20 N Behind The Rocks Dr

DWELL IN THE SOUTHWEST Elegant, meticulously crafted luxury home with beautiful touches of the ancient dwellings of the region. Perfectly sited on 12.83 high desert acres atop Bridger Jack Mesa, the home enjoys superb views of the La Sal Mountains and the red stone of the Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area. The home offers an immediate sense of welcome, with a formal entryway introducing you to the magnificent open Great Room. Extraordinary dry stack rock work, alcoved niches and hallways, vaulted ceilings, custom Chilean woven doorway tapestries, and picture windows framing world-class viewscapes all combine for immediate impact. The slightly sunken living area, beautifully highlighted with soffit fixtures, is both vast and intimate, with stunning touches of natural elements of rock and wood. The seamless sweep from indoor to outdoor living is immediate, through the patio doors to the expansive, latilla covered patio. There is a large formal dining area well suited to entertaining, as well as an exceptional breakfast nook with a custom-crafted timber table. The kitchen is superb, with sandstone countertops, a Wolf range, cooling drawers in addition to the commercial-sized freezer and refrigerator. The adjacent walk-in pantry and utility room offers stellar functionality, with an abundance of storage and organizational space, laundry area, and utility sink. Adjacent to the pantry is a large vault room, a marvelous feature of the home. A gentle turn through rock-work alcoves leads to two beautiful guest rooms, one featuring a gorgeous Murphy bed for a superb office-guest room. The shared bath is highlighted by a lovely glass vessel sink and sandstone-topped vanity, and a walk-in shower with beautiful tile detail. The main bedroom suite is set remotely, accessed via a beautiful rockwork alcove. The spacious suite features private patio access and a stunning en suite bath with walk-in steam shower, dressing room, and laundry. The systems of the home are beautifully honed for comfort and ease, with security and camera systems, five zone in-floor radiant heat and dual-system forced air gas heat; central air for the summer months, and a fan-tech exchange air system with humidifier. The home features ICF construction for durability and excellence in quality, with 60 R rated ceilings and Marvin brand windows and doors to enhance the efficiency of the entire home. The exterior living is inviting and equally suited to a quiet morning sunrise or a larger gathering after a day of adventure. The expansive patio areas feature latilla shade structures and continue the built-in natural accents that are so signature to the property. The home features an attached, oversized 3 car garage with heat and floor drains. There is a second, detached 2 car garage which is also heated and insulated, with latilla carport entryway. A third, 1 car garage also features the latilla shade structure and dry stack rock accents for exquisite harmony among the structures. Finally, the setting, a beautiful, modest commute to downtown Moab, but utterly at peace in high desert surroundings. With gated access, this small subdivision is comprised of large acreage parcels and an amazing private feel. The views from all corners of this parcel are extraordinary, and the lifestyle is one of harmony with the landscape and desert west.
