Jefferson Park Classic

1331 E Waverly, Tucson, AZ 85719

Project Description

Architectural Revival

This well-preserved historic property was a labor of love for Southwest Urban. Acquired from the estate of the original owners’, this Jefferson Park bungalow exudes the character and charm of a dignified residence. The design restoration of this home blended the original elements with a modern urban sophistication that is warm and soothing.

Located on an prominent corner parcel on the northwest corner of Waverly and Highland.  The land measure is 11,100 SF (74′ x 150″) of rejuvenated property, featuring an entry courtyard, adobe walled back area, patio, outdoor fireplace, off-street parking, and privacy.  The entire property is manicured to perfection!

The 2,195 SF (assessor) of living area is portioned between a 2 bedroom / 1 bathroom main residence, and 1 bedroom / 1 bath guest house. The main house features formal living areas, high ceilings, dual-hung windows, vintage gas fireplace, vestibule, sun room, and finished basement.  The guest cottage has multiple and flexible uses as income property, guest facilities, office, artist studio, hobby area, yoga / gym, storage, and residence.

The original wood floors are refinished, colonial talavera tile in the vestibule was retained, luxurious baroque carrera marble tile was added to the bathroom, kitchen and sun room are energized with a playful vintage checkerboard tile, and Mexican tile gives the guest house a pop!  Paint colors are a historic palette carefully chosen to reflect the classic formality of the residence.

Another amazing room is the spacious kitchen with quartz counter surfaces, gas slide-in cafe convection range, french-door refrigerator, butcher-block, vintage cabinets/hardware, and tons of storage. Sun-room connects to the kitchen to overlook backyard and has an awesome mountain view.  Clean functional basement is a cool industrial space with re-purposed boiler and the original owner’s workstation, also has crawl space access to underneath home.

The guest house is a Mexican industrial modern casita with new mini-split HVAC cooling and heating system.  Historic design offers a cleaned and pressed living area with a sharp bathroom, butcher-block counter with vessel sink, extra room with organizer, 2 closets.
