Perfect for short/long term leisure or business visits.
This sunny 1906 home is located in the center of Tucson's historic Armory Park Neighborhood, just a few minutes walk from the opera, symphony, Arizona Theater Company playhouse, great restaurants, galleries, historic sites and the shops and clubs of Congress St. and 4th Avenue. The University of Arizona is just one mile away, and can be reached easily by foot, bicycle, car, or the new modern Streetcar through the beautiful West University District.
A beautiful alternative to the cookie-cutter nature of hotels with so much more to offer than a one-size-fits-all hotel experience, this charming detached single-family home offers 1100 square feet of personal living space including two spacious bedrooms (each with a king-sized bed), one full bathroom, a formal living room, a complete, modern kitchen and a laundry room. The home has modern heating and air-conditioning and there is lighted parking on the street directly in front of the house.
This home has been fully updated and features bright colors, warm pine-plank wood floors dramatized by 11-foot ceilings and period molding. The bath is accented with period tile, an original claw-foot bathtub, and graceful pedestal sink. For those who like to bathe in the open air, just outside the kitchen in the backyard next to the hot tub is a private outdoor hot/cold shower on flagstone.
The bright and spacious kitchen is fully-equipped with cookware and dinnerware and offers modern appliances, tile countertops, newly-installed period-style cabinets, and a dining table with seating for six.
Soft casual seating areas in the living room at the front of the house provide a comfortable gathering area for spending good times with family or friends. Outside seating on the covered front porch provides a great spot to watch the evening fall on quiet Herbert Avenue along with our classic southwestern sunsets. A full-size washer and dryer are also available for your use in a laundry room near the kitchen.
Beautiful native landscaping enhances the beauty of the home. The back yard offers a large Beachcomber hot tub with seating for five, an outdoor shower, and outdoor seating. Landscape elements, including citrus and bougainvillea, have been carefully chosen to create a warm and colorful year-round outdoor space.
The home provides popular amenities including personalized concierge service, high-speed wireless internet, CD/DVD/VHS/MP3 players, ceiling fans and local and long-distance telephone calls, all at no additional charge. Several excellent food markets are within easy walking distance of the Herbert House. The house is two blocks from the new streetcar line, providing easy access to all of downtown Tucson as well as the University of Arizona. We are bike-friendly, with easy access to the loop trail and a location one block from the finish line for the annual Tour de Tucson bike race.
