Patagonia house description

Popular with Birdwatchers, this comfortable, spacious, rammed-earth home in peaceful Southern Arizona is just a few miles north of the Village of Elgin, near Patagonia and Sonoita. This home is on five acres at a charming 'end-of-the-road' location. You'll find it romantic and unique if you wish to stay 'home' to relax & rejuvenate, as well as being a wonderful base from which to explore this beautiful & diverse part of Arizona.

The home has lots of comfortable nooks to relax in. The private walled yard is a great place to soak up the ample Arizona sunshine. You may never want to leave the property, as the views of the Whetstones to the East, wilderness of the Empire Cienega to the north & Biscuit Mountain to the south are magnificent. The night skies are alive with stars - probably more than you have seen in years.

A short drive will take you to the world-famous bird-watching areas of Ramsey Canyon or the Patagonia Bird Sanctuary, as well as historic Tombstone, Bisbee & Benson. Parker Canyon & Patagonia Lakes are about 45 minutes & 30 minutes away, respectively. Elgin Wine country is only five miles from the home.

There's something for everyone to enjoy here. The home will give you a true southwestern experience & is an exceptional property.

(Please note...there is about 1/4 mile of dirt road to cross as you approach the property, but all types of vehicles have used it, including low-profile sports cars, with no problem.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1983

                      About the owner: I have owned this home since it was built in the early 1980's and it is very dear to my heart. It was built with energy efficiency in mind & to take advantage of the southern exposure for light & heating. The thick rammed-earth walls (like adobe, but compacted in place) make it very comfortable in all seasons with a wonderful ambiance which I love to share with my many happy guests. Renting the home as a vacation rental is a great way to let others experience it's wonderful qualities. My two sons grew up in the home & it proved to be a very creative & interesting environment for them and continues to be so for the children of our guests. It is truly a special property in a location that is quiet & beautiful, but not far from the many activities the Southeastern Arizona area has to offer. If you stay here don't forget to bring your pets as well since they will have a great time too.

                      Why the Owner Chose Patagonia:
                      This location is wonderful since it is only 2 miles from Highway 82. Visiting all the sites this unique part of the world has to offer is so convenient from here. Restaurants are plentiful and easy to drive to and from if you don't want to cook in the spacious kitchen. I was introduced to this area by my mother and father who discovered it after searching all over Arizona. They were avid fishermen so the location being near Patagonia Lake and Parker Canyon Lake was perfect for them for day fishing and boating trips.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This home really lets the creative juices flow with it's great energy & is a favorite for artists & musicians. Hiking opportunities abound on the Empire Cienega Ranch to the north where you are sure to spot some unique wildlife & may even luck into finding an arrowhead or worked stone. Being within 30 minutes of Sierra Vista allows easy access to the large chain grocery stores if you like to prepare your own meals, but at the edge of wilderness when returning to the property. It really is the best of both worlds here.
