Westgate at Ventana Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Westgate at Ventana is a pleasant neighborhood, located in the affluent Catalina Foothills area of Tucson. Situated east and south of North Craycroft Road, west of North Kolb Road, and north of East Sunrise Drive, the community consists of stucco-framed structures whose neutral tan exteriors blend in well with the surrounding desert scenery. Homes in the area run about $400,000 and are situated in close proximity to the exclusive Lowes Ventana Canyon Resort.
The neighborhood is nestled within a natural landscape of saguaro, mesquite, and palo verde trees, all which are enhanced in the springtime with the painted blooms of desert wildflowers. Residents in the area enjoy the colorful blossoms of orange poppies, red paintbrush, yellow buttercups, pink verbena, purple lupine, and yellow desert mariposa lilies. The cheerful hues attract a variety of butterflies, including queen butterflies, cloudless sulphurs, swallowtails, and American ladies.
People in the area enjoy a number of activities too, including jogging, walking, hiking, mountain biking, golf, tennis, skiing, and snowboarding. The Mount Lemmon ski area, which is located on the highest peak of the Catalina Mountain Range, is open for winter skiing even when it’s a warm, sunny January day in the Tucson valley.
In addition, residents are close to luxury shopping and fine restaurants. If they head south, they can shop to their heart’s content at the upscale shopping center, La Encantada. The outside mall, which is located on East Skyline Drive, is home to a host of top-line retailers, including Tommy Bahama, Bose, Apple, Tiffany and Company, Louis Vuitton, and Crate and Barrel.
Westgate at Ventana is an idyllic location in which to reside in the beautiful foothills area of northeast Tucson.
