Property description



HACIENDA VISTA LEJOS Tucson, Arizona.

This charming vintage adobe house is located in the lush desert foothills area of Tucson, Arizona. Enjoy the feel of a small hacienda and old Tucson in a privately located house on one acre of beautiful natural desert. Awash with light, the large windows in the living room provide birding and wildlife viewing even from indoors!! The house was designed by architect Lewis Hall 1956, who also designed well known Tucson landmarks, including the Thono Chul Tea House and Anthony's Restaurant.

You will find the Mexican courtyard style warm and inviting with lovely views from all the rooms, and every bedroom opens to the patio and pool. Awake to the sunrise over the Catalina Mountains from your bedroom!! The beautiful screened Arizona room with ornate ironwork provides extra dining space. You can enjoy the views from either the front patio or poolside patio. The 1800 square foot single level house has high living/dining room ceilings and saltillo tile floors throughout. Enjoy cozy winter evenings by the large fireplace. The house is tastefully and artistically furnished including original artwork. The deep 16 by 34 foot oval pool is great for swimming in the summer and provides a lovely oasis with palm trees and vines. The poolside patio is equipped with a grill and chimnea. The large kitchen is fully equipped and has a Mexican hand carved center island and plenty of cupboard space.

Down comforters, extra linens and everything you need is provided for the bedrooms. The large master bedroom has a ceiling fan, two closets and a private vintage bathroom with a large shower and tile bench. The master bedroom has a queen bed; two twins and another queen are in the other bedrooms. The second bath has a shower and full-size tub.

Other amenities include a TV/ VCR, CD player in the living room and TV in the master bedroom with basic cable TV, two car garage, washer, dryer, air conditioning, and central heating.

The house has the feel of being situated in the quiet countryside with beautiful desert and mountain views. Yet it is minutes away from all the city conveniences. Less than five minutes away is Tohono Chul Botanical Garden and Cultural Center, hosting birding, galleries, concerts and other cultural events. Casas Adobes center is minutes away with shopping, post office and fine dining. Foothills Mall, with theater, bookstores and shopping is only one mile. It is close to Tucson National Golf Course, Pima Canyon trailheads, and Catalina State Park, with easy access to Saguaro Park West and the world famous outdoor Desert Museum, Old Tucson, Ventana Golf Course and other area courses, and Sabino Canyon. Downtown Tucson and the University are about 10 miles where you can visit the fabulous Tucson Museum of Modern Art, many galleries, and the artist’s studio warehouse area. The museum offers guided tours through the historic district and barrios. Tucson’s Medicine Man Gallery hosts the largest collection of Maynard Dixon’s paintings and the at the University is the Center for Creative Photography that houses the Ansel Adams Collection of prints and negatives, as well as other contemporary collections and exhibits. The Northwest Medical Center is ½ mile away.

From the house you can walk to the neighborhood Mexican Restaurant or through the beautiful natural lush desert washes. This is a wonderful location for the perfect combination of nature and city. Coyotes, jackrabbits, woodpeckers, and other wildlife are abundant and frequent the yard. Perfect for Birders, Artists, Writers, and outdoor lovers!
