Our 2 BR 2 bath adobe home is located in a private 20 acre community close to the Rillito River walking/biking trails, a large resource park with wildlife trails and a labyrinth. Our front yard looks out to a "grassy circle" surrounded by mature shade trees, a community gathering space for for neighbors to chat and dogs to play. Out back yard is very private with large shade trees, some plantings (cactus, native grasses) and flowers. There is a lovely never crowded community pool.
We are right next door to the Tucson Racquet Club, a great workout facility with 2 pools, a huge variety of classes and tennis and racquet ball courts. Monthly membership availalbe
Community neighbors are friendly and helpful - it is not a co-housing community but has a simlar feel.
We are about 15 min from downtown Tucson, 10 min from The Loft theater, a real Tucson treasure , and a few miles to all shopping including two weekend farmer's markets and Trader Joes, Whole Foods etc. Tucson restaurants and music scene are excellent as is the marvelous park system.
We have 3 cats, 2 siamese (Ping and Pong) and a Tabby (LC). All are indoor/outdoor and there is a cat door. Our 10# pug/chihuahua-pug cross, Lily, might be home - not decided yet. We also feed the birds, including the hummingbirds. Taking care of the animals and watering the plants will take very little time. We have an irrigation system and only a very few plants need hand watering.
