The self-sufficient house hidden in a Utah cliff that will make you fall in love

Cliff Haven. Located in Southeastern Utah, the three-bedroom, two-bath home sits on 12 acres and has all the modern conveniences you'd expect - WiFi, a detached 2-car garage, and delivery on Amazon, for example.

But that's where the similarities to urban life stop. Unlike your average tract home, the 2,100-square-foot, low-energy home was built into a cliff. Similar in color to the stunning red rock formations in nearby Arches National Park, the cliff house allows nature to take center stage. Even the master bedroom features the red rocks as a backdrop.

The property is also self-sufficient. Solar panels power the entire home, while a private well provides fresh water and a 12,000-gallon cistern collects rainwater and runoff. There is a backup diesel generator to ensure power as well.

When the original owner built the property in 1986, they tunnelled behind the house to help with water runoff and create a natural system of fresh air circulation. Throw in a vineyard, orchard and mature orchard, think apples, peaches, cherries and more, and you have the characteristics of a complete cave castle off the grid.

The house is 200 square meters and the entire farm is 12 hectares.
