Maybe you're a 'snowbird' who wants to escape a rough winter elsewhere, or a writer looking for a quiet retreat. Or you're taking part in the Tour de Tucson, Tucson Rodeo, Gem Show, or Accenture Golf Tournament? Maybe you're a visiting nurse, a physician, or family member? What ever your reason for arriving in Tucson, be my guest in this accessible 2-bedroom, 2-full bath, bright and spacious, single-story home with vaulted ceilings, skylights, and ceiling fans throughout. In this rural 1.21 acre setting bordering 'Twentyseven Wash', you'll be soothed by gentle dove calls and delight to the sight of desert bunnies that roam the landscape... Come be entranced by the shadows that pass daily over the Catalina Mountains. Relax 'southwest style' as the evening ushers in an unforgettable sunset... and perhaps drift off to sleep serenaded by the lone cry of a distant coyote. This home is just minutes from the prestigious Miraval Resort, Saddlebrooke and Saddlebrooke-Ranch golf communities, and the hiking trails of Catalina park. You'll find easy access to conveniences such as Basha's Market, the post office, library, spa, hair salons, car wash, several churches, and The Golden Goose Thrift Shop. The Marketplace outdoor mall is just five miles away, offering delightful bike/walking paths, a multiplex theater, brand name stores, several large and small restaurants, including The Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Subway Sandwich, and In & Out. Close to golfing, music venues, stage performances, country music, The Biosphere, Sabino Canyon, Tohono Chul Botanical Gardens, and a water park... in northwest Tucson, you'll never be bored unless you want to be, but then, we hope you'll come to appreciate 'siesta time' as much as we do.

Here in Catalina, you'll discover how friendly folks are! Everybody is from someplace else, so frequently you will hear, 'Where are you from?' The conversation continues from there... Stop by Mi Tierra for a Sour Cream Enchilada with Verde Sauce and a pitcher of Margaritas to share with your new friends. Wander through The Golden Goose thrift shop - for a bargain-priced treasure and feel good about supporting local charities.
Ask about Friday night country music at Kibby's - enjoy a 'boot-stompin' good time and some great snacks. Say an early-morning 'hello' to a coyote or two at sunrise as you head down the 2 mile Marketplace Walking Path (adjacent to the shopping mall at Oracle and Tangerine). Let the desert work its magic on you!
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Originally from upstate New York, my parents moved our family to Tucson in 1959 and in their senior years to this rural location. Although I no longer reside in Arizona, I have visited a few times a year for as long as I can remember. I have always loved the desert... the way the sunshine feels on my skin, the colorful mountain vistas, the wildlife, and the mesmerizing sunsets! So when it came time to make a decision about whether to let my parent's home go... well, I just couldn't. Now that it is mine, my family can continue to enjoy special gatherings here. And when we're not here, I know it would make my parents happy to share it with others who enjoy the desert... I hope you will let me know how I can make your stay as enjoyable as possible and cause you to want to return year after year.
Why the Owner Chose Catalina Foothills: Stay awhile and you will notice how the easy flow of this natural environment will bring you to a place of relaxation. The wildlife, the coo of doves, the sunsets, the smell of wet mesquite after a rain... will sooth you. Stay awhile. Daydream, read, write, or just relax. It doesn't take long to discover what Katherine's Hideaway can do for you.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The proximity of the desert, the bright and open (accessible) floor plan provides a spiritual lightness, a place to rest, re-create, and indulge your own thoughts.
