About the Property

Centrally Located, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Gorgeous Guest House

*** SUPER NICE AND FIVE STAR RATED ***

Have you stayed in enough multi-story condos or apartments? Seeking something a bit different ... like nobody trudging around above your head or hearing stuff through the walls ... or not being able to park securely right at your front door? How about a quiet, quaint, private, completely renovated guest house in an upscale neighborhood right in Central Phoenix? Wow ... what a great idea!

Built in 1959 in an irrigated grapefruit orchard on the outskirts of young Phoenix, the Biltmore Heights subdivision was eventually engulfed by the ever expanding metropolis to now be ... in the center of the city. This 1/3 acre property called Casa Verde is a fine example of early Phoenix ranch house masonry architecture that also includes a matching guest house - My Biltmore Bungalow. This spacious, well-designed, 933 square foot, 2 bedroom, 1 bath bungalow is a playful mix of mission arts and crafts detailing, mid-century Kopenhavn wall-hung furniture and family memorabilia.

In the great room, relax to the warm glow of a romantic fire in the large Arizona stone fireplace, dim the coffer lights on the hand-painted sky ceiling and pump-up the powerful 7.1 channel surround sound home theater with 42” HDTV. The fully-equipped kitchen boasts a dual compartment sink, disposer, dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, electric range with microwave above, toaster oven, coffee maker and all the pots, pans, bowls, dishes, glasses, cutlery and supplies you might need. The master bedroom has a memory-foam-topped queen mattress, its own 32” flat screen TV, loads of closet space and a sliding glass door with black-out drapes to the bungalow's private covered patio and yard. The 2nd smaller multi-use room includes a dresser, writing desk, large closet and a comfy daybed. It's perfect as an office, quiet get-a-way or private bedroom for a 3rd in your group. A 4rth person can be accomodated on the roll-out trundle, but makes the room a bit tight. (Rental rate is for two guest - an additional fee is required for a 3rd and 4th guest).

In addition to all the above, My Biltmore Bungalow IS dog friendly (certain breeds not allowed). Two housebroken, well-behaved companions can come with you and have a pet door to a secure private yard.

And if that is not enough, for all you model railroad buffs, the main yard includes a large garden railroad. Bring your Standard, O or G gauge trains for days of operating fun while taking in the myriad of local train shows and swaps all winter long.

MBB is available for short or long term rentals at very favorable rates - less than most other apartment/condo units in this area. Do not expect the latest granite/stainless/bla bla fad. It is a 57 year old property with roots - and more than its share of real charm. Occasionally the roof creaks and pops; expanding, contracting, fighting a wind or shedding rain. It's just MBB saying; 'You're safe in my embrace'.

Electricity, water, Dish Network TV with DVR and Encore movie channels, high-speed WIFI, weekly towel/sheet exchange and yard maintenance is included in the pricing. Weekly or bi-monthly maid service can be added at additional expense, if desired.

MBB is located 15-20 minutes North of Sky Harbor Airport, and is within minutes to the Arizona Biltmore Resort and numerous nationally ranked golf courses. Centrally located, the property is close to Downtown restaurants, Tempe, Paradise Valley, Arcadia, Scottsdale shopping and nightlife, dining, bars, groceries, coffee shops, banks, libraries and galleries, Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak hiking, Phoenix Civic Center, Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Herberger Theater, Chase Field, US Airways Arena, Arizona State University, public transportation, Orpheum Theater, Steele Park and Margaret T. Hance Park. Nearby: Baseball Spring Training, West World Arabians and Bike Week, Barrett-Jackson, RM and Russo-Steele auto auctions, mountain biking, motorcycling, as well as horseback riding located at South Mountain Park. Additionally, the Fiesta Bowl, Cactus Bowl and Insight Bowl stadiums are less than 20 minutes away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Hello from Glenn! I grew up in Chicago before moving to Arizona in 1972 to study architecture at the University of Arizona. Several years after opening my own practice in Phoenix, I purchased Casa Verde and moved my busy office into its wonderful bungalow where we worked for 20 years. Now retired, I personally designed and remodeled the bungalow into this spacious, quality rental. Beyond architecture, I am very active with toy train collecting and operating, sport motorcycling, Willys Overland trucks, hot-rods, music, percussion, audio, video ... and my small Coton De Tulear dog Chaz :-)

Why the Owner Chose Camelback Shadows, Phoenix, AZ, USA:
I looked for a permanent home for years before stumbling upon Casa Verde. There is something very special going on here. Relaxing, peaceful, unassuming, content, embracing. Could it be because it's ... green? Actually, Casa Verde is more of a compound than a home as the large bungalow, multiple fruit trees, garden railroad and abundant parking, make this property multipurpose. The central location is magnificent - close to everything - shopping, banks, entertainment, highways, parks, etc. Move? Where would I go? Why? This is my home.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
When in season, 1,000 incredibly juicy grapefruit and 50 oranges. Pick a few for breakfast before taking a peaceful walk along the canal with your dog. View Camelback Mountain and awesome sunsets. What a great, quiet and secure neighborhood.
