    I drove around the town for a while in the Google van, looking for this house. Looks like a nice little town, lots of the same era brick homes scattered about, some in worse shape while others look like they are being cared for. Might make for a great retirement project although I’d want the price to be way lower than that.

    I marked this as c. 1880 as it had no build date.

    A blog featuring some of the homes around the town. Also mentions this home, “Perry Martin Liston was the son of Commodore Perry Liston. He was born in Little Keg Creek, Pottawatami, Iowa in 1850. He married Emma Jean Shurtz in 1876 and they lived in and raised eleven children in this home on 200 N.”

    I wonder: was the house stripped by a “restorer” or by vandals?
    Divide the price by ten and it might be worth looking at.

    I am baffled by the price.

    Quite baffled!

    Best Quote on OHD ever!

    Kind of an odd off center hip on that left front roof line. I wonder what that is all about.

    Interesting house in an oddly beautiful little town.

    “This home is not move in ready and will need restoration.” That’s called CYA.

    You can certainly ASK as much as you want. If you can ever sell it is another question…some realtor has been smoking the sagebrush!

    I agree, “stripped” makes me extremely nervous, especially with no interior photos. And wow, that price. For just a little over one acre? I don’t know what the market’s like in Utah, but wow. But aside from all that, lordy, what a beauty this could be. I adore that little outbuilding!

    I wonder what it looks like on the inside. and the price is way to high for a place that needs so much restoration. on the outside looks like an interesting home,

    Just wanted to pop in and say, I like the new format Kelly. Haven’t been dreaming lately, as I have been busy with work and life…looking forward to again perusing all the amazing homes.

    I’m a Utahan! I have lived here my entire life and have witnessed home prices rise and rise to the point that I feel it is very hard to get a decent home at an affordable price in Utah, especially in the big cities like Salt Lake. Prices used to be really reasonable here, but I feel like we will be reaching California type prices in the near future, and in my opinion, we are heading for a real estate bubble again. For example, a new build with maybe 3,000ish sq. ft. on .11 of an acre(which is a laughable yard size) can be in the $300,000 thousands!
    We seem to be running out of desirable land in the Salt Lake valley(Wasatch Front – where most of our population lies) and land is just super expensive! Anything with acreage is going to go for a premium price.
    Esclanate, is a small town about 300 miles South East of SLC(about 5 hours away).
    It is near many popular recreational areas and national parks – Bryce Canyon National Park, Capital Reef National Park, Lake Powell, Calf Creek, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and is surrounded by the Dixie National Forest. These areas see tons of tourists from all over the world and offer hiking, biking, ATV riding, camping, boating, fishing – you name it, and you can probably do it in this awesome area! All of this, and it is stunningly beautiful and diverse country.
    The relatively close proximity of this house to all the area has to offer coupled with the high price of land in (most) parts of Utah makes me think this is the reason the realtor priced this house so high considering its condition. Maybe they think it is an opportunity for a bed and breakfast, a tourist business, or a retiree’?
    At any rate, it is located in very unique, beautiful country. Most of Utah is very beautiful – You all should come visit! 🙂

    Looks like a home in the (good?) bones category. One would need to ascertain if “stripped” means gutted or just some of the details have been removed. Major project ahead if someone is up to the challenge.

    With the roof in such poor condition the interior of the house cannot be good. I’ll bet that the reason why no interior pictures of the house are provided has something to do with that.

    Wonder what the little out building was used for ?

    This is down by Arches National park, It just a hop skip and a jump to some of the most beautiful landscape. Escalante is a city in Garfield County, Utah, United States located along Utah Scenic Byway 12 in the south central part of the state. As of the 2010 census, there were 797 people residing in the city. Would be a nice get away , a little Pricey though.
