$2,950,000 • 9.38 acres
THE FINEST EQUESTRIAN ESTATE AVAILABLE IN TUCSON, ARIZONA! An authentic old world hacienda nestled in a lush 9.38 acre mesquite bosque at the prestigious northeast La Cebadilla Estates neighborhood. This remarkably rare riparian property creates the perfect private, tranquil, luxuriant setting that is so elusive in the Tucson desert. A private gated entry to a long tree lined driveway, beautiful landscaping and wrap around porches surround all the fabulous masonry buildings on the property. There is a gorgeous entry courtyard with fountain, resort style grounds and massive, majestic mesquite trees. It would be tremendously challenging, time consuming and almost impossible to obtain permits to build this home today on similar land, if it was even available. This is a turnkey equestrian estate that features a 4,349 sq ft main house with Oregon Douglas Fir beams and high ceilings throughout with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, a 990 sq ft guest house with one bedroom, one bath and kitchen. It includes a detached garage and a 668 sq ft studio suitable for a private living area, home office or gym and with an attached, separate work shop. The quality of construction is impeccable. There is a large pebble tech swimming pool, numerous patios, lawns, flowers and mature plantings. Rounding out the resort back yard is a covered outdoor kitchen and BBQ with incredible stone work that must be seen. The property is served by city water but also has a private well for the irrigation and pool and there are surface water rights. The entire home, yard and pool is wheelchair accessible. The 5 stall masonry barn (all with turnouts) is built to veterinary equine standards, with roll up breezeway doors, separate dry feed room also with a roll up door, hot and cold water wash rack area and a tack room with bathroom facilities. A separate hay barn accommodates 5+ squeezes of hay storage. The land is perimeter fenced and has cross fenced pastures for horse turnouts and is one of the few parcels approved for livestock at La Cebadilla Estates. This is also one of the rare parcels without any equestrian easements on it. There is also a wonderful regulation dressage arena. It has an on site riding trail and direct access to 1.5 mile commercial riding trail. There is direct access to the Tanque Verde Wash and just a 10 minute trail ride to Saguaro National Monument East. There is also access to a beautiful, private fishing lake. This is a true horse lover's paradise in the most equine friendly neighborhood in Southern Arizona. It is also perfect for bird watchers and anyone desiring a private mesquite bosque and a serene lifestyle located in the coveted Tanque Verde Wash riparian area. With all of this you will not want to leave but there are excellent schools, shopping and restaurants within a 10 minute drive. Nearby, there are other popular outdoor recreational attractions for endless riding, hiking, birding, ATVs at Redington Pass, Mt. Lemmon, Sabino Canyon, Seven Falls, Tanque Verde Falls and many more including hundreds of thousands of acres of the Coronado National Forest in the Rincon and Catalina Mountains and the Saguaro National Monument.
