Our home is located in Oro Valley in a secluded, quiet neighborhood. The house has beautiful views of both the Catalina and Tucson mountains and is a perfect place to relax. It is a 30 minutes drive from the must see, Sonoran Desert Museum and minutes from hiking in the Catalinas. Also just a 20 minute drive from the house, is The University of Arizona Campus where you can enjoy a basket ball game or walk around campus. Quite close to U of A is downtown where you can visit the Fox Theater for a show, Etherton Gallery for some art and out to some great food at such places as the famous original El Charro - the inventor of the chimichanga. Although if you're hankering for El Charro, but don't want to make a night of it downtown, there's a location just south of the house in the same plaza as the most wonderful grocery store Sprouts. Sprouts has the best produce with unique organic options at extremely reasonable prices.

The house is close enough to everything you'd want to see, but far enough away that you feel like you're in your own private desert world!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: I am a family physician who lives and owns a practice in Claremont, NH. Claremont is a rural area of New Hampshire located just across the Connecticut River from Vermont.

Why Oro Valley:
I have live in New Hampshire for 25 years and raise my family there, I grew up in Tucson and my mother lived there until she passed in 1992. Tucson was always a place I brought my family to visit my mother and enjoy the beauty of the desert. After my mother passed, we decided to build this home so we could continue to enjoy Tucson regularly. Because of this home allowed us to continue enjoying Tucson as my children grew up, I was able to instill a love for Tucson in my children so much that even daughter Erin moved to Tucson in 2006 and lived there until 2011. She now lives in Scottsdale, but takes care of my home for me and will be your primary contact during your stay.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The house is nestled in a cul-de-sac amongst views of the Catalina and Tucson Mountains. It is a very quiet house. The house is the perfect set up for either a quiet evening at home or a party with friends.
