                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: My husband and I are Minnesotans. We never really thought about vacationing in Arizona until our two daughters moved to Tucson and Phoenix. We love Tucson! It has mountain ranges in all directions. We love to hike Catalina State Park or other closeby hiking trails. As real estate investors, we realized Tucson was a smart investment area, and we can help you invest in the Phoenix/Tucson areas. Our home is peaceful with gorgeous views- very private, yet centrally located. We look forward to your visit to our home. We love it here and we know you will too. We love the views from the sun room and the back yard while sitting in the sauna, hot tub, or just sitting at the patio table. There are also city lights and gorgeous sunsets to be seen! A very private setting. We hope you decide to stay with us, because you will want to come back on your next vacation!

                  Why Oro Valley:
                  All of Tucson has mountain views but this home looks like it's tucked in to the mountain. If you are looking for a vacation near Tucson sites, this home is just a few blocks over the Oro Valley line, which makes it central to everything. We love the mountain views from the living room or the sun room or office and Master bedroom. It feels as though we are in the country up here. It is extremely tranquil- hear the coyotes at night -

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love the views from the back yard or the front yard - three mountain ranges can be seen. The house is extremely comfortable- complete with an Arizona room, plus a private den/office. Inside- modern bamboo floors. Comfortable Furnishings- love the master bed- better than the one in my own home! Fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need. You will love staying here... If tranquility, nature, and mountains are what you are looking for in a place for your next vacation, then look no further. The backyard oasis is completely fenced and has two flagstone patios, a ramada complete with hot tub and infrared sauna. Grill away on the portable gas grill located just off the main patio with dining table and two chaise lounge chairs. For those evening campfires, there's a portable fire pit for your use- horseshoes for some competitive play, along with a ladderball game for more outdoor activity. If you want to see birds, merely hang a seed bell from the last Palo Verde tree by the cedar rail fence, or hang another one between the rails, and in a day or two you will be amazed at all variety of birds, including Quail, you will have attracted. Rancho is truly a wonderfully comfortable home- quiet surroundings, breathtaking mountain views with nature abounding- plus, convenient to all activities, shopping, the back way to Phoenix. Our hope is that once you stay at 'Rancho' you will want to come back again and again- whether for a family gathering for a holiday week, or great for cycling enthusiasts, or snow birds looking for a longer stay... you'll love 'Rancho' for your retreat. We do accept well behaved dogs, so you may bring your pet friend/children with you!(some restrictions may apply.) Beauty, peaceful surroundings, comfort, and location are key components to 'Rancho's' appeal. Book early so as not to be disappointed.
