Sunset Cliff Drive Home Sold

Thursday, May 28th, 2015


4172 N Sunset Cliff Drive sold today for 439K by CNN Realty Servces, LLC. Last year all the homes with this floorplan (two-story with first floor master bedroom and almost 3K square feet with 3 car garage) sold for a lot less! This shows that Sabino Mountain homes are appreciating. This home was very upgraded but did not have the most expensive upgrade we usually see in this price-range which is a pool. Some of the upgrades include cherry 42″ cabinets, granite countertops, upgraded baths, and outdoor masonry fireplace. It is located on a corner lot.

Indeed this is great news for Sabino Mountain! If you are thinking of buying or selling, give me a call at 520-615-2598. I am passionate about selling homes in my neighborhood!
