Fort Davis house description

Casa Mano Prieto, a 1350 square foot home, is nestled beneath the Puertacitas and Mano Prieto Mountains with long range views of Blue Mountain and Mount Livermore.

The enchanting setting is perfect for any getaway plans - exploring, birding, hiking or just watching the jackrabbits and deer. Near by are the McDonald Observatory, Davis Mountains State Park, Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center and Fort Davis National Historic Site. Views outside all windows display the vastness and beauty of West Texas. The lighting changes the views all day long. Night brings the darkest, brightest, starry skies for the star gazer in you. It is a perfect spot to set up your own telescope.

                          About the owner: The amazing beauty and peacefulness brought Tom and Tex Harrison to this particular spot in West Texas from western North Carolina. They lived in this casa while they built their home and observatory.

                          Why the Owner Chose Fort Davis:
                          After their home was finished, they decided to share this beautiful spot with others and opened Casa Mano Prieto in January 2010.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Every day offers different looks of the desert. It is ever changing and always beautiful.
