If you’re living anywhere along the Wasatch Front right now, you’re probably really wishing that your home was in a place where the air was fresh and clean. Check out this property that’s going up for auction on January 21st. It’s located near Monticello, and if you’re looking to get away from it all, this home, which is built
inside a mountain, just might be the spot for you.
Cliff Haven is built right into the side of a mountain.
It's located about 20 minutes from Monticello, in Montezuma Canyon. The property includes 12 acres, with a three-car garage, orchard, vineyard and garden.
The property allows you to live off the grid.
The home is powered completely with solar panels (and there's a backup generator, too). A well provides fresh drinking water. The new owners of this home will also enjoy apples, cherries, apricots, plums, peaches and pears from the orchard.
The home is 2,200 square feet.
It was built in 1986 and has three bedrooms and two baths.
The entrance and deck welcome you home.
The kitchen is spacious and modern.
Just because you're off the grid doesn't mean that you won't enjoy all the modern conveniences you'd have in the city.
The rustic interior blends right in with the natural beauty that surrounds you here.
The log beams and natural wood make the stone walls and tile floors a little more cozy. The mural is a nod to the Anasazi heritage of this place.
The master bedroom features an exposed stone wall.
You'll feel snug and warm here, even on cool nights.
The home has a total of nine rooms.
The family room is spacious, with windows to let in lots of light.
You'll find special touches all throughout this home.
And don't worry - while you're far away from it all, you can still stay in touch. The property has satellite television and wi-fi.
The owner dug a tunnel that runs behind the home.
It provides a fire escape, and an avenue for any water to drain away from the home. And, it also provides plenty of fresh, cool air.
This canyon was once home to Anasazi people, who dwelt in these same cliffs.
This home is about one mile away from the nearest neighbor, but the sense of community is strong here.
The original owners, the Houghtons, are selling the property because they're getting older and find it increasingly difficult to maintain the 12-acre property. While they love their home and will miss living here, they hope to find someone who will embrace this way of living, honor the native history of this place and care for the property like they have for so many years.
