About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
This home is nestled into a saguaro studded hillside at an elevation of 3,200’ (Downtown Tucson is about 2,350’). It is one of the highest estates in the northwest foothills of Tucson and the view must be seen to be believed. During the day, you can see the mountains on the Mexican border (68 miles away) and at night, the sea of lights of metro Tucson are below you. Behind the home is designated wilderness area filled with wildlife and improved hiking trails off of Pima Canyon. We have personally seen the following birds and animals in our yard: giant owl; giant hawk, bobcat, deer, javelina, coyote, humming bird, rabit and various other species. The daytime temperatures in the summer are about 4 degrees less than downtown because of our elevation and the nighttime temperatures in the winter run at least 5 degrees warmer because we are off of the valley floor.
It is only minutes away from many activities:
-Golf at Arizona National (formerly the Raven) in 10 minutes, Ventana Canyon in 25 minutes, and many more great golf courses within 30 minutes.
-Grocery shopping, restaurants, drug stores, and virtually everything you might need to purchase on a day to day basis are within 8 minutes.
-La Encantada, Tucson's premier dining and shopping venue, is 5 minutes away.
-St Phillips Plaza, another exclusive shopping and dining location, is about 10 minutes away.
-Tucson Mall is about 10 minutes away.
-University of Arizona is about 20 minutes
-Downtown Tucson is about 25 minutes

The natural gas deposit covers the actual cost of natural gas used primarily for heating the pool and the hot tub as measured by the gas meter. I take a photo of it when you arrive and when you depart, then charge the exact rate that I am charged. If your deposit doesn't cover the charge then you owe me the difference. If the deposit was more than the charge then I will refund the difference.
