THE SOUND OF SILENCE The most secluded property in the beautiful Pack Creek Ranch area, close to where Ed Abbey wrote Desert Solitaire, this 20.8 acre retreat is bordered by Forest Service and BLM lands. Star filled skies, the calls of hawks above, the year-round ebb and flow of Pack Creek across the land, the views toward snow-capped mountain peaks and undulating red stone; the setting is impossible to match. The natural world around you beckons, year-round. Hiking trails abound, from right outside your doors. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, back country touring, motorized trails, mountain biking, and exceptional horse trails are all within easy reach. State and National Parks are the hallmarks of the region, with downtown Moab an easy and beautiful commute for work, shopping, dining, arts, and more. Equestrians have found their home, with a lovely 4 stall barn, hay and equipment shed, large tack room, corrals, round pen, and almost endless riding in the area. The gorgeous home celebrates the Southwest in inimitable detail throughout, with beautifully authentic adobe construction. The gracious space is bright and open, while creating distinct settings for daily life, shaped by artistry, quality, and harmony. The home flows, in a classic Pueblo style. Radiant in-floor hot water heat and passive solar design create an atmosphere that is both snug and efficient in the cooler months, in beautiful balance with the two kiva fireplaces and woodburning stove. The foothills setting of approximately 6,000 feet of elevation makes the property naturally more mild in the heat of summer, with wonderfully effective evaporative cooling in place when needed. Throughout the home, hand-carved vigas, Saltillo and Talavera tile, hand-coved plaster, curved lines and exquisite built-in detail celebrate the beauty of the region's iconic architecture. The floorplan is gracious, suited for entertaining yet designed for intimate gatherings; dear guests will be at home sitting at the kitchen island over cups of tea, as will the large group gathered in the theater-style family room for a championship game or lighthearted movie night. The attention to quality and functionality is exceptional, perfectly highlighted in the chef's kitchen: the ideal triangle workflow, the postcard view from the over-the-sink window, the Bosch dishwasher and high end refrigerator, the six burner Wolfe range with pot filler, heat lamps, and built in grill, the large island and the expansive pantry. The transition to the dining area is easy, with nearly floor to ceiling glazing bringing the views into the bright and elegant space. There is a lovely small sitting area creating the next transition, with gorgeous built-in bookcases and a lovely rock-work niche surrounding the cozy wood stove. Embracing the gentle slope of the land beneath, step down slightly to the stunning living/family room space, in the heart of the home. Soaring, multi-level vaulted ceilings, perfectly placed windows, intricate architectural detail, and pitch-perfect design make this central living space beautiful and elegantly functional. Gather in the more formal living room area, and let the natural world and breathtaking views from the patio and oak grove beyond call you to take your conversation outdoors. Or nestle into the intimate hearth of the family room, featuring beautifully built-in alcoves and seating that transition across the span of the room into the kiva fireplace. There is a lovely full bath on this main level of the home, offering practicality far beyond the typical guest powder room. A beautifully plastered open staircase leads above the family room to a wonderful loft space, a perfect guest bedroom or expansive home office suite. The views from this space down toward the main living area and out toward the gorgeous surroundings are delightful. The main floor continues, flowing into a spacious bedroom with excellent built-ins and en suite access to the half bath/laundry room. The main be
