Design of Miramonte Barrio Viejo townhomes
There are 3 floor plans to choose from. They range in size from 1,706 to 2,154 square feet. Each home has 2-stories with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a 1-car garage, and an enclosed courtyard. All units feature an open kitchen adjacent to the great room. The master bedroom suite is on the ground floor in all 3 plans.
Designed to blend with the historic architecture in Barrio Viejo
The Miramonte Barrio Viejo townhomes have been designed to blend with the historic Sonoran row house and territorial style architecture of the Barrio Viejo area. The garages face inward, allowing for the homes to be closer to the lot line, similar to traditional Sonoran row house architecture. The interior of the neighborhood features a private road constructed of pavers to access the garage spaces.
Lanning Architecture, a Tucson-based architecture firm, designed the project. Because the land is within the Barrio Historico Historic Zone, the design process took significantly longer to get the needed approval from the historic zone. The original plan of 15 units, designed by another local company, EXA Architects, called for 15 units but, ultimately was not approved.
Location of Miramonte Barrio Viejo
Barrio Viejo is one of the most walkable areas of Tucson. It’s located a block south of the Tucson Convention Center in Downtown Tucson, within easy walking distance to downtown businesses, nightlife, and the Tucson Streetcar. It’s also close to The Loop multi-use path that circles the city. And it’s conveniently located near both I-10 and I-19, for those trips out of town. Take a look at the interactive map below.
