Downtown apartment description

Our beautifully renovated 5-room apartment is located in one of Tucson's oldest neighborhoods, just blocks from the Heart of Downtown Tucson. The historic, turn-of-the-century building, was built by the Railroad Comapny in 1907, and is loaded with plenty of Old-World Charm.

This 750 sq.ft. furnished rental offers something enchanting, private, and relaxing for yourself and your companion, & is a perfect retreat for business visitors, couples on vacation, and parents visiting students.

The fun and warmth of its five rooms come from an eclectic mix of Southwest, Mission, Old West & Mexican decor, reflecting the contrasting cultures that have blended in Tucson. Each room's unique decor boasts tall windows, transoms, crown moldings, ceiling fans, hardwood floors, and 10-ft.ceilings. The apartment is authentically inviting & comfortable, and furnished with modern conveniences, including wi-fi, CD player, flat screen TV & DVD player, thermostat-controlled air conditioners.

Armory Park has been undergoing major redevelopment as an Arts District during the past 10 years. In addition to an actual park and senior center center, the neighborhood houses the Theater of Music & Art, Tucson's Carnegie Library (now the Childrens' Museum), the Center for the Performing
Arts (in the old Catholic Church across the street), Beowulf Alley, and many galleries, shops, cafes, & restaurants.

Walking visitors can enjoy old homes in the 30-block Armory Park District, & in neighboring historic districts - the Old Barrio, El Presidio, & the Mansions of Main Street. There are organized walking tours of these areas as well.

The Tucson Community Center, downtown businesses & government buildings, the railroad station, the hub for Tucson's bus system, the Visitors Center and the Downtown YMCA are all located just blocks away. It is a few minutes-drive to the 4th Avenue Arts District, University of AZ Main Campus, Pima Community College, Z Mansion, the Stillwell House, & University Medical Center.


The rental is offered in compliance with section 3604(c) of the Federal Fair Housing Act (visit HUD.gov), which prohibits a discriminatory preference for a rental based on Race
or color, National origin, Religion, Sex, Familial Status, or Handicap/Disability.

                                  The neighborhood is as splendid as the apartment. Armory Park began as a military plaza in downtown Tucson, but in 1920, when the Transcontinental Rail Road reached Tucson, the area transformed into a residences inhabited by prominent Rail Road executives, affluent entrepreneurs, & working-class people. The neighborhood became a mix of Victorian, Tudor, Queen Anne, Spanish Colonial, Mission, & bungalow- style structures.

                                  This historical building is located just blocks from the Tucson Community Center, downtown businesses & government buildings, the railroad station, the hub for Tucson's bus system, and three culturally-rich historic neighboring districts filled with homes, museums, live theatre, shops, restaurants and churches. It is minutes away from the 4th Avenue Arts District, University of AZ Main Campus, Pima Community College, and the University Medical Center.

                                  The downtown location is perfect for work & play.
