Property description

Rate reduction for the summer months.
This home sits on an east/west facing corner lot within a 5 minutes walk to the clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, and state of the art workout facilities. This is a two bedroom 2 bathroom home with 1650 feet of an open, light floor plan. The built in gas BBQ off the back patio is adjacent to a screened-in Arizona room. The front, walled, courtyard faces the east and is bathed in morning sunshine. The back patio and BBQ faces the west, and the evening
sunsets.

The spacious master bedroom has a queen sized bed and private bathroom. The guest bedroom has two single beds and private bath. All furnishings are new with vintage/antique accents.

As my guest you can enjoy discount golf and access to all the amenities in The Highlands for the duration of your stay. The Grill, an onsite restaurant, serves breakfast on Sunday mornings, as well as lunch, happy hours, and dinners each night. Dine in the beautiful outdoor patio with majestic views of the Tucson Mountains to the west and the city center of Tucson directly south. The Highlands is minutes to the Ritz Carlton and home to the Accenture Golf Tournament. The Spa at the Ritz Carlton was recently voted number 3 in the nation by Conde Naste Travel Magazine. Also you are only minutes to the Tortilla Trail Head and miles of class A, B, C, and D level hiking trails.

The beautiful Highlands Golf community is a gated, secure, active adult community tucked into the foothills of the Tortilla Mountains where your hopes for a relaxing winter in Arizona can be realized.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I have spent the last 10 years teaching exceptional students in the international cities of Budapest, Cairo, and Bogota. I love travel and experiencing the traditions and culture of other countries. I chose Tucson as my home base because of the international flavor it offers, its history and proximity to Mexico, giving it the rich diversity of a multi-cultural community. Last summer I sold a rental property in Washington and reinvested in this property in The Highlands. I live in an adobe home on an acre of horse property only 10 minutes from The Highlands, so I can meet you personally and help to orient you on all that the Tucson area has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Marana:
You will love the scenic location of The Highlands, tucked into the base of the Tortilita Mountains with magnificent views of the Catalina Mountains to the east and the Tucson Mountains to the west. Giant saguaro welcome you as you drive up Dove Mountain Road into the gated, active retirement community. All utilities are included: high speed internet, unlimited national phone calls, and more TV channels that you can watch on a new Samsung flat screen TV. Tucson offers activities that draw world wide travelers: first and foremost is the mild, winter weather. Also enjoy the International Gem Show, Western Rodeo, Art Museums, art shows, The University of Arizona with elite sports and academic offerings. Tucson is considered one of the most bike friendly cities int he United States with miles of designated bike lanes as well as an internet of bike paths along the washes that allow you hundreds of miles of exploration. Tour de Tucson attracts recreational to professional bikers each November. With 360 days of sunshine, the Tucson area encourages outdoor activities to enrich your mind and rejuvenate your spirit.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As my guest, you can take advantage of the multitude of activities that The Highlands has to offer. In addition to the obvious, golf (at a discount) and tennis, enjoy water volleyball, Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Mahjong, Yoga, numerous card groups, book clubs, hiking club, on site restaurant, the Ritz Carlton restaurants and spa just 2 miles up the hill, and all the beautiful Tortilita Mountain scenery.
