Imagine yourself in an authentic adobe home on 3 ½ acres of secluded desert, surrounded adobe walls and beautiful landscaped yard with native plants, situated within 50 acres of traditional Saguaro cactus Sonoran desert. Depending on the time of year, you may see or hear coyote, bobcats, road runners, javelina, and other desert wildlife.
Very rich and bright colors inside the house complement our personal collection of original art from the Southwest and the Americas. You will be delighted by the indoor and outdoor mosaics that accents the property. You’ll even dine on John Wayne’s table used in the movie The Shootist.
We have three beautiful outdoor sitting areas, which include a screened Arizona room, facing east for the sunrise, a shaded interior patio looking onto our native cactus-landscaped yard, and a roof deck. The roof deck, with a 360 degree view of the Tucson basin and sunsets over the Tucson and Catalina Mountains, provides a spectacular setting for outdoor coffee, margaritas, or hors d’oeuvres.
The interior of the home and Guest House are decorated and furnished with comfort and charm in mind. The kitchen is well appointed for all your gourmet cooking needs. The colorful dishware, cutlery, serving pieces, bake ware, complete set of cooking utensils, blender, cuisinart, coffee maker, new electric stove and oven, will inspire the creative chef inside you. The double sink and dishwasher will please the clean-up crew.
In addition to the living room with a working kiva fireplace and two lush couches, is a separate sitting room with a TV, DVD player, and writing desk. You will also find a 2nd TV in the kitchen and 3rd TV in the Guest House master bedroom, all on Dish network. A docking station for your iPod is integrated into the sound system, which is wired to speakers throughout the Main House as well as all outside sitting areas.
For true relaxation there is a hot tub to lounge in and around. We also have a washer and dryer for your convenience as well as central air conditioning in the Main House and an evaporative swamp cooler in the Guest House.
We are located 3 minutes from Saguaro National Park West; 5 minutes from I-10; and 20 to 30 minutes from most of the city’s attractions, restaurants, and businesses, including all venues of The Tucson Gem Show, The Desert Museum, the University of Arizona, Arizona Museums, Pima Air and Space Museum, Northwestern Hospital, San Xavier du Bac church, downtown Tucson, all Northwest Tucson restaurants and shopping.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We purchased this property as a second home but then decided to share the beauty of the Tucson desert surrounding us and our unique lifestyle with those that would truly appreciate this exquisite piece of Mother Earth.
Why the Owner Chose Tucson, AZ, USA:
Welcome to Casa Encantada. The seclusion of this desert location, yet with the proximity to an incredible variety of sports, dining and cultural activities, will make your stay memorable. It is a magnificent personal retreat space and if you enjoy the art of the Americas your eyes are in for a great treat. You will leave enlivened and refreshed.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every piece of the art has been personally chosen by us. The interior and exterior gardens have all been created and planted with an eye toward enjoying the exquisite shapes and colors from the Sonoran desert. If you come in spring you'll see breath-taking flowers and color. Yet, within minutes you can enjoy a tremendous variety of outdoor and cultural activities.
