This is the guest house of our future retirement home. The casita was custom built in 2010. 900 SF plus a 2 1/2 car garage, on a one acre lot. In the spring of 2014 we will add our retirement home, attached to the casita by an open courtyard with fountain, a high tower foyer, and covered patio. Come enjoy this beautiful one bedroom guest home located in the scenic Northeast area. Separate entrances.
The spacious LR/Kitchen has exposed beams, granite countertops, and SW design details evident in the numerous arches and fully tiled floors. A full dresser and closet complete the bedroom. Bathroom has custom tiled shower, and a washer and dryer. 9' ceilings, and mountain views throughout the property. The beautiful courtyard and covered patio lie just off the living room door. Privacy walls surround our entire 1 acre lot. Three outside sitting areas allow you to fully enjoy the beautiful, sunny, Tucson weather, cozy up around the fire pit, or sit peacefully under the mesquite trees watching the neighboring Arabian horses.
My wife and I live in upstate New York. She is a teacher and I own a residential construction business. We have a history with Tucson that goes back to 2003. We currently split our time between New York and Arizona.
Have you ever rented a place that looked great on the web site only to find it lacking in person? The non-stick cookware is shot, or the shower drains so slowly you stand in dirty water, or there is a bucket in the living room catching a 'small' leak from the unit above? Well, as a traveler all three of these things have happened to me. I can assure you that this will never happen to you at our home. We currently stay at the home three times a year. Consequently, we know exactly what is going on with the home. I do not expect you to be our eyes and ears. When you arrive, the home will be ready for you to enjoy every minute of your vacation.
As a builder, I am proud of this home. From its unique architectural lines to its elegant soutwesternern decor, I believe the home is truely a special place. But the truth is, I could build this home anywhere. What really makes this home a complete joy to live in is the location. The home sits on one acre in a quiet, residential neighborhood. There is a solid 6' high privacy wall enclosing the entire backyard. This is about 1/2 acre. While it is very peaceful sitting in the home, the backyard 'Tucson Table' area is tranquility at it's finest. Sit back, or lie back on the zero gravity chairs, and listen to the wind tickle the mesquite trees, hummingbirds proclaiming their territory, and the coyotes announcing the sunset - or sunrise - if you are up that early. We have spent many an evening watching the sunset across the majestic Catalina Mountains. With all the nooks and crannies, it never grows old.
