Property Description

Ready for more gardens or horses and livestock-- half of this 2.4 acre property is undeveloped and waiting for the right person. This custom off the grid home is being sold by the owner/builder who has been enjoying 12 years without a power bill yet with all the bells and whistles a custom home has to offer. Gorgeous polished concrete floors throughout and 14' high ceilings with automatic venting skylights are just the tip of the iceberg. Master walk-in closet, large walk-in pantry, laundry room with utility sink-- just some of the amenities not visible in the photos. Property has 20'x40' garage/shop, tack room with sleeping loft, well house, power house, greenhouse, pub, entertainment "man cave," walled in courtyard (where 12+ garden beds produce prolifically), dog run with automated door, circular drive with dual carport, and much more. We are for sale by owner because we want to hand over the manuals to all the house systems and show you how things work. There are back up systems for most everything and we want you to know how to use them all. Neighbors have power and it is possible to hook up to the grid, if someone desired that too. (It's great not having a power bill though!)
Owner will consider carrying loan for right buyer.

What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Constructed with high ceilings and skylights for added passive heating and cooling when mechanicals are not needed. Has a 3.6kw system of photo voltaic installed for power. On well and septic. All systems have back ups. Spray foam insulated; double required R factor in roof.

Neighborhood Description

Rural community 45 miles southwest of Las Vegas, NV. Freeway then 16 miles of (paved) country road. See the Milky Way at night and enjoy quiet living. Only about seven neighbors in a 1/4 mile radius. No neighbors West or South for many miles-- BLM land nearby. Mostly horse properties so everyone has livestock.

Market Area

Sandy Valley has about 3,000 residents but is a small community with four churches, a post office, a general store, a library, a bar, a community center and a park. Most homes are moblie homes as people have more money in their horses than their houses. There are probably 20 stick build homes so this one is a rare gem.

School District

There are K-12 schools and the week is M-Th so only a four day school week.


People are good neighbors but keep to themselves for the most part. There are holiday events and parades in the community and many active members in the various social and community groups. There is a small airstrip about 3-4 miles from the property where owners have their planes on their own small properties. (No noise from it to bother you at this home.)
