Sam Hughes house description

Nestled into the historic Sam Hughes neighborhood, our casita is a delightful, large separate home just three blocks from U of A. Casita Gardenia is located on the quiet limited access 3rd Street promenade, the main bicycle and walking route to the University. This limited access neighborhood of historic homes and beautifully landscaped streets is a very unique neighborhood. It’s a comfortable walk to the University, eateries and neighborhood pubs…so unusual for Tucson.

Our Casita, built as the original separate servants quarters, is located in the large beautifully landscaped back yard of a 1924 home that is listed on the National Historic Register. It is three blocks from McHale Arena, six blocks from the University Medical Center and two miles from historic downtown Tucson. It is so close to so much of what Tucson has to offer.

This two-story casita has two large bedrooms upstairs with a full 'Jack and Jill' bathroom. Each bedroom has double French doors leading to a New Orleans style balcony overlooking a large pool, spa and private outdoor dining area.

The fully furnished full kitchen, eating area and tastefully furnished living room is all you will need to feel right at home for a weekend, week or several months. It is comfortable, quiet living inside and out.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We are recent transplants from Seattle, WA. The sun and friends drew us to this area. We love the desert and are excited to experience the environs. Joel is a Professor of Architecture and Wendi's career is in health care management, specifically child psychiatry.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sam Hughes:
                  While considering a move from beautiful Seattle, we knew it had to be the right place for us to leave. The quaint charm of the property and beautifully landscaped yard, along with the historic neighborhood and location, made the decision for us.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The historic neighborhood, beautifully landscaped yard, pool, spa and private outdoor dining area are a magnificent setting for this charming, well furnished casita.The New Orleans style balcony gives you a bird's eye view of all the property has to offer, including the Catalina Mountains. It is a delightful, private oasis conveniently located in the heart of Tucson.
