I invite you to get away from it all and experience the very unique, peaceful feeling that permeates this property. Enjoy exceptional uninterrupted views of the desert and mountains on a secluded 1 acre property with unlimited Arizona sunsets and starry desert nights. The house is completely surrounded by beautiful desert landscaping designed to attract humming birds and butterflies, giving you complete privacy from other properties. You can even enjoy fresh fruit from several fruit trees on the property including tangelos when ripe. Watch it all from an extensive covered veranda stretching on 2 sides of the house.
This quiet retreat is located on a division of a large ranch near Kitt Peak observatory, boasting some of the cleanest air in America, just north of the Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge and about half hour drive from downtown Tucson.
The house is a single story, 2,400 sq ft. open plan totally furnished including 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1 office with wide views and perspectives. The master bedroom, which has a king size bed, has direct access to a private patio and there are uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape for miles from the large living area. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has an electric adjustable twin bed. There is a walk-in pantry off the kitchen as well as a dedicated laundry room. The house is artistically appointed throughout with unique furnishings and hand-painted cabinets in the bathrooms. Above all it exudes an overwhelming peaceful feeling. Guests have commented that they have had their best sleep here.
In addition there is a 2 car garage attached and a ping pong table as well as a king Mayan hammock on the porch.
The kitchen is stocked with dishes, glasses, utensils, pots and pans and usual necessities. The closets have all linens and blankets necessary. The laundry room has a vacuum cleaner and a floor steamer as well other cleaning tools and products. TV and DVD player as well as internet are available.
Despite its quiet surroundings the house is within 10 minutes drive of grocery stores, local restaurants and a well supplied country store. Nearby excursions include the Saguaro National Monument, the movie set of “Old Tucson”, the renowned Sonoran Desert Museum, the Kitt Peak observatory, the vast Buenos Aires wildlife refuge and the San Xavier mission.
An offsite caretaker provides his varied skills for the landscaping and any mechanical problems. He is also very knowledgeable about the native plants and their uses.
I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do.TripAdvisor property ID 4445568...Read more
