Case de Campana is located in the Tortolita Mountains foothills at the northern part of the greater Tucson area and adjacent to the Dove Mountain resort community including the Dove Mountain, Gallery and Heritage golf clubs and Ritz Carlton resort.
Only a short drive away are major Tucson area attractions including Mount Lemmon, Biosphere2, The Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson, University of Arizona, and many great area golf clubs. Other nearby popular pursuits include hot air ballooning, off-road excursions, and mountain and desert hiking. Dove Mountain, the site of the annual Accenture Match Play professional golf tournament is only minutes away.
Close enough for day trips from Casa de Campana, historic Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns, Tubac arts community, Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Observatory, and the Arizona Wine Country are all popular visitor destinations.
Situated on a private lane of 3+ acre properties, Casa de Campana itself affords a great Sonoran Desert experience including an abundance of desert plants/trees, cactus, birds (including mourning doves, night hawks, hummingbirds, ...) and desert animals such as javelinas, coyotes, and deer. The property's natural setting and privacy will be appreciated by all, but convenience is not sacrificed with restaurants, shopping and other services less than 5 minutes away.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We purchased this property after falling in love with Southern Arizona, its desert beauty, and the wonderful year-round weather. We hope to retire to the Tucson area and to Casa de Campana in the future. For now, we enjoy visiting as often as possible, taking in the weather and desert wildlife, and preparing Casa de Campana for guests to enjoy hopefully as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Marana: This property was chosen due to its uniqueness, privacy, and tranquil setting in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. After an extensive on-line and in-person search, this home (later to be named Casa de Campana – or ‘The Bell House’) was the clear choice for many factors that hopefully guests will experience and come to love for themselves.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The unique benefits of this property include wonderful neighbors who equally value this pristine desert setting, abundant privacy and open space, many custom details inside and out, and the overall peacefulness of the setting. Many guests have commented that their time at Casa de Campana was like a retreat at their own personal, private resort.
