Sitting on 37 acres just outside of Bisbee, AZ, the Chulo Canyon Cave House is carved into an outcropping of granite boulder, extending more than 2,000-square feet into a desert grotto. The strange and unusual dwelling is up for grabs and could be yours for $1.5 million.
It occupies 2,890-square feet of living space and comes with a 890-square foot guest house, a subterranean game room underneath the guest house, a library building, a stand-alone workshop space, a separate home office, and a carport. There’s a glass-walled sunroom, a commercial-grade kitchen with stained glass cabinets and mosaic tiling, an-eight person dining room, a sunken living room, two full bathrooms, a sleep loft with walk-in closet tucked below underneath the loft stairs, and a back room that is currently used as an exercise and yoga room.
The desert abode was built by the current owner’s late husband who recently passed away. Maintaining a so-called ‘rock temperature,’ the house never slides below 66 degrees Fahrenheit or above 72 degrees. The home’s natural pool is a short hike away, up the side of a nearby mountain and fed by a freshwater creek for six to eight months out of the year. The higher up you go, the more pools there are to choose from. The owners also installed a carefully camouflaged hot tub.
The Cave House has graced the Multiple Listing Services sporadically for years. Noreen believes it will be nontraditional home buyers that ultimately purchase this pad: “It would make a great retreat for something like a yoga retreat or as an alternative healing place. It’s very peaceful.” An exotic home away from home, indeed.
