Located at the base of the Catalina Mountains with views all around, ‘Casa Ligera’ blends the elements of design, style and setting in a way that make it a truly unique and wonderful property. The setting is secluded, quiet and abundant in wildlife; located on a cul-de-sac with no nearby homes and adjoining a 60-acre natural desert reserve.
The home boasts 10 to 12-foot ceilings, quality construction and was recently furnished with a tasteful, eclectic mix of high-quality furnishings that celebrate the southwest and hacienda design elements of the region. Guests will enjoy an open and spacious floorplan, with the kitchen centrally located between the family, living and dining rooms - framed by an impressive wall of picture windows that provide gorgeous views of the lush outdoor landscaping.
The family room has a 65-inch flat-screen Smart TV and DVR, while the living room is ideal for conversation or reading by the custom fireplace.

Stream your favorite songs wirelessly, or make your own music on the keyboard and be sure to enjoy the massage chair in the den!
Meal prep is a breeze in the fully equipped kitchen, featuring granite counters, a spice collection, all the essential cooking utensils and an eat-in kitchen island. Share your meal at the 4-person kitchen table, in the formal dining room set for 8, or outside on one of the several patio tables for an al fresco experience.
The northerly orientation of the backyard space offers mountain and desert vistas, and protection from the hot Arizona sun during the warmer months of the year. The covered patio extends the length of the house and is accessed from all 5 rooms along the north side.
Beyond the patio you’ll find a saltwater pool and spa, surrounded by an extensive flagstone patio. The evenings at ‘Casa Ligera’ are magical whether you’re watching the sunset over the Catalina Mountains, enjoying an evening swim, or enjoying the fading day and brightening city lights of Tucson from around the fire pit on chilly evenings.
The upscale Foothills area of north Tucson has numerous resorts, golf courses, fine dining, and shopping centers, along with an abundance of hiking trails and recreation areas for those who prefer the outdoors. ‘Casa Ligera’s’ immediate neighborhood features high-end, quality homes in a beautiful, low density desert setting. The striking backdrop of the Catalina Mountains cannot be missed anywhere in the neighborhood or the Foothills.

Mount Lemmon is about one hour from Casa Ligera and is the southernmost ski area in the country. The drive is dramatic, gaining elevation from about 2,600 feet to 8,000 feet, and traveling from the warm desert landscape to cool pine forests. Skiing is typically open from late December to March or April, and in the summer there is hiking, camping, fishing and birding.
Shop till you drop at one of the most notable and popular shopping centers in Tucson, La Encantada, which is an upscale, open air center with premier dining, a gourmet grocery store and many great retail outlets - only 15 minutes from the property!
Downtown Tucson and the University of Arizona are located about 30 minutes from ‘Casa Ligera’.
