Gates Pass cottage description

This beautiful Santa Fe style casita is nestled on 5 acres in the Sonoran Desert, adjacent to Saguaro National Park West and Tucson Mountain Park. The casita is surrounded by patios, so you can appreciate the 360 degree views.

Inside, high ceilings, polished concrete floor, Mexican tile treatments and a kiva fireplace make the feel of living in the Southwest come alive. The open floor plan and big windows bring the desert to you. Quiet and private, we call it living on the Nature Channel. Artists, writers, photographers and contemplatives can gaze upon Babaoquivari and Kitts Peak for inspiration from the covered patio.

Walk, bike or drive to the Desert Museum and Mountain Park. The property is minutes to Tucson Studios, Wildlife Museum and nearby amenities. It is 25 minutes to Historic Downtown and the University of Arizona featuring museums and cultural events. Casinos are 15 minutes away. The best of the desert and enjoy city life as you please!
