The space

Ocotillo House is a beautiful 1930s adobe that was once the family home of the famed artistic family, the DeGrazias. Ted DeGrazia was an acclaimed Arizona artist. This residence originally had two houses and one casita, as well as an area with a stage and seating for musical events and allegedly a pit for cockfighting.
The house is located in the historically designated Blenman-Elm neighborhood of Central Tucson. This recently renovated home has twelve-foot high wood beam ceilings and tile floors. There are two bedrooms each with adjoining bathrooms. The master bedroom is spacious with a walk-in closet, a queen bed with memory foam mattress, an office/work area, and a full bathroom with tub and shower.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you would need to prepare wonderful meals. An antique kitchen table expands to accomodate four people comfortably.

This is a cozy house in a quiet neighborhood close to the university. We were 5 minutes away from our favorite movie theater The Loft . We slept with the door open for night air(its locked by a screen ) and could not hear traffic , only birds. We cooked in most nights and the kitchen was equipped for everything we needed . Michael called to make sure I knew about a quilt show since I'm interested in textiles . He also hand delivered a bag I left behind to the airport. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
