On 25 acres at the edge of the Saguaro National Park, just a short jaunt away from downtown Tucson, sits the ultimate home for a true automotive enthusiast, and it isn’t just the location that makes it so.
6501 West Sweetwater Drive, priced at only $1.5 million, is surrounded by beautiful Sonoran Desert scenery, the Rincon Mountains and plenty of space for more than 24 cars. Three separate garages can be found around this home, two attached, one detached, each with its own distinct purpose.
The smallest of the three offers space for two cars, perfect for storing the daily drivers in an easily accessible location. The second garage is detached, but is much larger than the first – with full operational lifts already installed, this collector garage can fit 18 cars within.
The third garage is the hobby garage. Also attached to the home, its walls are lined with workbenches and storage cabinets that rival those of the finest mechanics’ shops. A car wash station and loading dock spans the space between the hobby and collector garages. Between the three garages, a massive total of 7,847 sq. ft. is covered, all dedicated to automotive purposes.
Now comes the home itself. Expansive, warm, inviting and absolutely stunning, the 5 bedroom home encompasses nearly 6,000 sq. ft., with each room more interesting and beautiful than the last. Connected to the hobby garage is the bar-media-game room, an area that includes a private theater, a full bar and room for a pool table.
The gourmet kitchen features custom alder wood counter tops and concrete counter tops, each in a warm, darker tone that plays off the rich colors of the Sonoran Desert. That theme is continued into the bedrooms, including the master suite, which feature massive his and hers closets and large bathroom. There’s even an area down the hall specifically for washing your dogs.
Guests will enjoy their own quarters, with full kitchen, bathroom, fireplace and loft, accessed by a beautiful spiraling iron staircase.
