Calling all desert lovers: There's an off-the-grid cliff house in Utah with your name etched all over its rugged, red exterior. Simply known as Cliff Haven, the remote desert oasis sits in the state's southwestern sector in Montezuma Canyon and is designed in a way that finally makes living under a rock socially acceptable.

In addition to providing the perfect excuse to get out of town and convert to a comfortable hermit lifestyle, the 2,100 square feet, three-bedroom, two-bath home is literally built inside a cliff. But no worries: The far-out location and its proximity to the gorgeous Arches National Park certainly won't interfere with your ability to connect with the non-desert critter segment of the population. The distinctive dwelling is completely self-contained and comes equipped with WiFi and a phone line, plus three garages. Adding to its sustainable appeal, the 12-acre property also includes a backup generator, a private well and solar panels that provide power to the entire home.

If that's not enough to expedite your plans to relocate to the desert and indulge in some seriously low key living, the Beehive state's one-of-a-kind, nature-friendly home also features a garden, a vineyard and a mature orchard.

Cliff Haven is set to be sold in a sealed-bid auction on Jan. 21, and based on its location (location, location), unique construction and modern amenities, we have a feeling that more than a few eager contenders will be battling it out to become the lucky new owner of this rustic residence.
