Why Dove Mountain Attracts Phoenix Buyers

Where we live is an anchor to our happiness.

Perhaps that’s why Dove Mountain has been experiencing an uptick in inquiries from Phoenix buyers seeking beautiful homes surrounded by breathtaking scenery and close to recreation, restaurants and resort-lifestyle amenities.

Significant value, spectacular setting

While the Tucson area’s lower home prices are undeniably appealing — averaging 16% less than Phoenix and 26% less than Scottsdale — it’s the region’s spectacular natural beauty, favorable climate and outstanding quality of life that truly captivate luxury buyers.

Home to 5 distinct mountain ranges and a national park, the Tucson area is a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts. In contrast to Phoenix’s mostly urban trails, living at Dove Mountain means access to endless opportunities for outdoor adventure in Southern Arizona’s unspoiled wilderness.

Indeed, Tucson was recently ranked among the 15 best cities for recreation in the country. It’s also known as one of the most bike-friendly city in the US, thanks in large part to The Chuck Huckelberry Loop, offering 131+ miles of car-free riding and easily accessed from the base of Dove Mountain.

The area also boasts some of the best rock climbing in the state, with thousands of routes on Mount Lemmon alone, rising high above the Sonoran Desert floor at 9,000 feet. And with temperatures consistently cooler than in Phoenix, Southern Arizona residents can enjoy outdoor recreation year-round.

Take in the views

Southern Arizona’s spectacular vistas — unobstructed by smog, high-rises and corporate buildings — are another significant draw. Though Tucson has a vibrant downtown core, much of the region’s architecture has a low profile, with stretches of lush desert vegetation weaving between communities. This makes for mesmerizing vistas of expansive skies, majestic saguaros and lavender-hued mountains stretching far into the horizon.

And, once the glowing sun sets, Southern Arizona’s stars shine brighter, thanks to dark sky ordinances and some of the best air quality in the West.

 Vibrant Southwestern culture

Though Phoenix may be the state’s economic hub, Tucson’s cultural appeal is undeniable. With its vibrant arts scene, exceptional gastronomy and distinctive architecture, Tucson is having its moment in the sun,
with Condé Nast Traveler recently naming the city 2024’s top destination in North America and the Caribbean.

Tucson’s relaxed atmosphere allows for casual enjoyment of the best things in life – music, food, heritage. The city is home to the state’s oldest symphony orchestra, a professional ballet company, museums, galleries, historic sites and so much more. A year-round roster of events, festivals and concerts featuring established and up-and-coming artists make the city a vibrant cultural hub. And, as a designated UNESCO City of Gastronomy, Tucson offers delectable dining experiences at every turn.

Dove Mountain: a natural and recreational oasis

Amidst the region’s many attractions, Dove Mountain is a destination unto itself. Surrounded by protected lands, anchored by the 5-star Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain Resort & Spa and home to three elite golf courses, our community offers peace, luxury and unparalleled opportunities for play.

At Dove Mountain, enjoying nature is as easy as stepping outside your door, thanks to 50+ miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails in the adjacent Tortolita Preserve and Tortolita Mountain Park.

Our avid golfers hit the greens unhampered by Phoenix golf clubs’ notoriously long waiting lists. At The Golf Clubs of Dove Mountain, memberships are available to suit a variety of interests and lifestyles. For the true golf enthusiast, the Icon 63 membership grants access to 63 holes of championship golf across 2 clubs — The Golf Club at Dove Mountain and The Gallery Golf Club — plus access to two clubhouses, five restaurants and The Gallery Sports Club.

Room to breathe, close to everything you need.

In Southern Arizona, residents release the breath they didn’t know they were holding. Far from the smog, noise and the congestion of the big city, Dove Mountain residents find peace, privacy and seclusion in a spectacular recreational oasis — all just 90 minutes from Phoenix and 20 minutes from downtown Tucson.
