Warm and welcoming, this single-owner gracious 5 BR/4BA home in Verde Ranch easily accommodates an active family and everyone's relatives and friends. With rich finishes and well-chosen decorator colors, it's comfortably elegant. The premium lot boasts stunning ''million dollar'' views of the Catalinas from Pusch Ridge to Mt. Lemmon and beyond. The entry to the home is unique and majestic, with handsome stone-embellished columns framing wide double front doors. A generously sized foyer opens to the living room with tall cathedral ceilings and the dining room overlooking the citrus orchard. The large open kitchen and great room enjoys those fabulous views and provides the perfect gathering spot, with a breakfast area that is simply where everyone who drops by tends to sit for a visit. A large granite-topped island can seat several more people and is, along with the other thick granite counters, a fabulous workspace where many Thanksgiving and holiday dinners have originated. Appliances are black and include a gas 5 burner stove, with large windows providing plenty of natural light. Lots of maple-shaded cabinetry provide excellent storage, with soft-close drawers and pull-outs for the lower cabinets. The great room is truly great, large and comfortable, with a gas fireplace framed by lovely ceramic tiling and an oversized granite-topped wet bar with a rich slate backdrop and room for a large wine fridge or even a glassed-in wall of wine, should one desire. This all overlooks the fabulous self-cleaning pool with a broad beach landing that is the perfect spot to spend a warm evening enjoying the sunset reflecting off the Catalinas. With multiple seating and dining areas, a contemporary fountain and a delightful garden, it's quite wonderful for entertaining and, with the indoors, has easily accommodated 120 guests for celebrations and forty for Thanksgiving dinner, no problem! There is storage under the stairs, a nearby powder room, and a laundry room with utility sink, room for a spare fridge and more maple-shaded cabinetry. A guest suite is adjacent, with en-suite full bath. Up the wide graceful stairs is a huge media/game room where the kids can gather, away from the adults and yet easy to hear and keep an eye on. The perfect teenager space. There are also 3 large bedrooms and a full bath with double sinks and a separate shower/toilet area, very well planned. The master bedroom, well separated, is generously sized and cozy, with wide windows that take in views of both the Catalinas and the Tortolita Mountains. Two well-sized closets are his and hers. The master bath has separate counters/sinks and a make-up area, an oval tub with more views, shower and separate WC. Rich slate and granite is featured through out the home. The carpeting is lush and clean. The home has been impeccably maintained by the original owners. As an example, a new Lennox AC was installed in April 2018 to cool the entire upstairs. The schools are excellent, with Wilson K-8 being not far away and several charter schools also nearby, along with excellent public school and STEM school options. The neighbors are a friendly mix of professionals, local entrepreneurs, and retirees, and the kids often play outside. Plenty of supermarkets and other stores nearby, along with walking paths and neighborhood parks. Medical care nearby also, with Oro Valley Hospital and an excellent Urgent Care center within five minutes. You are invited to make an appointment for your private showing of this welcoming and well-loved home at your earliest convenience.
