Oro Valley house description

Out the front door Rancho Vistoso Boulevard beckons with its walking trails and ready access to hiking in special canyons populated with sajuaros. Bicycle paths line the boulevard and several local restaurants are an easy 3 mile bike ride from the house. The garage includes room for parking one car and private access to an elliptical machine, special Total Gym weight system and a TV.
Enjoy a tranquil oasis in the desert while sitting poolside watching the mountain backdrop at sunset as the colors turn from pink to purple and the stars brighten the sky!
This home is cozy enough for two but offers room and amenities for family and friends. The three bedrooms are separated from each other and have their own bathroom. Two have private access to the yard separate TVs. The master suite includes a roomy bedroom and sitting area with a queen tempurpedic mattress with massage options and elevation for head and legs. The master bathroom is newly remodeled with a walk in shower and therapeutic tub adjacent to a double walk in closet.
For those who like to cook, there is a new kitchen with double ovens, gas cooktop, microwave, fridge and dishwasher as well as an array of small appliances. Two can dine at the elevated granite countertop near the sliding glass doors to the yard or use the dining room which has comfortable seating for eight. The living room is furnished with a leather sofa and loveseat offering comfortable recliner seating. A stacked stone gas fireplace warms the room on chilly evenings. The sound system supports a 37 inch TV with blue ray DVD and a carousel CD system.
The large backyard faces north onto a wash and offers a panoramic view of the Catalina mountains. A ramada with special lighting and outdoor speakers to allow music to fill the air includes a private spa that can seat up to six people with specially designed jets for necks and backs. A propane fire pit warms brisk evenings adjacent to the 14 x 32 foot pool with an electric cover that offers the gentle sound of running water with six fountains. The pool can be heated for an additional fee. A special outdoor kitchen area includes a propane gas grill with plenty of serving space and ready access to several citrus trees laden with lemons and limes.
The home is an easy ride to area attractions and only 45 minutes from the Tucson airport and less than two hours from the Phoenix airport.

Pool has a gas heater and an electric cover to preserve heating. Cost of heat varies based on air temps and desired warmth of the pool.

Grocery stores are 3.3 miles from the house and specialty groceries with great produce, fish, chicken and healthy items are just over 5 miles away.

Restaurants are fantastic; we frequent locally owned and operated restaurants that include Italian, greek/seafood, Japanese, Mexican and more traditional food options. There is also an abundance of chain restaurants. We frequent Rubio Baja Grill about 4 miles from the house for their fresh Mexican and excellent fish tacos and great salads with great outdoor seating at the base of Pusch Ridge.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We moved to Arizona nearly 20 years ago from Connecticut and have enjoyed owning several properties. This one is our favorite for its privacy, views and the amenities we have incorporated.

                      Why the Owner Chose Oro Valley:
                      This property is on the corner of Rancho Vistoso providing ready access to walking and bicycling. It neighbors a wash and only has one house next to it making it especially quiet and private with lots of visits from cardinals and other birds as well as wildlife.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We fell in love with this property because the views of the mountains from the front and back yard are incredible providing a sense of peacefulness any time of the day.
