This sunny 1906 brick bungalow and former railroad conductor’s house adorns Tucson’s Iron Horse National Historic District. The charming detached home offers approximately 1,100 square feet of personal living space including two spacious guest bedrooms with one full shared bathroom, formal living/dining room, casual sun room, complete kitchen and laundry room. The home has modern heating and air-conditioning and there is lighted parking on the street directly in front of the house.
This home has been fully updated and features bright colors, warm wood floors and Saltillo tile dramatized by 10-foot ceilings, crown molding and chair rails. The bath is accented in historic fashion with period subway tile walls, ‘hex’ tile floors, a graceful pedestal sink and a gorgeous oversized cast-iron claw foot tub with overhead rain shower. The bright and spacious kitchen is fully-equipped with cookware and dinnerware and offers commercial-style Jenn-Air appliances, newly-installed period-style tall glass cabinets, Corian countertops and rolling granite island and wine rack.
An extending dining table with seating for six is complemented with oversized leather club chairs in the living/dining room. Soft casual seating areas in the house’s rear sun room provide a comfortable gathering area for television viewing, or just spending good times with family or friends. A full-size washer and dryer are located in the laundry room near the kitchen.
Beautiful native and Mediterranean landscape enhances the beauty of the home. The back yard offers a large covered patio with cascading flower and herb pots and outdoor seating among grapefruit, tangerine, orange, lime, mesquite and acacia trees.

Guests at our Iron Horse House will enjoy walking to the very same restaurants, shops and historic sites as guests at the Royal Elizabeth. The historic Tucson Trolley terminus is just one block from the Iron Horse House and takes riders directly to the University of Arizona Main Gate--which is also just one-half mile away by foot or bicycle.
Our neighborhood is in the middle of a renaissance and though, has remnants from it's industrial past, has evolved to be quite Bohemian in nature. It brings together a very diverse bunch of people for a very positive benefit. You will see everyone from the tattooed, pierced and punked to suits and ties; University students and professors, lots of cyclists, street performers, panhandlers and an ample supply of dogs and cats in the neighborhood. It is a friendly, respectful neighborhood that some guests have aptly referred to as the "West Village" or "Ashbury-Haight" of the Southwest.
The home provides popular amenities that Royal Elizabeth guests have come to expect including high-speed wireless internet, color printer, premium satellite TV service; CD/DVD/VHS/MP3 players and local and long-distance telephone calls--all at no additional charge. Weekly housekeeping services are also included. Note that breakfast at The Liz is not provided for Iron Horse House guests. You will, however, have the benefit of a fabulous kitchen, access to great local markets and a number of wonderful breakfast eateries.
Proud to be among the top 5 urban B&Bs in the nation for business travel as reported by USA Today
and distinguished as "Where to Stay" in Tucson by The Wall Street Journal.
