The front yard is a garden of cacti from the exquisite giant saguaros to ocotillos, prickly pears and many others. In the center of the photo you see the courtyard wall and the custom iron entry gate. There is room for horse facilities in the front part of the property.



After you walk through the custom wrought iron gate you’ll find a truly charming, traditional Spanish courtyard with shady mesquite trees and a fountain. The main entry door to the home is custom made of solid cedar.


Backyard and Pool

A spectacular backyard with with a view of Black Mountain. Notice the waterfall in the pool. A large covered patio is just off to the left.


Spa and Lawn

Add a heated spa in addition to the pool! Beyond the spa is a large green lawn any child or pet would love.


Family Room

A large abobe fireplace with bancos (benches) on both sides, a skylight above and a custom made wrought iron fireplace screen. The viga pole ceiling is a trademark of the timeless beauty of this traditional Southwestern architecture.



Custom cedar cabinets, granite counter tops and newer appliances. Amazingly, the kitchen may have the best views in the house, overlooking the beautiful backyard and Black Mountain.


Master Bedroom

Retreat to the natural beauty of your master bedroom – enchanting adobe brick, kiva fireplace, and the doorway out to the backyard garden faces the morning sun.


Second Bedroom

Notice the comfortable feeling of this room with its plastered and painted adobe brick and custom cedar closet doors. The flowers sit on an adobe banco on the far side of the bed. The second and third bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home from the master bedroom.


Third Bedroom

The adobe brick has been plastered smooth in this third bedroom. You can see the thickness of the walls, 16 inches, at the window to the left. The windows are dual pane throughout the home which adds to the natural energy efficiency of the adobe brick construction.
