Kayenta serves up red rock cliffs, seasonal waterfalls, and desert sagebrush that stretch off into the horizon. This special home offers unparalleled outdoor living and entertainment space to take full advantage of both the unique natural beauty and perpetually sunny days for which southern Utah is noted. Positioned on a slightly elevated lot in the desirable upper Shonto area of the community, this corner lot on a quiet cul-de-sac provides spectacular views coupled with serenity and privacy.
An open, expansive front courtyard successfully combines Southwestern and Zen-like elements and welcomes visitors into the home’s interior spaces. The generously-sized entry foyer leads directly into a large, high-ceilinged living area with a modern fireplace and framed on two sides by large picture windows perfectly framing the contours of Red Mountain in the distance. The well-equipped kitchen expands to a delightful breakfast nook area with its own kiva fireplace, a perfect spot for family members or guests to relax, converse and share the chef’s latest creation. Directly adjacent, the kitchen opens onto an outdoor living, dining, and entertainment area seldom seen in any home. This area has retractable awnings which enables it to be used any time of day…any season of the year.
The master bedroom boasts picture windows, tall ceilings and a contemporized kiva fireplace, while the spa-like master bathroom has an oversized walk-in shower and adjoining steam room…a great way to unwind after a challenging bike ride or hike on a nearby nature trail. A recent renovation and addition has created a sophisticated, casita-like junior master suite, complete with its own ensuite bathroom and separate entrance to both the home and the garage.
Though offering serenity and seclusion, the home is only a short distance to the Kayenta Art Village, with its galleries, restaurant and Center for the Arts; numerous hiking and biking trails; tennis and pickleball courts; the community swimming pool; desert arboretum; and so much more. Experience all that Kayenta has to offer in this stunning Kayenta classic.Virtual Tour
