About Randolph House in Midtown Tucson
Randolph House (c. 1949) is one of my favorite communities in Tucson. This small 30-unit condo complex in midtown Tucson is just so charming. What contributes to the charm of Randolph House is a combination of red brick exteriors with cedar shake siding, wood balconies, steel casement windows set among a beautiful, lush landscape.
The property includes several 2-story buildings along with single-story buildings. The 2 story buildings have units on the ground floor and on the second floor. Once inside, every property is one level.
The homes range in size from about 700 square feet for 1 bedroom units up to 1130 square feet for 2 bedroom units. A few of the condos have fireplaces. Each has a single carport for parking.

Historic Status Can Save Money on Property Taxes
Because Randolph House is located within the San Clemente Historic District, owner occupied homes can qualify for reduced property tax rates.
As of this writing in 2021, the HOA covers water, sewer, and trash collection fees. It also covers roof maintenance, exterior building maintenance, and common area maintenance. Rentals require a 30-day minimum lease. There’s a limit of 1 dog and 2 vehicles per residence. (NOTE: Please check current HOA documents for the most updated info, as HOA rules may change anytime.)
Location of Randolph House
Randolph House is located adjacent to Reid Park and Randolph Golf Course on Alvernon Way and Timrod Street. Living next to Reid Park allows for a lot of recreation opportunities including golf, tennis, pickleball, fitness and art classes.
Randolph House is also near a DoubleTree Hotel, a convenient place for out-of-town guests to stay.
Shopping and restaurants are convenient with many to choose from at the nearby El Con area or Broadway Village.
History of Randolph House Condos
Randolph House was originally called Country Club Plaza Apartments and were rental apartments. In 1961 the property was purchased by Louis Eisen and Associates. Louis Eisen, an attorney and real estate developer who relocated to Tucson from New York, changed the name of the apartments to Randolph House in 1961. In 1974 the property was converted to condominiums and offered for sale starting at $18,400.
What I Love about Randolph House:
- Exteriors of the homes are so charming!
- The grounds are lush with mature olive trees, crepe myrtles, citrus trees, and green grass.
- Condo life is low maintenance. The HOA takes care of the exterior and the landscaping.
- Next to Reid Park. Walk to Music Under the Stars, a University of Arizona Baseball game, and other events.
- Close to shopping and services.
