About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath 5 Acre Ranchette With Stellar Mountain Views.

*Rejuvenation through Nature* You are just one weekend away from recharging your cells! Each room of the home has a different magnificent mountain view opening to a covered private patio. The glass walls and open floor plan allow natural lighting effects to showcase the unique architectural components. Red cedar vaulted ceilings and cuprous rock walls mined from a nearby town create the warmth and coziness of a desert den. The home's simplicity of design enables guests to experience the Sonoran desert elements in an intimate way. The spacious carpeted master bedroom features a queen bed, walk in closet and master bathroom with a soaking tub and walkway to an outdoor 8 person pebble tec- jacuzzi (heated upon request). Guest bedroom 1 is carpeted and has a comfortable queen size custom oak Murphy bed that can be utilized as an office during the day. Guest bedroom 2 is carpeted and has comfortable adult approved XL twin Murphy bunk beds that also stow away during the day. A guest bathroom with vaulted ceiling and sky light adjoins the two guest rooms and a series of sojee screens provide privacy for all guests. Galley kitchen will meet all of your needs with electric cooktop, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, tile countertops, spacious pantry and cabinetry.
A large observation wall in the Living Room enables guests to keep a pulse on desert wildlife activity. Flat screen TV, DVD player, reading lights and leather couches comfort your stay.
Enjoy an outdoor barbecue with patio seating, encircled by nature with southern views of Black Mountain and Seven Sisters mountain ridge. Tiled floor throughout home including front entry. Capture brilliant sunrise and sunset views or gaze at the myriad visible stars unimpeded by any light pollution. Hiking, biking or horseback riding from our ranch into endless trails will surely meet your nature fix. The property borders nearly 300 acres of pristine desert which provides an active corridor for wildlife. You are sure to witness the beauty and reverence of the desert during your stay!
One mile from the heart of Cave Creek enables you to easily recharge between dining, shopping and other spontaneous exploits. Cave Creek is host to many art/food/wine/music festivities and open air farmer markets year-round. We can assist you in finding the venues of your interest, just ask!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Originally from the Midwest, I moved here to study with a mentor and never left. The climate and terrain provide endless opportunities for outdoor appreciation and adventure.

Why the Owner Chose Cave Creek, AZ, USA:
The property was discovered during an inspired journey to locate a modest nature retreat that provided access to hiking, horse trails and a buffer from metropolitan energy. The allure of the Southwest's open spaces seemed a natural place to call home for me and my small herd of mustang horses. Upon initial entry into Arizona, I recall the feeling of familiarity and desire to live in Cave Creek while driving over the foothills. The commute to work was too far at that time so, I waited a few years before moving north to Cave Creek.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Panoramic views and mystical hues enchanted me as I drove along School House Road. I literally knew without a doubt I would be purchasing the property before I even arrived!
