About Rich Hopkins

I grew up Here in Tucson and have lived here more or less 40 years while having traveled the world playing music..not just any music but rock and roll! I was also a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay from 1981-83. This house is a reflection of my love and respect of the spirituality and local southwestern/Mexican art work.

Rich Hopkins purchased this house in 2006

Why Rich Hopkins chose Blenman-Elm

As I mentioned, this house has a lot of cultural funkiness that is unique to my travels around the world and my love for Latin America. This house is centrally located to shopping, movie theaters, parks, bars,restaurants and the Univ. of AZ hospital as well! If you are athletically inclined and love to run or walk, this is the house for you! I am 5 minutes from Speedway which has every store and restaurant imaginable. Yet while sitting on my back porch and listening to the birds, it is serene and peaceful. I bought this home for me and my daughter because it was close to her high school. Plus Mabel street is quiet and is a perfect place to walk with out worries of traffic. and has a great views of the Catalinas Mountains.

What makes this house unique

The location of the house is unique. The pool I built is a secret paradise. The house eclectic beauty and the neighborhood is quiet. Plus Starbuck's is only 2 blocks away!

Comfortable, Homey Gem

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described. It was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Having both a livingroom and a family room gave us room to spread out and relax. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and the pool is lovely. The neighborhood is quiet. The owner was super helpful in answering questions and the locally-based manager was available. i would recommend this property to others and we plan to come again.
