Yup - VERY nice indeed (stayed in a vacation rental there last fall). As mentioned, I'm sure it's pretty pricey.

What is the area on the west side of the I-10 like? (... across from the Casas Adobes / Catalina Foothills).

We're retirees, living with an aging parent. We'd like to get a nice home with at east an acre of land, somewhere quiet, but not too far from shopping, hospitals and parks.

Though you didnt specify a price range, I used to live in that area. I would suggest seeking properties in the 85742 and 85737 zip codes as there are some nice properties with at least an acre of land ranging from the $270 to $400k+. You may get additional posts suggesting other areas, but that's my piece of info.

Hmm, interesting. Both those zip codes are just on the East side of the I-10. We're thinking of a couple places just across the I-10 (on the West side) and a little south. The zips we've been looking at are 85745 and 85743. What is the west side of the I-10 like, in that area? (Price range we could afford tops out around high 300s or maybe low 400s; the place in 85745 that we're looking at is west of Silverbell Rd. and just north of W El Camino Del Cerro.)

On a related note, we're likely now looking for an Assisted Living place for my 92yo mother in the months ahead. Any suggestions in NW or North Tucson?

Bragnan, the west side has some solid nice areas that fall within or even below your price range for what your seeking. I'm very positive that there's some very nice home's out there on at least 1/2 acre or more lots, and around roughly 2000+ square feet homes in the $250-$300k range.

How far is not too far? You might consider the area around Thornydale & Linda Vista; it's convenient to shopping in three directions (ten minute drive) and ten minutes from a major hospital. It's also within 10-15 minutes of a couple of assisted living facilities. One is The Fountains at La Cholla (Living Choices at The Fountains at La Cholla. And we really mean choice!).

You'll have fun taking care of an acre in Tucson! Make sure you stock up on heavy duty gloves and tape or white glue (to pull the stickers out). Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for snakes. On an acre, you'll have lots of small wildlife like packrats, and they are popular food for the rattlesnakes & other (non-venomous) snakes.

My elderly mother lives with me (near Omni Tucson National) and she sometimes gets invited to activities at The Fountains. She's also been to some films and lectures at The Country Club of La Cholla, which is on La Cholla Blvd. just north of Magee. They have two-bedroom apartments for the residents there (like smallish condo units). I don't think that place is as big as The Fountains but it seems well-managed and is in a convenient location near the Foothills Mall. Both those residences are very close to Northwest Medical Center, also on La Cholla.
