There is something more than majestic to mountain views. They draw us to them like any aspect of nature. They help us stay calm, focused and centered. It is not surprising that people love a home that has a beautiful view of the Mountains.
The challenge is building homes on a hillside is much costlier than building on flat land.
Most of the Phoenix area Valley of the Sun is flat as well. We do have Mountains surrounding the city. Where will you have the best chance of having magnificent Mountain Views? In the communities closest to the biggest mountains.
The most significant mountains in the area are to the north and east of Phoenix; Tonto National Forrest, and Superstition Mountains. There are a few other notable mountains scattered around as well.
In the northeast, the views of Tonto Nationa Forrest and McDowell Mountains from Rio Verde, Tonto Verde and Trilogy at Verde River are truly spectacular. Then I would head to Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch, the terraced lots have created amazing views from many of the home sites. Heading out to Gold Canyon the views of the Superstitions are awesome at Mountain Brook Village. Next on my list would be to the north of Tucson the SaddleBrook Communitieswith views of the Catalina’s.
This next group have fewer homes with mountain views, but views are available. I then would go to Canta Mia next to the Estrella Mountain Regional Park, and Sun City Festivalwith views of the White Tank Mountains. Lastly I include Solera at Jonson Ranch located next to the San Tan Mountains.
