Enveloped in serenity, privacy and tranquility, this meticulously rebuilt home in ''soon-to-be 24-hour guard gated'' Tucson Country Club Estates provides harmonious timeless design with rich materials and an open-concept floorplan that enables modern casual living and entertaining with abundant private spaces. Distinctive craftmanship and generously proportioned rooms combined with abundantly luxurious and high-tech amenities create an opportunity for exceptional living in a well-regarded long-established upscale community with a neighborhood Country Club that provides a sense of community and an exceptional golf course. Arrive at this gracious home via the circular drive surrounded by ancient mesquite trees and islands of flowers (Irrigated with reclaimed water). Be welcomed through stately double doors into the handsome art gallery entry with 22-foot ceilings. The comfortably elegant great room focuses equally on the large wood-burning stone fireplace and the built-in entertainment center, with more well-lit art gallery space above. Enjoy surround sound music here and high-quality amplified sound to every room and outdoors---just ask Alexa to play your favorites! The kitchen is a dream. The brightly lit space features seemingly endless counter space in beautiful Mascarello granite. The most discerning chef will appreciate the 2018 installed high-end appliances that include a french door convection double oven, Thermador 36" range top with a built-in grill, Thermador built-in french door refrigerator, two drawer GE monogram undercounter refrigerator and wine fridge. Every detailed has been considered when designing the kitchen including cabinets that have pull out trays and extra storage in the chic yet comfortable upholstered window seat that overlooks the resort-like backyard. You will even find both a double sink and a prep sink along with a pot filler to make cooking a real joy. There's plenty of room to enjoy a meal or even be part of the preparation at the 6-person island next to the double-sided gas fireplace. You will definitely see yourself sitting here with some friends and sharing a glass of wine or two. You will be amazed with the oversized pantry which offers multiple entry points including from the kitchen via a glass frosted door or from the backbone of the home, the central hallway. The other side of the fireplace faces a large dining room with a large picture window, along with a wet bar featuring more gorgeous granite, hammered brass bar sink, abundant storage and a beverage refrigerator. While the heart of the home is the kitchen, adjoining greatroom and dining room, you have easy access to the bedrooms via a long broad hallway that exposes a romantic courtyard framed by picture windows opposite two guest bedrooms sharing a spacious guest bath. Continuing along the hallway you find perhaps the "rock star" of this home, a high-ceilinged library, lined with fabulous floor-to-nearly ceiling richly shaded built-in wooden bookshelves, a deliciously cozy spot to enjoy a delicate crystal glass of tawny port on a chilly evening. Like in the family room, here too you will find a wood burning, gas-ignite fireplace. The adjacent office, also finished in handsome wood, is small but efficient with wrap-around desk/computer space, locking file cabinets and views of verdant gardens. Adjacent is the sumptuously appointed master suite, with another window looking into the treasure-box outdoor courtyard (this is not a cookie-cutter designed home!), a double-sided fireplace that provides warmth and ambiance for both the large master bedroom and master bath. The master bedroom features multiple windows for plenty of light and blackout shades for the light sleeper. Enjoy the spacious master bath with handsome wood cabinetry and a sybaritic Jacuzzi spa tub for two overlooking the fireplace. The large walk-in shower offers a plethora of showering options and sprays. A generously sized cedar-lined walk-in closet is present, as to be expected in such a setting. The other wing of this distinctive split-plan home includes another master suite with full bath and walk-in closet, and a 5th bedroom with full bath currently used as an office. Lots of details to note: the window and door surrounds are distinctively carved wood; don't miss the kitty door at the base of the hall utility closet! The dog door is electronic and burglar-proof, as would be designed by two Silicon Valley tech veterans. Outdoors is delightful, with more mature mesquite trees (do we hear a tree-house calling?), 7 fruit trees and privacy provided around the entire perimeter of the abundantly shaded backyard. The very private backyard provides a free-form saltwater pool with solar heating, beach landing, and a delightful waterfall feature and a handsome gazebo with fireplace that adds an elegant yet cozy spot to relax. A large barbecue has spotlight lighting for the cook. Floors are easily maintained large-format neutral ceramic tiles and hickory wide wood planks. There is an abundance of storage throughout the home. Advanced home automation includes LED lighting, with voice or app control for lights along with temperature control, irrigation and appliances. Landscaping is low-maintenance and irrigated with reclaimed water. There is something for everyone in this home which even has a greenhouse and a storage shed. All sewers, piping and electrical wiring are new per the 2002 rebuild, which removed all of the original 1960's home except for one wall. Some of the furniture and artwork may be available on a separate bill of sale. This is the sort of old fashioned neighborhoods in which lifelong friends and memories are the norm. Multiple generations choose to raise their families here because they know their children will have the same warm and social experiences that they had growing up here. Public schools serving homes in Tucson Country Club are some of the best in Tucson, and the area is also in proximity to excellent private school options. Please see the excellent video for further details, and call for a private showing at your earliest convenience.
