About Utah

img

Utah (from the Ute for, “people of the mountains), located in western United States, is one of the most geographically endowed states in the nation. The Rocky Mountains, with their jagged, snowy peaks, run through the northeast corner of the state. The Basin and Ridge Region extends over western Utah, famous for the Bonneville Salt Flats. South and eastern Utah is distinguished by the Colorado Plateau, high country marked by striking canyons and deep valleys. Southeastern Utah is known as Four Corners, neatly touching the borders of Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. The State of Utah is closely associated with the Mormon religion.

Mormons cultivated lands with irrigation when they first arrived in the mid-19 th century, but very little acreage in Utah is devoted to farming. Mineral exploitation spurred economic growth in the region, chief among them the mining of copper.

WWII brought industrial growth and military installations to the state, and more recently the manufacture of spacecraft, computer hardware, software and electronics have contributed to a dynamic economy. Coupled with a healthy tourism trade and petroleum production, Utah is living up to its state nickname of ,“Industry."

Charming Older Home with Heated Shop, Barns, Creek, Private but close to town

Smithfield, Cache County, Utah


Location, Location, Location.. This is a location our friends in town wish they had. An idealic 360 degree mountain view setting in the valley at the end of the paved road. We have trees, a creek, neighbors pastures including wooded areas and ponds all around yet close to thriving Logan with Utah State University and many booming businesses. This is a quaint farmhouse with lots of history for sale. This is not a million Dollar home with more bedrooms and bathrooms than you can keep up cleaning and a 5 car garage you don't need. This is much better. Think Little House on the Prairie or Anne of Green Gables (with an e), then you get the picture. This is a place with decades old big trees for the children to climb and build tree houses in that new homes can't offer in the lifetime of a child, this is a place where teenagers can work on cars and motorcycles in the shop instead of playing computer games, this is a place where you can warm up by the hearth with a book after coming in from the cold in the Winter, a place where you can grow your own food, a place where you can eat dried apricots grown in your orchard, and eat apple sauce you canned during the bountiful harvest, a place where you can soak in the original claw foot tub after a hard day of work, a place you can keep your horses, raise organic grass fed beef, have a milking goat or two, sheep, meat rabbits, carrier pigeons, whatever you can dream of, there is room. This cute farm house sits on 7 ½ acres has water rights and a hand line (included in the bargain price), many outbuildings, a 34x34 heated shop, two wells, a stream, 40 foot Mittleider green house, 5 Mittleider garden boxes with strawberries, raspberries, black berries, sea berries, rhubarb, and room for other crops, you get a 18 kw solar system with your purchase which translates into NO electricity bill all year. A separate heated office allows for a homebusiness or just some peace and quiet to work undisturbed, a well insulated shed offers a place for animals, even baby animals stay warm with a heat lamp in there. A bonus room in the garage offers more storage or could be a bedroom for guests and to top all these incredible amenities of, there is a fully functional sauna included as well. Great benefits from using a sauna, if you are not familiar with them, google it and stay healthy with a regular sauna visit. The house is completely renovated from top to bottom. The original wood flooring and added wood trimming creates a warm inviting atmosphere. Electricity has all been redone. new rafters to open up the vaulted ceiling, new plumbing, new kitchen less than a week old with lifeproof waterproof flooring, brand new furnace installed by Alpha Mechanical, and high efficiency washing machine, and more. 5 minute horse ride to the Forester Acres horse arena. This house provided the perfect home to raise our 7 children. It is located at the end of a county road that turns into a dirt road right passed the house, making for very little traffic. The kitchen is surrounded with windows which help make it friendly but also give you a chance to watch children in all directions. There is room to run and play for every age. We have lots of beautiful memories here and want the house to become the home to someone who can appreciate the warm welcoming energy it has to offer. If you are looking for brand new everything, this is not for you. If you are looking for a magical place right out of a story book, this might just be it. We are happy to answer any and all questions.
