Iron Horse Historic District house description

Tucson AZ vacation apartment in Restored historic 1800’s adobe house. Fully renovated and very comfortable. Lots of beautiful redwood trim, hardwood floors and 10 to 15 foot ceilings. Bedroom, den, sitting room, bath and kitchen fully equipped.

The house is centrally located in the historic Iron Horse Neighborhood within walking distance of the University of Arizona campus and to downtown and the historic 4th Avenue retail district.

The vacation apartment is comfortably furnished and includes a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with a queen sized bed, a beautiful restored sitting room with 12-15 foot beam ceiling, pine and redwood paneled Den with flat screen HDTV, internet-ready Sony box, satelitte direct TV cable, and DVD video library with as well as a Queen-sized sofa sleeper, and tiled bath with tub with massage water jets. Off-street parking is provided for compact vehicles as well as on-street parking directly in front of the house.

Pets are welcome and the property includes a small fully fenced private yard with granite patio.

The architectural style of the house is “Transformed Sonoran”, typified by high adobe wall construction with a framed peaked roof. The house was probably built originally as a “railroad house” to house Union Pacific railroad workers in the late 1800’s. Later the house was owned by the western photographer Albert S. Reynolds in the early 1900’s, and was kept in the family until 1987. We purchased the property in 2006 and spent several years restoring the house.

Note: Special restrictions apply for international visitors. Inquiries should include text (i.e. no blank e-mails) and a contact phone number.
