Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: Chris and I live on the same property about 400 feet away from the Casita, the Casita and our home cannot be seen from each other. Chris, my husband is a custom home builder so both homes were custom built by us. We have lived here for 43 and it just gets better every day. We have one horse and two mules Chris does pack trips as a hobby. This property was part of a 1000 acre working ranch, the old ranch house is still being lived in and has been recently re-modeled. It is a beautiful place to live We have 2 sons 2 daughter-in-laws and3 Grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Tucson, AZ, USA:
This property is in a unique area, with amazing views, peace and quiet yet not to far from everything (11 Miles to Tucson) there are hiking, biking, and horse trails, abundant wildlife all right at your finger-tips. This is the perfect place to kick your feet up and relax or go for a walk in the wash and find Indian pottery, or visit an old homestead.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The first time I saw this area it was instant love, there are 4 Mtn. ranges all visible from any room in the Casita, amazing sun-sets from the balcony, we always see wildlife, and above all the serenity that this area brings to you. Not to mention the beautiful hand crafted touches that the Casita offers, open beams in the kitchen, dining and living room the beautiful stone fireplace, have all be chosen and hand crafted and built by us.
