Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: I grew up in Maryland and moved west in 1971 -- Colorado first, then New Mexico, and finally on to Arizona. I met my wife in California and moved her from the Bay Area to the Navajo reservation!! We now live in Flagstaff. Cave Creek is our second/winter home, but we are happy to share. It's also half- way between our two sons -- one at the U of A and the other at NAU. I am retired, and my wife works at NAU, so we are close by.
Why the Owner Chose Cave Creek, AZ, USA:
Why not!!?? We bought it because of the quiet location, great views, and proximity to every kind of outdoor activity (I'm an aging rock climber) as well as Phoenix events. Love the casita and pool.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has approximately 1,500 SF of outdoor flagstone patios and walkways. The back patio has a view of miles of mountains with a bee-hive fireplace. The infinity edge pool and spa by the detached casita are accessible via a unique concrete bridge over a wash. The thick walls and tile floors keep the house cool -- along with the a/c. Landscaping is lovely; you can cut your own rosemary. The swing in the front garden is a perfect place to read. The development/ immediate area is a great place to run, hike, bike ride or walk alone or with your best friend. Because of our homes 3400' elevation, the average monthly high and low temperatures are typically 4-5 degrees lower than Scottsdale. For example, Cave Creek monthly average highs in Dec, Jan, Feb and March are 64, 64, 67 and 73 respectively. While Scottsdale's are 65, 66, 69 and 73 for the same months. ( I bumped up the difference 2 degrees because the home is about 1000 feet above Cave Creek.) At note abo
