Plan your own private retreat at this 3.5-acre property located in a gated community on the east side of Tucson. Nestled in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains, it sits at one of the highest points in the community at the end of a roundabout. It’s gated and fenced for security. The home and grounds have a spectacular view of the city and its four surrounding mountain ranges. It affords complete privacy and offers a tranquil environment to rest, relax and rejuvenate while enjoying the Sonoran Desert and the beautiful climate of southern Arizona.
The east terrace includes a fully operational outside kitchen with gas grill, refrigerator, sink, work counters, dining table and chairs and an authentic Italian pizza oven. Additionally, there’s a seating area to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sun come up over the adjacent canyon. There are stone steps with railings for access into the canyon.
The south terrace has an infinity edge pool, which can be heated, and a poolside lounge area. The windows are encased with climbing roses and there are ceramic flower pots decorating all the terraces.
The west terrace includes a free-standing fireplace and evening dining area. You’ll enjoy watching the sunset over the Tucson Mountains to the west, and the twinkling lights of the city as they come up at dusk. Tucson is a low-light city, which really enhances the views.
Below the pool, there’s a lily pond, tea house (it’s air-conditioned) and a sitting area with a striking Brian Schader sculpture. Again, gorgeous views and lovely plantings accessed via a stone staircase from the terrace level above.
Just along the driveway, as you approach the house, there’s a picturesque koi pond surrounded by dramatic plantings. Another lovely spot to rest and reflect.
The master bedroom on the 2nd floor has a huge wrap-around outside terrace with a glass banister so as not to obstruct the view. It includes a hot tub, sitting area (perfect for morning coffee or sunsets as it looks west), a water feature and plenty of space for meditation, yoga, or whatever exercise you might enjoy. It includes a spacious bath, a see-through gas fireplace that can be enjoyed from the Jacuzzi bath and the bedroom, walk-in shower, and a walk-in closet/dressing room. The bath and bedroom have breathtaking views of the canyon and surrounding foothills.
The second bedroom, located on the first floor, has a full bath and walk-in closet and sleeps two.
The gourmet kitchen with adjacent walk-in pantry is fully equipped with everything you’ll need to prepare your favorite meals. The dining area includes an open gas fireplace that can be enjoyed from both the dining and living room areas. This open floor plan has dramatic views from the large picture windows. There are automatic see-through rolling shades to block out the midday sun but not the view. The laundry room is also on this floor.
