Hand-made Architectural Masterpiece
Our first step out of the downtown and midtown historic areas is this stunning residence handcrafted from locally quarried stone set on a saguaro studded 3.5 acre parcel in the Tucson Mountains. History abounds in this c. 1941 Lazy C Ranch Estates home built by local brothers Richard & Robert Canfield. Their family had an original homestead in the Tucson Mountains, created the Lazy C Water service which is still in use today, used stone mined from their own quarry, and developed numerous properties in the area.
The remarkable quality of construction of this home is on display with thoughtful details in the stone work, huge rough-hewn gable beams, architectural elements, and the noticeable lack of any cracking. It feels absolutely as solid as the day it was built. The parcel could not be any more beautiful with natural plant species, views in every direction, and privacy. A quick 5-10 minute drive takes you to shopping, dining, and the freeway.Prime west foothills area Mature native vegetation with specimen plants Secluded yet neighbors in distance Mountain vistas and city views Biking and hiking routes nearby Property Highlights 2 Bedrooms / 2 Bathrooms / 1,793 SF Solid stone construction with original stone & concrete floors Original doors and casement windows in pristine condition Elegant gabled ceiling with rough hewn beams Roof deck with amazing views in every direction Open kitchen / dining space with pantry Courtyard with patio 3.5 acres of botanical garden quality land No HOA Close 5-10 minute drive to shopping & city life This property has been sold.
