BE OUR HONORED GUESTS IN "THE STUDIO" : newly listed and newly equipped, The Studio is a free-standing, 500 +/- building located on our 2 1/2 acres of private pristine Sonoran Desert - our "unofficial" Nature Conservancy. It is located near, yet separate from, our Casita Guest Home (Home Away 258249) - . Carpeted, Clean, Comfortable and Caring.
LET US TAKE A TOUR OF THE STUDIO:
ENTRY: The Studio has its own parking area, which leads along its own red-stone path with a red "split-rail" western fence to our 750+/- private, free-standing building.
NORTH : Entry to The Studio is from the north, through double glass doors, each with new Venetian-style blinds for privacy, into the fully carpeted "open-space" studio area (the entire Studio is carpeted). The wall on each side of the doors has multiple dark wood shelves, with a library of modern novels and other reading materials; binoculars with books about the midnight sky, birds etc. Our telescope is available for night-time star gazing.
In The Studio's main area you can sit or dine at the new glass dining table, with four red "dining room" chairs, or relax in our comfortable leather chair with ottoman, or the sofa, or other seating.
SOUTH: The opposite (south) side wall features two side-by-side large, screened, picture windows that allow views of our beautiful Sonoran desert.
FULL KITCHEN - "Save Money - Cook At Home" - featuring a large chrome-faced" refrigerator with freezer, a four burner stove above a full oven, all new "small appliances" (micro-wave, blender, coffee machine, toaster and more); extensive cookware (pots, pans, strainer etc.), full set of dishes and silverware; and so much more to enjoy the ease of "real" cooking. The kitchen includes open and closed cabinets and multiple chrome racks.
EAST: A "day-bed", surrounded by a wood-sculpted frame, in front of a full wall of professionally faux painted "blue denim", located below two screened windows with Venetian-style blinds for privacy. The day bed features two twin mattresses; its top also serves as our second couch while the bottom mattress and frame "slides-out and pops-up" as a second bed (both are clean, good twin mattresses). Placed side-by-side, our guests have enjoyed an almost king-size bed. All linens and sleeping pillows are new.
The Studio's BATHROOM is in the south-east corner; it is a private, carpeted bathroom featuring two sinks (one a designer glass "wash-basin" for personal use and the second, a deeper sink for personal use, dishes, etc.). There are multiple shelves, a toilet and a shower with new fixtures. The bathroom also has a mirrored-lighted cabinet. We provide soaps, shampoo and conditioner, a hair dryer, new towels (washcloths, face and bath towels) and paper products for the first two weeks.
WEST: The Studio's west wall features a "3 person" sofa and a wall mounted large, flat-screen television with Satellite Satellite TV and HBO.
The Studio also has Internet service (wired and wireless, free of charge) and a combination radio and CD player. We also have available a large variety of music CDs and a variety of books on varying topics.
In The Studio's south-west corner is a "double-door" entry into a large, private, carpeted WALK-IN CLOSET with a large chest-of-drawers, plenty of "shelf-space and multiple wooden rods and hangers for clothing.
If our Studio guests request, linens can be washed on a weekly basis.
OUTSIDE: The Studio is surrounded on the south, north and west sides by wide red rock pathways. On the outside west side is a "brand new", very private covered brick Veranda area facing the western desert; with its own comfortable zero gravity and web chairs, a table and umbrella, large wood architectural vegas. There is a water fountain for aesthetic sound effects at the north-west corner and a propane barbecue grill.
There is also a path leading to the large horse corral - "bring your horses" and enjoy some of the most wonderful nearby riding trails that link-up to the statewide trail system.
The sunsets are gorgeous.
The Studio rests within our private 2 1/2 acre "unofficial" Sonoran Desert nature sanctuary with bird watching (resident and migrant cardinals, hawks, pygmy owls and other owls, doves, road-runners, etc.); numerous varieties of cactus and desert plants and trees. Nearby occasional sounds of owls, hawks and other birds, as well as horses or even a burro add to the western desert landscape / soundscape.
Known for its "starry desert night sky" there are binoculars along with bird-books and nighttime star books/charts. A telescope is available.
The Studio is setback from the roadway in peaceful natural surroundings. Bicycle and hiking/walking trails abound (two bikes may be available with a signed Release). Across the street is a "dirt-path" for walkers, bikes and horses that is part of the Arizona state trail system.
HORSE CORRAL: we also have a very large corral behind our house (3 large shades - 12x12x12 with metal roofing; 3 water troughs usually available for our guests' horses to be on property with them. The whole area is "horse country" and has incredible nearby riding trails.
