Year Purchased: 1991
About the owner: This story is really about the vision and hard work of the 3 owners, Joseph, Lisa and Dave. We all went to the U of U and ran around in the desert of S. Utah in the 70's, 80's, up to the present. We stumbled into Castle Valley sometime back then in the 80's. We all loved hiking, backpacking, river rafting, and just adventuring in S. Utah. Now a days, we just like going for day hikes and sitting out on the flag-stone patio - which we also built.
Why the Owner Chose Moab: Land in CV was pretty cheap back in the late 80's and early 90's. We were young and filled with enough crazy enthusiasm not only for the desert but for the possibility of actually co-owning, designing and building a special place in the desert. We bought the land in the early 90's and then proceeded to design and build the Castle Valley Casa. It took us over 7 years, but we pulled it off. We had the incredible help of Warren Egbert, designer, builder, rock climber, cowboy extraordinaire.
The Unique Benefits at this House: It's a bit hard to describe the magic of the Castle Valley Casa. It's not at all High Brow, but it is amazingly comfortable. Beyond comfort, it is dramatic in it's vistas, it's stillness, and in its quiet peace. The house just has a feeling of ease and grand at the same time.
The house feels like it's inside of a National Park. Arches is 45 mins. The Island in the Sky an hour. The Needles District of Canyonlands a couple hours. Rafting on the Colorado is very close. Mountain Biking if your young enough to do that kind of think is all within a day trip.
