You can't imagine all the work put into this genuine desert hide-away. Built like a native American structure, the main residence is a work of art. Scattered about the grounds are antique tools and wagons. You can take all day to see it all. Fascinating.

This house is an example of one man's ingenuity in working with what he found to create his "castle". Build out in the middle of no where originally. Water was critical and had to be hauled in for drinking and cooking. Not war from all...More
