With its beautiful backdrop of the Santa Catalina Mountains and prime location in the Town of Oro Valley, a prestigious suburb of Tucson Arizona. This 45 to 55 plus active adult community has immediate appeal. The open green space and desert views provided by our golf course add to that appeal, as does the outstanding reputation of the golf course itself. The number and variety of our amenities, clubs and organizations, equal or exceed those seen in other active adult communities. Our library is a unique asset, unmatched elsewhere.
The Del Webb – Pulte built homes are well-constructed and maintained, as is the entire completed community. Common areas and individual homes have a pleasingly homogenous appearance. The Sun City Oro Valley location has unique advantages: immediate proximity to a major new shopping center and others, a multi-screen movie theater, a new state-of- the-art Oro Valley Hospital, Catalina State Park and so many area attractions. Our weather draws those from colder climates to Southern Arizona. SCV average daytime temperatures are 10 to 15 degrees cooler than the Phoenix area, only a 2-hour drive, for even more attractions and things to do.
Public transportation, such as the Coyote Run and Sun Shuttle buses run through the community. Churches of many faiths are nearby. We have so much to offer prospective residents and active adults. Call or email us to schedule a no obligation tour of Sun City Oro Valley by one of our volunteer homeowner Ambassadors. Or simply request more information.
Although many of our residents are still actively employed, many are retired. In Sun City Oro Valley one can be as active as you wish, or just enjoy living. Many of our homeowners exemplify the living of an active adult resort lifestyle, participating in physically demanding activities ranging from swimming, golf and tennis to all types of dancing, aerobic exercise, group hiking on nearby trails and in the Grand Canyon. They are interested in Sun City Oro Valley's challenging new amenities, such as Pickleball - recently described by the Arizona Republic as ''the hottest fitness fad at active adult communities."
Many homeowners are continually learning through diverse activities such as genealogy and in the computer learning center, Institute of Learning in Retirement, arts and crafts classes, a variety of discussion groups, such as the Investment Club, etc. The University of Arizona and Pima Community College are also nearby. Residents are social - playing cards, traveling, singing, and hosting gourmet dinners. They are volunteers – serving as Board Members, on committees, patrolling SCV in the wee small hours as part of the Posse (our neighborhood watch), hosting the Special and Senior Olympics, tutoring, ushering at special events, and giving a helping hand to those who need one.
Some residents are grandparents and make frequent use of the amenities provided for children who visit such as beds and highchairs from the Loan Room; children's books, DVDs and puzzles from the library: special children's hours at the pools; and our miniature golf course. Sun City Oro Valley is a highly desirable place to live. Sun City’s home sales, in terms of both prices and unsold inventory, are competitive with nearby communities with homes of comparable size but with little or no amenities such as ours. Contact one of the local Realtors for a current inventory of homes for sale and prices in Tucson's Premier Active Adult Community.
