Overview

About the property

A 4200 sq ft. House - 4 bedrooms & 3 Bathrooms, A Pool, and Large Porch & Views

Our 'hacienda' is a 4200 square foot house perched above northern Tucson in a prestigious gated community nestled in the Santa Catalina Mountains. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It easily sleeps 8, but young adults can use the futons to allow for 10-12 to rest comfortably. There are villas and casitas in the area, so in keeping with the theme, we are the hacienda of the bunch. The house easily lends itself to relaxing with friends and family......cook, swim, work-out, watch tv, or get online. All of it can be enjoyed while appreciating panoramic views of both the city and the mountains!

The gourmet kitchen was recently upgraded with all new appliances, and granite countertops. Family and friends can cook a meal together in this fully equipped kitchen and still enjoy the magnificent city views, also, you can enjoy grilling all year around and 'picnic' on the porch. There are 2 full sized refrigerators, 2 sinks, 2 ovens, plenty of cabinets, and even a wine refrigerator!

Panoramic Views!

Sit on the large 500 square foot porch any time of the day or night and see the city change from high atop the foothills of the Santa Catalina mountains. Or enjoy the same view from the jacuzzi as water cascades down a beautiful waterfall into the 9 foot deep pool. Or swim laps across the 35 foot aquatic expanse.

The main family room is both comfortable and expansive, with a 12 foot high wood beamed ceiling, a flat screen TV with Blue-ray DVD player, large stone fireplace, and a game table that is customized for cards and poker chips...but the city views will grab your attention here too.

If you prefer mountain views, step into the 'gallery'.

While the whole house is adorned with gallery quality photographs of Arizona, this room boasts the largest collection with the forth wall being filled with the backyard's desert-scape in the foreground, and mountains in the background. Workout on the recumbent stationary bike and be visited by quail, javelina, deer, and the elusive bobcat. Or pull out a yoga mat and stretch among the colorful canvases. Or read one of the many provided books, while enjoying a cup of coffee on the futon.

The master bedroom overlooks the pool and the city and has another fireplace for winding down in the evenings privately. From the king sized bed, you can watch tv too. There is a walk-in closet and built-in desk with a printer and large bookcase with books in the master suite. From this area you can grab a cold drink from the beverage refrigerator and step right out onto your private porch for an evening dip into the jacuzzi, or enjoy a large soaking tub in the master bath. From the tub you also have beautiful views of the mountains.

This bathroom's shower has been updated with two shower heads (a rain head and handheld head) and a large bench. There are two full vanities, each with a sink and large mirror.

The house comes complete with full sized washer and dryer, free wifi, 3 large 50' flat screen TVs with satellite programing, 3 BlueRay DVD players, central air conditioning and heat throughout to make your stay comfortable and hassle-free. There is even an intercom system with central built-in radio to reach every room inside and outside simultaneously!

A car is recommended for the Tucson area. The house has a three-car garage, and has plenty of room for cars, bikes, or golf clubs. We can provide a set of Ping golf clubs and bag upon request.

A car is recommended for the Tucson area. The house has a three-car garage, and has plenty of room for cars, bikes, or golf clubs. We can provide a set of Ping golf clubs and bag upon request.

If you decide to venture out, you need not go far. Tucson's most up-scale shopping and dining area is less than a five minute drive. At the corner of Campbell and Sunrise there are at least 10 highly rated restaurants: Flemings Steak House, Acacia, Vivace, RA sushi, and even a Starbuck's. La Encantada shopping center is described as modern luxury retail and also has a fine foods grocery store, as well as Williams Sonoma, PotteryBarn, Tiffany's and the Apple store. There are also many boutique clothing stores.

The greater Tucson area is very bike friendly with many bike lanes and trails. In November, the Tour de Tucson is a 85 mile bike route event that includes nearby Sunrise road with it's clearly marked bike lanes for biking year around.

Resort style golf can be played year around, and this house is central to access so many golfing venues, that they can't all be listed, but here are a few premiere courses: La Paloma, Ventana Canyon, and Conquistador. PGA golf tournaments have been hosted at Omni National, Starr Pass, and the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play has been hosted by the Ritz Carlton at Dove Mountain and other venues around Tucson. Many other courses are scattered throughout Tucson.

