5 BR 3BA Ideal base for your outbound adventures: hike, bike, horses & more!
You’re driving for about 15 minutes away from St. George, on what feels like a private or secret highway, as one exquisite panorama after another unfolds before you. Soon you arrive to your private, beautiful, rural and luxurious abode in the desert. Welcome to your nest for the next few days or weeks as you explore amazing southwestern Utah!
Outside of St. George exist several valley communities. Its big sky and mountain paradise, and also a stone’s throw from the spectacular Snow Canyon Park. Snow Canyon Park hikes rival those of Zion for color, beauty, flora and fauna. Having this resource a 5 minute drive away is extraordinary. Moreover, if you are a serious hiker, you can walk out of the backyard into the BLM trails right behind the house and set foot to Snow Canyon. Or arrange for either guided horseback riding or trekking with an experienced local. And to make coming home better still, note that the house location is about 10 degrees cooler than St. George proper in the hot months.
THE HOUSE: Unquestionably unique (not just a pretty face) with tremendous views from all windows. Unusually private. Built by the previous owners to their exacting and green specifications, you will be instantly transported when you enter the house and feel the open floor plan, see the light filled spaces, hear the peace and quiet and appreciate the original works of art. The house is a true retreat from everyday life.
Open floor plan – lots of natural light—private, quiet, peaceful- a true retreat from city life. Neighbors are actually fairly close, but you can’t see or hear them while on the property because of the intelligent placement of the house on the one acre lot. Geothermal heating and air conditioning makes for continued quiet even when using heat and A/C.
You will experience the great care which has gone into both equipping and decorating house, utilizing high quality materials throughout. Lots of gathering spaces—in and out of doors, large and small nooks and reading areas. The house is well suited for 10 guests and 12 if the additional two are children.
CONNECTIVITY: WIFI is very good. There is a landline but cellular service is spotty in the valley overall unless you have AT&T (we have a micro-booster – let me know in advance if you have AT&T and I’ll add your phone number to users) OR if you can utilize your phone service via the internet (e.g. T-Mobile.)
THE LIVING ROOM is furnished with two comfortable full size sofas and additional seating for singles, a 55” Smart TV set and sound bar to stream your movies, shows and music. No cable TV at present time.
THE KITCHEN: Some people refer to a well-designed kitchen as a “chef’s kitchen.” In this case it’s true! The previous owners are the owners of the best restaurant in town: a farm to table gourmet experience. Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and even light baking. The coffee maker is a Keurig and some coffee is provided in addition to enough oatmeal, raisins and brown sugar to get you through at least a couple of breakfasts.
THE DINING ROOM Seats ten with ease.
THE BEDROOMS: Two Master suites. In the larger of the two, upstairs with 5 piece bath, you'll enjoy 360 degree views of surrounding desert and mountains. The second Master is more private, with a smaller bathroom. It's through this second Master that you can access a children's loft (or reading space or "what you will") which also has a surround view.

Master 2: King mattress and attached bath (no tub) in a Casita attached to house.

THE PATIO has very comfortable seating: two love seats and two chairs and three ottomans.
THE YARD is a large and grassy field for games and more! A young child’s jungle gym will help entertain the little ones.
