Property description

New Santa Fe style home with a private courtyard surrounding a kiva fireplace. We designed our home for maximum light/passive solar with the north and south french doors oriented for views of the surrounding bluffs and cliffs. Our super dark night skies are perfect for star-gazing, with a deck and hot tub right off the master bedroom. Comes with fully equipped kitchen and high-speed internet, satellite TV, full entertainment center with stereo speakers throughout the house.

Both bedrooms have high quality mattresses with plush bedding. Courtyard offers a relaxing environment for grilling and dining (a large propane grill is supplied). We'll supply the mountain bikes for the slickrock trails of Moab (and Bluff!), water crafts for the local San Juan River, Lake Powell or beyond and maps and guidebooks to get you there.

Location

50 Miles

Cortez, Durango, Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, Flag

Car: Necessary

Our home is in the center of the 'four-corners' - a vast region encompassing portions of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah containing America’s largest concentration of national parks and monuments. Some of America’s most diverse scenery can be found here – Arches, Canyonlands, Mesa Verde, Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon and Natural Bridges, Lake Powell, Monument Valley - to name just a few. Remote canyons, slickrock hiking/biking, fascinating geologic features and the remnants of prehistoric cultures are found everywhere.

Bluff is a small community of archaeologists, outdoor guides, artists and river runners. Super quiet, relatively remote (no grocery shopping except a small quickmart for milk, gas, etc.) few restaurants, one (great) coffee shop and no bars nor nightlife - this is the place to come to get away. Just walk up Cottonwood Wash from the home to discover Anasazi ruins/petroglyphs, and hidden springs.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: David is a University Professor and Marti is retired after working as a professional archaeologist then a City administrator for many years. Our 'first' home is in Flagstaff, Arizona. He loves mountain biking and rock climbing and she hiking, history, museums and beaches/snorkeling.

Why the Owner Chose Bluff:
We love to hike and explore the slots, canyons and ruins of the 4-corners area. We eventually found we spent so much time in S. Utah we decided to build our dream home there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Many areas of the US Southwest have been 'discovered' and commercialized in the past decade. Bluff is Utah's best kept secret - world class scenery, the San Juan River for swimming and rafting, surrounded by thousands of square miles of public lands with amazing canyons and Anasazi ruins to discover and explore (please be respectful and leave them as you found them).. Check out or for more information on our area.
