20 apartments for rent in Sunrise Canyon, Tucson, AZ
Sunrise Canyon is a neighborhood in Tucson, which is located off East Territory Drive and is encompassed by North Craycroft Road on the west, East Sunrise Drive on the north and North Kolb Road on the east. Area homes can range in price from $300,000 to $700,000 and are constructed of stone and brick building materials that meld well with the desert scenery.
Directly south of the Lowes Ventana Canyon Resort, the neighborhood is made up, basically, of three-bedroom abodes, with fireplaces, patios, and barbecues. Vegetation in the area includes mesquite and ironwood trees, whose shade is well-appreciated in the Tucson summer when the average temperature is around 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Nevertheless, residents are not too far away from the cooler temperatures of Mount Lemmon, the highest peak of the Santa Catalinas, a mountain range that stands in its majestic glory north of the neighborhood. Temperatures on the peak are generally 20 to 30 degrees lower. Therefore, locals can stay in the valley and keep cool with a swim, or choose to go up to the ski area.
The Iron Door Restaurant, located on the mountain, offers patio dining and is a nice way to retreat from the heat of the valley in the summertime. The ski area, where the restaurant is located, is also an excellent getaway in the winter. Residents, therefore, can play a round of golf and go skiing all in the very same day. Given its location, Sunrise Canyon makes it possible for the people living there to enjoy a diverse range of activities.
