Lower Foothills and Lovely Central Neighborhoods

The Lower Foothills & Lovely Central Neighborhoods


The lower foothills; Skyline Drive to River Road and Oracle to Sabino Canyon is dotted with some of the loveliest older estates in Tucson Homes by known architects like Tom Gist, Joesler and Arthur Brown to name a few, and lesser known architects and builders. Many homes sit on larger lots as these were built back when land was a bit cheaper. You are still close to all the wonderful shopping and dinning found in "The Foothills" and you are a bit closer to all that is cool closer into town!            

The Lovely Central Neighborhoods:  So you want to be urban but you still want to live in a super cool neighborhood? Well Tucson has it! Let's start with The Sam Hughes Neighborhood; though Sam Hughes, one of Tucson's first businessmen, never lived anywhere near what is now called the Sam Hughes Neighborhood, it is a lovely historic area right next the the University of Arizona and is filled with lovely Craftsman style bungalows, tutors, dutch gambrel and adobe style homes. Some done up to the 10's some needed a loving hand. Then there is The Blenman Elm Neighborhood which occupies just about a square mile just East of The University Medical Center and consists of about 17 styles of homes that were popular between the 1920's and 1950's...lovely and right in the heart of town! There is also; Poet's Square filled with lovely mid-century ranch homes on nice sized lots, El Encanto where Linda Ronstadt's family lived for a long time, Colonia Solana filled with wonderful historic homes and nice walk-able streets, El Montevido located near Country Club and Speedway.
