Since 2014 the owners have lovingly updated the property inside and out with the goal of restoring a neighborhood treasure. Property is located in the historic Campus Farm neighborhood where the UA's agriculture station, Pima County Cooperative Extension, and Tucson Village Farm are situated. Landscaping improvements have focused on restoring the riparian features of the parcel, which is south of the Rillito River. To increase local biodiversity the owners integrated a permaculture design with a food forest emphasis in landscaping. Currently this, "farmette," can feed two families. Or the new owners can expand production to sell fruits, vegetables, and eggs at the nearby Rillito Farmer's Market (½ mile away via The Loop). Recession-proof your life with extra income by participating in Tucson's growing food economy! Soils have been greatly improved (pH microbial health through the addition of compost and organic matter). The, "regenerative," farm design incorporates the planting of native pollinator plants, cactus, and mesquite trees for wild plant food harvesting right in your backyard. This rare parcel has more than 50% shade cover from mature treeswhich helps to keep summer electricity bills loweran unusual and desirable feature in Tucson! There is room to construct a ramada on the section of the parcel to install enough solar to power both homes. Add wall batteries to the barn and go off-grid. Specific farmette features include the following: " 745 square feet of raised beds with automatic drip irrigation system (beds include buried screen mesh as critter barrier), plus room to double or triple growing area. " Organic fall vegetable garden is planted and might be ready to harvest in late fall-early winter. " Eight grape vines (also on olla irrigation).

" Deluxe chicken coop that can house 14 hens (24 allowedbuyer to confirm with the City of Tucson Ordinance No. 11328 Urban Agriculture). " Space to raise miniature goats (buyer to confirm with the City of Tucson Ordinance No. 11328 Urban Agriculture). " Nearby stables for boarding horses (and free manure). " Large custom three-bin composting system. " Water harvesting basins and wood chips across landscape to passively capture and store rainwater for trees and plants and promote soil health. " French drain gray water system for laundry connected to 1439. " Buried olla irrigation and deep stake irrigation systems installed for many trees and plants. " Four-valve programmable irrigation system serves multiple sectors; subsystems served by separate irrigation lines and timers. " Host your own farm-to-table parties for up to 40 people in private and secluded back lot garden spacejust add café lights, tables, and chairs! " There is also room for an RV on the back lot via separate gated entrance (off Green Valley Rd). Small separate septic system (conveys in as-is condition) is in proximity to electricity and water. Rent RV space for extra income or host winter visitors! List of fruit trees (22 total, including some heirloom varieties from Mission Gardens) " Grapefruit trees (4) " Meyer lemon trees (2) " Mandarin tree (1) " Sweet orange trees (3) " Blood orange trees (3) " Fig trees (2) " Limequat (1) " Kumquat (1) " Pomegranates (4) " Quince (1) List of native and desert-adapted plant varieties (*edible) " Agaves (4 varieties) " Bee bush " Bird of Paradise " Brittle bush " Cholla* " Desert Mallow " Hackberry* " Mexican Honeysuckle " Milkweed " Pineapple Guava* " Prickly pear* (6 varieties) " Night blooming cereus (3 varieties) " Ruellia (Mexican petunia) " Salvias " Sonoran lavender* " Tecoma " Tombstone Rose (very old vines dating back decades) " Wolfberry* List of tree varieties " Acacia (White thorn) " Aleppo Pine " Canyon Oak " Desert Willow " Hackberry " Mesquite* (Velvet, Screwbean) " Palo Verde* (Blue, Foothills, hybrid) " Red push pistache " Southern live oak " Sycamore List of wildlife " Bird lover's paradise! More than 25 species of birds (and counting) including a pair of breeding great horned owls, Cooper's and red-tailed hawks, lesser nightjar, 3 species of hummingbirds, quail, towhees, wrens, woodpeckers, cardinals, and rare vermilion flycatchers, hooded orioles, and peregrine falcons. " Mexican free-tailed bats aka the North Campbell Avenue bridge bats are viewable from both backyards and hunt summer flying insects. " Bobcats, coyotes, and javalina families frequent the neighborhood. Additional features: " Added 12 tons interlocking gravel on back lot driveway and common area to reduce dust and retain soil moisture. " Installed custom galvanized fences to enclose separate large yards (each home) for dogs and kids. " Multiple, separate outdoor living areas for each home (one with gas fireplace), for dining, entertaining and stargazing in this low-light neighborhood. " Beautiful views of the Santa Catalina Mountains from both homes. " Converted barn with two separate studios can be used for office space, art studios, or workshops. " Easy access to The Loop (1/2 block) for recreation or to walk or bike to Trader Joes, Sprouts Market, St. Philips Plaza, Joesler Village, Starbucks, Rillito Park & Farmer's Market, and the Tucson Village Farm. " Close commute to the UA and Medical Campus via Mountain Ave bike lane (3.6 miles), near to Cat Tran stop (Ft. Lowell and Mountain Ave) or hop on SunTran (Limberlost and Campbell Ave.). " Stables nearby for boarding horses. " A completed permaculture design for the entire property and irrigation map and manual. " Added 13 cubic yards TANK's wood chips. " Added 8 cubic yards TANK's Super Organic Soil Mix. " Cool factoid: Deeds associated with adjacent parcels indicate this area just south of the Rillito River near the Campbell Avenue Bridge was part of an 1862 agricultural land grant following the Gadsen Purchase.
