Enjoy quiet privacy in the heart of the Arizona desert, and still be close to shopping and restaurants. This detached guest house at the back of the one acre property feels more like a private home, with it's own winding driveway (bordered with washes and desert trees) and electric gated entrance.
Have your coffee on the front porch and watch the quail, rabbits and hummingbirds. Take a walk around the block and checkout the local ranches and horses. Stroll along the pathways in the common area between guest house and main house, and take photographs. Lay time aside for the owner's complimentary tour of the property with interesting trivia about the plants and animals of the desert.
Parking is at the door, and the guest house has it's own yard (the main house is located at the front of the property and separated by landscaping allowing privacy for the guesthouse.) The light and airy living/dining room has lots of windows with views from all sides of the lush and varied plants....planted like a desert botanical garden, with paths, sitting places, and art pieces.
The fully stocked kitchen has oven with glass top stove, coffee pot, microwave, carving knife set, dishwasher, and all utensils. If you don't see it just ask. Gas BBQ is on the back porch, adjacent to kitchen. Snack bar seats 4, plus a folding wooden table and chairs are available, stored in the large walk in closet. Iron and ironing board, hairdryer and all linens are furnished.
The roomy bedroom has a luxury queen size bed, but the home can sleep 4 with the queen size sofa bed.
Grocery and restaurants are less than a mile, and the Desert Ridge Shopping Center only 4 miles away. 15 minutes to Phoenix Open, Car and Horse shows, hiking Pinnacle Peak, Horseback Riding and the colorful towns of Cave Creek and Carefree.
A gated swimming pool is available for guest use, located near the side of the main house. The pool is not heated, and is shared with the main house resident.
This is a non smoking house and please check with the owner regarding small pets.
