About the property

3 BR, 2.5 bath home on 5 acres in mountain foothills, gorgeous scenery

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.

About Chris Brodrick

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.

Chris Brodrick purchased this house in 2009

Why Chris Brodrick chose Tucson

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.

The house is very comfortable and the location is ideal if you enjoy desert scenery.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about this property: the bedrooms, the open layout, the expansive patio, the pool, the vista, even the oversized garage. If you enjoy being outside of town and relaxing, this is pretty ideal.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

I was delighted with our stay. This is a lovely property with a beautiful view, fantastic pool/outdoor area, and comfortable accommodations. It is very private and the home is well outfitted and carefully maintained. I was hesitant to book this house at first because it was quite a bit more expensive than the others I was considering but I am so glad I did. It was clearly worth the additional expense. I recommend it.

Totally Peaceful Escape

  • 5 of 5

This home was such a refuge! We spent a lot of time in the pool because it was 100 degrees! The sunrises (at 5 AM!) were amazing. The view at dusk and at night is spectacular!!! The house was comfortable. The AC worked great and was really quiet. We didn't cook much, but the kitchen was well stocked. We had a great time, once we got used to that very interesting road to the house!!!

Wonderful Experience

  • 4 of 5

Thanks Chris. This was the first experience renting a property for an extended stay, met all of our expectations. It was quite private and quiet but still close to everything we needed. Hiking opportunities were very close. Owner had lots of information in their welcome booklet and on their book shelf of things to do (including maps) and places to eat. We ate most of our meals at the house, kitchen was set up for that. Hot tub was nice to have, my only wish was that the pool would have been heated. We are hoping to make a return visit. It shows 4 stars only because I didn't know how to get the rate to accept a 4 and a half

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about this lovely home (except the steep driveway). We appreciated the location, the design of the house, tasteful furnishing, comfortable beds, well equipped and provisioned kitchen and best of all the view from the hot tub.
