Green Valley, Arizona Real Estate
Green Valley, Arizona
Green Valley, Arizona is a clean, uncluttered town of 27,000 located in the Santa Cruz Valley. The nearby Santa Rita mountains moderate the hot desert climate without losing any of the warm and sunny days that make Arizona a popular retirement destination. This golfer's paradise offers several local courses for the serious player, and is located 20 miles south of the links in Tucson. Other attractions include Mount Hopkins Observatory and the arts and crafts Mecca of nearby Tubac.
Communities in Green Valley, AZ
While Green Valley may be on the short list of best places to retire, the area is more than a place to enjoy the fruits of a successful career. Golf, hiking, tennis, swimming and other activities invite residents to enjoy the Arizona weather. Homes for sale in Green Valley are usually part of planned communities, where traditional Southwestern architecture is carefully harmonized with the landscape to create a stunning beauty.
Quail Creek is a semi-private country club on the east side of Green Valley. Homes for sale in Quail Creek come on the market in the mid-500's for a moderately sized three bedroom. The Madera Foothills subdivision also stretches along the east side of Interstate 19, and is one of a few non-age restricted subdivisions in the Green Valley area. Homes for sale in the Madera Foothills cater toward the upscale market, with generous layouts and spectacular views of Mount Hopkins and Madera Canyon.
Madera Reserve is north of the Madera Foothills community, just across Continental Boulevard. Madera Reserve real estate is more down to earth, both in style and in price, than the homes in Madera Foothills or Quail Creek. The Canoa Ranch Golf Club has some of the most picturesque greens in all of Green Valley. Small, nicely appointed homes overlook the course, and a careful buyer can close on a home here for about the same price as in Madera reserve. The Alamos subdivision is north of Canoa Ranch and offers the budget conscious buyer an opportunity to experience life in Green Valley.
