Splurge: Majestic Mickey Muennig Designed Stunner On Five Mountaintop Acres For $1.4995M

Much like architect Mickey Muennig’s Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California, his genius is felt throughout the estate. And his use of recycled woods, metal, and concrete create a one-of-a-kind Prescott retreat! Situated on five-pristine-mountaintop-acres, the four-bedroom, three-full-bathroom home borders National Forest, and is the epitome of environmentally artistic design.

A curvilinear organic design embraces nature. Structures are integrated with the surrounding environment. And an exquisite atrium, walls of windows in the great room, and a striking master suite allow you to live as one with nature.

According to the listing, “Two additional bedrooms and bath, plus loft continue the artistry. Studio guesthouse provides a luxury haven amidst the surrounding beauty.”

Steal: Secluded High Valley Ranch Cabin Ten Minutes To Town For $895K

Our Steal: Kristie Cook with with Better Homes and Gardens BloomTree Realty has listed 1305 S. High Valley Ranch Road, Prescott, Arizona for $895,000.

With a location in the coveted gated community of High Valley Ranch, this stunning cabin is hard to refuse. It sits only yards from the National Forest and an easy ten minutes to the historic Downtown Prescott Courthouse Square. Here you get the best of both worlds, with the ultimate in privacy but a city-close location for restaurants and shops.

The four-bedroom, three-full-bathroom retreat sits on two lush and mature acres with a seasonal creek. Inside, an expansive kitchen, walk-in pantry, and upgraded appliances are ideal for hosting family and friends for weekend getaways.

A huge Trex deck and additional smaller deck allow you to get outdoors and enjoy the views. We love the large patio with fire pit! The property also comes with a comfortable guest house featuring a fireplace and full kitchen. The heated garage and intercom system between the two homes are among the highlights. For under a million, this enchanting cabin is a Prescott steal!
