Why I chose to move to Madera Highlands in Sahuarita, Arizona

with 75 Comments

I moved to Arizona in 2009 and rented a room from a college buddy. Brent lived in Madera Highlands. I was awestruck at the mountains and expansive desert landscape surrounding Madera Highlands.

My home search took me all over Tucson, Vail, Oro Valley, and Sahuarita in the months that followed. I had expected all the communities to be as beautiful as Madera Highlands but kept finding myself back in Madera Highlands.

I grew up in Nebraska where I could see an expansive landscape. All Nebraska afforded was unexciting a view of cows and corn though. Madera Highlands replaced the cows with a lush Green Pecan Farm, surrounded by expansive desert preserve teeming with life, all in the shadow of a 9,452 ft peak and mountain range. I was in love with the setting.

This was in 2009. I left engineering in 2011 and got my Real Estate license. After showing countless homes. After driving over 120,000 miles in Pima County for work… I still have not found another place I would call home.

There are many reasons to like Madera Highlands. Here are a few things I have come to appreciate most.

  • Surrounded by Santa Rita Desert Preserve
  • Adjacent 14 mile long pecan farm
  • 20 minutes from Tucson
  • 30 minutes from Mexico
  • No big city traffic
  • Next to Madera Canyon
  • Under shadow of 9,452 ft Mount Wrightson
  • Dark sky laws preserve night sky views of stars
  • Lots of trees throughout community
  • Two parks with big grass areas for kids to play
