Ghost River Ranch Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
You could say that Ghost River Ranch is “hauntingly” beautiful, when, in the evening, the area is cast in the shadows of the Catalina and Tortolita mountain ranges, and saguaros stand guard over a landscape marked by sand, sage, mesquite, and palo verde trees.
Homes in the area are median priced at around $300,000 and feature picture windows set in facades of adobe and stucco frames, all of which mingle well with the desert scenery. The neighborhood is close to natural attractions like Sabino Canyon and the ski resort Mt. Lemmon, and is a magnet for bird species, such as kestrels, flycatchers, wrens, jays, quails and hummingbirds. It isn’t unusual to hear the distant howls of coyotes or see jackrabbits, prairie dogs, desert cottontails, gopher snakes, and various kinds of lizards.
In addition, residents can take a drive up to Mt. Lemmon any time of year where they are never too far away from the changing seasons. In October, branches of deciduous trees showcase leaves of rust and gold, and catch errant snowflakes in late November before the start of the skiing season.
Locals and visitors alike enjoy taking the ski lift in the fall and delighting in the view of the valley below, all the while surrounded by hills populated with fir trees and Ponderosa pines. Sometimes it’s possible to spot a mountain lion, deer or even a black bear, all who make Mt. Lemmon their home.
Needless to say, Ghost River Ranch offers residents a variety of activities and sites to see, thereby making desert living in this part of Tucson all the more fun and inviting.
