Historic Mountain Club Cabin
"A good place to live is a good place to live regardless of the century" says the Seller of this historic cabin in the Hassayampa Mountain Club. Nestled in the oaks and ponderosa pines on an idyllic elevated corner lot across from meandering Manzanita Creek, this property reveals evidence of Yavapai Indian inhabitation from pottery shards and stone tools found here. The cabin was originally built in 1928 by Sidney Moeur (nephew of the 4th governor of Arizona, Benjamin Moeur), a lawyer who "had done legal work for the Club and was paid with his choice of a lot, on which he had built a small cabin."
Abundant use of wood gives this two bedroom, 1.5 bath home a rustic character and simplicity still reigns throughout. From the board and batten exterior to tongue and groove ceilings to wood plank interior siding, the home harkens to an earlier time when small was beautiful! Abundant windows offer views into the Ponderosa pine forest and the parcel is terraced with patios, sitting areas and herb gardens nestled in the boulders, inviting you outside to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of this rich native habitat.
The main level offers a cozy Great Room with kitchen, living and dining area in a shared space. An adjacent enclosed sunroom is minimally separated from the Great Room with moveable pocket windows, allowing unobstructed views into the trees. It features a super-efficient wood burning stove which readily heats the home when the forced natural gas heat is not desired.
On the opposite side of the Great Room, the bedroom offers room for a queen bed as well as a sitting area with sliding door to the yard. Make certain to check out the Old West style wall paper in the 2 closets! Truly precious! A full bathroom sports a tub shower combo and free standing pedestal sink.
The lower level is accessed from the outside from both the front and back patios. With laundry room, half bath, potential bedroom and storage space, this area provides a wide range of uses and has entries on both the north and south sides. With a sliding window partly ajar, the Sellers cats have a safe place to explore in an outside screened enclosure. A generous area of the parcel is fenced to discourage wildlife from venturing too close and to encourage pets to stick around.
The terraced parcel beckons you outside to listen to enjoy Ponderosa pine scents, to relish in the murmur of the breeze through the trees, to revel in bird and wildlife watching, and to simply spend time being under the canopy of our vast skies. The neighborhood is friendly, walking is pleasant in the dappled shade, playing is encouraged at the nearby Hassayampa Mountain Club Park, and entertainment at the Courthouse Square is only a mile away.
