Description

Hispano-Flemish and California Mission architecture, along with modernized upscale conveniences, create a coveted historical gem in the heart of Tucson's bustling and cultural downtown. The Cheyney House resides in the historic El Presidio Neighborhood, where mature trees canopy the sidewalks, historical mansions are abound, and one can stroll to numerous delectable restaurants and cafe's, trendy bars, theaters, museums, civic events, and the trolly. Meandering garden pathways, ornate metal work, terraced landscaping with unique palms and citrus trees, and a distinguished arcade entrance provide a welcoming entrance. Inside this nationally registered historic home, enjoy fine craftsmanship that must be personally experienced to appreciate the stately ambiance; A grand foyer and centralstaircase separates the two units, 12' ceilings, fine millwork, full casement cabinetry, 6" base moulding, arched windows, stain glass, extensive white and red oak flooring, numerous custom built-in's, and professionally selected timeless interior finishes. The main level (unit 1) great room was designed for entertaining with ample space for reading from the built-in library complete with a rolling ladder, conversation by the gas fireplace with a custom cherry and slate surround, and dining room flanked by bay windows overlooking the manicured yard. Kitchen features include solid green slate countertops, full casement cabinetry with under cabinet lighting and crown moulding, subway tile backsplash, a dedicated pantry, and walkout to a private covered deck. A full accompaniment of stainless appliances incudes an electric range/convection oven, and secondary microwave/convection oven. The primary bedroom on the main level includes a 4-pc en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower lined with travertine, dual vanity, private water closet, and marble inlay flooring. A built-in Murphy bed in the second bedroom allows for flex-use and home office considerations. Step down the interior grand stairs to the lower level (unit 2), also boasting architectural character with exposed volcanic rock walls, and a spacious great room lined with a series of period specific French doors overlooking the covered private patio and back yard. The primary bedroom on this level includes an ensuite bath with a free-standing soaking tub and elongated vanity. The kitchen includes solid soapstone counters, tumbled marble backsplash, stainless appliances, and a 5 burner gas range. Thoughtful built-in's maximize storage and also create an eat-in kitchen dining area. Additional modernization includes two on-demand tankless gas water heaters, two new HVAC systems, stackable washers & dryers on each level, and new exterior paint. This property is so tranquil among the lush vegetation and intimate sitting areas. Peaceful sounds of bird life, the breeze thru the mature trees, and the cascading water feature in the stately swimming pool invoke peaceful relaxation in solidarity, or create a memorable setting for entertaining. Consider the value in functionality of this property by being able to use it for many residential purposes; Investment potential as a duplex, large combined home, as guest quarters, or multigenerational living. Each level is fully sustainable with separate entrances, modern kitchens, large living areas, bedrooms w/ensuite baths, guest accommodations, laundry areas, and private patios. Unit 1 & 2 have separate property tax schedule numbers. The tax parcel numbers could be combined for a lower tax rate. One level could also be sold independent of the other. Unit 1 & 2 currently have parking for six vehicles; a 2-car carport accessible via an electric gate off the alley, and 4 street parking passes. The City of Tucson issues two for the property, and the owner has 2 additional passes valid until March 2025. This property has a small owner-managed HOA with 3 members to maintain the exterior of the buildings, common areas, landscaping, and pool. The main house being sold is unit 1 & 2, which comprises 2 out of 3 HOA members and 78% ownership of common area. Unit 3 is the guest house in the back corner of the lot, is owned by a private party, and is not for sale. When viewing this property, schedule plenty of time to view the numerous intimate details and one-of-a-kind features. It would also serve one well to do a walking tour of El Presidio to see the surrounding properties, neighborhood pocket park, grab a bite to eat at the legendary El Charro Cafe or at Cafe-a-la-Carte in the Tucson Museum of Art, visit the shops at Old Town Artisans, stroll to downtown, or trolly over to 4th Avenue or University of Arizona campus. El Presidio Historical District is Tucson's oldest neighborhood and is listed on the National Registrar of Historical Places. The Cheyney House was built in 1905 and designed by the architecture firm Holmes & Holmes for Annie Cheyney. Annie was the widow of George Cheyney, a mining chemist and early postmaster of Tucson. The property partially burned in the early 1980's, was fully restored in 2001 by Gerald & Emma Talen, and received the State of Arizona Heritage Preservation Honor Award from the state's preservation foundation in 2002. Pima County Assessor has given this property an effective construction year of 1996. Call for a private showing of this unforgettable Tucson masterpiece.
