Tucson is Hip

Thus saith the San Francisco Chronicle. Of course, this is not news to us, but it's gratifying when a visitor recognizes our fabulosity and reports it without a trace of snark. The writer really did track down some of our unique culture: Dunbar Spring, Hotel Congress, the thrift stores, BICAS, Antigone Books, Barrio Anita, the Ansel Adams collection. Makes me smile to think of all the other special places, people and events that are found no where else but here in the Baked Apple.

1840 W Calle Tranquila

Wonderful neighborhood of well-maintained masonry homes. Fantastic location less than two miles from downtown, a bit further to UofA, a few blocks to Pima CC, and three miles to Gates Pass Road into Saguaro National Monument.

Sliders from living room and hall open to huge porch with Catalina Mountain view. Ceramic tile throughout.
Remodeled eat-in kitchen with cool mosaic backsplash.

Master bedroom features walk-in closet, corner window and a door to the porch. Abundant storage in the carport. Two bedrooms, one bath. Air conditioning. Sold for $120,000 on June 20, 2013. I represented the buyers and the seller. That's the happy new homeowners on the swing in the photo above.
