luna rica for sale

photo by Emma Graham

Luna Rica has been fully renovated. Unfortunately, I didn't get much of a chance to document the process, as every day I would come home from work and something new would have been done. Michael works hard, starting at 4:30 or 5:00 a.m. and working till about 6:00 p.m. I love coming home and finding some new surprise.

We put the house on the market last weekend and today will be the first open house. My friend Emma came over yesterday with her SLR camera and spent three hours photographing the house. She has a keen eye for detail and captured the house fabulously. I only wish we had had a few clouds in the sky to soften the light for her. She took over 400 photos which I will sort through and post soon.

In the meantime, here are some photos I took last weekend with my own little compact camera.

Hey - where did the picture go?

I think you need to send me ALL the switch plates. Actually, I think I should count up my switch plates and you can make me some for my house.

I am also writing "5 million dollars, the rest to charity" on a $1 bill I am using to buy a lottery ticket, and THEN we are paying your house off, because I can not stand the suspense ANY MORE!

Is your house still for sale? Villa Luna Rica is just my style!!

Monica said...

Yes it is. She is still looking for that special person who can appreciate her uniqueness. Maybe that's you!

You can take a look or get more info from the Realtor, Kristine at The Pepper Group Real Estate Firm in Tucson. You can email her at:

You can also email any questions you may have to us. We have moved to California and we would like see it go to someone who appreciates curves! The price has been reduced from $685,000 all the way down to $499,000 as of last week.

The best place to email us is at my husband's personal email address:

Let us know if you have any questions the Realtor can't answer...

I love your writings on your blogs. Your spirit moves me and my heart aches that Villa Luna Rica is sitting there empty in the beautiful Tucson desert. My partner Duane and I fell in love with your house the moment we saw it. I believe with all my heart, that it calls to us and is waiting for us to come and visit.
