Unique compound set up for rent starting about June 15 but we can be flexible. The property consists of three buildings on about a half-acre with swimming pool, large garden, and citrus/nut/fruit trees. The main house is a 1924 farmhouse about 1100 square feet - home to two architects for the last ten years so lots of tinkering going on! It has a master bedroom with large closet and private updated contemporary ¾ bath, a second bedroom, second updated contemporary full bath with deep soaking tub, and a third room (previously enclosed covered patio) that can be used as a third bedroom, family room, or office. The kitchen is done “restaurant style” with stainless steel tables for counters and a fantastically deep restaurant sink that can double as an infant bath (grin). It has a courtyard for outdoor living and a traditional front porch with great neighbors who will join you for wine or offer to pet sit. The second house on the property (next door) is a 1 bedroom 1.5 bath fully remodeled open and airy contemporary workspace that we have been using as our office. It would also make a great artists studio, or mother-in-law/guest house and it has street access if you want to use it with its own separate entry. The third building between the two houses, is a huge garage that fits 2 big cars plus extra space for storage plus an additional car sized bay for workshop that has a roll up glass door to the backyard for light and view. The yard is walled for privacy and is huge with lots of room for dogs or kids or just to have space. The swimming pool has a wading shelf great for kids or for sitting in a lounge chair and has a motorized pool cover to protect the kids or keep the leaves out. We have removed part of the wall between the two houses but saved the block so it could be put back up if the homes were to be lived in separately. What makes this property unique is that it could be a great live/work or live adjacent set up for someone. The house is near the corner of 32nd Street and Thomas. It is walking distance to starbucks, grocery, and a couple of good restaurants (Mexican, Greek, Italian, Long Wongs). It is about 2 miles north of the 32nd/Washington light rail stop for connection to downtown or ASU. Close to both highway 51 and 202. It is about 3 miles south of the trail head at 32nd and Lincoln for easy access to daily hiking if you are into that sort of thing. We will eventually sell but with the market soft, it is a rental for now. Both houses and garage are renting for $2150/month total (or best offer). Contact: 602-418-8134 or 602-293-7414.
never do something routine if you can do something truly special
