Property description

Enjoy the warm AZ sunshine - or shade if you wish - in this surprisingly private, well appointed, comfortable and bright 1400 sq ft plus Desert Hills IV townhouse. The front north-facing courtyard or back south facing patio gives you a choice. In the patio relax to the sound of a Lee Blackwell waterfeature as you look to the Santa Ritas to the east. If it's chilly, curl up in front of the gas fireplace with a good book or your favorite TV program. And, morning coffee in the sun-flooded private patio sure beats the snow and ice of the Midwest.

This home has two bedrooms (both with queen beds), two baths, new porcelain tile in the common areas, as well a large kitchen with lots of pull outs and a granite topped island with a built in wine fridge. Helping create a warm as well as convenient atmosphere, an antique oak roll top desk with WiFi and an oak secretary are functional parts of the area we spend most of our time in. Leather couches and a recliner in the living room make the space comfortable and work well with the modified southwest decor. The bird lover (or nature appreciator) will also enjoy the abundant wildlife to visit: Coyote, bobcat, mule deer are among the more uncommon animals to watch as they unafraidly wander by. The birds we've seen are too numerous to list but my personal favorite is the quail with its many sounds and attitudes or perhaps the shy and beautiful cardinal. The neighborhood is quiet with no thru traffic and rare freeway noise. The master suite features a secure patio door to the outside and double sinks and large handicapped walk in shower in the bath. In addition, in the early morning from your bedroom you can follow the rising sun as it radiates a majestic gold on the bluff to the west.

This home is part of Green Valley Recreation which has 13 rec centers, 27 tennis courts and 9 golf courses. One center is a short walk away. Here you can work out, swim in the Olympic sized pool, or become involved in one or more of the numerous activities Green Valley has to offer. Each center has its unique attraction such as the awesome woodshop at the West Center.

Our history with the property for anyone interested is as follows: We bought the property in 2008 spending entirely too much for it. We realized it at the time but liked the location, the basic flow of the house and the patio. We found a good contractor and landscape company and started making the home the comfortable place it has become. We had another skylight added, bringing the total in the home to seven. We had the ceilings stripped of popcorn and recessed lighting in the bedrooms and living room added. In addition we took out two entry closets and created a beautiful display area, enlarged the kitchen doorway and opened up the space. We had a custom designed modified beehive gas fireplace put in to add comfort and become a focal part of the home. Next was new soft grey / beige porcelain tile throughout the common areas. When we moved in we discovered the kitchen island had a beautiful oak front but the rest was a faux material so my husband rebuilt it with oak and we finished it to match the rest of the cabinetry. We added the granite top and lots of pull outs for convenience. We've done some updating in the kitchen but finding the cabinets nice tried to work with them adding antiques for warmth. Our next project was to have the courtyard redone and are very pleased with what MJM did with seating and plantings. We also built storage and a murphy bed in the double car garage where we stayed this winter when we had family from the midwest. It worked even better than we had hoped.

3022 via del Tirol is a no smoking and no pets home. It will be clean when you arrive; and if it is clean when you leave, you will have much or all of your $150.00 cleaning fee returned as well as your $350.00 damage deposit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We enjoy traveling and have experienced sights and sounds worldwide. We worked hard and now enjoy relaxing here in Green Valley much of the time and trying to make the world a better place for our having been here through our projects and with our giving. We have three grandchildren whose company we enjoy and thoroughly relish time we can spend with them here and in MN.

Why the Owner Chose Green Valley, AZ, USA:
Looking for an idea place to retire we have explored much of the South and Southwest. We liked the almost daily sunshine of southern AZ and feel this combined with summers in MN is perfect. The people, all retired, are friendly and no cliques seem to exist. We have found more to do than we have time or energy for.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We enjoy working on our home here as we did/do in MN giving it our personality and delighting in sharing it with others. We hike with the hiking club and often just sit and enjoy being alive in such a beautiful setting.
