Tucson Street Car is now running! It is less than ½ mile from the home.
This stunning home was featured in Home and Garden Magazine.
The home was also used in the filming of Spin, a film by Jamie Redford, Robert's son.
It was also showcased in the Sundance Catalog.
Long before the 1853 Gadsden Purchase placed southern Arizona under U.S. jurisdiction, the city of Tucson was a Spanish colonial outpost. When Mexico achieved independence in 1821, Tucson became part of the new country.
Those transnational links survive in downtown's Barrio Historico, whose 150
adobe row houses make up our country's largest collection of traditional Sonoran architecture.
The 20-block neighborhood is entered on the national Historic Register.
Explore on foot, making sure to light a candle at the outdoor shrine to El Tiradito, a herder who was killed in a lover's dispute in 1870. According to legend, pilgrims whose candles stay lit through the night will see their wishes come true.
Nearby, El Minuto Cafe, est. 1936, dishes out Sonoran cuisine as
authentic as the neighborhood.
'It's (Barrio Libre) a perfect place to celebrate the contributions
of Mexican immigrants to American culture.' *USA Today May 15, 2005*
This Amazing Historic home is a rare Spanish Colonial home built in 1880 and thoughtfully restored less than 5 years ago.
The adobe walls of the massive structure are over 2 feet thick and almost 20
feet high. The ceilings are covered with Saguaro ribs and topped with over 2 feet of concrete which replaced the dirt that was used as insulation in the 1880's.
Traditional period Spanish/Mexican religious art adorn the walls. See more pictures, please email and I will send you the link to the home's email address.
Christmas and Thanksgiving weeks price is $2,595 Plus $250 Cleaning fee.

Amazing place, amazing host! Don't miss this!Amazing place, amazing host! Don't miss this!
After staying in the Convent house, my husband and I want to get a fountain in our bedroom too! Yes, there is a fountain in the master bedroom. The bathrooms were gorgeous. The icing on the cake was the kitchen and especially the amazing appliances. Usually I wouldn't really bother about this in a rental, but the gas range and the fridge and even the dishwasher were incredible! So this is a great house for cooks too.
Finally, the location was perfect for us.
We could walk to many things in downtown Tucson (which is becoming something of a hipster paradise--many cool bars and restaurants), including a number of museums, shopping at Old Town Artisans Plaza, the new streetcar line, etc.
We can't wait to go back to the Convent House. A perfect spot for a getaway with family or friends.
Thank you for everything Craig!
