SOUTHWEST SOLITUDE An astounding, 210 acre private retreat, tucked into an extraordinary valley with viewscapes that rival those found in our magnificent National Parks. This lovingly crafted cabin style home was constructed from energy efficient SIPS panels, with passive solar design and a thoughtful eye for the landscape and views. The finish is classic, in an elegant mountain cabin style, with exposed timbers, beautiful wood, built-in components, a wonderful open floorplan, exceptional natural light. The main floor welcomes, with a gracious Great Room style with vaulted ceilings and extensive glazing. The kitchen is beautifully outfitted with granite countertops and excellent flow. The dining area creates a perfect transition to the living space, centered around the cozy wood stove. There is a full bath with a great old cast iron clawfoot tub. The main bedroom suite features a perfect alcove for your desk or dressing table, a gas stove, and en suite bath. Stairs lead to an adorable loft space, well suited as an office, family room, or guest room. The outdoor living space is wonderfully designed, featuring a flagstone patio with fire pit. Undulating sandstone formations frame the views, creating an amazing sense of privacy. There is an expansive covered porch on the front of the home, where you will love relaxing as you soak in views toward the mountains, even an easy glimpse of the world-famous rock structure just to the northeast. Thoughtful landscaping surrounds the home, with fruit trees and native flowers, while the valley floor surrounding the home showcases high desert beauty year-round. There is a Quonset hut and shed for storage, and excellent space to craft a barn or garage to suit your needs. Included with the property is a 50 HP tractor, complete with blade for road maintenance and mower. The home is off grid, with a solar system with battery backup for electricity, propane gas, and a well with deeded water rights. The 210.90 acres are exceptional, a mix of terrain ranging from sandstone cliffs to flat valley floor. The property is perched above the primary north-south corridor, just to the south of the turnoff to the Needles District. The location offers restricted access and a moderate drive to either Moab or Monticello for shopping and other needs. Utterly private, a world of your very own, yet situated in the heart of one of the most beautiful places on earth!
