Notre maison

Our home was featured in the At Home Arizona Daily Star publication. We live in a park-like setting surrounded by over 40 trees with the beauty and shade they provide. Inside, the home is charming and comfortable, featuring an eclectic collection of furniture, antiques and art. The home has a California King bed, a Queen bed, a bunk bed that sleeps 3 (two on the bottom and one on the top) and a single bed. The master bath features an atrium and jetted tub. The kitchen has upgraded stainless appliances and in a impulsive fit of creativity, I turned the counter tops into a mosaic tile quilt of sorts. The home is located in an exceptionally quiet semi-rural subdivision a mere 11 miles from downtown Tucson. There is little or no through traffic. It has a fully functional fireplace for chilly winter evenings and you may help yourself to the mesquite wood that goes with it. Or, light up the outside patio chimenea and toast some marshmellows. We live in what is referred to locally as a "Mesquite Bosque." Translated that means "small forest" in Spanish. If you are interested in birds, we are home to a huge variety of our winged friends including, hummingbirds, hawks, falcons, a roadrunner family, quails, mourning doves, Arizona cardinals, finches and the list goes on. The home is also efficiently air conditioned if and when needed.

  1. My wife and I are retired educators. We have five degrees in education between us with the score being three to two in her favor! Game over. I am now an assemblage artist and will make something out of anything that isn't nailed down and some that is. Some of my work is displayed in the home. We have raised six children, three of whom live nearby. The home currently serves as a haven for our many grandchildren. Here's some of what At Home said about our house: "The Pirtles' lush backyard, which is a favorite playdate venue, has a lighted basketball court, trampoline, 75' zip line, garden and two treehouses." Whether you come as a couple or as a family, we think you will be more than satisfied with your visit. Klaire and I are environmentalists and are very conscious and considerate of others and their property. We love sharing our Sonoran sunshine with our exchange neighbors regardless of the time of year. Give us a shout!





AARP's The Magazine ranks Tucson "the very best place to live the simple life." Our desert dwelling is on 3/4 of an acre and is bordered by two creeks which are dry much of the year and serve year-round as wildlife corridors. The Sonoran Desert is the Queen of all deserts in that it receives 10-12 inches of rain (biseasonally) a year. AARP The Magazine: "...maybe some of what is mesmerizing is the beautiful wilderness that rings the city, including about 1.8 million acres of the Coronado National Forest with its 12 mountain ranges." The culture in Tucson is rich and diverse. There is almost no limit to one's pursuit of entertainment or access to outdoor activity. Magnificient Sabino Canyon with its stately Sahuaros and year-round running water is but four miles from our front door. Mount Lemmon, at over 8 thousand feet, is a scenic sixty minute drive. The world famous Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is nearby as well. Founded in the late 1700's, Mission San Xavier del Bac is a historic treasure. Take a short drive to Mexico if you wish, cruise over to Tombstone,check out the University of Arizona or the downtown art scene. We are sure you will enjoy the visit. You will also love becoming familiar with the flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert. Give yourself a sun break and come visit. October through April of each year the Sonoran Desert is very, very hard to beat in terms of weather. Does 70 degrees daytime temperature tempt you? We hope so.
