NATURE AT IT'S BEST! Sit back, relax and enjoy Arizona's famous sunsets and our fabulous mountain views. Bird/wildlife lovers paradise. At the base of the Tortolita Mountains with fabulous views of Catalina Mountains also. HUGE WINDOWS THROUGHOUT. Ideal northwest Tucson location...7 miles East of Interstate 10; just east of Dove Mountain & newly opened Ritz Carlton, 20 minutes from airport. No neighbors nearby, but you are minutes from wonderful shopping, movies, restaurants, etc.

Enjoy our wraparound, covered patio with great views, gas BBQ and patio set. Beautifully landscaped property with a 'special' path leading to a peaceful setting where you'll find a bench next to a beautiful, sprawling, native mesquite tree, giant saguaro cactus & an arroyo(dry stream bed).
Hear the coyotes howl, see bobcats, big eared jack rabbits, gambel quail, road runners, cactus wrens, soaring red tail & harris hawks.... maybe even some nocturnal javalenas(pecary...looks like small wild pig).

Sorry, no smoking & no pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Casita Del Sol was built on our 10 acres, with it's garage and our home's garage facing each other for maximum privacy. Each home is on at least 5 acres. We are the owners, Larry & Claire Klingler. We love to travel around the world and also meet new people here at home. We hope you will come see us soon. We have a very unique setting, and private security gate(you will be given a remote for the gate and the garage).

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We are at the base of the Tortolita Mountains on the far Northwest side of Tucson. New shopping centers are being built minutes from us, but our only views, from high on a plateau, are of the Catalina & Tortolita Mountains, plus the gorgeous saguaro forest(cactus giants of our special Sonoran desert).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Because our property is on 10 acres and there are not many homes in our area, we get a tremendous amount of birds/wildlife. Javelina(pecaries), bobcats, fox, deer, jackrabbits, rock, roundtail and the antelope squirrels, coyote, roadrunners, and more....you may see gambel quail with their babies, or the flowering cacti if you are here at the right time of year. Our winter weather is savored by everyone, worldwide and our spring and fall seasons are fabulous. contact us with any questions you may have. We are very friendly and easy to talk to.
