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.
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
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.
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.
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.
