Barrio San Antonio house description

Why stay in a hotel room when you can Dwell here? 1100 SQF Furnished Modern loft home available for short term stays in Tucson Arizona. Located in the Lost Barrio 100 feet from the bike path that leads over the Basket Bridge and Snake Bridge, a five minute bike ride to down town, fourth avenue or the University of Arizona, (15 minutes on foot five minutes by car).

Great light fills this space with abundant sunshine, open loft style design, one large bedroom upstairs, one bath, large open space in the back room. Full kitchen, gas range, washer and dryer, dish washer, dishes, pans, toaster coffee maker, everything you need to feel at home. New construction just completed in the fall of 2008, central heating and air conditioning, recycled glass tile in the bathroom. Paved off street parking, phone, TV has Basic Cable and a stack of DVD's.

Starting with the original idea of building a loft home in the barrio, we designed and built this beautiful modern space. We live next door in the adjoining loft spaces, we are active hikers and bikers and have great knowledge of Tucson and what there is to do around here. We will be including all that information on loft website page, we are still getting that information up. If you're up for it we would be more than happy to take you on a hike or bike ride just let us know. We will also be listing all the best places to eat in the area on the web page. We have two bikes which are available for use, but you would need to bring your own helmet and gloves if you use those while riding, they are mostly just for cruising around the neighborhood. The web page linked bellow has more photos.

              Owner info

              About the owner: This is us when the walls were finished at 22 Feet, February 2008

              Why the Owner Chose Barrio San Antonio:
              My Brother and Sister and I built this building and live next door in similar loft style designed homes. We came up with the idea 15 years ago from similar loft units a block away, it has just taken us a while buy the property, get plans though the city and actually get them completed. We have another lot next door and will build 2 more buildings in the future. We love this neighborhood, its close to downtown and Fourth Avenue and the University of Arizona, Roma Imports an Italian Deli is two blocks away, we are North of the train tracks and Aviation Corridor so we are in a much better location than the Ice House Lofts. We are also close to the Barrio Brewery and the 17th. Street Market (15 minute walk) and eventually all that vacant land north from us is going to be turned into a new Pima County Park along Arroyo Chico with walking paths and ridding paths.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Close to downtown, so you are not sitting in traffic waiting like you do at home. Close to the U of A so every once in a while I pop down to the Center of Creative Photography and check out the new show or listen to a art, photography or architecture lectures around campus. The U of A also has many touring productions at Centennial Hall, has a Fine Art Museum, the State Museum, the Arizona Historical Society, well known Football and Basketball programs. I like to see live music so most of the good touring bands play at the Rialto Theater, Club Congress, Plush or the Red Room, these locations are 15 minutes away. The 17th. Street Market has high quality fresh produce and fresh fish there is also Safeway close by. At Roma Imports they make all these home made pasta dishes you can eat there or buy frozen pasta and bring it home to make it yourself, its all heat and eat food that tastes great, two blocks away. We used to eat there every day when we were building these places. Toolies is another restaurant that is really close by in the Lost Barrio area of South Park Avenue, they also opened another Toolies on Congress street. Between downtown and Fourth Avenue there has to be 20 to 30 really good restaurant all within 20 minutes of here and I'm not talking chain restaurants but really good places owned by local people.
