The workshop is composed of a 441sf studio / den with AC & a 210 sf studio w/ heat & AC.Since 2014 the owners have lovingly updated the property inside and out with the goal of restoring a neighborhood treasure. Property is located in the historic Campus Farm neighborhood where the UA's agriculture station, Pima County Cooperative Extension, and Tucson Village Farm are situated.
