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.
