About this listing
Our 5 bedroom, 3.5 bedroom oasis, with a pool, on 4.5 acres.
Surrounded by mountains, a 4+ acre former horse ranch, now "hacienda estate" (4-5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths), newly renovated by a team of Tucson's top architect, designer, and contractor, this family home welcomes guests (up to three people per suite) in two private master suites, plus two twin bedrooms and a sleeping den. There are also sleeping benches for kids in the living room and a couch in the family room. If you want to pack 12 in Two Birds, the house can handle you.
This ranch property is a well-known Tucson landmark, purchased from actor Gary Shandling (his mother's home). It represents the best of Old Pueblo, 100 percent updated to be both luxurious and rustic, and features new glazed concrete and tile floors throughout.
This is our dream home for the future. One "master" bedroom features a king-sized bed, the second master has a queen-sized bed. It is stocked with fine linens, antiques, a television (and wireless internet), and all new bathrooms: tiles to die for. The two twin bedrooms share a third bath, and there is a powder room off the family room. And our den is stocked with a brand new blow-up bed.
The landscaped pool is completely gated and fenced in, and our book shelves are well stocked.
Enjoy city lights from the rooftop viewing porch; listen carefully to hear neighborhood horses (and coyotes). Our eclectic art collection is featured throughout the house.
We're about 7 minutes from civilization (and 20 easy minutes to the University and Downtown). Our home is straight off the style pages, Tucson-style. Stay 1 night, 1 week, or 1 month. Please NO smokers. Well-behaved kids welcome.
Our house is your house when you rent it. The only thing that is off limits is the hot tub jets because no one has been able to fix them. The pool is working.
