Property description

This charming one level bungalow is conveniently located 1 mile from the town of Carefree yet sits in a secluded desert setting with a beautiful view of Black Mountain and it's breathtaking sunsets from the back veranda. This is a private residence and is not in a gated community. The home has recently been completely remodeled and includes a fully stocked chefs kitchen with Dacor range/oven and Stainless appliances. The kitchen looks out into an open dining room and living area which is divided into 2 separate sitting areas. One for TV viewing (Direct TV is included) and the other for reading and enjoying a crackling fire in the ledge rock fireplace. The master bedroom and bath is located on one end of the main living area and the guest bedroom and adjoining bath is on the opposite side. Morning coffee, newspaper, and breakfast are enjoyed on the front patio and evening cocktails are savored on the back veranda overlooking the peaceful desert landscape. Furnishings are cozy and comfortable and the new mattresses feature high end linens and down pillows unless otherwise requested. There is a spacious 2 car garage. There is no pool on the property but our guests are able to use the pool and workout facility at the Carefree Resort which is located a block away for a nominal monthly fee. The total square footage of the home is 2700 sf. If you are seeking a comfortable desert getaway near the charming town of Carefree with convenient access to all the area has to offer, then this is the place for you!
