About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Charming restored historic 1920 bungalow with high ceilings, wood floors, up-dated kitchen and backyard deck. Quiet street in a quiet neighborhood close to U of A campus, 4th Avenue shops/restaurants and downtown Tucson. 1050 sq. ft.
This is a single-family detached house, not a guest house or in-law apartment type of residence.... a great deal of space for one, low, year-round price.
A small room between the bedroom and the bathroom could accomodate a crib or small children's bed if needed. Let me know in advance and we'll work something out.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: I relocated from a 1906 bungalow in San Francisco to this 1920 Tucson gem in 1996 and lived in this house for almost ten years. I enjoy fine-tuning this wonderful home and aim to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I also love exploring Southern AZ and provide lots of brochures, maps and info about Tucson and day trips to surrounding sites. Please check out the 'Points of Interest' map and all the websites provided... and enjoy your visit to the beautiful Southwest.
Why the Owner Chose West University (Tucson, Arizona, United States of America):
The original house was tiny and in 1945 the large living room and bedroom were added bringing the total square footage to the current 1050 sq. ft. I resonated with the neighborhood and the warm character of the other historic homes in the area. The neighborhood is walkable and enjoyable (sidewalks! front porches!). I live only 10 minutes away from the property (in another historic neighborhood) so I am available for the 'meet and greet' and close enough to answer any questions you may have during your stay. In 2011 the wood floors were refurbished, the kitchen was remodeled and the house was completely painted inside and out. This can be your home away from home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home features vintage Tucson art along with local artwork that celebrates the uniqueness of the beautiful Southwest and the Sonoran desert. Looking for kitsch, knick-knacks and kokopellis? You might want to look elsewhere. Looking for classy, uncluttered and serene? You won't be disappointed!
