothills, lies off of North Crayfcroft Road, which borders the community on the west and north. The neighborhood is comprised of higher-priced luxury homes. It is bounded on the west by North Kolb Road and to the north by East Sunrise Drive.
Homes in the area are located on large one-acre lots, and come with price tags in the $800,000 range. Situated so residents can enjoy the lights of the city at night, the houses come with such amenities as granite countertops and built-in barbeques on spacious patios. Large picture windows and sand adobe exteriors blend with the desert and project a Southwest feel.
Not only do the locals enjoy large, luxurious interiors, they are also surrounded by incredible views of the Catalinas and Rincon Mountains as well a wide variety of desert plants. From rocky cliffs, homes peek over mesquite trees and palo verdes against the backdrop of a blue Tucson sky. In the spring, lilies, delphiniums, primroses, verbenas, paintbrush, and poppies greet the new season with their rainbow hues. On occasion, those living in the neighborhood are privy to seeing the occasional blooming cactus too, such as the fishhook barrel cactus with its orange-red blooms, the cholla with its white floral display, or the prickly pear’s yellow and pink blossoms.
The Alta Vista Sonrisa is one of the prime areas of real estate in the city of Tucson. Built to complement the desert landscape, the homes in the neighborhood quietly define the elegance of foothill living.
