Private Homes house description

This charming old property, in Central Tucson, decorated with art, offers a private little paradise in the heart of Tucson.

Sit on the front porch and enjoy the view of the Catalina Mountains, or take a dip in the luxurious stone-decked pool. The saguaros and mediterranean trees and roses invite birds of all sorts to this quiet natural sanctuary, where all the best Tucson attractions are at your fingertips. Also enjoy the luxury beds inside designed for a perfect sleep.

Ideally located just minutes from the University of Arizona, La Paloma and Lowes Ventana golf courses, Reffkin Tennis Center, Gem Show and Spring Training venues, it is also close to some of the city’s best restaurants and shopping places.

Select grocery shopping at the Rincon Market /AJ's/Trader Joe's and the city’s best farmers’ market at St. Phillips Plaza, upscale dining options include Vivace, Hacienda del Sol and Acacia restaurant. And local favorite El Corral. Don't miss the antiques on Country club ..., and Sammy's Sonoran hot dog stand at Country Club and Grant.

Perfect for families with children. The property is entirely walled with a six foot fence and remote controlled steel entry gates. The large pool, big enough for laps, is designed to safety codes with surrounding fence and closing child-proof (5 and under) gate.

Convenient, affordable, and accessible day care options within ten minutes of address.

Night-life at the historic Hotel Congress, Rialto Theater and Centennial Hall’s fine arts performances will keep you more than entertained. When you’re ready for adventure, take a day trip to Mt. Lemmon, Sabino Canyon or Saguaro National Park.

You will love the confort, privacy, and convenience of this wonderful Tucson vacation getaway.

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Tucson is our escape from cold and rainy northern climates. We enjoy it all year round. Christmas, Spring, even the hot summer!

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          We love the convenient central location of this property and the magic of the house and grounds. The footprint of the property is almost an acre, and to find a lot that big is rare in central Tucson. The house was part of an old artist's community built in the early 40's when literally nothing was around. The 150-200 year old saguaros which tower in the garden were there though, and the four of them on the property are rare. The property is completely fenced/walled, and sits up on a little hill from the street. From street level the top of the fence is almost 9 feet! So its very private and has the great, unobstructed mountain views.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The very large lot with mature desert landscaping make this home a relaxing private retreat. We were able to build an oversized pool area because of the large lot. The entry gates make for maximum privacy and easy exit/entry. We hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.
