The Chulo Canyon Cave House in Arizona
Tired of the risk of fire, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes? Then consider the option of a cave house.
This one is located in Chulo Canyon, Arizona and it is up for sale!
It looks teeny-tiny from the exterior, but the living space actually extends back into the cave some 3000 square feet.
I’m a bit claustrophobic and I hate dark rooms with no natural light so you probably couldn’t pay me to live in a house like this. I sure as heck would not pay to live here…
Especially at a price of $1,500,000!
It is unique, it is funky, but I’m not sure how I feel about the low, bat-cave ceilings… the word oppressive comes to mind.
However, if a fully equipped kitchen is important to you, this one will not disappoint:
The kitchen includes a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Viking stove, a griddle with copper hood that pipes air to the sunroom and a Bosch dishwasher…not what one might expect to find in a cave.

This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is located in the Mule Mountains of southeastern Arizona.
I’d imagine it would remain cool and comfortable inside during those blazing hot Arizona summer days.
Now I hate to be a Negative Nelly, but this home conjures up a long day underground in a mineshaft, to me at least.
Although the front part does get enough sunlight to sustain some plant life…
I can’t help but wonder how they installed electrical lines? Or plumbing for that matter.
In addition to the main house, the property also features a two-story guest house, a subterranean game room, an office building, a workshop, and a library building equipped with a safe room.
But the special bonus of this 37 acre property, are the natural spring-fed pools…
The crystal clear ponds kind of make up for the dark gloomy house interior.
How about you? Would you live in a cave?
Would you pay over a million dollars for a house built into a cave?
