Surrounded by mature, flourishing desert vegetation--trees and cactus--and seasonal desert wildlife. Great for nature-lovers! Fenced in 3-acre ranch property with natural desert pathways all throughout. Totally private & secluded, off a dirt road, yet less than a mile from shopping center, grocery store w/Starbucks, drug stores/pharmacies, restaurants, bar, mail depot, banks, a library, gas stations, FastMed Urgent Care & the county Sheriff's Department. (This is a non-smoking property).

Conveniently located on the exclusive Northeast side of Tucson, near the foot of Mt. Lemmon. Easy access to the main surface streets of Tucson via E Tanque Verde Rd. Easy access to Mt. Lemmon via Catalina Hwy.

The Casita is just minutes from Sabino Canyon & Bear Canyon, which are perfect for sightseeing via walking, hiking or a narrated tram ride. Tucson is a 'hiker's heaven!' There are hiking guide books and day hike suggestions in The Casita. Excellent location for cyclists! Just down the road there's access to miles of newly paved bicycle paths. Close to beautiful Agua Caliente Park, perfect for picnics. Near Udall Park with paved walking track, dog park & indoor recreation center. 15 minutes from the iconic Gaslight Theater, Trail Dust Town, Park Place Mall, cinemas and numerous restaurants. 15 minutes from Saguaro National Park (with hiking, biking & horse trails, a paved 8 mile loop for a scenic drive or cycling, picnic areas and a free educational desert life video at the visitors center). 25 minutes from Colossal Cave. Close to several horse boarding stables on the East/Northeast side of Tucson. 10 minutes from Pantano Stables which offers group & private horseback trail rides. For U of A parents--20 mins/11 miles from the University of Arizona.

The Casita has gorgeous views of the Santa Catalina Mountains, Thimble Peak (a Tucson landmark) and Mt. Lemmon. Mt. Lemmon offers cooler temperatures, beautiful pine trees, a lake and recreational opportunities including numerous campgrounds, picnic sites and hiking trails amongst stunning terrain, gorgeous rock formations and scenic views. At the summit is Summerhaven, which has restaurants, gift shops, etc. Also at the 9,157' peak is an operating ski slope in the winter months (normally providing skiing & snowboarding from late December into March or April) and 'sky rides' on the ski lift in the summer months.

Closest public Golf Courses: Arizona National (4 miles away), Ventana Canyon, La Paloma, 49ers, Fred Enke, Del Lago, Randolph. Numerous other courses about 30 miles away: Starr Pass Country Club-Rattler (among Arizona's top 10 and the nation's top 100), Golf Club at Dove Mountain (designed by Jack Nicklaus & host of The World Golf Championships Accenture Match Play), The Gallery Golf Club at Dove Mountain (acknowledged as one of Golfweek's Best Modern Courses), Highlands at Dove Mountain (Arthur Hills design), Tucson National (home of the PGA tour), The Pines, Arthur Pack.

20 minutes from central Tucson's famous 4th Avenue historic shopping district with eclectic boutiques, shops and cafes. 20 minutes from La Encantada Plaza with upscale retail shopping and fine-dining.

The location feels as though it is miles away from civilization...a perfect private retreat! But once you drive back to the paved roads, it feels as though you have immediate access to everything metropolitan. Literally the perfect balance of Tucson's Old Pueblo rustic charm and the City of Tucson's modern conveniences in the Sonoran Desert!

Owner info

About the owner: The 'Summer Ranch' property has been owned by the current owner for over 30 yrs. It was purchased from a couple who had it built, but were never able to move in. So the owner is the only owner who has ever resided there. It was custom built in traditional Santa Fe style and the current decor is Southwestern.
