Outside the fences...


Enjoy the privacy of our outside corner, pie-shaped lot where the point of the pie is behind the house in an area kept open and natural.  To the front of the house is a maintained natural landscape featuring several wonderful old saguaros.  Palo Verde and Mesquite trees are manicured and the grounds are raked monthly.  Cactus are groomed to avoid nesting areas for critters we would rather not have living close to the house.  The space to the east and north of our home is kept wild as is the practice throughout the neighborhood.  Bunnies wander about foraging in the mornings along with quail and doves, hummingbirds stop by to visit with occasional ravens, woodpeckers and lots of cactus wren.  You will hear the coyotes at night and maybe even catch glimpse of one or the pesky javalina catching a cactus root snack.

Welcome to Rancho Tierra, AZ

Your Home Away From Home

Within the fences...


Inside the Fences you will find a quiet, very private little oasis listening to the ever present voices of the winged ones, the soft whisper of the windchimes or just the gentle breezes through the palo verde and mesquite trees.  Enjoy morning exercises or an afternoon or evening dip in the splash pool (2-4' deep), a relaxing soak in the spa, quiet time at the meditation pond or smores around an evening fire.


We have done our best to keep stickery, pokey, sharp and unfriendly plants and critters out of the fenced area making it a pleasant as we can in this wild desert environment that hosts the community of Desert Foothills North.
