$1,200,000

Description

Absolute jewel in Tucson’s oldest neighborhood, Barrio Viejo. Rarely does a house of this quality become available. This 1898 adobe treasure has been lovingly and thoughtfully restored, brought to pristine condition, with every nod to its historic heritage. The zaguan entryway and living room have soaring ceilings boasting original saguaro ribs and exposed beams. Incredible attention to sustainability, such as double 800-gallon water-harvesting tanks, on-demand hot water, and whole house reverse osmosis water treatment. Attention to comfort includes radiant heat in the master bath floor and a heated towel rack. The master bedroom is stunning with acathedral ceiling. Formal dining room, chef’s kitchen, two art studio/bedroom spaces. The casita is easily converted to a guesthouse. Cont. The backyard is an oasis of outdoor living amenities, with two areas for entertaining, raised garden beds, sparkling fountain, and an original shrine that has stood the test of time. Behind the garden wall is the covered parking for two cars, casita and security fence. The driveway in from Rubio is gated with remote control and has permanent easement. In all, everything your heart could desire, in the heart of the barrio.
