Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Hi, and welcome to my site. I've been a Tucson since 1970 , when I left my childhood home in Chicago and came out here to go to the U of A. I bought this house when my daughter was born. It was a one bedroom, 2 bath home that was just sitting on the market waiting for someone to turn her into a family home. So as a real estate broker and general contractor I put my resources to work and 18 years later I completed the various remodels and additions that you see today. My daughters grown and living in Seattle today working for Microsoft, after she became a second generation U of A graduate. And me?? I'm still designing and remodeling homes in the Tucson area. Doing as much traveling as I can afford and enjoying life in the old Pueblo.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
As I had mentioned...18 years to complete the house. Now it wasn't always a construction site, but there were 3 major remodels and additions not to mention numerous face lifts. As a contractor I would build custom homes and remodels from vintage old homes to modern classics in the foothills. Every time I built something that was really fun, new and exciting, I'd end up duplicating it at my house. As I built the family dynamics changed. I became a single dad when my daughter was very young. and as she got older we needed more space between us, especially during those teen years; thus the 2nd master suite on the other end of the house. The kitchen was designed by me to be able to cook and entertain at the same time. I have owned a couple of restaurants in the Tucson area over the years and enjoy cooking and entertaining....a well thought out kitchen is what has evolved. The yard was designed around the mesquite trees. When I laid out the pool, the pool builder wanted me to remove all of the trees. He said that they would present a problem with cleaning and maintenance over the years...and was he ever right. But the beauty, coolness and accompanying plantings have thrived in this beautiful tranquil oasis.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The setting is not to be outdone. In the middle of a large mesquite bosque, located at the end of two roads, you'll feel like you've hit the trails end. The house affords the ability to have a large family get together with plenty of parking, plenty of private areas to get away, 3 and half baths with 150 gallons of hot water for all those showers,, dishes and clothes that will be washed...all in a park like setting in the desert. Indoor and an outdoor jetted tubs provide a spa like retreat.
