Welcome to Marigold Ranch, a one-of-a-kind property perfectly resting in theexclusive Tanque Verde Valley.As you approach this home, your eyes are delighted by the true essence of thisSouthern Arizona masterpiece. As Shakespeare is to literature, this home is toluxury in every aspect. Fashioned after historic, sprawling Texas ranches,Marigold features a wrap-around porch that brings the desert to your toes.This home was built with solid block construction walls featuring E-Crete, anenergy-efficient aerated concrete system. The resulting thick exterior walls arefinished with stucco and a natural pigment lime wash, giving a sunny golden-hueto the exterior. A pitched standing-seam steel roof reminiscent of old ranchbuildings sheds seasonal rains into planting areas around Clerestory windows near the entrance bring more daylight into the interior, along with perimeter upper transom windows and three sets of French doors on the north side. Double-hung windows framed by sage green shutters lend a classic, timeless look to the exterior. The residence was carefully sited on the three-and-a-half-acre property to avoid disturbing the numerous saguaros and to best-capture the mountain views to the north and east. The grounds are meticulously xeriscaped with unique plantings, relics and sculptures. Custom Douglas fir double doors greet you as you enter Marigold Ranch and the spectacular floor-to-ceiling double-sided fireplace commands immediate attention. Framed by breathtaking views of the Santa Catalina mountains, this fireplace's style, scale, and charm was inspired by the one in the reading library at the Arizona Inn, a 1930s Spanish Colonial Revival hotel near downtown Tucson. Another prominent feature of the living room area is the set of vintage wooden doors reclaimed from the Tucson Icehouse (circa 1920) that contains the recessed entertainment system. These beautiful features honor our local history with authenticity and anchor the dwelling in Tucson's past. The craftsmanship of this unique property is showcased through the exposed rough-hewn ceilings and structural beams, which are connected by hand-forged steel bracketry, barrio-style walls, and the solid Montana white pine flooring. The architectural design and flow of the home capture a sense of true peace and tranquility. The walls feature white hand-troweled diamond plaster, keeping the interior fresh and light. The home has four natural gas fireplaces, creating a wonderfully warm, inviting ambiance - adding comfort to our desert winters. In September 2022, three new HVAC units were installed to keep the house comfortable all year round. The open kitchen features a tile-clad backsplash with a custom cement range hood, white Calcutta marble across all surfaces - including a Douglas fir island, side pantry, and breakfast nook highlighted with white cabinetry throughout. From the kitchen, one can take their favorite book and a warm beverage to the screened-in porch area to enjoy the morning sunrise. A wing containing a study and the primary suite angles off one side of the great room, creating a protected courtyard for the north-facing pool terrace. On the opposite side of the great room, another wing includes two guest suites with access to nature's outdoor garden. Inside and out, this fully furnished and decorated home is filled with many special touches. A mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings and accessories celebrate the colors of the desert and emphasize comfort. The home has two deep Ralph Lauren Home sofas, covered in a hay-colored Manuel Canvas fabric, matching alder-wood low table and sofa bookcase built by local furniture maker Marc Perry, and duck cloth slipcovered armchairs to anchor the living area. The pale desert colors of the furnishings and fabrics keep the emphasis on the art. Decorative arts collections, including an assortment of Navajo rugs, antique Indian baskets and pottery, as well as western paintings by California artist Dennis Ziemienski, glasswork by Tom Philibund, and many others, adorn the long hallways, shelves, and surfaces between the great room and the wings to the east and west. The thoughtful planning, tasteful eclectic décor, and light-filled layout make this an extremely livable home. Welcome home to Marigold Ranch.
