Come live among like-minded astronomer neighbors in this one-of-a-kind development located in the darkest skies in Cochise County. Buried electric and phone lines and a 1/5 share of a neighbor's well. Level buildable lot ready to go with great views of the southern Milky Way in Arizona Sky Village, Arizona's premier community for dedicated amateur astronomers. Nearby Portal is a small but lively retirement community of many retired professionals and scientists, 1.5 miles at the mouth of scenic Cave Creek Canyon and the gateway to the Chiricahua mountains, the largest of the 'sky islands' in the Coronado National Forest, famous for its high biodiversity and an ecotourism destination. Shopping, doctors, and dentists in Douglas, cafes and convenience stores in Rodeo and Portal, a clinic three days a week run by a nurse practitioner,and library in Portal, volunteer fire and EMS. Install septic. HOA's CC&Rs protect our dark skies and viewing conditions. The HOA is best described as "inactive" as of this listing; no dues, no officers, and existing mainly to ensure everyone follows the HOA and county lighting codes. It requires that you must build a home, not just an observatory, and that RVs must be stored out of sight in a garage. Most residents install a manufactured home and install one or two observatories. Non-astronomer spouses find a lot to do in Portal with hiking, writing, horseback riding, local history, trail maintenance, and book groups; volunteering with the library, local schools, the fire and rescue folks, and the very active Friends of Cave Creek Canyon that maintains the Visitor Information Center at the entrance to the National Forest.
