Majestic ancient palm trees grace a broad circular driveway leading to the gated courtyard entry to a truly magnificent Foothills home. Picture multiple sweeping flagstone terraces and patios with wrap-around views of Tucson's many mountain ranges, close-enough-to-touch panoramas of the Catalinas and a gorgeous turquoise pool overlooking Tucson's sparkling city lights. Add to this a fabulous, impeccably maintained elegant home boasting custom travertine inset floors, multiple wood-burning fireplaces in and out, room to entertain a crowd or raise a family in comfort and pleasure, plus walking distance to La Encantada for dining, shopping and galleries, and walking distance to Manzanita Elementary School, one of Tucson's best elementary schools. A spacious entry hall leads to private flagstone patio, a generous formal living room with a large stone fireplace, and a gracious dining room with doors and windows providing more gorgeous views and access to yet another flagstone patio. The open and flowing kitchen-great room-breakfast area- bar is fabulous, with views over the terraces and pool to the Rincon Mountains, downtown Tucson and the Santa Rita Mountains. Doors are screened to allow cool breezes to flow through the living area. The kitchen and bar area have richly shaded granite counters which continue into the full butler pantry and adjacent powder room. Pull-out drawers enhance the alder cabinetry in the kitchen, bar and butler pantry. Handsome stacked stone columns accent the area, as do pendant lights over the counter bar. The stainless-steel kitchen sink provides instant hot water and cooled filtered water. The full butler pantry provides additional storage, a second dishwasher, stainless-steel sink and microwave. A small powder room is adjacent, also with granite counters and alder cabinetry. A large laundry room has space for crafts or projects and includes an additional refrigerator. The garage is also oversized and provides yet more storage. The true "piece de la resistance" of this spectacular home is the outdoor area, a mÃ©lange of flagstone and brick covered and open terraces, planters and irrigated lawn spaces on multiple levels, an outdoor kitchen and a handsome wood-burning fireplace, all surrounded by pueblo brick walls that echo the natural desert colors and set off the perfect elegant turquoise pool. Not to mention the up-close-and-personal views of the famed Finger Rock formation of the Catalina Mountains from this totally private area. Watching the city lights start to turn on at sunset is a mesmerizing meditative experience, sufficient to make your heart sing. On a clear day, or night, you can indeed see forever, or so it seems. Call the caterers, bring on the string quartet and let's have an event! Yes, there's more inside to enjoy. The spacious master suite includes a large stacked stone surrounded fireplace, a generous sitting area, a walk-in closet fit for a Princess (just add sparkly chandeliers!), another private patio and a substantial executive office with handsome built-in shelving and doors out to another private enclosed courtyard patio. The master bath is amazing, with rich charcoal granite counters and raised tub surround and as accents in the travertine floors, all reflected in walls of mirrors. Watch the sun rise onto Finger Rock while brushing your teeth! A large walk-in shower provides FOUR shower heads and a bench. Three additional large bedrooms are located down a separate hall, one with an en-suite bath and another full bath for the other two bedrooms. And did we mention LOCATION, in the middle of everything, with easy access to downtown dining and entertainment, excellent medical services, and just a few minutes to the best middle school and high school in Tucson? SO, what are you waiting for? We would be delighted for you to preview this fabulous home TODAY!
