Northwest Tucson offers a plethora of premier gated communities ranging in price from under $300,000 to more than $5 million. Gated communities offer residents added privacy, security and luxury other communities may not. Each gated community is located within a homeowner’s association to maintain shared property including roads, gates and other community common areas, which helps uphold property values through enforcement of the codes, covenants and restrictions. Master planned communities such as Rancho Vistoso in Oro Valley and Dove Mountain in Marana offer such gated residences. Each development poses something unique, providing its own sense of style to appeal to every homeowner.

Oro Valley has numerous options for gated communities. The town offers a range of housing opportunities from mature neighborhoods to those still in the planning stages. Oro Valley’s premiere guard-gated community of Stone Canyon, located in the master-planned development of Rancho Vistoso, extends a variety of home ownership options from production to custom homes. The community also features The Stone Canyon Club by Phil Mickelson, rated in the top four courses in Arizona in 2014 by Golf Digest. Golf Digest also ranked Stone Canyon as one of the top 70 Best Practice Facilities in 2010 and Golfweek ranked Stone Canyon as 33rd among the top 100 Residential Courses in 2015.
