Artist/Author Gains Inspiration from High Mountain Retreat in Sunny Arizona
Elfrida, AZ, March 09, 2012 --( Adele Marie Crouch is a painter and author of historic novels and children’s books. She is self-published as Creations by Crouch Publications. For art inspiration, Adele has the mini-orchard below the house, mature trees and a 30’ x 50’ courtyard fully landscaped with walking paths and rose arbors, a lower courtyard with numerous fruit trees and grapes all fenced. The gnome statues and mushrooms in her garden work their way into her children’s chapter book.

Her husband is a photographer. There’s much on their 36 acre ranch that gives them muse. Doug’s camera lens can focus on the herds of deer and Javelina as well as an occasional lone coyote that drop by their home for a drink of water. He also periodically visits any of several national, state and local wildlife refuges like the nearby Whitewater Draw that provides an annual migration home for the Sandhill Crane.

The custom built three bedroom, two bath home on 36 acres is currently for sale for only $289,900. Prepare meals in a 15’ x 20’ (300 sq. ft.) kitchen or relax in a 20’ x 30’ (600 sq. ft.) living room.

The 10’ x 20’ (200 sq. ft.) office includes a built in desk, books shelves and file cabinets. The lighting throughout and all appliances are energy efficient.
