Diamond Bell Ranch is breathtaking with its higher elevation and 360° mountain views. Located close enough to downtown Tucson but far enough away to provide peace and tranquility, Diamond Bell Ranch provides the means to really enjoy our beautiful desert.

Diamond Bell Ranch adjoins State Trust Land which provides hundreds of trails to be explored. Hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-roading are all at your doorstep. The friendly, custom home community is located on the western slope of the Sierrita Mountains above Altar Valley which overlooks Kitt Peak and Baboquivari Peak to the west and southwest. This area holds trails that can be connected to Arivaca, Sasabe, Lochiel, Sonoita, Green Valley, Oro Valley, Catalina and beyond for truly endless riding. The surrounding desert is filled with Mesquite and Palo Verde trees along with groves of giant Ocotillo and Saguaro cactus. Wildlife is abundant. Beautiful birds abound. Deer, javalina, coyotes and the occasional bobcat and desert tortoise are part of the neighborhood. The sights and sounds of the desert inhabitants are truly amazing.

The evenings are adorned with brilliant sunsets. It is indescribable to see a new sunset each evening that never disappoints. During monsoon season, the magnificent rain shafts are given a red hue while the lightning dazzles the desert and the booming thunder echoes down the valley.

Beautiful sunsets turn to star-filled skies. With Kitt Peak Observatory close by, Diamond Bell Ranch is obviously a stargazer's paradise. On some evenings the Milky-way hangs down close like a billowy blanket that stretches across the sky. It is truly jaw-dropping to see, something that can't be seen in town.
