3 BR, 2.5 bath home on 5 acres in mountain foothills, gorgeous scenery
About Chris Brodrick
We love the desert southwest of America and Tucson. The wildlife, the desert landscapes, and the rich cultural history of the area are what drew us here.
Chris Brodrick purchased this House in 2009
Why Chris Brodrick chose Tucson
We purchased the home years ago. It needed a little attention at the time, so we gave the home the TLC it deserved. After building the pool and outdoor terraced landscaping, we wanted to share the beauty of the place.

Photos do not do it justice
The house and immediate environment are wonderful: comfortable, well provisioned, engaging, and far more beautiful than the photos. The wildlife is especially great at dawn and dusk ... make sure to get comfortable and sit still: magical things happen all around you. The Catalina Mountains are mesmerizing at sunset. And all of Tucson an easy traffic-free drive. Even Mt Lemmon is a fun drive both ways. Chris B. was a perfect host from afar.
Beautiful home with amazing views!
My husband and I, along with another couple enjoyed this beautiful home for a week in April. The house was immaculate and fully stocked with everything and anything we may have needed. The beds were extremely comfortable and waking up to the sunrise outside our window every morning was breathtaking.
We used the hot tub every night to star gaze, what a sight! The pool was a bit chilly still, so we only braved it a few times.
Lots of wildlife to be seen, and we looked forward to hearing the coyotes howl at night. Lots of quail, doves and hummingbirds came to visit and sip from the pool. The view from this place is unbelievable! We took lots and lots of pictures.
Thank you Chris for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.
Great desert retreat
Pictures do not do this place justice. As an early riser was able to catch sky-on-fire sunrises nearly every morning. Property was clean, well-maintained and well-stocked. Very Private. Challenging hiking is all of about 8 minutes away by car, and a cool outdoor museum is only 30 minutes out. I will say that the property is better suited for two couples rather than three as the third bedroom is more of an office with a (comfortable) bed. Chris was very resposnsive with correspondence and I always felt he was only a phone call away if needed. We will definitely be back!
Always a good stay.
We spend 3 weeks each year during the Tucson Gem & Mineral show.
It's a great place to stay and we feel right at home in the quiet solitude of the desert!
The home has everything we need to be comfortable.
I recommend it!
Returned a second time to a great property. Highly recommend!
Spacious, light, bright, clean and comfortable. Home is west of interstate, about 3-4 miles, up the hill a bit, with beautiful views of the valley to the east and most of Tuscon, far enough from the freeway that traffic noise does not reach the home. As advertised, pictures do not do justice to the desert beauty. As owner tells us, the last bit of road and drive (aggregate) include some twists and turns, but after first trip seems normal and easy. Home is spacious, with split bedrooms wings, a large and functional kitchen, large dining table, large laundry room, access to use garage, and very large, multi tiered outdoor areas. Plenty of kitchen stuff, towels, linens, etc. the only 'short comings' are not many outdoor chairs, and only three seats in indoor living area. The owner is great to respond to questions, and any perceived needs of occupants. We found the town access to be quite easy, maybe a bit farther than in town properties, but beautiful and quiet, did I emphacize quiet? wonderful peace and quiet Would choose this property again, should we be near Tucson.
