Oro Valley house description

Out the front door Rancho Vistoso Boulevard beckons with its special walking and bicycling 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 and 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 spa like master bathroom includes a large walk in shower with hand held, a therapeutic soaking tub and double sinks with private access through a pocket door to a double walk in closet.
For those who like to cook, there is a specially designed 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 comfortably seats eight at the large round table. The living room is furnished with a leather sofa and loveseat with recliner seating. A stacked stone gas fireplace warms the room on chilly evenings. The sound system supports a 37 inch Sharp 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 allows music to fill the air. A private spa usable year round seats up to six people with specially designed jets for necks and backs. A propane fire pit warms brisk evenings with comfortable seating with mountain views. The 14 x 32 foot pool has an electric cover to maintain heat and reduce debris offering gentle sounds of running water with six fountains. The pool can be heated during cooler months 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 along with black mission figs.
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.

The property is located northwest of Tucson in close proximity to many events including the Omni El Conquistador golf tournament, the international gem and mineral show, the Tucson rodeo, a Mariachi conference and 4th Avenue Street Fairs - to name a few. Numerous art galleries, restaurants, museums, and festivals are an easy drive. The home is located adjacent to Rancho Vistoso Blvd. which is specially designed for runners, bicyclists, and walkers. Honey Bee Canyon is perfect for hiking year round and is only .1 mile from the house.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: In 1999, we moved to Arizona from Connecticut and have enjoyed owning several properties in this beautiful state. Our home at 817 E. Hickman Drive 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 specially designed walking and bicycling facilities. The property neighbors a wash and has only one house next to it making it particularly quiet and private with lots of visits from cardinals and other birds as well as wildlife. It is close to several beautiful parks with tennis courts, basketball courts, playsets, and a great dog park.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this property because the panoramic views of the mountains from the front and back yard are incredible providing a sense of peacefulness any time of the day and particularly at sunset when the mountains turn shades of pink and purple. On nights with a full moon this is a special place to enjoy a special drink or a cup of tea while watching the moon rise up behind the mountains evolving with a beautiful glow. The neighborhood is a delightful mix of families and retirees enjoying each other and the array of special events Oro Valley and Tucson have to offer.
