Did somebody say golf? This town home sits right across from the Omni Tucson National Golf Resort, a one-time PGA Tour stop. In addition to the year-round warm climate, we think you'll love the walk-up courtyard area in front of the home and the full-length, private covered patio in the back. You'll find sliding glass doors in both the spacious master bedroom and the living room, both of which open out onto the patio. The kitchen offers tile floors and standard appliances. It also has a breakfast nook. And to the north, you'll find a limited view of the Tortolita Mountains — not a bad way to spend mornings in retirement.

The Fairfield community is no slouch when it comes to amenities and activities. There's an active recreation center, a pool, a spa, an exercise room, tennis courts and shuffleboard. Plus, there are plenty of walking, or jogging, paths throughout the community to boot. HOA fees are just $108 per month. Need a little nightlife? Downtown Tucson is just a short 20-minute drive.
