Description of Property For Sale

The property address is 8747 No More Rd, Carefree AZ, 85377. It is located in a subdivision knows as Carefree Fore-More. The zoning is R1-35 which means that it is exclusively for residential and has a 35,000 sq ft minimum lot size.

The lot, is one of the best in the subdivision for three reasons.

The original home has a total of 6,322.9 square feet under roof. It is of “slump-block” construction with a pitched roof. In addition to its 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths the house has a large living room with a stone fireplace, a formal dining room, a billiard room, a large eat-in kitchen, which opens to a huge enclosed (screened in) patio, a butler’s pantry, an oversized laundry room, and several large storage closets. In addition to the above, the house has, an attached 2 car garage and a workshop. The house has a large terraced (multi level) fenced in back yard with a number of mature fruit trees (pink grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, lemons, limes, plums, apricots, nectarines, etc.) and an in-ground irrigation system. The house is on a septic system that is in good condition. Electric service is provided by APS, water from the Carefree Water Company and natural gas from Southwest Gas.

The house is in good condition. It was built in the early to mid 70’s. The previous owner put a new roof on the house and also made several other upgrades. I have also made several major improvements to the main house including new tiling, some new appliances and a number of custom built-ins. In addition, I have spent well over $150,000 on the exterior landscaping which work includes over 1,000 linear feet of retaining walls which create a variety of different levels which contain hundreds of high quality specimens of indigenous desert cactus, succulents, etc…

Across the driveway from the main house, I’ve constructed a 4,200 square foot garage with a 12 foot clear interior ceiling. This garage is massively built of split face (rough hewn) block, with lots of windows, (all thermo-pane with low E-2 ratings) with large dimensional rough-cut timber veneer over steel lintels. The garage has a 10 ft high 24ft commercial garage door, a small office, a bathroom, several built in workbenches and storage areas, and comes with a nearly new 9,000 pound asymmetrical 2 post auto lift, floor drains, a compressed air system, several custom workbenches with built in storage compartments, and several other automotive shop tools. Two brand new 2 stage 750 series Master Cool Evaporative Coolers are included which have not yet been hooked up. They should lower the interior temperature of the garage by at least 25 degrees thereby making the garage space quite comfortable even on the hottest summer days.

Above the garage, I’ve constructed a 2,200 square foot 2 bedroom 2 bath guest apartment which is surrounded by 2,000 square feet of terraces on 3 sides. Most of the terrace space is covered by a sun awning that goes around 3 sides of the unit. The guest apartment is constructed of frame, with 6” studs in the exterior walls and 4” studs in the interior partitioning. The exterior is stucco, with lots of windows and 3 double sliding arcadia glass doors all of which are thermo-pane with low E-2 ratings. The guest apartment features a huge master suite a smaller second bedroom, and a large “great room” which is divided into two sections by an exposed bond beam, one side of which includes the kitchen and dining area, the other being the living room. The plumbing is roughed in, and the guest apartment and the garage are connected to a new septic system, already installed, that’s separate from the one that serves the main house.

In summary, the property features 4 bedrooms, two of which are master suites, 5 and 1/2 baths, and has a total of approximately 5,784 square feet of heated and air-conditioned space, 4,200 square feet of evaporative cooled garage space and 1,100 square feet of non-cooled garage and workshop space, plus well over 2,000 square feet of patio space most of which is covered.

I shall be happy to assist the buyer in making any modifications, improvements or additions to the property that the buyer might desire, once a mutually acceptable deal has been reached.

Feel free to call upon me if you have any questions or need further information.
