2 BED. 1 BATH. 800 sqft
Welcome to Sahara Terrace, located on a panoramic mesa in northern Joshua Tree. Original homesteader cabin updated and expanded to approximately 800 square feet with two separate wings and a living/kitchen area at the center. Concrete slab porch facing the National Park. Enjoy dark, starry nights, while completing this rare offering to your own specifications. Unlike many homesteader projects, construction is fully-permitted and permits are current. Close to paved roads, yet remote enough to sense the endless surrounding wilderness expanse. Purchase includes a high-quality, secure storage container for construction materials and a mid-‘70s RV that has been gutted and completed with wood paneling for additional hang space. The roof eve has been extended on the southern facing side of the homesteader cabin to create an architectural passive solar design – allows the full sun to warm the room in cold winter weather; in the summer, when the sun passes overhead, the room remains shaded and cool. Home includes plans for an outdoor closet on the northeast corner for solar utilities or a Telsa battery. Roof is designed to be metal (or rolled). Parapet includes a New Mexico style rain runoff scupper/drain design that current owners had planned to connect a chain to so that rainwater filled a rain barrel just outside the kitchen window. Paid, functioning water-meter in place. Electric nearby. All-cash purchase for builder seeking to merge vintage homesteader with contemporary modern.
