Tucked away in lovely gated Estates at High Mesa in Oro Valley, and indeed situated on a high mesa with wrap-around mountain views, is a softly Southwestern and comfortably elegant home now available for discriminating homeseekers. With traditional Southwestern features of vigas (ceiling beams), latillas (Wood strips laid across vigas), corbels (Carved tops of wood columns), and a traditional portal entry, this is an executive custom designed home with many upgrades and high-end finishes. Enter through a ''morning'' courtyard filled with roses and ready for a patio to enjoy the dramatic Pusch Ridge views that seem as if you could reach out and touch those granite peaks. The home is well set back from the street in a private setting with rich mature landscaping. Inside, three delightful sitting areas with two fireplaces and multiple mountain views provide multiple spots to gather and relax, along with the rear patio overlooking the pool, waterfall and spa. Large windows throughout the home bring in wrap-around views of the nearby Catalinas and Tortolitas, with the Tucson Mountains seen in the distance across the Tucson Valley. The dining room is just the right size for those holiday gatherings, with coffered ceiling, handsome chandelier and those views of Pusch Ridge for sunset viewing while dining. The heart of the home is the "large-enough" kitchen with granite counters, abundant storage with pullouts in the drawers and a large separate walk-in pantry, an appliance garage, handsome cabinetry and a separate desk area with glass-front cabinets. An adjacent area provides a breakfast and casual dinner spot, with the family room and its large windows and glass doors opening to the lush lawn and rose garden beyond. A double-sided fireplace also warms the "bonus" sitting area/studio/craft room, also off of the kitchen, with more glass doors opening to the rear yard and views of the pool, fountain and spa. That rear yard patio has wrap-around mountain views in all directions, providing a delicious spot to relax shaded by mature landscaping and cooled by delightful cross-breezes. A built-in BBQ is ready for grilling. Fragrant jasmine covers a side fence. On the south side of the home, a small office enjoys spectacular Pusch Ridge views across the front courtyard. The master bedroom is luxuriously spacious and overlooks the lush lawn and rose garden. The master bath is also generously sized, with double sinks plus a seated make-up counter, large Jacuzzi tub and more fabulous views between the mature trees providing privacy. A substantial closet has excellent built-in fittings. On the other side of this functionally designed home is a powder room, laundry room with storage and sink, two smaller bedrooms and an attractive full bath, and an oversized garage with a large locking storage room and plenty of room for the extra fridge. Note the custom solid wood doors throughout the home, for all entry and storage area doors, along with the bronze fittings and handles. Other features include a built-in vacuum system, two air conditioning systems such that the main home AC can be turned off to only cool the master wing in the evening, over-wide hallways, an alarm system and a fully enclosed yard landscaped with roses, fruit trees and grass. Art and book niches abound. The home enjoys spectacular natural light. The location is perfect, not just for privacy and views but also for the amenities of Oro Valley: Within a few minutes' drive or an easy bike ride are The Marketplace with restaurants, movies, many stores and services (great manicure spot! Also excellent urgent care office.) groceries, Walgreen's, UPS, and more. You are invited to make an appointment for a showing at your earliest convenience.
