Located on the eastern edge of the Capitol Reef National Park in Utah, this unique two-bedroom, two-bath home designed by award-winning landscape architect Jack Chandler aims to interact with nature in every respect. Constructed using an eclectic blend of steel, glass, concrete, and timber, the boxy home sits on 20 acres and is surrounded by untouched land on three sides.

Outdoor spaces include a large viewing deck with built-in fire pit off of the master bedroom upstairs and a stone slab patio with outdoor fireplace. Inside, floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the living room, dining room, and kitchen provide access to the exterior vistas, and wood accents warm up the space.

Two bedrooms boast spacious bathrooms, and the 2,149 square foot space ensures plenty of room to spread out.

It’s an artist’s retreat with a western flair, set amongst dark skies and panoramic views. If this sounds like your dream abode, 5207 South Notom Bench Road is on the market now for $690,000.
