What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Modern off-grid electrical, and water systems. South facing earth sheltered design with fixed and moveable shade features.

Property Description

Located at a cool elevation of 4,700 ft in southern Arizona. This property features rural, off-grid living. South facing earth sheltered design along with both fixed and movable shade provides for minimal heating or cooling, winter and summer. Electricity is provided by Photovoltaic panels. An on-site well with both wind and solar pumps provides ample, clean, natural water. Natural landscaping contributes to low yard maintenance, although there is plenty of personal creativity opportunity for those with a green thumb. A beautiful artistic design inspired by Italian architect, urban designer, artist, craftsman, and philosopher, Paolo Soleri, the founder and mind behind the Arcosanti community in northern Arizona. Gerry and Ann Cunningham designed and built this home as the culmination of decades of experience designing, building, and living in free-form domes. Free-form curves grace every room and colored glass collected from all over the world makes ever-changing designs of color on floor and walls as the sun moves across the sky. Dramatic views across the valley to Red Mountain behind the community of Patagonia, and the mountains beyond. Clear-stories and skylights make every room light and airy by day. Ample built-in LED lighting cheers every room by night. USB ports and 12V outlets everywhere make it convenient to keep technology fully charged. Separate Guest house with it's own PV system.

Neighborhood Description

Exclusive acreage subdivision. The nearest visible neighbour house is almost half a mile away. This property is open range, and horses may be kept. Rolling grassy hills with mesquite and desert oak trees.

Market Area

Patagonia, AZ is a small, progressive town with a colourful history and very distinctive character. Seven miles from Wood Canyon on US 82. It is located at a cool elevation of 4,000 feet between the Santa Rita and Patagonia Mountains, and is the center for exploring the Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve, Patagonia Lake State Park and Paton's Hummingbird Haven. The year round stream supports trees and is a haven for both wildlife and humans.

School District

The Patagonia Public School District provides 1-12 grade levels. Enrolment at the High School is about 90 students with a student to teacher ratio of 13.5 to 1. There is also a local Montessori Elementary School.


The Patagonia/Sonoita area is horse country, but there are a variety of other lifestyles, and interests here. There is a fairly large retirement component, as well as artist, ranchers, birdwatchers, and those who love the outdoors. Many are involved in local community affairs, and volunteer programs. The volunteer Fire and EMS stations are responsive, and caring.
