Landmark architectural wonder, first home in Arizona to bridge a dramatic canyon, built by Gerry Jones, the ''Dean of Rock Engineering'' and for 17 years, a Taliesin instructor of extreme terrain architechture. A pool that maybe the most private pool in the world. Part of the ''Golden Triangle'' neighbors to Carefree founders K.T. Palmer and Tom Darlington, who all grabbed the most astonishing homesites when Carefree was started. Called the ''Sl;ingman House'' after the orignal owners, reached by a bridge, Rock cliffs by the pool have multiple sitting areas as you go rise up the terrain. There has never been a home like this. It was a favorite rental of actor Orson Welles and film director John Huston who started filming the sequel to Citizen Kane on the property. Large casita Owner estimates the casita sq. footage as 866, which has been added into the home square footage. Gerry Jones was quoted as saying "no one would buy the lot because architects and engineers told buyers that it was unbuildable without moving boulders at extraordinary excavation cost. I bridged the house over the boulders, the first bridge house in Arizona, moved one small boulder and saved thousands by using the boulders for bearing in lieu of a standard foundation," Jones explains. In a famous incident, Orson Wells and movie director John Huston, started filming party scenes from the sequel to Citizen Kane called"The Other Side of the Wind", but this filming violated the lease agreement and Welles was evicted. The house was a mess with antiques floating in the pool and even a car crashed into the casita. The Slingmans found Orson Welles had left a pair of his giant size 68 boxer shorts and once the home was cleaned up, each year on he anniversary of the eviction, they hoisted Orson Wells undergarmet up the flagpole and had a wine toast. This is as Classic as Carefree can be.
