Property description

Bring friends or family to share one of the bedroom/bathroom suites in this resort like setting. During the day you can access one of many golf courses within a 5 to 10 minute drive or walk out the front door and take a hike in a magical canyon. The Oro Valley Community Center is about 5 miles away offering weekly or monthly rates for access to a full array of indoor and outdoor sports activities. After a full day of outdoor exploring or shopping in the many specialty shops, enjoy a cold drink sitting pool side at our tranquil oasis in the desert watching the Catalina mountains turn from pink to purple at sunset while the stars brighten the sky!

The master suite includes a roomy bedroom and sitting area with a queen tempurpedic mattress including massage options and elevation for head and legs. The spa like master bathroom includes a large walk in shower with hand held, a therapeutic soaking tub and double sinks with private access through a pocket door to a double walk in closet. The front guest room also has a tempurpedic mattress. The third bedroom doubles as a den with access to the yard and a super comfortable LazyBoy blow up mattress for the queen sleeper sofa.

For those who like to cook, there is a specially designed kitchen with double ovens, gas cooktop, microwave, fridge and dishwasher as well as an array of small appliances. The dining room comfortably seats eight at the large round table. The great room offers views of the special yard light and the pool. A gas fireplace warms the home on chilly evenings. The sound system supports a 37 inch Sharp TV with blue ray DVD and a carousel CD system.

The large private backyard faces north onto a wash and offers a panoramic view of the Catalina mountains. A ramada shades the private spa usable year round seating up to six people. A propane fire pit warms brisk evenings with comfortable seating with mountain views. The 14 x 32 foot pool has an electric cover to maintain heat and reduce debris offering gentle sounds of running water with six fountains. The pool can be heated during cooler months for an additional fee. A special outdoor kitchen area includes a propane gas grill with plenty of serving space and ready access to several citrus trees laden with lemons and limes along with black mission figs.
The home is an easy ride to area attractions and only 45 minutes from the Tucson airport and less than two hours from the Phoenix airport.

The pool has a gas heater and an electric cover to preserve heating. Cost of heat varies based on air temps and desired warmth of the pool.

Grocery stores are 3.3 miles from the house and specialty groceries with great produce, fish, chicken and healthy items are just over 5 miles away.

Locally owned restaurants are fantastic providing an array of tasty treats including Italian, greek/seafood, Japanese, Mexican and more traditional food options. The Village Bakehouse is close by with pies and pastries that melt in your mouth. There is also an abundance of chain restaurants. We frequent Rubio Baja Grill about 4 miles from the house for their fresh Mexican and excellent fish tacos and great salads with great outdoor seating at the base of Pusch Ridge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: In 1999, we moved to Arizona from Connecticut and have enjoyed owning several properties in this beautiful state. Our home at 817 E. Hickman Drive is our favorite for its privacy, views and the amenities we have incorporated.

Why the Owner Chose Rancho Vistoso, Oro Valley, AZ, USA:
This property is on the corner of Rancho Vistoso providing ready access to specially designed walking and bicycling facilities. The property neighbors a wash and has only one house next to it making it particularly quiet and private with lots of visits from cardinals and other birds as well as wildlife. It is close to several beautiful parks with tennis courts, basketball courts, playsets, and a great dog park.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this property because the panoramic views of the mountains from the front and back yard are incredible providing a sense of peacefulness any time of the day and particularly at sunset when the mountains turn shades of pink and purple. On nights with a full moon this is a special place to enjoy a special drink or a cup of tea while watching the moon rise up behind the mountains evolving with a beautiful glow. The neighborhood is a delightful mix of families and retirees enjoying each other and the array of special events Oro Valley and Tucson have to offer.
