Property description

Modern house in center of Historical landmark town. Living room has high ceiling and real fireplace. Beautiful patio accessed from living room through 12' opening bi-fold doors.The two bedrooms have French doors opening to the patio so when everything is open, outside and inside seem to merge. The view from the patio is towards downtown and looks directly at the mountains, particularly the iconic 'B' mountain which is straight ahead. Downtown is a 5min walk, max. There are about 12 gentle wide steps to the property.
The house is built of Rastra and the walls are 11' thick which offers good insulation; AC in one bedroom only. Each bedroom has its own bathroom close by.

The town has good restaurants and bars in short walking distance from house, about 200 yards, 5 min walk. If you look at map given on this website the house placement is wrong, it is much closer to center than is shown.
Bars often have weekend live music.
The area (Cochise county) is noted for birding.
Bisbee is an artist colony with multiple galleries and antique shops.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am a medical research scientist originally from UK and live primarily in Berkeley California.

Why the Owner Chose Bisbee:
I've had vacation homes in this town for 30 years and love it because of it history, weather and physical beauty. The town is nestled in a valley of the Mule mountains. It's a liberal oasis in a generally conservative area I wanted to design and build a new home and now its completed.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Biking, hiking, birding. Hanging out in local restaurants and bars. Enjoy the artist galleries. Bisbee is the friendliest of towns with active social scene.
