Catalina Foothills Estates

Tangible Wealth - A Luxury Real Estate Company

Catalina Foothills Estates is the oldest luxury master planned community in North Tucson. Developed by John Murphey starting in the 1930s, he was joined by architect Josias Joesler to build many of Tucson’s most beautiful historic homes in Catalina Foothills Estates. Joesler inspired a signature style incorporating design elements from Mexico and Spain that also celebrates Sonoran Desert landscape and weather. The older sections of Catalina Foothills Estates were built on lush desert from one to six acre lots with breathtaking mountain vistas and is lovingly referred to as Old Foothills. Catalina Foothills Estates is comprised of ten subdivisions framed by stunning views on hilltop acreage and showcases many of the city’s finest modern custom homes that were designed and built by locally renowned architects and builders.
