Chula Vista Ranch Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Chula Vista Ranch neighborhood is in the 85704 zip code of Tucson. Resting in the center of the valley between the Santa Catalina Mountains and the Saguaro National Park, the neighborhood has an abundance of activities for the residents to enjoy. North of the city, this section of tamed desert has transformed into a tribute of modern living and the preservation of nature.
The namesake of the neighborhood, West Chula Vista Road, is the northern border before it meets with the eastern line of North Polemo Avenue. The main street into Chula Vista Ranch of North Placita Chula Vista curves to the east, creating the southwestern edge that cuts the back of the properties out of the desert.
The Chula Vista Ranch Neighborhood has more available then just view, with the El Conquistador Golf Course, an 18-hole course stretching to a total of 6340 yards, opened in 1985. To the east is the La Encantada shopping center home to the Apple Store, J Crew, and Talbots. The University of Arizona campus is to the south of the neighborhood, with the Coronado National Forest to the west.
The homes of the neighborhood are larger versions of classic Santa Fe, Hacienda and Spanish Style homes planted on nearly full acre lots. The properties build up on a gradual rise from the road level. Each home uses water saving desert landscaping to blend in with the natural surroundings. The Houses also plant trees near the structure to provide shade during the summer heat.
There is no through traffic in this canyon neighborhood, which helps to keep the streets quiet. Although the city is just moments away the area has a rustic feel as it does without sidewalks or bike lanes, forcing pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles to share the road.
