Tired of shoveling snow and months of cold weather? If you’ve ever thought about desert living, check out this house in the high desert of southwest
This home is near several national parks and about two miles away from a beautiful state park. You’ll love living here if you love the outdoors and watching wildlife. This is especially true for hikers, campers, rock climbers, and photographers and artists. There’s something magnificent to see everywhere you look from the scenic red rocks, to petrified sand dunes, to old black lava flows.
If you’re not into outdoor physical activities, you might enjoy plays from Broadway that are acted out using the backdrop of the unique red rock amphitheater only two miles away. Enjoy a performance of an array of plays, bands, and comedians throughout the year.
My home is large enough to accommodate a big family, or a retired couple that want space and a place to entertain relatives and friends. The landscaping is low maintenance with just enough grass to make it desirable, yet easy to take care of. Barbecue and watch all the wildlife you want from your own backyard. At night view stars all the way to the horizon because we don’t have all the big city lights.
This home sits on a large lot in the picturesque community of Ivins. It backs up to the desert where you’ll find hiking and horseback riding trails, making it also the perfect place for walking your canine friend.

snow, if any, every winter. It’s usually
melted in a day or two.
We’re also only two and a half hours north of
Vegas, or thirty minutes from where you’ll find fabulous
buffets and gambling activities. Mesquite,
I must warn you, we have very little humidity here year round. I love this house with its spacious open floor plan and so much storage. I wish I could transport it closer to my family, but as my husband reminds me, we do need to downsize a tad at our age. And of course it’s impossible to transport a house unless you’re Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.
We’ve enjoyed a great ten and a half years here. Now it’s someone else’s turn. Please take a look at the website, enjoy the pictures, and ask questions if you have any. All inquiries will be answered.
