Our Green Valley home is a well-maintained and recently remodeled one, surrounded by desert landscaping and patios on three sides. In contrast to many Green Valley homes, it is free-standing, not attached to another house. There is plenty of outdoor and indoor room for entertaining, and a gas barbeque grill is provided for your use. The house sleeps 4 people (maximum). It offers a huge master bedroom with a king bed, a large TV, an entire wall of closet space, and another wall of floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the Santa Cruz Valley and Santa Rita Mountains. Guests can walk out of the master bedroom onto one of the home's brick patios. The second bedroom has two twin beds for versatility, and a third bedroom is set up as an office or den. There is a separate dining room, from which you can walk out onto a patio and look out onto the greens of the nearby Desert Hills II golf course. Our kitchen has an additional breakfast nook, which adjoins a beautifully-planted central atrium. The home's living room has a functional, bee-hive fireplace, comfortable seating for 6 people and a flat-screen TV. If you are a rockhound or an artist, you will enjoy the specimen rocks, coral pieces and artworks scattered throughout the home. Washer and dryer are provided in a utillity room near the kitchen, and a two-car garage is attached. This home is located on a cul-de-sac, so you will not be bothered by passing traffic noise. Come spend a few weeks or more in our home! We know you will enjoy it!

About Martha E. Webb and Jerry E. Clark
Hi! We're Martha Webb and Jerry Clark, and we are the owners of this home in the Desert Hills II development of Green Valley, Arizona, about 30 minutes south of Tucson via I-19. You see us above, pictured with our canine sidekick. In the beginning, Martha was an "Air Force brat," and Jerry grew up on an Iowa farm. Both of us pursued academic careers, Martha as a historian of science and technology and Jerry as an anthropologist specializing in Native American and Asian cultures. We met while teaching at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, and married soon afterwards. When we retired, we started travelling the U.S. in our RV, and we winter each year in Tucson. Martha is an active Rotarian, photographer and jewelry artist (ask her about the incredible Tucson Gem and Mineral Show!); Jerry is a member of a local creative writing group, as well as a lunchtime bicycling group; and both of us are avid birdwatchers.
Martha E. Webb and Jerry E. Clark purchased this House in 1985
Why Martha E. Webb and Jerry E. Clark chose Desert Hills Estates
We have enjoyed this home for many years, as for 30 years it was Martha's mother's winter home. We frequently visited and recall with pleasure leaving Omaha with a winter temperature of 4 degrees below zero and landing in Tucson with a winter temperature of 65 degrees above! For that and many other reasons, we will always have fond memories of our family here together. In 2012 the house became ours when Martha's mother moved to a retirement apartment. Being avid RV'ers and not wanting to settle down just yet, in 2013 we decided to let other folks enjoy the house for a while. For several years, a leasing company handled the property (that's why there are currently no traveller reviews!), but this year we decided to become personally involved. We know Green Valley and southern Arizona very well, and we enjoy sharing our knowledge with our guests.
What makes this House unique
My mother and stepfather chose well when they bought this house in the 1980s. As mentioned above, it is free-standing, so when the weather is wonderful (which is almost always in fall, winter and spring), you can walk around outside or sit on one of the patios and bask in the sunshine, without having neighbors too close by. Inside, the house was always very comfortable and spacious, and our recent remodeling has given it a more 21st century feel (with porcelain tile floors, newer appliances, WIFI, etc.). We also like the central atrium, which brings in sunlight, fresh air and the cheerful colors and textures of the plants growing there. In addition, when you rent our home, we always include 2 "Green Valley Recreation" passes, which give you access to a myriad of recreational activities in the area. These passes give you free use of the Desert Hills II recreation center's pools, fitness rooms, and many other Green Valley facilities, although additional fees are required to golf on any of the nearby golf courses, to attend some musical concerts, or to join special interest groups.
Pool / Spa
In addition to Green Valley's wonderfully warm winter weather, our town is a great location from which to explore Tucson, southern Arizona, and even a touch of Mexico. Within an hour's drive are the museums, botanical gardens, music, art, festivals, restaurants, hiking and biking of Tucson; the bird watching, mountain climbing, hiking and biking of fabulous Madera Canyon; the quaint little art village of Patagonia (excellent for bird watching also); the art galleries, shops and restaurants of historic Tubac; and the across-the-border experience of Nogales, Mexico. Trust us! You will never lack for exciting activities if you stay with us in Green Valley!
