Rancho Marana - Buying a New Home in Marana, AZ


Marana is located just northwest of Tucson, AZ and was established in 1881.  The name Marana comes from a Spanish word meaning “jungle” or impassable tangle” and the town was named for its overgrown stretches of dense mesquite thickets.  Marana is known for its agriculture and although Wheat and Cotton are still a major force in the town’s economy, population and new businesses fed by the nearby trains and regional airport have helped the area grow.

If you are planning on buying a new home in Marana, AZ, one of the newer subdivisions of Marana is Rancho Marana.  Rancho Marana is located just west of Sandario Road, and bordered on the south by Moore Road.  A mere 2-3 minutes from Interstate 10, Marana residents have a 30 minute drive to downtown Tucson, or about 75-80 minutes to the Phoenix Airport.

Homes here are affordable, and range from cozy 2 bedroom homes for sale in contemporary style to huge 5 bedroom two-story houses.  The community features contemporary facades with tile roofing, surrounded by low care desert landscaping and sprawling greenbelts.  Students may attend nearby elementary and middle schools in the Marana School District.  The High School is located about 20 minutes away on Sandario Road.

Thanks Deane - come visit soon!!  There are some gorgeous homes here, but they aren't on the market, so I didn't think it was right to take their photo.  I appreciate you stopping by so often online!
