Property description

The home is located in the Diamond Bell Ranch development 19 miles south of Tucson off of Hwy. 86. In the 1970's the ranch was divided into one and one half acre lots. This 2000 sq ft. home is nestled in the saguaro cactus and mesquite trees with spectacular views of Kitt Peak and the Baboquivari Mountain range.
Nearby attractions include the International known Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson, the National Observatory at Kitt Peak, the San Xavier Mission and many, many more.

The home is ideally located for walking, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding or just sitting and listening to the quiet. The wildlife is abundant in the mornings and evenings with breathtaking views of the endless night sky filled with stars.

In the flavor of the Wild, Wild, West - this home is decorated in western decor so come and kick off your boots and enjoy the southwest atmosphere.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

Why the Owner Chose Diamond Bell Ranch:
WE have always loved the Sonoran Desert and have visited for the last 25 years. We built a home in 2000 and have split our time between here and our other home in Oregon. This property came available in 2008 and we just had to incorporate it with our existing property

The Unique Benefits at this House:
WE enjoy the abundant sunshine and excellent weather that the desert offers. We enjoy the wild life that roams here. We also love the hiking and year round outside activities.
