                          On bike and bus route. Beach cruiser bikes available for rent with baskets, helmets, and locks. Tucson in top-ten friendliest biking communities, April 2010 'Bicycling Magazine'

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: I am a native Tucsonan, small business owner and broadcast television captioner. My husband is a retired municipal firefighter. We've been married 28 years and counting! He's the best thing that ever happened to me!

                          Why the Owner Chose Poets Corner:
                          This is the perfect central Tucson location! A great neighborhood with street lights where people walk with their children and dogs in the evening or bike to one of several nearby restaurants. So close to shopping, theaters, golf, tennis, zoo, fitness track. We used to live on the outskirts of town but we feel so much more connected to our community living in midtown. Tucson is a great town; big enough to be interesting and vibrant, small enough to be friendly, and Poet's Retreat captures it all.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This property truly embodies Southwestern Desert living. Whether you spend time indoors or out, it's our climate that draws people to the Sonoran Desert. We wanted our visitors to enjoy an 'authentic' desert experience in the modern day.
