Arizona Move -- Part 4, The New House

That is actually an older house built in 1962 and will be the 4th mid-century built home that we've purchased in the last 24 years. These vintage homes have a certain comfy, irresistible feel to us so even with their wonky layouts, we were sold on this one on the first visit. The house is a burnt adobe brick with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths sitting on a high slope in the northern hills of Tucson. The 2-car garage (added well after the house was built as were the guest quarters, office and workshop complete the property compound with another 3/4 acre natural desert on the north slope. There is a pool, covered patio, mature landscaping and a huge laundry room/sewing room/storage area (that would be "my" space). Mostly everything is dated with the exception of the kitchen that was updated in the 1990s. We will be gutting and remodeling the entire kitchen to open it up to the main living space and to capture some of the natural light.

Here are some photos of the house in its "before" state. The last photo is where my garden bench and outdoor creative space will be... my "she shed" if you will. :)
