This is an owner-designed home and guest cottage.
The guest cottage and the main house are rented together on a long-term basis - not less than 30 days.
Unique, tasteful, relaxed, custom-finished, filled with art, antiques, and state-of the-art electronics.
It is surrounded by forest and boulders, privacy and quiet, yet 2.5 easy miles to the courthouse square, the heart of town. Hiking trails lead from cottage;
hike to major landmark Thumb Butte nearby.
Genuine elegance embedded in Nature.
I am a retired college professor and professional corporate keynote speaker. I created 'Lecture Theatre,' in which my informational lectures were presented in a context of live and recorded music, poetry readings, and visual media - a one-man performance art piece to convey serious, useable information.
I have lived in Ann Arbor, Berkeley, Boulder, Cambridge and Yellow Springs; I subscribe to the New Yorker, Nation, Harper's, Atlantic. But I was born and reared in Appalachian Ohio and West VIrginia, and remember the epiphany of indoor plumbing.....
Dr. Layne Longfellow purchased this chateau / country house in 2004
I built this home on this Hill to be next door to my neighbors, with whom I was hanging out here since 1972, when we were young faculty.
Peace, privacy, quiet, natural and human-made beauty.
Every aspect of both houses is unique, having been designed and constructed individually.
The art collection is idiosyncratic - ranging from precious to whimsical, domestic to foreign, craft to fine art, heavy emphasis on the work of friends and colleagues.

Prescott, AZ is a very popular tourist and outdoor recreation destination. The downtown surrounds the courthouse square, a historic area. Hiking/biking trails, local cultural events, friendly people, many historic sites - Prescott was Arizona's first capital, and the structure is intact. The climate is so year-round benign that Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University established a campus here, where flight is possible nearly every day of the year. This is a four-season climate, and all are gentle. This is the home of the World's Oldest Rodeo.
It is a haven for antique shops and those who love them.
You can be as active or as 'retreated' as you choose.
