Listing #khf6016 Asking: $423,000
This is an Arizona dream . . . a gorgeous custom built Santa Fe style 3/2 home with solar heated swimming pool, and attached 10 run dog kennel, allowing you to pursue your love of dogs full-time!
Located within 20 miles Tucson, on almost 5 pristine acres in the foothills of the Sierrita Mountains, with Tucson address and city water. The property overlooks state lands that will not be developed, protecting the magnificent view of Picacho Peak almost 50 miles away…and the lights of the city at night. It was perfect and wonderful… but sadly a family emergency requires the owners to return home to the east.
The house was completed in September 2007. The house has almost 1500 sq ft of living space, featuring a Great Room with living, dining and kitchen areas. The heart of the Great Room is a gorgeous slate-tiled wood burning fireplace with a raised hearth and oak mantle. Custom oak cabinets with roll-out shelves on the bottom stand and tall 42” cabinets above with beautiful corian countertops and sink, featuring a fabulous bar for easy entertaining. All new appliances featuring General Electric’s Profile Refrigerator with freezer and ice maker on the bottom, GE Profile washer and dryer, plus smooth surface GE self-cleaning range, GE dishwasher, and built-in microwave. Dog resistant laminated flooring throughout the entire house, except for the custom tile in the 2 bathrooms. Master bedroom and 2 guest bedrooms are all good sized and have ceiling fans. There is a large walk-in closet with custom shelving in the master bedroom, and both guest bedrooms also have custom shelves in their closets. Both bathrooms feature tall cultured marble sinks and countertops and tall toilets (easier on knees and backs), and large linen closets. The master bathroom also features a make-up vanity and a custom tiled walk-in shower with seat. The laundry room has above w/d cabinets for extra storage. The 2-car attached garage with electric door opener has an entire wall of shelves and a good sized storage room perfect for holiday decorations and luggage. Not included in the living sq footage is a 12’ x 18’ enclosed breezeway that attaches the kennel to the garage. The breezeway features a tongue and groove paneled ceiling with the Santa Fe style vigas and ceiling fan. A custom dog bath makes bathing the dogs a pleasure for all.
The kennel is an 18’ x 25’ concrete block structure with ten 3 ½’ x 6 ½’ runs, and still plenty of room for storage, a desk area, and satellite hook up so doggies can enjoy their Animal Planet. Each dog run has an above the ground Karunda dog bed which is included. Three large interconnecting outdoor play runs form a maze around the kennel and house—with the pool in the middle and a private fenced-in garden yard. This past fall landscaping was added, complete with underground sprinkler system on a timer, and beautiful decorative rock borders.
This is a great custom home and dog kennel in a beautiful location in the outskirts of Tucson. Tucson is a wonderful and active dog town with so many activities to enjoy with your dogs: great kennel clubs and dog shows, training clubs and trials, lots of dog parks, and a lot of really nice people who own great dogs. This is a great place to be for people who love dogs.
