Townhome for sale at Milagro CoHousing Community in Tucson, Arizona.

Asking Price - $415,000
We are offering to sell our beautiful adobe brick townhome 4 bedroom, two bathroom. We are the first owners of this home, constructed in 2003 when Milagro opened.
The building materials, consistently used throughout the community, include 16 inch natural adobe brick walls, scored rose concrete floors, thermal double paned windows, a hot water solar panel, and passive solar siting. Our home has energy efficient heating and cooling, ceiling fans, newer Frigidare Gallery stainless kitchen appliances and window treatments on all the windows. We have added several improvements, including flagstone patios in front of and behind out home, a large storage closet, adobe and custom wrought iron walls, and, an adobe/wooden ramada that currently houses a large spa but can be repurposed, if the new owner prefers to use this space differently. Finally, another nice feature we added is a screened porch off the master bedroom, that offers sweeping views of four distant mountain ranges.

Our home is surrounded by mature native trees and is very peaceful and quiet. These homes afford everyone lots of privacy, when desired. Yet, we are an intergenerational community of about 50 people, so there are many planned activities and opportunities for informal conversations. Children play safely here. Our community amenities include a common house with a large great room and commercial kitchen, a library, a children's play room, laundry room, and the shared intention to enjoy a green, ecological lifestyle. Our common house is used for meetings, educational forums, celebrations, watching movies, and other events. Outdoors, there is a salt water pool, play structures and spaces for children, organic gardens, walking trails, a labyrinth, a fire pit, and, a large grassy circle for soccer, outdoor movies and sky-watching.

Milagro is located on a mesa on the west side of the city of Tucson, on 43 acres of natural desert. Eight acres were developed, with 28 homes in a cluster design surrounding a 3700 square foot common house. A parking lot with individual storage areas is located adjacent to the homes, connected by curvy pathways that wind through the community - wide enough for electric carts and wagons. The remaining acreage is being maintained as a natural desert preserve. We live close to nature and enjoy the seasonal changes, hiking around our lands and the wildlife who occupy or visit here, too.

We are located 5 minutes drive to the closest shopping center and a 20 minutes drive to the University of Arizona. Some people here bike into town or hop the bus.
