* i am not taking reservation for the 2014 Winter Season yet..please check back. Thank you! This lovely Tucson home is a 1700 square foot serene and spacious one bedroom Artist Retreat. The Genematas gem is located at the base of the Foothills in Tucson, Arizona and is available for rent for the upcoming Winter months.
No pets/ no smoking
The property is quiet and peaceful, located in the Genematas neighborhood, a collection of distinct and well-spaced homes set amongst the desert landscape, yet right off the main artery to downtown. Nestled on over an acre of Sonoran desert, this house is an ideal location for Tucson living. The neighborhood is just up the hill from both Trader Joes and Sprouts and just down the street from the luxurious La Encantada outdoor mall and fine food store AJ's. It is no more than a fifteen minute drive from Tucson's progressively growing downtown with many of Tucson's best restaurants and shopping along the way. Down the street is St Phillips plaza, a classy strip mall, with excellent eatery, access to Tucson's Rillito River bike paths and Arizona's largest farmers market on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
The house is decorated with Mexican adobe and Saltillo tile and comes completely furnished with old New Mexican bookshelves, chests, and sofas. The walls are decorated with Spanish Folk Art including beautifully colorful paintings of the owner's own experiences dancing Flamenco. The front door opens to a spacious and beautifully lit high-ceiling main room with large glass sliding doors bringing in abundant glowing light all day and overlooking breathtaking mountains and desert landscape. Many species of birds, including hawks and owls, make their way into the property and on several occasions there have been sightings of javelinas, coyotes, bobcats, roadrunners, snakes, and many other diverse fauna that make the Sonoran desert such a unique part of the country and the world. The main room has a gorgeous built in fireplace that, when lit on Winter nights, fills the whole house with a delicious warmth and peace.
The kitchen is very large and presents an ideal place for any food cooking or preparing. It comes fully equipped with pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, food processer, etc. Any questions about the kitchen, please contact owner. The master bedroom is very large with a queen sized bed, plenty of closet space, beautifully tiled bathroom with shower and tub, and an attached outdoor patio for sunbathing or light gardening. There is lots of space in the backyard for bonfires, grilling, and small get-togethers and there is even a trampoline for more motivated tenants.
This property would be ideal for a single artist or a calm, peaceful couple, looking for a quiet retreat that sits in a perfect location to all of Tucson's attractions. The house is serene and lovely, providing steady views of the closest mountain range and its many colors as the sun moves across the sky each day. A sunset's glow against the mountain is a truly cherished experience from this modest, yet elegant home.
