1896 Historic Adobe building was a Bakery before it was artistically converted into a unique and stylish 2 bedroom, 2 bath home. Spacious (1700 sq ft) with no 'germ laden' public or shared doors or spaces. WHO SHOULD STAY IN THE BAKERY? The traveler who appreciates unique, authentic spaces, but also values comfort and cleanliness. Who wants a quiet, private retreat in the middle of all the action. Perfect for two couples, families with children over the age of 12, or multi generational relatives. THE SPACE- Lofty beam ceilings and exposed adobe brick. A huge great room, natural stone floors, beautiful old growth cedar doors and molding. Luxury linens, quality glassware, new beds and sofas, a sprinkling of antiques, custom made furniture, original artwork, designer lighting with a...1896 Historic Adobe building was a Bakery before it was artistically converted into a unique and stylish 2 bedroom, 2 bath home.

Basement den used to be a root cellar, and has a daybed for naps away from it all, but is not counted as a bedroom. Front bathroom has tub, second bathroom has low threshold shower and ADA sink. Both have new, elevated toilets and new shower fixtures. Two brand new air conditioning/forced gas heat units, A TYPICAL DAY Breakfast in the warm Tucson sun, in your private enclosed garden courtyard. Linger over coffee under the Seville orange tree. Walk 3 blocks down to Tucson's oldest Yoga Studio for a morning class. Tour the local Radio station on the next block, housed in an old Victorian along with an impressive collection of old vinyl. Stroll over to bohemian North 4th Ave for original shopping. Visit the art Museum. A short streetcar ride/walk further brings you to the UA Back home again in your adobe fortress,browse the internet at the gathering table in the huge, light filled great room, while watching the bikes and pedestrians pass by your huge picture windows. The west window gives a perfect view of the brilliant pink and orange Tucson sunsets. Invite your friends or colleagues over for drinks before strolling to the entertainment district for dinner and a streetcar to a UA basketball game. If you are tired of dining out, you can bar-b-que on the natural gas grill in your private courtyard. The train passes by at just the right distance...romantic rumbling evoking memories, but not too loud. It's a quiet neighborhood, with sidewalks and trees. People walk and cycle by. Because of the low humidity, the desert night sky is brilliant. (Which is why there are several observatories in the area.)More
