Several owners have opted for smaller homes around 1,000 sq. ft. since that suits their needs as a base camp; others have opted for more space and guest quarters are popular (as you will be if you build on the Mesa!). Stone is a common theme, 25% exterior required, which fits perfectly in the surroundings.
Our residents love it here!
My wife and I built our home on the Mesa in 2006. This remarkable place is profoundly peaceful and serene. Over the years we have watched with delight as our neighbors have built beautiful homes and we became a village. The CC&R's -- architectural standards, conservation easements and building envelopes – protect our views and privacy and have created wildlife corridor's leaving the forest mosaic and arboreal canopy intact :-)
Rick Larsen and Ellen Cooper, Santa Cruz, CAThe mesa is our paradise. No words can prepare you for the experience of looking out over this landscape and realizing that the unspoiled land that stretches beyond the horizon in every direction is your back yard. For us, this is life. A rare gem in the most surreal landscape one could ever imagine.

“We’ve hiked in hundreds of wilderness areas and mountain ranges worldwide, because hiking is our business as well as our passion. Grand Staircase—Escalante National Monument is the one place we’ve explored that remains endlessly seductive to us. That’s why we built our home here, on Black Boulder Mesa.”

“As Biologists we feel blessed to live in such a paradisiac place with its great biological diversity, its solitude and peacefulness! We appreciate very much the efforts of the Mesa to minimize the human impact on the environment by means of CC&R’s and conservation easements.”
