The 2,216 sq ft main house has been beautifully restored and offers 3 bedrooms, three baths and amazing views from the plentiful large windows. Four guest casitas have been similarly restored and now welcome guests and return visitors. Central to the property is the Olympic sized pool, 3,200 square foot pool deck area for relaxation and hosting gatherings and an over- sized Pool house. The pool house offers a quiet respite, a library, board games or if you're in the mood, a game of pool. The property is bordered by State and Federal lands and offers beautiful vistas as well as the opportunity for horseback riding, Biking, hiking, exploring and more in the shadow of the Rincon Mountains. Additional amenities feature a relaxing Koi pond and waterfall, multiple benched areas, firepits, outdoor shower facilities and the stars are big and bright. Property may be used in many ways including a commercial stable or riding school, group foster home, natural reserve, church, fraternity, family compound or a weekend warrior guest ranch. The old farm house on the property could become a chapel and used as a destination location for weddings, events and family gatherings or restored to a single family home. With the existing dining hall on the property, anything is possible. There is also the possibility for RV sites with the availability of many more spaces to be added. Currently very low taxes but may be lowered with historic status or possibly a grazing lease. The property is zoned as RH-Rural Homestead by Pima County allowing residential or commercial purposes and has 26 permitted uses. As with any Business or Nonprofit: Buyers intended uses and site selection will be completely responsible for their own due diligence.
