Vail house description

When you reach the desert getaway home you will find that you are half way up the mountainside with a mountain backdrop and a valley view. The valley view is miles of Sonoran desert with a faint view of an occasional train at the bottom of the valley. At night, you see some lights from Corona de Tucson some fifteen miles away. The back of the ranch is straight up the mountainside.

Located next to Colossal Cave Park and Saguaro National Park in Vail, AZ (20 miles) outside Tucson, this truly is the Sonoran Desert to perfection. The rocky mountainside with gigantic saguaros and other cactus engulfing it makes it “incredibly unique”. Just completed: 600 sq. ft. deck complete with jacuzzi. Just the view is worth the price of admission.

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Connie and I (early 50's)grew up in Tucson and are High school sweethearts. I own and operate Creative Ventures, a gift store in Tucson. Connie owns and operates a dance studio for dancers of all ages. The picture is from our 30th class of '74' High school reunion. Go Amphi Panthers!

                  Why the Owner Chose Vail:
                  We love Tucson, but wanted to be able to get away to see bright stars at night, relax with a view, listen to only the noise of wildlife and enjoy each other..

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The stars, desert, view, jacuzzi, hiking and relaxing. Walking through Colossal Cave Park and hiking the Arizona Trail.
