''Incredible astounding estate'' barely begins to describe this gated nature preserve with a lovely home. Who wouldn't want a fabulous luxury resort in your own backyard? The 3.2 gorgeous acres of manicured mesquite bosques and saguaros, mountain views with an elegant yet cozy home is perfect for families, multi-generational living and over-the-top entertaining. At an excellent price on Tucson's verdant and vibrant Northeast side, you have a recipe for gracious living. The entire property, named Mesquite Rose Ranch by its owners who have made huge improvements, is spectacular. This is one of the best properties we have ever seen in Tucson at this price, and we see a lot of homes! The huge back yard resort encompasses not only a large elegantly curved pool surrounded by roses and palms, but shaded patios, lush irrigated gardens, a huge entertaining pavilion with creatively shaded outdoor kitchen featuring newer large barbecue with side burners and two refrigerators + sink, large dining area (Can you imagine the fragrance of old-fashioned barbeque dinners wafting over you?), TWO firepits and an oversized covered spa for the family plus friends. And did we mention the night-lit tennis court for playing in the cooler evenings and the putting green? If that's not enough, walk through one of the rose-accented gates and down to the stream below the entertaining/recreational areas (River-front property in Arizona?). And what a great spot to see the abundant wildlife...hummingbirds galore, deer, coyotes, a resident bobcat, quail and javelina families. A tack barn is currently used for storage but could be converted into a workshop. The just-repaved elegant circular drive leads to a river-rock enclosed courtyard and full front porch welcoming guests into the one-of-a-kind home filled with history, character and charm. The very livable home, elegantly updated in soft desert tones, encompasses 4 large bedrooms, 5 baths, rich solid mesquite cabinetry throughout, and multiple spaces to gather, chat, work out, entertain and relax. From the rich entryway and through the lovely parlor with river rock fireplace, the home continues to a bar area with mesquite counter and bench, copper sink and double wide glass front refrigerator, and a lovely kitchen with handsomely shaded granite counters, Jenn-Air 6 burner gas stove, and rich mesquite cabinets overlooking the pool and gardens. A charming powder room is nearby. The family room is spacious and comfortable, great put-your-feet-up space, with an adjacent powder room. A formal dining room with a coffered ceiling providing soft lighting creates an enjoyable ambience for special dinners. Head upstairs via one of the two mesquite-step stairways for a fabulous cornucopia of living spaces. An upstairs sitting room with fireplace enjoys its own bath with a large glassed-in steam room with two levels of granite seating. There is also a dining alcove enjoying views over grounds of mesquites and to the mountains and its own terrace. A recreation/work-out room with full mirrored wall (getting these mirrors installed was an adventure!) and disco ball with bamboo flooring for dancing, should one be so inclined, is the spot for the work-out equipment. The giant master bedroom suite with sweeping mountain views and cozy sitting area by the contemporary fireplace, is fabulous....and step outside to one of the two terraces for a breath of fresh air and one more delightful spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. The master bath area is stunning, with glass door out to the private terrace, a huge Jacuzzi tub set into a gorgeous granite surround, matching granite counters including a seated make-up spot for the Princess of the home, double sinks, walk-in shower with views, and two ample walk-in closets. Even the WC has views, along with a Toto washlet commode. Three additional charming spacious bedrooms enjoy views and share a hallway raised sitting area and cozy hallway bench and a large full bath. The laundry is nearby, how sensible-No carrying laundry up the stairs! Art niches and shelves for books and art abound, as does storage space. Flooring throughout the home is a handsome combination of 12" rich slate tiles, richly polished mesquite, and carpeting in guest bedrooms. There's no HOA but the neighbors keep everything looking great and there is much pride of ownership. The neighborswatch out for each other and are friendly. It's horse territory and they often see neighbors out for a stroll on their horses. The subdivision name of La Bella Vista certainly seems appropriate! Additional history: When the owners purchased this property, the back yard was an empty pool and nothing else. They got married in the rather bare backyard and then set to work to create the oasis that you will see now. Beautiful furniture may be available per a separate bill of sale. Truly a labor of love! Call us today for your private showing. Current appraisal of $925,000 by Ira Gold appraiser is available upon request.
