Beautiful 5 acres with comfortable home in S AZ — Archived

Home Owner in Elgin

We live a little remotely, at 5000' elevation, in Lyle Canyon, north of Parker Canyon Lake, south of Sonoita. It is 5 acres, down a few easy miles of dirt road off of hwy 83, 1.5 hours from Tucson and 45 minutes from Patagonia or Sierra Vista. It is a beautiful piece of property - a gentle grassy of Emory (live) oaks, so shaded year round. It adjoins National Forest, so there is plenty of great hiking/biking. All our closest neighbors (all within a little walk's sight) are super friendly and helpful. One neighbor is a caretaker of an Airbnb property that is very consistently booked by birders and outdoorsy people. In general, visitors are amazed that property like this exists in Arizona! It is very unique. Our home is approximately 1400 sq ft, adobe, cozy and comfortable. It is 2 bedrooms, and there is a 1 BR casita; both are enclosed by a lovely gated courtyard. There are other outbuildings as well. It is all well maintained, as we are both retired, energetic, and love to mostly be outdoors! House Sitting here would require some daily hand-watering during growing season. We have 2 friendly dogs, both rescues with their quirks, but ultimately lovable. And they love their walks. One is mostly outdoors day and night, the other mostly follows me around. There are easy ways to contain them both when no one is home during the day. I entered "Elgin" for our city, which is our mailing address. We are actually part of the "ghost town" of Canelo.... It's on Wikipedia... This is all old ranching country.... no real "cities"!
