Carefree house description

This private house is conveniently located in Carefree, AZ, surrounded by 20 acres of land preserve. Totally private! This is a home, not a villa or condo. Easy walking to shopping, dining and entertainment. Just minuets from historic downtown Cave Creek and the Boulders Resort. The town of Carefree is located due north of Scottsdale.
This home is bright and airy and in great condition. It is comfortable and 'user friendly', the privacy amazing. My home is very easy to maintain. Neighbors call it the HAPPY HOUSE. Viewed from the private back patio, Javalina, quail, coyote, bob cats, desert fox, road runners, Jack rabbits and mule deer are seen regularly at our natural watering hole or frolicking in Galloway wash. There is a 360 degrees of Mountain views and the very best Arizona sunsets. The home is located in the heart of Carefree, but one would never know it.
The house is situated on 2+ acres with a privacy wall that surrounds the pool and outdoor living area that are enjoyed day or night. I am very proud of my home and keep it clean, organized and personal.
There is a Living room / dining room / TV room and workable, well equipped kitchen. Master bedroom has king sized bed, master bath and a private bedroom Patio. A comfortable King bed in the guest room can be separated into twin beds.
Enjoy romantic, starry Arizona nights from the pool, patio or around the outside bee hive fireplace. Great outside dining area. Well landscaped, most enjoyable. Wonderful for entertaining. Wonderful for relaxing. Wonderful for private sunbathing.
Enjoy horseback riding, spring baseball training, golf, hiking, are all here. We are located in the north end of the Valley of the Sun, anything that Phoenix or Scottsdale has to offer is no further than an hour away or less. Sedona Az. is a good hour north. Tonto National Forest, Bartlett Lake 15-30 minutes east. A greatl location for city access and real desert living and exploring. Great hikes to indian ruins and parks (Spur Cross, Tonto National Park) are close by. Within walking distance is the post office, grocery store, farmers market, very fine dining, cowboy dining, wine bars, shops and local live music.

Just a Gem! You won't go wrong!

              The Cave Creek, Carefree area is a eclectic western area that has fine dinning and funky western bars. Lots of hiking, biking and riding trails. Golf is within minutes. Fishing, boating a short, beautiful drive away. Shopping around the conner. Art festivals on most weekends. Easy day trips to Arizona's best locations. Thirty minutes to spring training or Barrett car auction. Near perfect sunny weather all year long. Cave Creek was established in the early 1860's. It is part of the Military trail and has been home to Native Americans for centuries. Gold was discovered and people came to prosper. Then ranching and now an eclectic mix of everything. Movie stars on the hills, cowboys at the bars,
