    Property Details

    Exceptional Rare off-grid property minutes from the town of Crestone. Bordered by National Forest on three sides, this incredibly private 40 acre property is ready for its next visionary owners. Designed to be a spiritual retreat center, the property features numerous buildings and outdoor gathering spaces for group and quiet work. As you proceed up the long drive from the county road, the first structure you encounter is the main home. Enter through a large deck, complete with a hot tub overlooking the vast valley below. The house is a two bed, two bath straw bale home. The air is both crisp and fresh in the space as a result of the natural building materials. Beautiful tongue in groove wood paneling grace the ceiling and arched doorways, creating a light air to the space. The first floor features a galley kitchen, bedroom, and separate rooms for a soaking tub and wash closet. A large converted workshop is just a few steps down from the main floor, with ample room for most sized home projects. Upstairs the master suite encompasses the entire floor, with dramatic views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains and the San Luis Valley. Continuing through the property along well-maintained roads and rock-lined trails, the first small livable structure is a well-insulated yurt, complete with wooden floors, a wood stove, outdoor kitchen and outdoor shower and composting toilet. Past the yurt is the stunning geodesic meditation dome, with a spectacular wrap around balcony overlooking the valley. Once inside, a modest foyer/mud room prepares you for the sacred space beyond, which features huge triangular windows and incredible acoustics (which may be tested with the large ceremonial drum in the space). Following the road past the dome, a small earth ship dwelling awaits, complete with a built in kitchen and shower. Large Horse stables and fenced runs, multiple walking paths and gathering spots, and a small stupa all are ready for the next land steward.
