Property description

Imagine yourself in this spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright-style home,
nestled in the open desert in the Central Catalina Foothills.
Breath-taking views of the mountains are available from virtually
every room. A sunken living room with huge windows offers comfortable
furnishings for groups, and the brand-new dining room easily
accommodates 10 people. The separate guest house/casita offers
extra privacy for the occupants.

The entire house is constructed of burnt adobe brick, which offers a
rustic warmth and charm blended with all the modern conveniences. The
adobe maintains a comfortable interior temperature in all seasons.

Surrounded by palm trees, this 'Sanctuary in the Desert' has the
feeling of staying in your very own private resort.

The Kitchen has been renovated in 2010, with brand new stainless steel appliances and a large island that provides seating. It is fully stocked for gourmet cooking: All-Clad pots and pans, food processor, blender, waffle iron, pasta pot, spices and seasonings, all utensils, etc.

Extensive covered ramadas and patios--all executed in the style of
Frank Lloyd Wright--surround the house and Casita, offering
opportunity for outside entertaining, viewing the gorgeous desert
sunsets, watching the birds, and communing with the desert. The ramadas have been newly furnished with modern all-weather wicker for comfort and versatility.

The backyard features a pathway through private cactus and succulent specimen garden located on over an acre of open desert.

The pool and spa face the mountain, and the walled-in sun deck offers
ultimate privacy.

Three spacious bedrooms plus den sofa bed sleep 7 comfortably:


Master BR #1 in the main house has a King size bed, but the mattresses
can be pulled apart to sleep 2 separately.


Master BR #2 in the main house features a Queen size bed.


Guest Room/Den in the main house has a Single size sleeper sofa with a
foam mattress topper.


The separate Guest House/Casita has a King size Tempur-pedic mattress.


All 4 open and spacious Bathrooms offer showers, 2 with tubs.

The central location of the house, near Campbell Avenue and Skyline
Drive, makes access to upscale La Encantada Shopping Center and all of
the City of Tucson very convenient. Quality restaurants are literally
minutes away in every direction. AJ's supermarket, Trader Joes, and
Safeway are within minutes, also. Hiking trails can be reached in
minutes by car. The Tucson International Airport is 30 minutes away
by car. Phoenix and Sky Harbor Airport are 100 miles/90 minutes by car.

Activities and attractions in Tucson Arizona:
Within minutes from the house in every direction you will find:
Hiking trails of every expertise level, bicycling, strolling through
the open desert, wild life viewing, bird viewing, shopping, cooking,
fine dining, golfing, tennis, touring the Arizona Sonora Desert
Museum, Saguaro National Parks East and West, Old Tucson Studios,
University of Arizona, Center for Creative Photography, Tucson Museum
of Art, Arizona State Museum, multitude of art galleries, Pima Air and
Space Museum, Tohono Chul Gardens, Tucson Botanical Gardens, Titan

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are two New York retired professionals, who discovered the beauty and serenity of the Tucson Desert in 2005 and never looked back! We split our time between New York and its craziness, and Tucson and its healing warmth. We are amateur gardeners, and our property has been carefully landscaped with the exotic plants indigenous to the Sonoran desert, as well as interesting specimens from other deserts. Hiking, biking, bird watching, wine tasting, traveling, and all food-related-activities are at the top of our list, and our home is equipped with all the tools needed for those activities.

Why the Owner Chose Catalina Foothills:
The 'dry heat' of the Sonoran Desert drew us to Tucson for the first time. Finding a home with exquisite Mountain views, a vanishing edge swimming pool and spa, and a central location to all the cultural activities that Tucson has to offer, compelled us to relocate there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our Home's unique benefits: Mountain views from virtually every room, open desert all around the property, nearby hiking trailheads, easy access to University of Arizona cultural events, close proximity to restaurants, food stores, shopping, art galleries, fully outfitted Gourmet Kitchen, comfortable mattresses
