In a quiet, unassuming, neighborhood in the Santa Catalina Foothills lies a small jewel of a home. One of the Southwest's leading interior designers created this as her own residence and lived here for more than a decade. The home has been featured on the Tucson 'Opera Dames' home tour and in the Tucson Lifestyle Magazine. Recently totally refurbished, this beautiful property is now available for vacation rental.
Though only 1600 square feet, the clever design makes the house seem larger. Using the concept of a New York loft apartment as the inspiration, the master bedroom is separated from the living areas by a travertine and mirror, dual-sided, fireplace. To one side of the master bedroom area is a bathroom featuring a large, walk-in shower. To the other side is a small sitting alcove with floor to ceiling views into a natural desert orroyo. Here, it is not unusual to see members of the desert wild community - gambel quail, cardinals, javelina, and bob-cats - as one sips morning coffee. Adjacent, is an enormous walk-in closet.
A well designed compact kitchen features black granite counters, European, whisper-quiet dishwasher and integrated smooth top oven. The great room contains a formal sitting area features two comfortable down-filled couches in front of the fire place, while on the opposite wall a 42 inch flat screenTV is set up with cable, DVD, CD, and am/fm radio. A library of videos and music is provided. Adjacent to the front entry way is a dining area and, beyond this, a smaller seating area for relaxing with a drink and a book. This area also contains a desk, space for a lap top for those vacationers who just cannot leave work behind. An additional bedroom with full-size bed suitable for overnight guests is off this seating area. A second full bath is accessed both from this room and the living areas.
A private outdoor courtyard can be reached from both the living and guest rooms. Again, clever design turns a small area into a relaxing outdoor retreat; a soothing fountain runs down rocks, a metal sculpture echoes the many armed saguaro cactus on the adjacent hills and the area is bathed in sunlight much of the day.
Despite the peace and serenity of the location, within five minutes walk is a comprehensive shopping center with supermarket, drug store, two speciality bakeries, three dry cleaners, and eight restaurants! Within a five mile radius lie some of the southwest’s most prestigious resorts each with their signature five star restaurants; Loew’s Ventana Canyon is a mile away to the north, the Westin La Paloma Resort is less than four miles away to the west. For the nature lover, the famous Sabino Canyon recreation area is just a mile away to the east. Here, trails into the Catalina State Park range from easy to challenging. For the golfer, the famous Trent designed Ventana Country Club 36 hole course is literally just up the road.
