Located on the northeast side of Tucson, The Indian Ridge Historic District is a prime example of the architectural styles of the post-World War II subdivision developments of that time. The Indian Ridge District features broad, curving roadways that flow and meander though natural and enhanced contours of desert typography. There is a true sense of community with a Swim Team, Fourth of July Parade, Halloween Party and Holiday Luminaries on Christmas Eve.
The original Mid Century Modern architectural styles prominent in this neighborhood where characterized by flat planes, extensive use of glass with an emphasis on materials and form. Homes generally sit on larger lots connecting the interior to the exterior, bringing nature in.
Claim to Fame
The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 16th, 2010. And, has one of Tucson’s oldest swim teams still going strong.
The large lot sizes, mature vegetation and the great location make this neighborhood desirable. Some homes are dated and in need of some deferred maintenance. An occasional fixer upper is usually scooped us fast.
Home values may vary depending on the size of the home and the upgrades that have been made thru out the years.
The neighborhood itself has no sidewalks or lighting. The streets are wide and many residents walk their dogs or get a good workout just tooling around the neighborhood. It is a short distance from Udall Park, a major grocery store, and many restaurants. I would take my Bike!
