Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Hi, I have lived in Tucson since 1987 in West University neighborhood. It is a very vibrant place, lots of fun and exciting things to do all within walking distance. Besides hosting new and interesting people, I am a blown glass artist, co-own a restaurant called Mother Hubbard's-great food!, and a Mom. I love to swim, practice yoga, river rafting, go for long walks or hikes, and work on new glass pieces when I can. Life is full and fun, especially with my daughter who loves the performing arts. Being a host has allowed me to meet lots of wonderful people, some of them becoming good friends. I am always happy to share my knowledge of Tucson, my favorite places and anything else that will enhance my guest's stay in the ol'Pueblo...

Why the Owner Chose West University:
I have always loves and lived in older homes. The construction is solid, unique, with great detailing that you don't normally find in newer buildings. I love the challenge of renovating places with good bones, preserving the old, and adding something new. This is a great neighborhood, West University, one of the oldest in Tucson!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The proximity to everything Tucson is a major plus. You can walk to most venues, and the rest are a short drive to get there. Easy access to I-10, walkability score of West University neighborhood is very high.
