Open House in Colonia Solana

Open Sunday, February 12 from 1 to 4 PM. From Broadway and Country Club, go south on Country Club. East on Via Palos Verdes to 3135 E Via Palos Verdes.

Colonia Solana is my favorite Central Tucson neighborhood. Linda Ronstadt used to own a home here. The one acre lots have native vegetation, the huge vintage houses have real character, and Arroyo Chico provides daily wildlife sightings. I used to roller blade around in here when I lived across Country Club Road in the more humble Broadmoor neighborhood. It's walking distance to all the plays and festivals in Reid Park, too.

With a corner fireplace, the 23' x 15' living room is open to the 13' x 13' dining area. The garage-sized studio has high ceilings and lots of soft light. Beamed ceilings, polished concrete floors and retro bath tile. The 38' x 10' Arizona Room is accessible from the large master suite and through a wall of north-facing windows in the living/dining room.

At under $120/SF, this is a real value in a prestigious neighborhood.
