Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Northeast transplants for 10 years. Love the desert and can assist you in enjoying all that Tucson area has to offer. Owners have a mobile wood fired, brick oven pizza business. Private pizza parties, or gourmet brick oven dinners can be arranged.

Why the Owner Chose Tortolita:
Leave the snow and cold weather behind and enjoy the enchantment of the most lush desert in the world, the Sonoran desert. Our property is a mixture of natural desert landscape and groomed low water use plants. There are walking trails around our lot, with connections to acres of desert and a 'wash'. The area is abundant with native animals. A great bird watching area. Gorgeous sunsets right out the front door.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Breath taking views of the Catalina, Tucson and Tortolita mountains. Very private. Brick oven on request (if available).
