icehouse6 You'll love it because: It's a fab living option if you want urban, which downtown Tucson is very much becoming. And if you ever dreamed of living in a chic and private, low-maintenance, full-amenities complex close to downtown, this is your first and best option.

When I was  a kid I always dreamed of being among artists and the cosmopolitan by moving to New York City and living in a big, spacious, industrial loft converted to my avant-garde, minimal living space.  But then I got there, and those places were drafty, cold, dirty, and expensive. Or in a bad part of Brooklyn.  Or you had to share it with seven other starving artists.

This is not that kind of loft. These are not incomplete, live/work artist-style lofts. This conversion is a well-planned, rare sighting in Tucson.

icehouse4 Here comes the but: While it's "lofty" and spacious for a one bedroom, it's best suited for a bachelor pad. There's not much privacy, except for in the gorgeous custom master bathroom, designed by Tucson-based Baker + Hesseldenz.
