Old Fort Lowell cottage description

Charming Casita! This is a Romantic get-a-way. Mexican tile thru-out, Pine ceilings, new appliances, walk-in tiled shower.
We have a queen bed in the bedroom with plenty of closet space and doors with mirrors for that open feeling. Also a La-z-boy couch that pulls out to a queen bed as well. Very comfortable.
Imagine yourselves with a drink in your hand under the covered patio looking out onto the Catalina Mtns.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: Kelley and Nancy are from NORTH POLE ALASKA! (No kidding). We love to travel, and also have a passion for remodeling, Classic Cars, Magic and other Circus Skills. Kelley grew up in Southern California surfing and sailing. In 1970 Kelley sailed a 38 ft. Ketch to Hawaii and has been traveling ever since. Nancy my wife was a Dog Musher is Alaska for many, many years and once had as many as 50 dogs in her kennel. Nancy is now retired from the University of Alaska at Fairbanks and I still own a Specialty lumberyard in North Pole. (That is why we have a Ponderosa Pine Tongue and Groove ceiling in the Casita! (I love the warmth and coziness it provides).

                  Why the Owner Chose Old Fort Lowell:
                  This Casita been totally remodeled and now everything is new and up to date. This property is close to everything including SABINO CANYON for those who love the outdoors and hiking. Also within 1 mile of Tucson Medical Facilities for those in need of those services. Fine Dining is a 5 minute walk, as is Vera Amore Italian Food and live music outside sometimes,(Both places TOP RATED!) and fresh FRENCH pastries also a 5 minute walk. The British car club meets at the Starbucks on Grant and Swan on tuesday mornings at 8 A. M.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Spectacular Mexican tiled kitchen, with all new appliances for that Romantic get-a-way! This place is small but you will be in a World all your own when you walk in. Very comfy and cozy. Close to EVERYTHING! You'll love the warmth of the 1 x 6 T&G Pine ceiling. Everything in this home is the finest tile we could find. Great for Gem Show participants and plenty of parking off street in a quiet, slow paced neighborhood. Although, just a block from Grant and Swan cross-street. Lots of room for additional vehicles. Also room to park small vehicles inside a garage which is hard to find in Tucson. Situated on a large lot so you have room to move and sit on the patio and look at the Catalina Mtns. Starbucks just one block away as well for that morning coffee! :-) We do have a small dog run in the backyard for your cherished pets. The complete yard has a 4 foot block fence, but no gate on the driveway.
