About the Property
Lost Barrio's La Casa Verde ~ charming bungalow in the heart of Tucson
Welcome to La Casa Verde, ideally located in the Lost Barrio; a small, colorful shopping district tucked away in a neighborhood a few blocks south of the University of Arizona. Surrounded by many of Tucson's historic neighborhoods; Armory Park, Iron Horse, Pie Allen, Barrio San Antonio and Sam Hughes, the artisans of Tucson discovered the Lost Barrio. It is here where you will find your perfect getaway home in the heart of Tucson.
La Casa Verde is a charming historic two bedroom one bath 1920’s bungalow home within walking distance to downtown, Tucson’s vibrant nightlife, 4th Avenue’s eclectic shops and restaurants, and the University of Arizona; “Go ‘Cats!”. The space is bright and has been lovingly decorated to reflect the uniqueness of the house and the neighborhood. Wood and brick floors are softened by warm colors that create a soothing and comfortable atmosphere.
This fully outfitted historic home has a complete kitchen with a gas stove/oven, granite counter top, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, full size refrigerator, cooking and eating utensils, basic cooking spices/ingredients, dishes, pots/pans, wine glasses and cocktail glasses. Enjoy a meal inside at the antique dining table that seats four or use the bbq grill and enjoy the front patio. The front patio is also great to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening cocktail while watching the beautiful Arizona sunrise and sunsets.
The master bedroom sleeps two comfortably on a queen bed with soft linens. The second bedroom has a sleeper sofa, a cool old desk and vintage lockers to store your belongings. The second room can accommodate one to two (small) sleepers on the sleeper sofa that has a memory foam topper when used as a bed. The home’s bathroom features a newly tiled shower/bathtub and soft towels.
Relax, read or watch TV on the leather couch and rocking chair, or just play some games, in the living room. The property has a washer/dryer, central A/C and heat, free WiFi, and Netflix video streaming. There is a full size bike and child’s bike available for use.
Tucson is known for its paved bike paths, two of which converge in the Lost Barrio just blocks away from Casa Verde. The Arroyo Chico bike path is found within 40 meters from your front gate. It circles the Arroyo Chico and takes you to the Kino Sports Complex. Your second bike path at the end of Park Street is the Aviation Parkway bike path. It takes the biker, walker, or jogger from downtown Tucson all the way out to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
From the house, walk to downtown Tucson’s music venues, museums, film, theater and downtown Tucson’s new restaurant row; home to numerous winners of the Best of Tucson to the newest, hippest downtown eateries, micro-breweries and bars. Take the trolley to eclectic 4th Avenue with its many restaurants, coffee shops, bars and unique shops. The University of Arizona and University Avenue shops restaurants are also just blocks away. La Casa Verde’s central location makes it very easy to access just about any of Tucson’s hot spots in a matter of minutes.
A short drive will get you to even more museums, parks, botanical gardens, public swimming pool, tennis courts, golf courses, horseback riding, rock climbing or hiking through the picturesque Sonoran Desert. A few of those points of interests are the Arizona State Museum, Reid Park that's home to the Tucson Zoo and public golf course, Puma Air&Space Museum, Mission San Xavier, Sabino Canyon, Ventana Canyon, the Saguaro National Park and world famous Arizona Sonora Desert Museum where you can find over 200 animals and over 1,200 different plants that all are found in the Sonora Desert.
