360 DEGREE VIEWS Set atop Bridger Jack Mesa, with extraordinary views of the very best of the high desert, the property offers a serene get-away. This exquisitely detailed, natural-feeling home is perfectly designed to celebrate the high desert beauty on more than 21 acres. The home features post and beam and steel construction, with strawbale insulation. It incorporates passive solar design, with in-floor geothermal heating and cooling. Natural and indigenous materials are used throughout the home: straw bales from Colorado, Colorado River clays, fire-kill juniper from the La Sals, earthen plasters, prickly pear cactus extracts in the adobe floors, and more. It has been featured in Wayne J. Bingham and Colleen F. Smith's book, "Strawbale Home Plans." The home offers a perfect open floorplan with beautiful circulation, extraordinary outdoor spaces including a fire pit, rock patios, and a cliff-side pergola, and a gorgeous setting on 21.5 acres with gated access, just minutes to Moab. A graceful formal entryway welcomes you gently to the home. Curved walls and vibrant natural colors create a soothing yet energizing mood. The spacious living area includes wonderful window seats, utilizing the gorgeous, thick strawbale walls. The picture rock fireplace is visible from both the living and dining areas. A natural juniper timber helps mark the transition between the spaces. The central hub of the home is the kitchen, with dramatic vaulted ceilings and clerestory windows which bathe the space with natural light. The kitchen features red onyx countertops and a beautifully function island, with bartop seating. There is a lovely corner pantry, and perfect views through the picture windows framing the kitchen sink. Bright, open, and inviting throughout! The main living spaces of the home are flanked by two private wings, designed to offer privacy as well as to enhance passive solar design and preserve the viewscapes. To the south is the guest and mechanical wing, featuring a beautiful guest room, a third bedroom (or delightful office), a sumptuously finished full bath, and a spacious laundry room. Access to the oversized, attached garage is also built into this wing. The Master Suite encompasses a private wing of the home. The space is bright and beautiful, and features built-in niches and relaxing window seating, thanks to the wonderfully organic and highly efficient strawbale insulation design of the home. French doors lead from the large bedroom to the patio. There is a walk in closet as well as a gorgeous en suite bath: the walk-in shower is crafted with a native river rock floor, the soaking tub is surrounded by beautiful rock work, and the massive vessel sink is delightfully incorporated into a lovely corner vanity with gorgeous countertops. Throughout the home, passageways between the spaces are warm, bright, and inspiring, with art niches, rockwork flooring, and beautifully curved lines. The natural landscape surrounding the home is beautifully preserved and enhanced with thoughtfully planned and lovingly nurtured xeric and native flowering plants and shrubs. Elegant flagstone and rock patios grace the exterior, flanking the covered patio to create abundant areas to relax, to soak in the warm rays of the sun, to listen to the sound of the wind in the trees. There is a built-in fire pit, the perfect centerpiece for deep conversations and happy gatherings. Perched cliffside with sweeping views is a private pergola, an ideal location to take in the beauty of the landscape. To complete the exterior spaces of the home, the attached 2 car garage features excellent storage shelving and work benches. There is also a 2 vehicle carport at the entryway to the garage. Horses are allowed at Bridger Jack Mesa, and the trail riding in the immediate area is exceptional. Finally, the setting is absolutely inspiring. The acreage sits perched above the valley with majestic views in all directions. It is a home built to accommodate luxury and elegance, in utter harmony with the natural environment.
