2045 S Navajo Hts

DRAMATIC CLIFFSIDE ESTATE Just six miles from Moab City center, nestled into the rocks, one with the slickrock fins, engulfed in the extreme landscape, a rarity to be discovered. This surreal setting is one to rival the National Parks. Majestically perched at an elevation of 4,865 feet, this stunning home rises above the Moab Valley yet becomes one with the landscape around it. Perched cliff-side, the 6.5 acres are unlike any other property available. Navajo Heights is an eighty acre, gated subdivision of merely 11 private parcels, located above the Moab Golf Club at the edge of Mill Creek Canyon. Within the subdivision lays a protected ancient Native American site with beautiful petroglyph panels, and even more ancient dinosaur tracks. You have the very best of the glorious spectacle of Moab around you - the lush green vista of Spanish Valley, the snow-capped peaks of the La Sals calling you to weekend adventure, the rugged red of the Moab Rim providing the perfect backdrop as the setting sun travels the horizon between sky and rock, the slickrock fins that soar around your home and lure you to quiet walks and peaceful moments. Meticulously constructed in 1996 by Hillis and Tuft, and completely remodeled by Tuft and Tuft in 2017, the astounding home is perfectly integrated into the sandstone rocks that surround it. Luxury, drama, sleek design, impeccable quality, artistry, and a sense of welcome are the hallmarks of the gracious home. The intersection of elegant architecture and celebration of the natural world is prevalent throughout, with curved lines, dramatic viewscapes through walls of windows, gorgeous wood and stone, even magnificent walls of sandstone rock. The sweeping main floor of the home features both an elegant, formal entryway and separate, exceptional mud room space for residents' transition from adventure to home. The Great Room features sandstone rock walls and looks out over Mill Creek Canyon below; a breathtaking panorama highlighted by the chic design of the space. The oversized dining area offers the perfect setting for social gatherings or quiet evenings alike. The ultra modern kitchen awaits the professional or dedicated amateur chef with gorgeous living edge granite countertops and backsplash; the workspace is highlighted by the Dacor range and hood, Miele steamer over, Bosch diswasher, and Sub Zero refrigerator. There is an incredible pantry area with sandstone walls, an amazing space with abundant storage and a bonus deep freeze. There are two large storage rooms located on the main floor, including a large safe room with ventilation system. The writer, philosopher, or telecommuter is beautifully served by the amazing office on this level of the home, although the patio and viewscapes just outside your door will undoubtedly tempt you away from your desk. The spacious "mother in law" apartment suite creates an ideal setting for independence and togetherness, whether enjoyed by loved ones, visiting relations, or treasured helpers. This bright, open suite is well designed with a spacious bath, laundry area, sitting room with sandstone wall, perfect kitchen, and a large bedroom loft with bonus sitting area. The suite features entrance points to the home on both levels, ensuring peace of mind and ease of daily life. The curved walnut central staircase, finished with intimate artisan detail, at the heart of the home brings you to the upper level, with a dramatic family room overlooking the space below and featuring the sandstone rock of the cliff surrounding you. There are distinct wings to the upper level, with the open central space providing a dramatic contrast to the solid sandstone rock featured throughout. One charming guest bedroom includes a private den, perched just so to enjoy views toward both the rocks and the canyon. There is an elegant full bath, and two additional large bedrooms whose bedframes are crafted into the sandstone cliffs, an extraordinary detail. Sweep back across the open core of the home to the private main bedroom suite, its own dedicated wing of the upper level. This restful, inspiring space features dual walk-in closets, an en suite laundry room, an exceptional bath with dual vanity, floating cabinetry, soaking tub, walk-in shower with dual shower heads, and private covered deck off the bedroom. The bedroom itself features stunning curved architecture and phenomenal views overlooking the canyon. As you relax on the deck you will be called to explore the exceptional outdoor living spaces below, beautifully incorporated into the native landscape of rock, juniper, and sage. The expansive patio area is accessible from the living and dining space, leading out to a pleasing oasis with curving sandstone walls. The built in BBQ is the perfect accompaniment to outdoor meals and gatherings, with the large deck area just a few steps below the patio. This space is an idyllic one for sitting and dining areas, with the views overlooking the canyon offering a perfect backdrop. Continue to the lower patio area, tucked into the rocks, featuring a stunning oasis of delightful landscaping and beautiful sitting areas perched cliffside. The spillover hot tub echoes the curved architecture of the home and brings the sound and soothing element of water to the desert; an excellent setting to soak in the view. To suggest that the viewscapes from the hot tub are without equal would be no exaggeration, as you look across Mill Creek Canyon toward sandstone slickrock. Tucked into the landscape is a delightful private gazebo, a perfect retreat perched cliffside from which to enjoy the splendor of desert living with an extraordinary sense of peace and solitude. The landscape surrounding the home is exquisite, a high desert spectacle of undulating rock, living soils, rugged juniper; the lizard and raven are your neighbors. There is an exceptional balance of untouched space throughout the property. Your enjoyment of the outdoors and Moab environment is perfectly supported by the space and sophistication of the attached 1,103 sf garage with soaring curved ceiling and storage area. Easily accommodating three vehicles, there is an abundance of space for your bicycles, climbing equipment, 4x4's, and more. And of course, your guests will find ample parking in the curved drive with easy access to the home's entryway. Your desert west estate is here... a special place that could never be duplicated. Your luxury lifestyle in the setting you return to again and again, for unparalleled adventure, world-class exploration, a landscape that is beyond compare. Moab calls... now, at last, here is the Moab home you have been longing for.
