My ancestors arrived here in the 1880's and settled many areas of the Arizona territory; the authentic casita, passive-solar, green home was designed by me and is inspired by this background.
'There is no other place like it,' my guests say. Solar, green, well built home and casita designed and built 30 years ago by current owner. Native botanical garden- like landscaping, trails into Forest. You can hike into the Tonto, the canyon just at your feet, or stretch out on the sofa of the absolutely private stone patio and stare into two tall mesas covered with giant Saguaro and their shadows.
What a romantic place to bond with your loved one. The Casa Pequena is perched on the edge of a steep wide canyon. It is a good place to take a morning/evening walk, watch sunset/ sunrise, experience the pungent smell of desert plants and the sing/song of native birds, all of which literally surround you. The Milky Way is still visible here and stars and moonlight shine over the canyon at night.
Tonto National Forest 300 yards away; conservation easement abuts property and Spur Cross Conservation area--2200 ACRES--abuts easement.
