A true oasis in Northwest Tucson! Designed by renowned architect Gary Williams, this hand-crafted, mud adobe hacienda will make your jaw drop. Imagine spending your evening taking in beautiful Tucson sunsets from sweeping covered porches, which provide an ideal entertainment space in the desert. Or quiet nights can be spent inside, enjoying the natural light that refracts through the gorgeous, hand-crafted glass-paned doors. Everywhere you walk on this property, you encounter rustic, natural charm, captured in a house built less than 20 years ago. Those familiar with mud adobe construction will immediately recognize that this craftsmanship would be impossible to recreate and many more times expensive to attempt.

This home was intentionally designed as a rustic-look hacienda, consisting of three buildings, all with soaring ceilings, and all situated around a serene desert courtyard that includes a soothing fountain and a gated pool area that is an oasis. Expansive and beautiful porches extend along almost every part of the three buildings, and two of the buildings are connected by an enormous and unique covered patio space that extends your living area. The porches have scored concrete and brick flooring, enhanced by the landscaping and lush potted plants which are part of the home and add to the visual appeal, bringing the beauty of the outside in. There is in-ground, environmentally friendly evaporative cooling for all three buildings to enhance the incredible, natural cooling effect of adobe.

There are 4000 square feet of GORGEOUS territorial-style porches wrapping around more than 3000 square feet of interior living space, all blending seamlessly with the 6.68 acres of a quiet, private, desert retreat. Everything was conscientiously built with a nod to the environment and with organically appealing construction. This SR-1 property is STUNNING, yet incredibly flexible in its layout: it would be a dream for a single family, a family compound, an AirBNB, an investment property, a rental, a homestead, or a horse property.

Building one is a breathtaking, open-space living area and kitchen. It features wood beams, scored concrete flooring, a craftsman-built, wood-burning fireplace, and a dramatic, hand-built, brick arch that leads you to the kitchen with commercial-grade range, concrete countertops and a walk-in pantry.

Building two consists of three bedrooms, each with their own full bathroom, and separate entry off the sweeping, covered porch. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet, a deep, tiled tub, a separate shower, and a custom-crafted copper sink. There is hidden storage in a loft area, and there is also a mini-split, as well as two doors that lead to the porches. The two other bedrooms in this building are generously-sized, have loft and closet storage, and rustic sinks set with concrete counters; one of the baths boasts a claw-foot tub and shower, and the other a walk-in, tiled shower.

Building three is a full guest house, complete with a mini-kitchen including a commercial stove, a flexible laundry/storage area, plus loft storage, a hand-built brick fireplace, and all-brick floor. The walls in this guesthouse are created from raw mud adobe, adding to the rustic charm of this unique property. There are two full rooms plus a full bath that features a claw-foot tub. One room is living/kitchen space, the other can work as a bedroom or fantastic home office space. Throw some wood in the fireplace on a cold night and you will feel like you have traveled back in time with the warmth of this space.

The entire property is fenced, with a solar-powered entry gate. The acreage has a drip system and features incredible landscape with mature fruit trees, herbs and flowers. This property boasts mature lemon, grapefruit, pomegranate, clementine, orange and olive trees. There are also mesquite, ironwood, palo verde, and acacia trees, and multiple, mature saguaros. If you prefer flowers, you have incredible tombstone roses, lady banks roses, jasmine and various tropicals.

Relax in the serene, quiet sounds of the desert, or in the courtyard with the relaxing sounds of the fountain. If you feel like a swim, you can walk under the beautiful, hand-crafted archway into the separately-gated pool area. Enjoy time in the pool, surrounded by lush landscaping, or sit nearby on the flagstone and sip a cold beverage while you enjoy your incredible privacy.

Thought went into making the home self-sufficient: there are two huge, grey-water cisterns (1500 gallons each), and a separate, covered, 16x24’ raised-bed garden, complete with water and electric. If there is a craftsman in the house, the huge garage/workspace with 50 amp 3-phase power will surely be exciting. The workshop/garage also boasts a huge storage container mounted on one side for tremendous, additional storage space, as well as a covered porch/additional workspace off both the back and front. And if that isn’t enough, there is a giant, 20x10’ kennel with a full, metal roof that provides a safe, contained play space for your family dogs. If you have children on the property, there is climb-on play equipment and a treehouse from which you can catch glimpses of all five mountain ranges around Tucson.

Unparallelled beauty and rustic charm are everywhere. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own this incredible home.
