Property description

Nestled within the Tucson Mountain foothills, this home enjoys a very private setting on five acres with fantastic views of Tucson and several mountain ranges across the valley. A paradise for nature lovers, it is minutes away from Saguaro National Park and the many opportunities it has to offer. Hikers, birdwatchers, and photographers will be delighted. The property is visited regularly by gambel's quail, mule deer, javelina, gila woodpeckers, and other native wild animals.
At the same time, you can be in downtown Tucson within 15 minutes. The rich culture of the southwest is yours to enjoy.
The home features THREE BEDROOMS, two with their own en suite bath, and a HALF BATH near the great room. Enjoy Southwestern viga beam architecture, massive outdoor entertaining space, huge kitchen and utility room, large bedrooms with views of the Tucson Mountain Foothills in all directions, double car garage, pool (not heated) and spa. Stay a week, a month or for the entire high season. The home is great for small family gatherings.
Tucson is a mecca for outdoor sports. Bicycling, rock climbing, and hiking are all very popular. Or you can choose to stay at the house, enjoying the breathtaking scenery and tranquility... the pool and spa... and gaze at the multitude of stars at night.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We love the desert southwest of America and Tucson. The wildlife, the desert landscapes, and the rich cultural history of the area are what drew us here.

Why the Owner Chose Tucson, AZ, USA:
We purchased the home years ago. It needed a little attention at the time, so we gave the home the TLC it deserved. After building the pool and outdoor terraced landscaping, we wanted to share the beauty of the place.
