Property description

Privacy abounds in this centrally located, gated, downtown Tucson, three bedroom, three bath home. The'split floorplan' means each of the three bedrooms is in its own wing; which is perfect for larger groups or guests seeking spaciousness. Two living rooms, one with a fireplace and extra sleeping area makes it so up to 8 people can stay here comfortably. The generous kitchen with restored retro stove makes cooking a treat. A marvelous master suite with delicious details and lavish claw foot tub that you will never want to leave! For your ultimate comfort, each room's climate can be individually set. Enjoy the best of outdoor/indoor living, as most rooms have their own patio...so you can find your favorite spot. Or start and end your day sloughing your cares away in the spa. Come, relax, and delight in your home away from home in downtown Tucson!

This property was the owner's family homestead for two generations. Built of adobe and expanded over time, the property boasts awesome architectural, wood work and stained glass details. There even is a 'truth' window where you can see the adobe for yourself.

Within walking distance are numerous restaurants, bars, galleries, museums, and on weekends farmer's markets. The modern streetcar (light rail system) will take you to the 4th Avenue/University of Arizona.

Tucson - aka the Old Pueblo - offers you many lovely days for golf, hikes, cycling, birding, live theater, museums, opera, visiting the: Desert Museum, Old Tucson, botanical gardens, Kartchner Caverns...or just soaking up the sun!

Enjoy Tucson's varied cuisine through our wonderful selection of restaurants. Drive northeast to Mount Lemmon in the Catalina Mountains for hiking, mountain biking, cycling, rock climbing, spelunking, or just lazying around in cooler weather. To the south is the artist's enclave of Tubac, and, even further south, an hour's drive puts you in Mexico for a day of shopping in Nogales, Sonora or half an hour more and it can be Tombstone or Bisbee!

Plan on visiting the Gem show, 4th Avenue Street Fair, Rodeo, USTA Championship, Accenture PGA golf, spring training, Colossal Cave, the Biosphere, Sabino Canyon, downtown Tucson, the University of Arizona, and SO much more. There truly is something for everyone.

Come enjoy for yourself, then you can say you've experienced the 'dry heat!'

Car: Recommended

Downtown Tucson, located near the University of Arizona, is the perfect small urban town. There are plenty of activities downtown to keep you entertained for days or, even, weeks. Should you choose to venture further, Southern Arizona is chock full of places to visit: Tubac, Tombstone, Bisbee, Biosphere, Tohono Chul Park, Desert Museum, Mount Lemmon, the Foothills, Degrazia Gallery of the Sun, missions - Tumacacori and San Xavier del Bac, dozens of golf courses, plenty of flora and fauna, birding, or tons of hiking/riding trails.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1991

About: Shawn, the owner, and Evelyn, the property manager, teamed up to set up this vacation rental for you. Evelyn is a REALTOR and property manager in Tucson AZ. Vacation home property management is one of her specialties because she revels in providing 'old fashioned customer service with new fangled tools.' That means you will receive courteous and prompt attention from your first inquiry through your departure and return stays. Like you, when she travels, Evelyn enjoys staying in vacation home rentals too. For that reason she has the 'Evelyn standard,' which means you will have no trace from the prior guest(s), beds are made the same way with hospital corners and plenty of pillows, matching sets of sheets/towels/furniture/kitchenware, and well equipped (or stocked) homes. As items show wear or break they get replaced and/or fixed immediately; like that the vacation homes she manages are always in tip-top shape. When you rent from Evelyn, you'll have a super clean, very comfortable, and well coordinated house to call home for the duration of your stay!

Why Downtown:
Shawn's father owned the property before him and is responsible for the rich woodwork, stained glass windows, and abundance of details. In the time he's owned it, Shawn continued his father's work and created the private oasis it is now so that you may fill it with more happy memories.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is an adobe home a classic southwestern building material that is rarely used nowadays. A 'truth' window in the house shows the adobe brick wall. Each room can be set to its own temperature to satisfy everyone preferred temperature. The downtown location is perfect for the health conscious. Walkers, runners, and cyclists can step out the door and go in any direction. Hikers, trail runners, or mountain bikers are a 10 minute drive from the nearest trailhead!
