Our 2013 Renovation Project:
827 N. 4th Ave.,Tucson, AZ 85705
A RARE FIND:
Best area, street and block in Tucson!
A historic Mini Mansion on 4th Avenue in the middle of Tucson, just north of University Blvd., in the sought-after West University district, half a block from park, trolley and walking distance to downtown. We were assigned a "Walking Score" of 86 (that's being in the top 3% in Tucson's best locations).
This gem is set on a 0.27 acre deep lot 60' x 185', zoned HR3, which means the Zoning Department lets you add another 2 bedroom guest house plus garages (70% lot coverage allowed) and you still have room for a green house, vegetable gardens fed by the new rain water harvesting tank, or pool, you name it (our construction crew is standing by for your custom additions).
We were very careful to keep the old charm feeling of 1906, yet the high-tech comfort of today with emphasis of healthy, sustainable living
without disturbing the architecture.
This home has, among other qualities, a very flowing floor plan with - for the period -unusual large rooms, a separate lock-off unit in back with separate entrance, and the cutest upper floor (bamboo) with dormers as well as two skylights, a large bedroom, study and cute bath.
It took interviewing seven (7!) air condition companies to find one that integrated the new, high-efficient 5-ton 15 Sear unit so flawlessly that you can't see any traces on the beamed ceilings and you don't hear any sound when in operation.
A modern large open kitchen and dining area invite to entertaining inside and outside. An extra nook was created to accommodate and hide the refrigerator. Beautiful as well as forgiving tiles were chosen.
Green Features: we added blue gutters and a water harvesting tank for the fruit trees and future vegetable and flower gardens (plenty of room for that too). Other environmental concerns are addressed by using no VOC paints nor glues, ideal for the allergy and sensitive ones.
There are too many features to describe. Saying three bedrooms, three baths on a dividable huge lot up to Herbert Street for only $369,000 (including a $10,000 allowance for custom finish) just doesn't do it. So, if you are interested in what you have seen here and are considering to become the new owner of this beautiful multi-purpose property, please contact us for your individual appointment.
