A stunning one-of-a-kind retreat perched high in the Catalina Foothills in the shadow of famed Finger Rock, with Old Tucson charm yet masterfully and tastefully updated, with the potential to be multi-generational or to accommodate a private practice with a separate entrance, is now available for your perusal. It's on a cul-de-sac with very little traffic, fabulous privacy and an opportunity for quiet enjoyment of nature. A welcoming front terrace is a delightful spot to relax and enjoy the views and lights of downtown Tucson. Enter into an open foyer with a glassed-in stairway to lower level, a bright and airy space that could accommodate a tall sculpture or mobile. With a unique floor plan, the two levels of this charming home provide multiple spots to live and gather. The entry level provides a full living area with kitchen, powder room, dining room, breakfast nook, living room, large master suite, guest room with en-suite bath, and a wonderful rear terrace with fireplace and reach-out- and-touch views of Finger Rock and the Catalinas. The lower level is fabulous, with another large master suite, two additional bedrooms, a den and office/study/ library area, a stunning wet bar and a 600-bottle wine cellar. On the entry level, be sure to look up to view the 9' tall handsomely beamed wormwood ceilings. And note the genuine hardwood flooring as well. The kitchen is stylishly updated with handsome Brazilian stone counters and stainless Kitchen Aid appliances including 2 convection ovens and a six burner gas stove. There is a prep sink in the island, pull-out features in lower cabinets, built-in tray and lid storage, and a terrific walk-in pantry. Leaded glass cabinet doors add extra charm. Enjoy breakfast or supper looking out to the gorgeously landscaped rear yard and up to Finger Rock and the other peaks of the Catalinas. Even an adjacent powder room has "OMG" views! The dining room is a warm and comfortable space with views of lush desert plantings, city lights and the distant mountains to the south, with a sliding glass door out to the entry terrace. The graciously large living room is focused on the handsome Canterra stone wood-burning fireplace which is one of many warm gathering spots. Double glass doors lead to the rear terrace with another welcoming fireplace, overlooking the gorgeously landscaped rear yard and with wrap-around stunning views of the Catalinas and the mountains of East Tucson. The upstairs master suite likewise opens to this terrace and also enjoys views toward the mountains of East Tucson. With a brick wall, richly shaded built-in bookshelves and entertainment center and a sitting area, it's a welcoming space. An en-suite second bedroom also enjoys a custom sink set in an antique-style bureau. Head down the polished wooden stairs to enjoy the lower level for the large open family room with polished brick floors and adjacent study/office space. French doors lead out to a lower level screened-in patio, or "Arizona Room" with cozy with another charming fireplace surrounded by custom tilework and direct access to the gardens and multiple sitting areas in the yard. A lap pool (with a motorized pool cover) with 4 "endless" jets for exercise is also in the yard. Back inside, the generously sized wet bar with gorgeous glass tile top beckons. Beyond is the 600 bottle wine cellar, behind hermetically sealed glass doors, that won a design award from Sunset Magazine. It's lovely, elegantly lit and has room for a couple of bistro tables for wine tastings. What a spot to entertain! Nearby, a substantially sized 2nd master bedroom has handsome custom wood-framed glass doors out to the Arizona Room. The master bath for this suite is handsomely remodeled with travertine floors and travertine lining the glassed-in contemporary shower. Sinks are set in attractive antique-style bureaus with marble tops. The oval soaking tub enjoys views across the Valley to the East Tucson mountains. A fourth bedroom features Saltillo tiles and accesses a full bath with glassed-in updated shower and another sink set in an antique style bureau, each one unique. A fifth bedroom is presently outfitted as a "Closet For A Princess" with shelving, hanging space, a make-up table and its' own large walk-in closet; this space could be easily converted back into another bedroom. A large laundry room features an oversized stainless-steel utility sink. The rear yard features multiple sitting areas, one with a motorized shade and another inside a gazebo, and is a quiet private respite with only the sounds of the birds. There is an RV-capable garage (up to 31' RV) with an air-conditioned workshop, sink and loft, with an observation deck on top of the garage....wrap-around views of the entire Tucson Valley! Note the on-site parking for 3-4 vehicles, with stunning entry gardens leading up to the home. A couple of technical details: the exterior walls of the lower level are thick concrete block covered with fire brick so the downstairs stays cool...low electrical costs! Upper level and garage is adobe brick. There is a water pressure regulator and recirculating pump for the downstairs master shower. The upper deck is coated with an elastomeric coating that was professionally applied and will not be broken down by UV rays. Dual zone Trane heat pumps with dual zone thermostats were recently installed. Motorized pool cover keeps out debris and reduces costs for chemicals. Of course, the location is "prime" with District 16 schools, easy access to the many amenities of the Foothills, and also to Tucson's excellent medical care. You are invited to come take a look, and to consider building your family's memories here as the current owners so enjoyed doing.
