Property description

This is our renovated dream home on the outskirts of Tucson, created in 2012 with a top design team, using antiques and art collected around the world. You enter the hacienda via a planted courtyard with a working fountain (stairs to our viewing porch: you can see the Catalinas, the Rincons, and the Downtown Lights from the porch, which is ideal for an intimate wedding service). Front door opens on enclosed Arizona room, now a breakfast room overlooking the living room. Five private bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms (one ensuite), family room/dining room complex, chef's open kitchen with brand new appliances, sunken living room featuring beehive gas fireplace, patios, terraces, and a private pool for just our compound. Magazine quality interior, but comfortable, artsy, and welcoming, with the sophistication of the world, and the comfort of southern Arizona. Stunning art and decorations; house features amazing concrete and antique tile floors and bathrooms (literally) hand crafted for respite and wellness. High-tech security system for added peace of mind. If you're looking for an escape, quality family time, 'Two Bird' is your destination.

Car: Necessary

A ten-minute drive from all the amenities and some decent local cafes and restaurants, but completely self-contained. Safeway Online will deliver! Enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen, outdoor BBQ, etc. The kitchen is stocked with everything a cook needs and there is flatware and plates, etc. for a dinner party for 16. The dining room table seats eight (extra leaf to under master bed) and there is a second table for four in Arizona room. House truly houses 10-12 luxuriously, since our den is a private room and we offer a new blow up queen-sized bed and linens to make it a bedroom.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We're a PR pro and a law school professor, and this is our dream home renovated in 2012-2013. Someday it will be our primary residence. Today, it's an oasis from our life in New York City. Here is a picture of all of us in San Juan, taken a few summers ago.

Why the Owner Chose Omni Tucson National Golf Resort & Spa:
This $200,000 plus renovation injected the highest quality style into what had been a rundown property owned by the actor Gary Shandling. We renovated it back to be better than ever. It's at peace with nature, rambling over nearly 5000 sq. feet indoors (and more when you count covered terraces), yet it feels manageable and homey. The views are majestic: Catalinas on one side and the Rincons on the other. The house is cool and warm at the same time, private but close to the city and the mountains. There are up to five private bedrooms; the fifth one is a by day but we have a blow up queen sized bed.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This rural property is 8 minutes from Tanque Verde's shopping and 20 minutes from the University of Arizona, no more than 30 minutes from the Foothills (read: premium shopping). The national park is a bike ride (1 mile). But why would you ever leave the house, with a pool, trails, and views that seduce and property that rambles? You can hear horses, and the odd coyote. We promise you it is truly desert chic, in ways you have to live it to understand it.
