Former McClintock’s Steakhouse makes way for Saguaro Ranch Owners’ Club
Saguaro Property Development LLC, Scott Lundberg and Brian Peschel, development partners, bought the community in 2019 with a vision to make it the “Best of the Best” in luxury, natural desert, community living, a dream come true! Located at the northern end of Thornydale Drive in the Tortolita Mountains, north of Tucson.
The exclusive 1,100-acre gated community, 35 minutes north of downtown Tucson, is distinguished by an unexpected arrival experience — a private tunnel entrance. Everyone passing through this unique portal is wowed by a National Park like setting, discovering a secluded sanctuary that combines welcomed privacy with an active, outdoor lifestyle and diversity of amenities.
“We are excited to bring energy and purpose into Saguaro Ranch with a vision for healthy living and fitness in a one of a kind Sonoran Desert setting,” said Scott Lundberg, who also lives in the community. “We captured our longtime friend and past business partner, renowned southwest architect Ron Robinette, to help spearhead the establishment of a private homeowners clubhouse with special amenities and planned future home designs to make Saguaro Ranch an exclusive private community high up in the Tortolita Mountains of Tucson Arizona.”
