THE DESERT'S RIPARIAN SOUL- From the top of the La Sal Mountain range to these privately owned rugged red cliffs- your palette to explore the writing of the ancients and dream at the base of Moab's Sand Flats Recreation area- the home of Slickrock and other mountain bike trails that make Moab the Nation's Mountain biking mecca lies the Moab desert's crown jewel, Mill Creek. A year-round tributary of the Colorado river, this privately held section of Mill Creek with over 24 acres of land offers over one thousand feet of tranquil running water, under a canopy of seasonal colors from the mighty cottonwood trees, with direct access to the coveted Mill Creek Canyon and endless miles of federally protected hiking trails. A spring, with a deeded water right, flowing at over 60 gallons a minute is sourced and distributed throughout the irrigated portions of the property, supporting the old growth and new growth of indigenous trees and shrubs. Finished in 2021, a contemporary 2-bedroom, 1,200 square foot home on two levels with an infinity edge wrap around deck is anchored into the bedrock ledge directly above the creek and flowing spring water. The home features granite counter tops, floor to ceiling windows, knotty pine finish, natural slate tiled floors with luxurious radiant heating, and has been situated and designed for a larger expansion, should you desire. The extreme privacy will empower you to forget that the City center is only moments away and you are secluded, but not left without convenience. The land consists of four separate tax parcels all with access to all municipal services which allows for multiple options to build additional homes, enlarge either of the two existing homes, or expand your estate. The manicured riparian forest, with over 300 mature shade and fruit trees of 17 different species, hosts a lush habitat for birds and wildlife. The property also offers a charming farmhouse, perfect for your guests or a caretaker. The neighboring property of 7.95 acres and another 1,000 feet of Millcreek is also for sale, a phenomenal opportunity to extend this private oasis. Under the trees, within the harmony of the water, just 1 mile from Moab's city center, will allow you to live at the edge of the desert's riparian soul.
