Whispering Wings Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Whispering Wings Neighborhood of Tucson, Arizona is in the 85748 zip code area, to the south of the Santa Cruz Riverbed. Below the wrinkles of the foothills, this neighborhood is set on the rolling waves of the desert sands. Each property has a good stretch of elbowroom between the homes, which preserves both privacy of the residents and the environment.
The neighborhood boundaries are East Speedway Boulevard to the north, where it meets with the eastern border of North Freeman Road. The southern line cuts through the desert, behind the properties that follow along Samson Place. The invisible property lines lay claim to the undisturbed desert as the south meets the western line behind the homes of North Cam Cordon.
The Arizona National Golf course, to the north, is a design by Robert Trent Jones Jr., and is a formidable 6,785-yard course that follows the local landscape. To the east, avid hikers will find the Saguaro National Park and the Douglas Spring Trail Head that leads to points of interest, such as the Mica Tank, Rock Springs, and Aguila Tank.
To the west of the Whispering Wings Neighborhood is the Saguaro Vista Shopping Center, where the residents can stock up at the local Fry’s Food Store, get that caffeine fix at the nearby Starbucks, or stop at the Splash Nails and Spa.
The Whispering Wings Neighborhood has palatial homes, built early in the 21st century, which use modern energy saving materials to reduce the environmental impact of the homes. Heat reflective roofing, on the airy Southwestern design, as well as large lots, reduces heat retention in the summer months, and uses less energy to cool the large homes.
The neighborhood homes employ the use of elongated driveways to reduce heat from the road surface, and forgo the convenience of sidewalks.
