As we roll into September, our snowbirds are starting to make plans to make their move west into a more forgiving winter climate. Saddlebrooke, Arizona - to the north of Tucson - is a very popular spot for our winter visitors to roost.
When it comes to our retirees - permanent and temporary - Tucson's population is growing. Last year, the 55+ age group made up almost 13% of the homes sold. Traditionally, our market is about 20% retirees. There are about 20 adult communities in Tucson/Pima County and Saddlebrooke is one of the larger ones.
Saddlebrooke is a 55+ planned community, built by Robson Homes. There is one main community with two different areas - Saddlebrooke One and Saddlebrooke Two. To the east of Saddlebrooke One is The Preserve Golf Club at Saddlebrooke, to the northeast is Saddlebrooke Ranch - new build communities and are governed by Saddlebrooke Two's HOA.
Saddlebrooke is FULL of activities, restaurants, fitness opportunities, learning...the list goes on and on:
(3) Fine Restaurants
(3) Popular Grills
(1) 480-Seat Theater
(2) Arts & Crafts Facilities
(4) Fitness Centers
(1) Billiards Hall
(3) 18-Hole Golf Courses
(1) 27-Hole Golf Course
(21) Tennis Courts
(8) Swimming Pools
A Softball Field
Bocce Ball Courts
Private Dog Park (Dexter's Place)
The list of clubs - political, arts/crafts, excursions, cards/games, travel - are too many to mention. At last count, there were over 80 listed on their websites.
So - how much are you looking at?
Prices range from the upper $100's to the upper $400's (based on homes for sale currently) in Saddlebrooke One and Two. They range in size from 1270 up to 3,000+ square feet for single family homes. You'll also find a small pocket of little townhomes with incredible views that are available in the upper $100's to low $200's - Portofino Villa.
The great thing about Saddlebrooke's location is that you aren't that far away from other amenities like medical facilities. You're close to I-10 and state road 77 - south takes you to Tucson, north/west will take you to Phoenix, north/east will take you to Biosphere, the town of Oracle and great mountain drives.
I would love to show you around Saddlebrooke! My past clients love it there and have raved about the wonderful new friends that they have made. Get in touch with us today and we'll make plans to visit together!
