From highway 62 turn south on Cactus Jack Ave about 330 ft to cabin on left side of the road. 2nd cabin from street.

Escape to a historic homesteader cabin at the foot of the Pinto Mountains in Wonder Valley. Built in 1957 a short distance from Joshua Tree National Park, this off-grid gem is close to a paved road, offering seclusion and privacy without a sense of isolation. French doors open to a rustic cowboy porch that brings the dramatic desert landscape to your doorstep. Adding to the charm, the original wood shiplap siding is in excellent condition. An outdoor shower affords privacy and protection from the elements as you enjoy sweeping mountain views. Off-grid solar panels and regularly delivered propane power the lights, accessories and utilities that include a space heater and a water heater. Kitchenette and bath upgrades include new sinks, a refrigerator, cooktop and flush toilet. An outdoor utility box features a built-in 3.5-kilowatt propane powered generator, while a power pole sits at the edge of the property. Local water-truck delivery service supplies a 2,800-gallon tank. A short drive from shops, restaurants and the park entrance, the cabin's eclectic neighbors include the world-famous Glass Outhouse Art Gallery within sight. Along with surrounding cabins, the getaway is featured in the book Jackrabbit Homestead (Tracing the Homestead Small Tract Act in the Southern California Landscape, 1938-2008). Don't miss this rare turn-key chance to own a pristine piece of high desert history within view of Joshua Tree National Park. All-cash purchase; no financing.
