2001 W Calle Armenta
It's been a long time since I've seen a house this nice in this price range in Tucson. With short sales and foreclosures dominating the under $200,000 market, entering this lovely owner-occupied home is a stunning relief.
First, there's the great old Desert Hills neighborhood, three miles east of the David Yetman Trailhead, and less than three miles west of U of A. This is why I love the west side of Tucson. You can have nature and urban amenities at the same time.
Burnt adobe construction, a fireplace in the living room, a real dining room, and beautifully upgraded kitchen and bathrooms are just for starts. The back porch has been enlarged so now it actually has room for monsoon watching and year round dining. The gigantic back yard has been professionally xeriscaped, and features a raised vegetable garden.
Three bedrooms, two baths, 1,409 square feet. Sold February 6 for $185,000. Listed by Donna Moulton, Realty Executives Southern Arizona.
