This sunny, completely remodeled manufactured home is nestled in secluded McElmo Canyon, which is the prime growing location for the Four Corners area due to its milder climate and longer growing season. The property is about 7 miles from the small town of Cortez. The home sits on 16.3 very versatile acres with 8 shares of irrigation water rights, which is more than sufficient to irrigate the pasture acres in the front, a large garden on the east portion of the property and the landscaping around the home. There is a large mountain to the rear of the property where deer and elk are frequently seen and it is bordered by easy access BLM land that provides hundreds of acres for hiking or riding and Ute Reservation Land at the top. The mountain possesses a sizeable and level bench that offers a complete view of the canyon; however, it is almost entirely hidden by the cedars. It would be an ideal site for another “less noticeable” building.

All Dressed Up with Nowhere To Go ?

This mountain parcel is a perfect retreat destination for someone now living in Phoenix or elsewhere in Arizona.

Because the desert state of Arizona doesn't have any real mountain ranges, combined with a serious lack of water and summer temperatures reaching well over 100°, the entire state is a poor choice for a long-term survival retreat. This hideout is nestled high in the Rocky Mountains of southwest Colorado (approximately 450 miles from Phoenix) and so a 6 hour bug out drive is required to reach the site. Having an established and well-stocked retreat ¼ day drive away is far better than being what is sometimes referred to as “all dressed up with nowhere to go” (i.e., you and your family trapped in a large city with all your precious survival gear and food and a million zombies trying to freeboot it).

Located on 4.19 acres at 8000 feet in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado is an Earth-Sheltered Concrete structure built for the long haul.  Green built to save energy, but built super strong for protection against almost any man-made or natural disaster including the possibility of a TEOTWAWKI event!
