Property Description

''The Blue Moon Ranch'', Unique, exceptional off the Grid Solar powered Green home is a genuine work of art: Post & beam straw bale construction provides premium insulation (R-50 walls & insulated ceiling). Solar hydronic radiant floor heating, meticulously hand-crafted cabinets, woodwork & built-ins throughout the home., Nestled in a private canyon on roughly 180 acres, at 4800 ft elevation offers great year- round climate with 4 mild seasons. This extraordinary custom home and setting is comfort draped in elegance, the perfect marriage of the form and colors in the home, the exquisite Mesquite woodworking mesh with a natural feel to the magic of the trees, the views, the canyon, nearby mountain ranges & frequently seen wildlife. Easy to cool & heat in a High Desert environment.rnMany special features inside include 2 gas fireplaces, attractive niches, and an amazingly gorgeous copper ceiling in the master bedroom.

The plentiful private well provides pure delicious drinking water and the home has a whole house water filtration system. There is ample storage throughout the home including a protected bank of cabinets in the breezeway to the over-sized 24X24 ft garage. The garage is currently being used as a workshop. Outside the huge covered East facing afternoon shaded patio is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Or head up to the "Cool Tank" under the palapa in the summer to chill and enjoy the canyon views. There is even your own graded Heliport for convenience or emergencies. State of the art infiltrator leach field exceeds the standards for Cochise County septic systems. A quiet, peaceful estate, yet UPS & FedEx deliver to the front door and satellite internet provides work from home capabilities. Plus, this premier property is located only approximately 17 miles from the town of Douglas, with stores, lodging, restaurants and other normal establishments.
