Sunset North Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located on the northeast side in the Catalina foothills, the Sunset North neighborhood is an exclusive area located next to the Tucson Country Club. The half-million dollar homes in the area are constructed in a number of southwest designs. Burnt adobe and red brick structures sit among saguaro and ocotillo. Here, the setting sun paints the sky in the dramatic hues of terra cotta and pink, highlighted with tinges of sandstone — the tints and shades serving as a backdrop for the Santa Catalina and Tortolita Mountains.
This is a good area to listen to the song of crickets on a warm fall evening or watch roadrunners race across a stretch of peaceful landscape. Visit many of the homes in the area and you will be greeted by arched entryways and interiors that feature beamed ceilings. Although residents are surrounded by desert scenery, they do not have to drive far to dine out or shop.
For instance, the neighborhood is a close drive to Montana Avenue, a casual yet upscale eatery. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner and tempts diners with such appetizers as grilled artichoke and shrimp cocktail with an avocado and mango salsa accompaniment. Dinner entrees include such fare as roasted chicken with sautéed spinach and sea scallops, with a complement of snap peas, bacon, and caramelized cauliflower.
As mentioned, the community is adjacent to the Tucson Country Club. If you are a member, you are privy to such activities as swimming, fitness classes, tennis, and golf. The almost 600 acres of the property, once having been a ranch, was established in 1947.
The Sunset North neighborhood is simply an idyllic spot for anyone who enjoys nature, particularly the desert. With mountain views, breathtaking sunsets, and homes that depict the beauty of mission and southwest styling, Sunset North makes Tucson a special and dynamic place to call home.
