Property Description

Come Visit the Great Beauty of the High Sonoran Desert near Phoenix, North Scottsdale, Cave Creek, and Fountain Hills. This studio home is elegantly finished with Travertine floors, a gourmet chef's kitchen, a marble spa shower bathroom, and wonderful views overlooking the Rio Verde River Valley and out across the Tonto National Forest to the high mountains and Four Peaks. Located just 10 miles north from Fountain Hills, 10 miles from North Scottsdale and 25 miles from Phoenix. Very private home built in neo-territorial design inspired by avant garde architects of history. Built as a second story home on 1.25 acres, there is an eagle's eye view in all directions from two decks. Stars at night are close enough to count. Make friends with the families of Saguaro Cactus - the Angel Guardians of the desert. Easy access from Rio Verde Drive a major highway and only a few blocks from the main paved road. One block from the Tonto National Forest with miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horses! Two miles to the beautiful Rio Verde River! A quiet studio apartment/home yet it is still just 15 minutes to shopping in Fountain Hills or North Scottsdale, groceries, restaurants, services and more.

A one block walk from the deck and you are enfolded in the Peace of the Sonoran Desert, the Saguaro Cactus and the Tonto Nat'l forest.

This is a "Casita" or small house and it really is 1 large Studio room with Kitchen, Living, and Queen Bed (there is an Aerobed if specially needed), a marble bathroom, and a utiliy room and closet space. It is an elegant space and is kept immaculately clean and shiny.

Gorgeous casita in an amazing setting, with the most wonderful hosts!

The Casita is nicely decorated, immaculate, with top end amenities in the middle of the desert. Homes are spread apart, offering privacy and the feeling that the desert is all yours. At the same time, friendly neighbors stop and chat during their morning walks, so one doesn’t feel isolated. We were thrilled to discover wild horses during our hike t... Read More

It was a match made in Heaven…

I found this property while planning a week-long trip to Phoenix/Sedona area for Hiking and Photography. The Casita is unlike any other you’ve seen. Every detail inside and out was well thought out and custom-built by an Architect (Enjoyed the story from Linda and Neil of how they found the Casita and of the builder). Beautiful trail through the de... Read More

Beautiful, well appointed, quiet desert casita!

Wonderful light. Wonderful presence. Comfortable. Views to soothe the soul.

Creeping dawn and sunrise in the east, through the glass doors, across the deck, lasts forever. Stay in bed to savor it for hours. The interior is smart, clean, personal, and welcoming. Comfortable seating inside for evening reading. The deck is sheltered from late day and setting sun, and the vista east to the mountains is graceful, grand, and eye... Read More

A perfect retreat!

We wanted a place to unwind from the everyday stresses and this was perfect. Everything about it had attention to detail to ensure a peaceful stay from the welcoming bouquet of flowers to the beautiful relaxing music, air purifier, natural soaps, and plush towels. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular. Hiking trails right outside of the casita.... Read More
