Dove Mountain custom homesites– $400,000 to $1 million

The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain—residences from $1.5 million to $3.5 million; custom homesites from $750,000 to $1.8 million

If you crave “greens living,” look no further than Dove Mountain in Marana. With two world-class golf courses within clubs’ reach, and three more Jack Nicklaus courses scheduled to open at the Ritz-Carlton by January 2009, Dove Mountain is the end-all, be-all for house hunters longing for the life of leisure.

Homes in The Private Collection at the Terrace or Gallery Canyon afford residents breathtaking views of Dove Mountain’s greens, and Gallery Canyon’s custom homesites are within walking distance of The Gallery Clubhouse. The Private Collection offers three 3,000 to 4,000-sq.ft. floor plans, all of which include private courtyards and views of the North Course’s 16th, 17th and 18th holes. Two of these, The Campo and The Estancia, also include detached guest quarters.

This master-planned community wouldn’t be complete without the Ritz-Carlton and its residences, the first phase of which will include 91 single-family homes and 16 custom estate lots, all adjacent either to the Nicklaus signature courses or open spaces with views of the Tortolitas. But that’s not all. Home management, concierge and valet, housekeeping and even room service are also available.
