High in the mountains in a yurt

Montrose, Colo.

Price: $149,900

This 700-square-foot yurt with a wraparound deck is situated on 40 acres of Colorado high desert, says Beatrice Whaley, Realtor with Coldwell Banker Bailey & Co. in Montrose, Colo.

“It’s just beautiful out there with large pinon and juniper trees,” she says.

Built in 2009, it has a kitchen area with a solar-powered refrigerator, propane stove, sink, and wood cabinets and counters.

The home also has solar-powered hot water and a wood-burning stove that can be used for both cooking and heat, Whaley says.

“The yurt is a one-room concept,” but this one also has a private powder room with a sink and composting toilet, she says. Outside there is also “a very modern outhouse,” Whaley says.

A 500-gallon refillable cistern provides the running water. Solar panels on the property provide the power, and it also has a backup generator, she says.

Surrounded by national forest, and less than 18 miles from shopping and restaurants in downtown Montrose, the yurt would make a “great weekend getaway” or artist’s retreat, Whaley says.
