The rich culture of Tucson for music, theater, art and education are very near and easy to reach via a short drive on Interstate 19. The mountains and high deserts of Arizona are in your back yard. Four major golf courses are within 2 miles of the Sky Island House.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I live in Hereford AZ, about 2 hours away on the side of a mountain at 5,000 ft. in a beautiful Swiss style chalet. I am a retired NASA engineer and my wife is a retired business owner.

Why the Owner Chose Green Valley Esperanza Estates, Green Valley, AZ, USA:
My wife and I bought this property from the estate of my wife's uncle and completely remodeled it for a place where we will eventually retire.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The front and back yards are delightful retreats in the morning or evening to enjoy a cup of coffee or an evening nightcap. Strolls down to the ramada for swimming are usually interrupted by pleasant folks sharing information about local activities. Its the nice people that make this place memorable.
