MILL CREEK OASIS -The heart of this unique property is the sound of a babbling brook, a perennial stream, spilling through a lush riparian valley. Snow melt flowing down from the La Sal mountains, etching its way through the property's red rock cliffs, fractured sunlight reflected on the water, red rocks contrasting against the endless blue sky, white clouds casting shadows that meander from canyon rim to rim, flickering sunlight filtering through silver-green cottonwood leaves along the creek. This extraordinary property rises from the peaceful sounds of this cascading stream to a crowning series of peaks and rock formations that offer incredible views of surrounding Moab. This is a 20+-acre desert oasis uniquely situated at the mouth of Moab's crown jewel, the national park-worthy Mill Creek Canyon. With property lines that border Mill Creek Canyon and the surrounding wilderness fed by mountain snow, the heart of this property consists of 1000 feet of lush riparian creek cascading from a misty waterfall to a cool, clear pond, down through a series of private swimming holes nestled in a lush canyon that rises dramatically to the south, where, with building sites along Mill Creek and Powerhouse Lane, additional possible building sites sit over 100 feet above the creek and the canyon floor with huge sunset views of the La Sal Mountains and 360-degree views of the entire Moab Valley. Water is abundant; in addition to the creek, there is city water on site, an approved well that produces 6 gallons a minute of irrigation, and the true magic of a developed spring coming directly out of the bedrock through which established pipelines and water distribution systems irrigate over 2 acres of land. The spring has water rights that are the equivalent of irrigating 2.25 acres one foot deep every year. The creekside parcel has sewer, power, and fiberoptic pulled to the site. The acreage on the canyon rim has the potential to access water from the existing well and possibly the city water tank, power could be extended from Powerhouse Lane and/or by solar, and sewer via a septic mound system. There is additional access to the canyon rim hilltop section from Murphy Lane and the entire parcel qualifies as an opportunity zone for tax deferment / investment purposes. Offered with the sale are plans for a six bedroom/six bath modern house designed as your spa-style retreat, to accommodate all your gatherings, yoga retreats, as well as a base camp for all your back country adventures. The design was approved by Planning & Zoning and was fully permitted with all impact fees paid and continued engineering is underway to understand strategic development plans. There is no place in Moab blessed with the combination of seclusion, privacy, and development potential. The combination of private water rights, swimming holes, and a private waterfall create an Eden in the desert, only minutes from downtown Moab.
