Tucson Mountain Foothills house description

ELEGANT five bedroom, three bath custom executive home is your own personal and PRIVATE Sonoran Desert retreat. This lovely Santa Fe-style home is located only 20 minutes from the University of Arizona and downtown on a very quiet, private and peaceful one acre in the Tucson Mountains foothills. Enjoy PANORAMIC VIEWS of the Tucson and Catalina Mountains, city lights and FANTASTIC star-filled night skies.

The graciously designed first level includes a SPACIOUS sunken living room featuring 14 foot ceilings, built-in window-seats and entertainment center including big-screen 60 inch TV with built-in Bose surround sound. The CHEERY beamed-ceiling family room features a Talavera tiled fireplace with triple French doors leading to a cool and welcoming covered flagstone patio. Free high speed wi-fi internet is available throughout the property. A breakfast nook, separate dining area and gourmet kitchen complete the living spaces.

Just off the flagstone patio a fabulous CUSTOM DESIGNED SOLAR HEATED SWIMMING POOL and GAS HEATED SPA feature a negative-edge, waterfall, dramatic lighting, soothing massage jets and SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN, CITY LIGHTS AND NIGHT SKY VIEWS. A furnished lower terrace completes your resort-like private backyard, and makes this home PERFECT for vacations with family and friends, football weekend gatherings, holiday get-togethers, romantic escapes, and extended breaks from wet and cold winter weather (Tucson enjoys 360 DAYS OF SUNSHINE annually!).

The large second floor master suite features a king bed, private bath with oval garden tub and separate shower, and lovely mountain views. Three more bedrooms upstairs with full bath and a private downstairs guest suite with queen bed and third full bath all feature LOVELY DESERT VIEWS, new Simmons Beautyrest European pillowtop mattresses, 100% cotton linens and towels, ceiling fans and large closets.

A washer and dryer, gas grill, and three-car attached garage including mirrored exercise studio and gym complete your own private desert retreat.
