              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: We were renters in Green Valley for 10 years, before recently purchasing this great, view oriented home. We are Oregon residents, and spend the summers in the 'last frontier...Alaska'. We have owned rental properties for over 40 years, and respect a tenants privacy and goodwill, along with the accountability that they respect our homes. Many renters have become friends through the years!!

              Why the Owner Chose San Ignacio Heights:
              Coming from the great Pacific Northwest, there were not many options to enjoy staying/living in another environment as versatile and beautiful. But, after retirement, and the desire to have sunshine/warm weather, at least part of the winter, this high desert has been absolutely incredible for our needs.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This bright, high vaulted ceiling, east facing view home, is just large enough for entertaining, comfort, easy access to highways to Tucson, Tubac, even Nogales, and the quiet lifestyle GV allows. The airport access is great. The community has so many options/diversions you want to try them all!
