About the Property
Secluded 2 bedroom, 2 bath with 360 degree rural mountain views and high desert
PROPERTY & AREA INFORMATION
Experience 360 degrees of incredible mountain views in this authentic adobe home on 10 acres of natural high desert.
Unbelievable peace, quiet and tranquility await. In early evening, you will hear the yap of the coyote. In early morning, you will see Jack Rabbits and Cottontail hop across the front yard. Road Runners, Hawks and even White Owls cam be observed on or near the property. If you look closely under the Mesquite, you will see the elusive and, in some areas, endangered Horned Toad.
In this big sky country, you are guaranteed to see falling stars and, on some evenings, the Mikey Way.
There are stunning desert sunsets and sun rises in red, blues and pinks, blues and grays. In the morning, you can observe the moon dip behind the mountains.
You can visit the breathtaking Chiricahua National Monument, Kartchner Caverns, the wild west re-creations in famed Tombstone, Old Bisbee - the artist haven and old copper mining town, Cochise Stronghold of famed Apache Chief Cochise , Amerind Museum, Bowie National Historic Site, Ft Graham Observatory and more. But please plan to spend some time in the Historic Willcox with its famed cowboy museums.
The Earth House, with its proximity to so many area sites, is the perfect place to stay for those who enjoy birding, antiquing, archaeology, rock hounding, hiking, our Native American and cowboy history or just serenity.
Willcox has a famous cowboy history with museums and hosts wine tasting in several locations in town. If, during your visit, you desire the culture that only a big city can afford, Tucson is just a short drive down I-10.
The Earth House will provide you a unique vacation experience as the home itself is a creative work of art.
Note: This vacation home is located in a rural community and does not come with the many amenities of larger cities. It has both the charm and the downside of a rural environment. Therefore, being a nature lover is a must to enjoy your stay.

This small 'Old West' town is full of history with local museums and old buildings. It was the home to the Earp's of famed Wyatt Earp as well as Rex Allen, the 'singing cowboy'. Several local wineries offer wine tastings including the Coronado Vineyards. Within driving distance is Chiricahua National Monument, Cochise Stronghold, Tombstone, Old Bisbee (Named America's #1 Best American Small Historic Town), Patagonia Lake, Kirchner Caverns, Amerind Museum in the Dragoon Mountains and Ft Graham Observatory. There are fun events throughout the year in Willcox and in surrounding Cochise County, such as birding, antiquing, Old West shoot-out re-enactments, rodeos, antique car shows, rock climbing, museums and other annual festivals such as the Rex Allen Festival, Art Festival, Willcox Wine Tasting Festival and "Wings over Willcox". Recommended activities are in my photo lineup. But the best thing about your stay will be the quiet, peaceful environment surrounding The Earth House; the beautiful sun rises and sun sets over the surrounding mountains, big sky at night, the evening yap of the coyote, rabbits hopping across the property and birds galore.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I grew up in North Florida and obtained my BA & MBA from Troy State University. My career took me to Charleston, SC and then to the Memphis.TN area. Following retirement, I returned to my Gulf Breeze, FL home. I have two dogs, "Missy" a mixed breed, and "Dingo", a true Dingo. They love chasing the desert rabbits - truly an exercise in futility. It took five years to complete construction of The Earth House. It is a true, vs fake or "burnt", adobe house. Each 12"x 14" x 4" adobe block that went into the making of this home was made on site with desert sand and stabilizing concrete. Visiting The Earth House is my time to get away from the hustle and bustle of city living, to visit my desert friends and to enjoy the outstanding nature, sunrises and sunsets.
Why the Owner Chose Willcox, AZ, USA:
This craftsman's beauty cannot not be found in a typical American home. It will make your stay a unique experience.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is enchanting with its tongue and groove ceiling, large vigas and adobe construction. It is in a quiet, remote, peaceful setting yet close enough to see the big city lights of Tucson and/or to tour the western sites.
