If you’re looking for a new home these days, you’re not alone. It’s a sellers market out there and property is going fast.
It’s almost like a fanatical and possibly psychopathic cat lover has no room in this world anymore.
If you’re looking for a new home, and you’re really into cats, theres a place in one of the sunnier nooks of Arizona you should check out.
The house at 669 Stanford Drive (Country Road 8235) is a spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom log cabin, with both charm and scratching posts to spare. Perfect for “the cat fancier,” the Coldwell Banker listing suggests.
“If you love cats this is the home for you! If not bring your sandblaster. Custom build, hardwood kitchen cabinets (Oak, Lacewood, and Bocote) artistically accented with river rock.”
Along with custom build cat condos and walkways for your furry friends, there’s also a Medieval castle, made out of stone, with different levels for cats to entertain their court.
For locals, just head east on US-60 out of Show Low from the Maverick at the corner of Deuce of Clubs and Hwy 77 to the Y. Keep left on US-61, and turn left on Stanford Road. Head north about 10.4 miles until you come to the sign.
Of course, a cool $240,000 gets you more than just a crazy cat cabin on the outskirts of the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest. Those with human children have access to schools in District No. 6, which Onboard Informatics rates as “average.”
According to AZ Central, the house is plastered tail to tip with cat pictures and cat-themed keepsakes, with cat puzzles fixed to the ceiling.
It took 10 years to finish this home the way its creator intended, and at most it’s only ever seen three cats.
“All the pictures on the walls are basically postcards or pictures she’s cut out of magazines,” said Elizabeth Keller, a real-estate agent for Century 21 High Country. “You could not even tell she had cats in there,”
When Robert McNamara traveled the U.S. with his cat, he hadn’t planned on stopping in Stanford, but the trip did leave blind, deaf, 20-year-old Lily a semi-permanent resident of Florida for a few weeks.
