Westward Look Terrace Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Westward Look Terrace community is in the 85704 ZIP code, situated between downtown Tucson and the Santa Catalina Mountains. As the neighborhood rises to the east, it forms a steeped view over the city. Nestled in the desert, its streets are shallow branches reaching into the sand. Unofficial trails and washes cut through the desert, connecting one neighborhood to the next.
North Edgewood Place leads through the neighborhood and curves to the east before ending. Westward Look Terrace homes face this main road, with the boundary at the end of the properties. East Ina Road is the main way into the neighborhood as well as the northern border. The eastern line cuts through the natural desert. The back of the homes along East Deone Avenue is the southern line, while the end of the homes along East Alpia Way finishes off the west.
While tucked away, the Westward Look Terrace neighborhood has plenty of activities available to residents. The Oro Valley Country Club is to the north. This club has a 7,023-yard, par-72 golf course. Shopping is available to the east, at the La Encantada Shopping Center, where residents will find an Apple Store, J Crew, and the local Talbots. The Oracle Ridge Shopping Center and the Tucson Mall are to the south and feature more than 100 different retailers.
Neighborhood homes, which were built during the late 1940s and early 1950s, have generous property proportions compared to those of modern subdivisions. The larger ranch and hacienda designs blend into the surrounding scenery. Wild prickly pear cactus and mesquite hide the homes from the street.
The rural setting of the Westward Look Terrace neighborhood excludes sidewalks and bike lanes. Drivers in vehicles should use caution on the narrow roadway, as some of the desert fauna can obscure visibility at bends in the roadway.
