Our home

Our pretty house is on one floor, with two Bedrooms, built in 1904, before Arizona was even a State. The front is shaded by two huge Palm trees, and there is one in the back garden, where all the desert birds come to feed, including, several species of hummingbird. We are in the West University Historic Area, near to the University of Arizona and the 4 th Avenue entertainment district, with many Bars and Restaurants,it is also a 15 minute walk to downtown. The House is on the Historic Register.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are both retired, in our mid to late 60's, one of us from England the other from Brasil. We love to travel, both in and outside Europe. We are have lived in Italy, England and the Hudson Valley in the USA. The people of Tucson are just great, outgoing, sincere and friendly, of course 360 days of sunshine year round does help! But avoid the "Monsoon" July and August, when temperatures can be high and little sticky. We have an "Evaporative Cooler" (sometimes called a swamp cooler), it works fine in the dry heat, but Moosoon time we need the supplement of window A/C.
