This magnificent Santa Fe Contemporary occupies the highest lot in the privately gated community of Redington Ranch, bordering the national forest.

At the top of a long steep driveway is a home with what seems like a view of the world. In reality, of course, it is a view of Tucson. And what a view it is. From the wraparound terrace and the floor to ceiling windows throughout the home one can see the Tucson Valley and the mountain ranges edging Tucson; the Catalinas, Rincons, Santa Ritas, and Tucsons.

The home was designed to bring the outside in and it does just that. The lush vegetation, mostly indigenous, was supplemented by the owner to bring the desert-loving plants close to the home.

Outdoor living space includes wraparound patios finished with saltillo tile, an upper level patio with natural stone beehive fireplace and barbecue and flagstone desert sidewalks encircle the entire property.

Rather than blasting the rock on top of the hill flat, this home was designed around the solid rock beneath, creating various levels inside. The home seems to stair-step from the formal living room off the entrance up to the kitchen, breakfast nook and formal dining room, up again to the family room and one bedroom/office, then down to the master bedroom and the second bedroom suite, and down again to the private guest quarters. The variety of inside levels is only a few steps, but it creates a visual effect of separation in what is a fairly open floor plan.

Built-ins throughout the home provide space for audiovisual equipment, and the many lighted niches provide an area to display art work and collections.

Natural wood tones in the wood ceilings with viga supports, the cedar doors and the maple cabinetry provide a warm comfortable element. Most of the master bedroom furniture is built-in, including the bed, bedside tables and entertainment center.

The master bath features a two person garden tub with spectacular views from windows on three sides, a separate two person shower, lavatory and plenty of space around the double sinks.

The guest quarters is self contained and private. An entrance off the terrace provides privacy for screened in porch area between the guest quarters and the main home provides a space for many activities. This home pays homage to nature not only by bringing the outside in through the enormous windows throughout, but with a private patio area. Barely visible from the house, this patio can be reached from either of the two separate flagstone stairs that lead to it from the home. It is quite a climb to the top, but the view and ambience of this private retreat are well worth the hike.

Here, it is as if the inside was brought outside. Electrical outlets located in the stone pony wall, and outside fireplace and built-in barbecue provide all the inside comforts in an outside setting.

This is a home for the outdoor enthusiasts, whether they enjoy nature from the outside or the inside.

If you own horses Redington Ranch offers one of the nicest community horse stables and corral areas. There is also a swimming pool, clubhouse for informal parties, lighted tennis court, finishing pond and access to great hiking and horseback riding. A resident caretaker manages the common area and facilities for Redington Ranch.
