This California Craftsman masterpiece is filled throughout with wonderful examples of the quality wood, metal and glass work of the era. Finished in 1908, the Greenway House is one of the finest expressions of the Arts and Crafts Period architecture you will find anywhere in the world.

And the recent completion of over $300,000 of renovations has ensures the home is as functional and up-to-date as it is beautiful.

The main house, with its 6 guest suites, and the adjacent carriage house offer numerous possibilities for residential and/or business (bed and breakfast or leased tenants) opportunities. Zoned for commercial use, the property would make a wonderful executive retreat facility.


The main house can be kept separate from the "rental" units just by locking 2 doors. This enables the current owners their own space and allows the renters their own separate entrance (handicapped accessible). All units have individual baths and cooking areas. In addition to the rental units in the main house, there is a two story carriage house that is 2176 sq. ft. (main house is 8976 sq ft.) That is two units for a total of 8 units. Income is between 50 and 60K. This was a bed and breakfast at one time and could be instantly in operation now--turn key. This mansion would make a wonderful executive retreat or just a great home for a large family. There is also a 2000 sq ft workshop. Do you want storage? How about a 4,000 sq ft ATTIC?!!

Must See To Believe!!

Truly, seeing is believing. Go to the website: www.TheGreenwayHouse.com and you will see 3 virtual tours, 3 slide shows. There is a floorplan and history of the home, the Greenways, and Bisbee, AZ Here is a partial example of Bisbee History:
There’s an old saying in Arizona, “Bisbee is 100 miles - and 100 years – from Tucson. As you pass through the Mule Mountain Pass Tunnel, locally referred to as the “Time Tunnel”, Bisbee unfolds before you, built up and down the myriad hills and gulches.

Bisbee (population 6,400) is an authentic Western mining town nestled in the spectacular mile-high Mule Mountains. This community is the first in Arizona to be named to America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations. Once known as the “Queen of the Copper Camps” for its abundance of copper, gold, silver, lead and zinc, Bisbee in the early 1900s was the largest and most cultured city in the Southwest with a population of almost 35,000. Despite the town’s sophistication, the rough-and-ready air of a typical mining camp was on display in Bisbee’s famed red-light district, Brewery Gulch, which boasted nearly 50 saloons in its heyday. When mining ended in the 1970s, Bisbee reinvented itself as an artists’ colony with a well-preserved architectural heritage that draws history-seeking travelers from around the world.

More History

Visitors should plan on walking through the city’s narrow, twisting streets to view Bisbee’s fine collection of turn-of-the-century Victorian structures – many of which have been transformed into charming small bed-and-breakfast establishments that offer both comfort and a hearty dose of Old West history.

For these reasons, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the country's largest private, nonprofit preservation organization, today named Bisbee to its 2005 list of America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations, an annual list of unique and lovingly preserved communities in the United States. It was selected from nearly 80 destinations in 44 states that were nominated by individuals, preservation organizations and local communities.
“To visit Bisbee is to step back in time,” said Richard Moe, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “Travelers from all over the world come to Bisbee to savor its unique charm – an uncommon blend of history, creativity, friendliness, style, romance and adventure, all wrapped in the rugged splendor of the Old West.”
Bisbee is also a collection of 11 suburbs/townsites from San Jose, Tintown, to Warren. Warren is where the managers of the mines lived and played. Vista View park in Warren extends to the antique ball park were Ty Cobb and others played and also where the Bisbee Deportation took place.
