About the Property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Home Located Near Tucson's Most Important Attractions

The Sam Hughes neighborhood borders the university, is near downtown, Reid Park Zoo, Randolph Park Recreational facilities, and is within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. The home is part of a historic neighborhood developed in the mid 20th century. Even a short walk will reveal a variety of architectural styles that reflect the varied influences on the Southwest. It is among the premiere neighborhoods in central Tucson. The home has beautiful desert landscaping, an enclosed back yard with a covered patio, and an equally lovely front yard. The rooms are spacious and it has a charming mid-century kitchen with updated appliances. The three bedrooms feature king, queen, and twin beds. The largest bedroom includes an office/study area. You won't want to miss the opportunity to shower in the contemporary glass master bath.

Other Amenities

  • Reid Park Zoo is nearby at Randolph Park, U of A's major sports venues are the closest part of the campus.

The Rincon Market is just three short blocks away and it has groceries and a butcher shop but is mostly a deli, bar, and grill. Several other restaurants are as close on nearby Broadway Avenue, as well as southwestern themed shopping....moreless

Car: Recommended

The house in a neighborhood adjacent to the University of Arizona and the end of the campus where the athletic facilities are found, so it is near the football and basketball stadiums. It is also a few short blocks to Randolph Park where U of A baseball games are played. Randolph Park also has public golf and tennis, a recreation center, and a zoo. Our home is near the downtown area of Tucson and the Tucson Convention Center, with access via the trolley or by the city bus which stops 2 blocks from the house. Broadway Avenue is two blocks from the house with restaurants, shops, urgent care clinic, and virtually all city amenities.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We are long time residents of the mountains of Arizona and have raised our two sons here. They grew up enjoying the outdoors, the variety of Arizona's climates, and the year-round recreational opportunities the various climates offer. We are looking forward to retiring, spending summers in the cool mountains, and the winters in the warm desert.

Why the Owner Chose Sam Hughes (Tucson, AZ, USA):
This home, in the middle of the historic Sam Hughes neighborhood, is a beautiful place to locate and convenient to all the amenities of a vibrant city's best features. The home itself has the features that one would expect to be part of this fascinating neighborhood and region, a lovely appearance, a comfortable interior, and a unique southwestern flavor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This location is convenient to many of the city's features including being within waking distance of many neighborhood amenities and specifically to the University of Arizona.
