Stone Canyon Properties is pleased to announce the creation of a new website focused solely on the unique enclave of Tuscan Estates, located on the western edge of the Stone Canyon community. Over the years Stone Canyon Properties is proud to have developed a great working relationship with Sombra Homes, the controlling interest along with its affiliates of Tuscan Estates. This has led to Stone Canyon Properties recently being picked as the exclusive sales brokerage for Sombra Homes within Tuscan Estates. To view this new website click the following link: http://stonecanyonsales.com/tuscan
Currently Sombra Homes has one spec home nearly complete with Tuscan Estates and two more planned to begin construction in the near future. The first spec home on Lot 256 has already been put under contract by Stone Canyon Properties, even prior to its expected completion in October. The next spec home which will begin construction is going to be located on Lot 235 and will feature phenomenal views of the Catalina Mountains. The Spec Homes page of the new website will be continually updated with new pictures of the homes as they are built, along with other important information for potential buyers.
Not only does Sombra Homes offer custom homes within Tuscan Estates, but interested buyers can also purchase any of the currently remaining 24 custom homesites. These lots can then be designed and/or built by any company of the buyer’s choosing, including Sombra. To make the review of these lots easier you’ll notice on the new website, on the Custom Homesites page, a table of the available lots which are sortable by lot number, price, or acreage. It’s tools such as these that Stone Canyon is pleased to offer buyers to make the buying experience as easy as possible.
Other information available on the Tuscan Estates website includes the plat map for Phase III (Tuscan Estates), the Subdivision Public Report, and the specific Tuscan Estates Design Guidelines. These design guidelines are supplemental to the general Stone Canyon Design Guidelines but do specify some different requirements. Foremost among the unique requirements is the stipulation that a Tuscan themed design be used. The ultimate goal of this enclave is for the creation of an old-world feeling community. For more information about Tuscan Estates please visit the new website or contact the Sales Office today.
Just hitting the market yesterday was a custom homesite located in Phase IV of Stone Canyon. This particular homesite, Lot 276, has some exciting features that should be of interest to a wide range of potential buyers. Foremost among them is the fantastic desert terrain present on the lot, including many of the renowned age-old boulders for which Stone Canyon has become famous for. Another interesting feature of this lot is that a home has already been designed to fit this lot perfectly. Designed by local architect Marc Soloway, this residence captures the beauty of the natural rock formations, even incorporating them into the landscape and home design. Offered for $229,000, this particular lot is among the least expensive in Phase IV, where much of the recent construction is currently ongoing. The lot is a total of 1.61 acres or 70,250 square feet. For those looking to find a custom homesite that embodies Stone Canyon living, look no further than this excellent lot just newly listed.
The Practice Field at Stone Canyon officially re-opened on Friday, August 31st after several months of renovation. Congratulations to Terry Todd and his staff on a job well done. Along with re-surfacing, the maintenance crew used the time to complete a few other projects as well. The practice bunkers were re-shaped and the bunker tongues were removed to create more space within the bunkers for practice. Also, the area between the putting green and main practice tee was landscaped around the desert habitat signage. The finished product is a cleaner look with fewer maintenance requirements.
The final addition was creating a more clearly visible aiming point in contrast to a standard flagstick. Large aiming poles were produced with black and white striping to catch the golfer’s eye and make better use of laser range finders. All those playing soon should enjoy these subtle changes that were made and of course the excellent hitting conditions on the newly re-surfaced turf. Another upcoming maitnenance project will be the putting aerification and top-dressing on September 17th & 18th. This is a time consuming process and requires an additional half day of closure. The course will remain closed Monday, September 17th and will re-open Tuesday, September 18th at 1:00p.m.
Just reduced in price is a magnificent custom home within Stone Canyon located on Lot 15 overlooking the 10th hole at The Stone Canyon Club. Dramatically reduced from $2,800,000 to $1,695,500, this home is an exceptional value and priced to sell! This wonderful property not only has the golf course view, but also a view of the lake on the 10th hole & an incredible Catalina Mountain view. The residence itself is very well constructed with concrete block and totals 6,213 square feet, including 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. A very large office complete with substantial built-in cabinets, desks, and a murphy bed await the working professional. The backyard boasts a rectangular pool, putting green, and lounge areas. The master suite not only has phenomenal views itself but also includes a sauna and covered patio hot tub area. The chef’s kitchen is finished with Viking, Dacor & Sub Zero stainless steel appliances, making meal preparation enjoyable. Sleek granite countertops and custom cabinetry also bring a fine touch of elegance to the kitchen decor.

Stone Canyon Sales Executive Suzie Corona just listed two new custom lots that are sure to draw considerable interest. Lots 4 & 5 are located adjacent to each other and are being marketed at $295,000 each. These dramatic lots are located in Stone Canyon’s Phase I and sit just to the southwest of The Stone Canyon Club’s 11th hole. The lots are accessed off a small drive lane which means there is excellent privacy even in the front of the home with very little vehicular traffic. Not only do these lots possess great golf course views but they also have mountain views filling the skyline out the backside. Lot 4 conists of 1.06 acres and lot 5 is 1.19 acres. A combination of these two lots for an interested buyer would create a tremendous estate sized parcel.

Stone Canyon experienced a busy wave of closings this past week. Two custom homes in Phase I closed escrow and a custom homesite in Stonegate as well. Activity has continued to be quite high for this time of year, which is a positive sign heading through the summer and into next season. Tucson’s real estate market in general has been heating up for the past half year and this momentum looks like it will carry over into the luxury market as expected, albeit slightly behind the lower price points. There are still excellent buying opportunities present in the marketplace today, although as this inventory gets bought up there will be fewer really good selections. Contact the Stone Canyon Sales Office for more information.

The Professional National Championship will be held June 24th-27th on the Bayonet & Black Horse golf courses in Seaside, California, which overlook the spectacular Monterey Peninsula. This is the fourth time Mike has qualified to play in this prestigious event (2005 at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, South Carolina; 2006 at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York; and 2010 at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana).
The top 20 finishers at the 45th PGA Professional National Championship will qualify for the 2012 PGA Championship, set for August 9th-12th at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. In addition, the winner will receive $75,000, the honor of having his name engraved on the Walter Hagen Cup, exemptions into six PGA Tour events over the next twelve months, and a spot on next year’s U.S. PGA Cup Team.

Congratulations to Mike on this accomplishment and Stone Canyon wishes you all the best!
Unfortunately the second round at the Bayonet course wasn’t kind to Mike and even after his opening round 73 put him in good position he didn’t make the cut for the final two rounds of competition. We again congratulate Mike for qualifying and representing Stone Canyon at this premier event. This surely won’t be the last time he qualifies for the tournament and next time hopefully the ball bounces his way a bit more.
