  • Famous 1970s House Called ‘Big Hat in the Desert’ Lists at $2.6M (35 photos)

    Noted American architect Judith Chafee, the first woman from Arizona to be named a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), specialized in residential design combining modern touches with more traditional desert styles. Now, the most well known of the bunch, the 1975-built Ramada House in the Sonoran Desert, has come on the market for $2.6 million. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the roughly 3,800-square-foot residence is distinguished by the large wooden ramada it’s named after, which serves to both shade the house and generate a ventilating breeze – in his book “Modern Architecture Since 1900,” English critic William J.R. Curtis praised Chafee for sensing that the building needed a “big hat in the desert.” Full of striking windows framing views of the Catalina Mountains, city lights, and desert landscape, deserts, and city, the four-bedroom Tucson home is fully integrated into its surroundings. There are also two fireplaces, an updated kitchen, built-in bar and desks, as well as access to expansive patios and a large pool (thank goodness).

  • Autopsy reports found from 1929 Valentine's Day massacre