Further afield are Tucson's most well-known tourist attractions, such as Old Tucson Movie Studios, where many westerns were filmed with stars like John Wayne. Also in that area, is The Sonoran Desert Museum. It is a living museum of animals and creatures that can provide a wonderful opportunity to identify the flora and fauna that you will see in your own backyard at your home-away-from-home.

The Pima County Air Museum has been the perfect place to showcase hundreds of vintage airplanes, and thanks to our year around low humidity, they are perfectly preserved and available for regular tours for the Aviation aficionado.

If you would like to travel in style to Arizona's wine country, we can connect you with a private limousine service to safely drive you to Sonoita for a day trip of tastings. Bring back your wine and keep it in our temperature controlled wine refrigerator for the duration of your stay to be enjoyed at your leisure.

If hiking is on your to-do list, we are central to two popular hiking destinations.

First, is Sabino Canyon, where the shimmering copper water flows to invite hikers, sunbathers, and power walkers. There is also a tram for those who want to see more in less time.

Second, is Catalina State Park. This park has many trails going up the northwestern slopes of the Catalina Mountains, where many Big Horn sheep were reintroduced to the area. Water flows here from snow melt high above in the mountains or during monsoon season.

Or just step outside your front door, and walk up the trails into the Pusch Ridge Reserve area. The house is bordered to the north by natural preserved property that extends on up to the pinnacle mountain peaks. These are less traveled, but only because they can only be accessed from this gated community.

Monsoon season is predictably July and August, and is a photographers dream!

From your perch above the city you can witness nature's power in a light show production that is all Mother Nature. The cloud formations, sunsets, and rainbows beg to be photographed from the comfort of your front porch.

Saguaros and other cacti produce flowers that we have photographed mostly just around the property, and those photos proudly add color to every room in the house. In early Spring ,the California poppies are frequently out in mass.

Take a day trip out to Kitt Peak National Observatory and see some of the poppies on your way. This Observatory houses the world's largest collection of optical telescopes for astronomical viewing, and they have regular nightly viewing programs for visitors. Our clear skies make star gazing world class!

The world's largest Gem and Mineral show happens in Tucson every February, and it is extremely difficult to find lodging in town or the surrounding areas during this time. If you are fortunate enough to stay here during this time you can explore the city wide event. Diamonds and rare gemstone jewelry abound, but fossils and geodes and all things geological are featured in venues around town. Shoppers and collectors flock here for this gigantic event.

The owners take pride in their property... and it shows.

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of golfers ranging in age from 55 to 70.

We have been coming to Tucson for close to 20 years.

This property is as good as any we have ever stayed.

Our priorities include :

Prime central location to various golf courses.

Hot tub and heated pool to enjoy after the round(s) of golf.

We have a chef who plays golf with us, so the kitchen and grill must be top notch.

The ability to sleep up to nine guys with each having their own bed.

spectacular views of the city, especially at night.

When your planning a trip you don't want the stress of wondering if the property really looks like the pictures, and fits the description on the website.

With this property you wont be disappointed.

Sam and Michelle take great care of you.

We'll be back.

Tucson Treat!!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family (7 adults and 5 kids) just spent a wonderful week at this beautiful house. The pool, backyard, Jacuzzi, and porch overlook the entire city. After we watched the sun set, we sat back and observed the city lights come to life. The house had plenty of room for all of us and spread out families nicely. The owners were excellent at communicating and worked hard to meet our needs. It was a wonderful vacation.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 had an amazing time here. There was plenty of room for everyone (we even had an extra room!). It was so relaxing and beautiful. The sunsets were amazing and we all enjoyed the pool and spa. It was nice to have the grill and well appointed kitchen so we could spend time together instead of going out all the time. The nearby restaurants and stores were great and we could not have asked for anything more. All of our expectations were exceeded and we look forward to staying again in the future!!

The property is beautifully kept, abundantly stocked and such a gem to enjoy! Would definitely return as our party of ten were all impressed to find the beds very comfortable, the space generous, the property very clean and organized and the spectacular views unparalleled. Thank you to Michelle & Sam for sharing your home with us.
