About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This home designed and built in 1959 by noted Tucson modernist Tom Gist features beautiful burnt adobe masonry, walls of glass, incredible wood paneling and cabinetry, and a stunning kitchen. The home is listed on the National Register for Historic Places.
This residence has been maintained by previous and current owners in immaculate condition and is furnished with authentic mid-century furnishings, including Heywood-Wakefield bedroom and dining room sets.
The beautifully-landscaped patio has views of the Catalina mountains along with a large heated private pool. Even in the city, Gambel's quail, mourning doves, hummingbirds, and cottontail rabbits share the grounds. This home is a perfect base for exploring the city and the surrounding Sonoran desert.
The home sleeps six, with two full-sized beds in separate bedrooms, along with two twin beds in a third bedroom. A study/office workspace with wireless internet is also available. Bathrooms have original cabinetry and fixtures, and each has a combination shower and tub.
Experience the magic of Tucson living as it was originally envisioned in the 1950's.
PLEASE NOTE: MINIMUM WINTER STAY IS 60 DAYS

Why the Owner Chose El G.H.E.K.O., Tucson, AZ, USA:
