A piece of Arizona mining history is for sale, if you've got $6.2 million.
The 100-year-old former Little Daisy Hotel in Jerome, which was later turned into a single-family home, is now on the market. The hilltop house has views of the valley below.
Billionaire copper miner James Douglas Jr., known as "Rawhide Jimmy," developed the 40-room hotel in 1919 and named it after his nearby mine. Phoenix architects Lescher and Mahoney designed the hotel for Douglas.
Many miners stayed there until 1953, when Douglas sold it to the man who created the world’s first atomic clock, William Earl Bell.
In 1995, current owners Walter and Lisa Acker purchased the property for less than $200,000 and turned it into their home, according to Realtor.com.
The fully renovated house, situated on 3.45 acres, has 12,000 square feet of living space, 2,900 square feet of interior porches and a 9,000-square-foot rooftop garden. It has eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
Donna Chesler of Russ Lyon Sotheby‘s International Realty has the listing.
