Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: An artist and a retired engineer
Why the Owner Chose Horizon Heights, Oro Valley, AZ, USA:
We bought this place for the location. Views of Pusch Ridge and Tucson mountains plus privacy with desert all around the house. We stated coming to Tucson in 1965 to go to graduate school and never stopped coming back to explore. The expansion of Oro Valley has brought convenience to the site as never before. The desert + close to stores, golf, and movies. Escape to Canada del Oro wash in 300 yards or go golfing at 4 courses within 3 miles. Walk to the grocery store ~ 1 mile or take your golf cart /walker on the path.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to hiking at Catalina State Park, Honeybee Canyon, and many other excellent trails and petroglyph sites make this a creative base while getting healthy exercise. On the back patio is an easel which makes it an excellent place to create a painting. With the wireless, it's great for research and writing. The energy here has always been conducive to creativity.
