                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: My name is Jen Richardson and I am your primary contact. I am an attorney with 14 years of experience and the mother of 2 children - Madeline - 10 and William - 6. My husband, Bill, and I moved from central Tucson to our current home in northwest Tucson in February 2009. We have lived in Tucson for over 15 years and both of us went to the University of Arizona. We have two dogs - Cowboy and Ginger - who are very friendly and enjoy life in the AZ Sonora desert. Bill is an electrical engineer in the solar field. Madeline is beginning 6th grade and William is beginning 1st grade.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We enjoy renting out properties. We own and manage two vacation rentals in central Tucson in addition to the guest house located on our property. When we bought our house we thought it was the perfect location for people visiting Tucson and the guest house located next door to our home seemed like an excellent vacation rental. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world and have had wonderful experiences getting to know our guests. We respect the privacy of our guests and do not allow our children or dogs to be close to the guest house and the way our home is set up it's easy to offer our guests privacy and peace and quiet.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The Abington Guest House is 100% powered by the Arizona sun. Our large solar field (located at the east end of the property) generates all the electrical power used by the guest house.
