If you would like to be in the sun every day with activities such as bird-watching, hiking, tennis, and golfing at your fingertips, take advantage of this newly listed and competitively priced townhouse located in a 55+ golf course subdivision of Green Valley (there are actually 4 golf courses in the immediate area!).
Green Valley is 25 minutes south of Tucson International Airport. While in Green Valley, a trip to the art-hub Tubac takes just 20 minutes to get there while a scenic destination such as Madeira Canyon takes 30 minutes. The Sonoran Desert Museum is a bit longer drive but worth it for those interested in viewing wildlife in their own habitat. With 300+ days of sun per year and an elevation of 2,900 feet, Green Valley offers dry and mild winters perfect for outdoor activities and day trips.
The desert casita is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath townhome just under 600 square feet with a private patio that faces a putting green of a neighboring golf course. It is a quiet area easily accessible from I-19 and of close proximity to a major shopping center and other conveniences.
Parking: As a senior-friendly single-story casita, guests have one covered parking space just paces from the front door.
Living Room: The living room is considered 'open' and a table and four chairs for dining on one side and a large couch on the other. The couch can be unfolded into a queen size hide-a-bed in case guests have visitors or need an extra place to sleep. There is a 32' flat screen TV which comes with basic cable, Wi-Fi internet, and a DVD player with select movies for guests to watch. In addition, there is a stereo with an iPod docking station.
Kitchen: The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, cooking utensils, and dishware. A skylight gives excellent lighting.
Bedroom: The bedroom contains a comfortable, extra-firm king size bed that can be separated into two singles, if preferred. There is an overhead fan for air circulation and extra linens and blankets in the closet and bottom dresser drawers, respectively.
Bathroom: The recently updated bathroom with skylight has a sit down shower with easy access and a grab bar for safety.
Patio: The patio has a table and chairs (seats 4) as well as a gas grill. A small washer/dryer is located in the patio shed.

About the owner: I am originally from Fairbanks, Alaska while my husband, Ian, is from Blackpool, England. Our backgrounds are nutritional sciences/dental hygiene and software engineering, respectively. We presently live in Tucson although we may consider Green Valley in another 15 years (need to be 55, at least :)
Why the Owner Chose Desert Hills Casitas: My husband and I were looking for a unit that my mom could use if she ever decided to leave Hawaii (according to her that will never happen!). We love Green Valley for it's small community size and expansive menu of activities. We chose this particular townhouse for it's ideal location, privacy, and retirement demographic. It is situated within the second building on the left within the Desert Casitas property which means the patio has only desert in front of it and beyond, the green of the neighboring golf course. There is a recreation center within 10 minutes walk and several golf courses on Camino Del Sol, the main road before turning onto Desert Hills Drive. The shopping center is 3 minutes drive and finding the casita from I-19 is blessedly simple.
