Step inside the one of a kind 1902 ''Miller Mansion'' and 1902 ''Miller Carriage House'' and be transported back to a time of stately grandeur and luxury at the turn of the 20th century. This beautiful home and accompanying carriage house in the heart of Tucson's Armory Park neighborhood have been painstakingly restored to their original glory, with no detail left untouched. Several years of tedious renovation and updating have brought this gem into the 21st Century with all of today's modern conveniences, while staying true to the historic charm and character of the original Queen Anne Victorian Painted Lady style architecture. For true lovers of historic homes, THIS is where expectations are met and exceeded. WINNER of Tucson Association of Realtor's Home Tour! The main home features 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, and 3473 sqft of elegant living space. Original hardwood floors, original pocket doors, original wooden staircase, original inset china cabinet, stained glass windows and front door, 4 original 1902 chandeliers, hand-carved tiled fireplace, marble tiled fireplace, and gorgeous wooden banister are just a few of the historic details that have been restored to perfection and preserved here. On the front porch, you'll find an inviting swing and 2 nautical windows with hand-painted and preserved red, blue, and gold trim, with grandiose pillars, all nestled under the newly added 2nd story wrap-around balcony, with city and mountain views. Upon entering the fully restored original wood and stained-glass door is the Parlor, which sets the stage for what is to come, entailing the 1902 staircase (now lighted) with attached 1800's church bench to the left, with original stained-glass chandelier overhead, and with walk-way and another original chandelier and 11ft ceilings. The Formal Living Room and Formal Dining Room, to the right of the entry, showcase their own exquisite 1902 Fireplace with rich wooden mantels and irreplaceable tile work, each with new remote control ignition systems and glass doors, and fully operating pocket-doors for entertaining or privacy. Enter further into the newly completed Butler Pantry and Kitchen renovation and expansion, as this is what dreams are made of - with magnificent custom-built cabinets, beautiful hand-laid floor-to-ceiling tile backsplash, Taj Mahal Quartzite counters, Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher, island with 48" Wolf Range w/Double ovens, Sub-Zero 48" refrigerator/freezer, Wolf warming drawer and Wolf microwave convection oven. The adjacent Butler's pantry includes matching custom cabinetry, a wet bar and Sub-Zero beverage center. The main home has a large capacity tankless water heater and has been restored and remodeled to perfection. Now, walk upstairs (or take the lift elevator) to the 2nd floor Owner's suite, just completed, consisting of a sitting room with new Victorian style gas fireplace, new master walk-in closet with custom cabinetry, and newly added wet bar with Sub-Zero beverage center. The master suite bath is also breathtaking - with marble floors and walls, double-vanity, lighted make-up mirror, marble walk-in shower with frameless glass door, and beautiful claw foot soaking tub! This Sitting room could easily be converted back into additional bedroom at the new owner's choice, to give main home total of 4 bedrooms. Additional bedrooms and closets are generously sized and well-appointed. Upstairs bath matches Owner's Suite bath finishes and includes another claw foot soaking tub and double vanity with another original chandelier. Main home is ADA compliant with accessible 1st floor bath with Laundry, entry ramps, wide doorways, a wheelchair ramp and an elevator/wheelchair lift to take you to the 2nd story. Next, enter the Historic Carriage House, for your loved ones to stay (or a business studio, a rental property, etc.), which includes 1 bed & 2 baths in 1330 sqft of elegance. Fully remodeled kitchen featuring granite countertops, new gas range and hood, new wood cabinets, marble flooring, and all new appliances including dishwasher. This home has gleaming wood floors (2nd story floors are 1902 original), rolling security shutters, Pella windows, tankless water heater, and separate newly added laundry-room with custom cabinets. The Bedroom loft on the 2nd floor includes enormous air-conditioned walk-in closet that could also be a small room. Both bathrooms feature marble floors and walls, marble walk-in showers, luxury cabinets, Toto toilets, and the upstairs bath has a new Jacuzzi tub, double sinks and walk in shower. Outside, in this secure property, you'll find the beautifully landscaped yard area with towering palm trees (2 a gift from the Queen of Hawaii in 1902), peaceful fountain, seating areas, pavers, newly laid sod and planters with irrigation, low voltage lighting, and coral rock accents. There is parking space for 6-10 cars inside of the gated courtyard, with access from Arizona Ave through an electric sliding gate. The front gate also has a security system and both homes are covered by security cameras. Both homes have been updated to today's modern standards in functionality, safety, and systems, including new HVAC units, tankless water heating systems, new electrical wiring, new plumbing, new paint, new roofs, new R-19 insulation blown into both attics, new LED lighting, App monitored Generac generator capable of powering both units in a power outage, owned security system, whole home water purification system (main house), App monitored security cameras, fully gated premises, prewired with wifi for today's lifestyle, and fully connected. This magnificent home is minutes from downtown and several hospitals and offers everything a city dweller could ask for and is truly the most well-preserved historic home of its kind in Tucson or the surrounding area, with museum-quality renovation/restoration, thoughtfully executed, and perfectly refined. With flexible zoning, both commercial and residential, possibilities for this stately home are endless. Investors should look at the short-term or executive rental potentials. Would also make an Instagram and social media hotspot as a bed-and-breakfast property. Could serve as a doctorate program housing unit. Perhaps a business in the main home, with the owner living in the carriage house. And of course, this estate would make an amazing legacy property for any family looking for a home and/or to expand their real estate portfolio. Updates and upgrades are far too many to cover here. Please see floor plan and a full list of the improvements and restoration work completed, under the Documents tab.
