Remote off-grid houses for sale in America – lovePROPERTY

On the market with Keller Williams for just $799,900 (£665k), this big home comes with a small price tag. Yet its affordability isn't its only plus point. Nestled within more than 55 acres of private land on the outskirts of Reno, Nevada, the unusual abode is surrounded by miles of sage and juniper pines, as well as endless rolling hillsides, making it perfect for someone looking to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
The house was finished in 1986 and benefits from a unique stucco exterior with a curving footprint that was no doubt chosen to allow all of the rooms to face the view. Despite its imposing stature, the pad actually only spans 1,822 square feet. Yet there's plenty going on inside, including an inviting entryway decorated with Spanish tiles and stone archways, a cosy living room, a kitchen, a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, a bar, three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Many of the spaces benefit from traditional décor, so there’s plenty of scope for modernisation, which will help the new owner add value to the place. The home’s copious amount of windows also allows for unparalleled views across the surrounding landscape, while its lovely exterior patio is the perfect place to soak up the scenery. Furthermore, there are two primary suites, both of which have their own private balconies. 
Yet the property’s major selling point is the fact it is entirely powered by the sun. Solar panels collect the energy, which is held in the battery storage room until needed. There’s also a water storage system, for the collection and reuse of rainwater. Just look at this seemingly endless landscape – what would you do with all this space?
If a remote earthship is more your style, then how about this incredible home in Loveland, Colorado? On the market with Compass for $840,000 (£699k), the property offers style, space and seclusion, thanks to its location on a private, 24-acre mountaintop plot. 
The awesome earthship was constructed in 2015 from eco building materials and is capable of producing its own electricity and heating, thanks to solar panels. It also offers rainwater harvesting and a sewage system, as well as ample garden space for growing your own food. The sustainable spread measures 2,909 square feet and features two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Yet this home isn't just eco – it’s also extremely inviting. Step inside and you'll be greeted by a light-filled, spacious and unique living area, all finished with large picture windows that frame the view. Described by Compass as "beautiful and yet functional", it benefits from top-quality finishes and state-of-the-art materials. We personally love its rustic decor, including its natural timber ceilings and corrugated metal elements, as well as its hand-finished mud walls.
Across the property, you'll find a living room, dining space, kitchen and an art studio, which could easily be turned into a roomy home office or an additional bedroom. Plus there's a solar-heated hot tub on the exterior deck, while the absence of streetlights in the area means you'll be able to stargaze every single night. How good does that sound?
You'd be forgiven for taking one look at this luxury compound and immediately falling in love. Located in Lewis County, Washington, this stunning remote home is for sale with Van Dorm Realty for $1.6 million (£1.3m), but given the space on offer, the stylishness of the property and the many amenities on offer, we're sure you wouldn't regret the investment. Let's take a closer look…
The property was built in 2009 and comes with almost 19 acres of land, a custom 2,173-square-foot main home and over 10,000 square feet of outbuildings, meaning there's potential here for the new owner to create vacation accommodation or lease out the spare buildings on a long-term basis. 
Inside, the main house is light, bright and beautiful, with a mix of modern and traditional design elements. There's an inviting, open-plan living space, kitted out with a living room, dining zone and kitchen, as well as a home office, a laundry room, three bedrooms, one full bathroom and five washrooms. Every single room is stunning and chic, with plentiful glazing, high ceilings and high-end elements such as stone fireplaces, natural timber floors and granite surfaces. 
The off-grid home also has nine detached garages, a huge canning room, two shop buildings, a greenhouse, a chicken coop and an orchard filled with fruit trees, so you could grow your own produce or even start a new business. The estate also features horse stalls, while the solar arrangement, wind turbine and backup diesel generators mean you’ll have power even in the event of a global disaster.
Over in Salt Lake County, Utah, you could get your hands on this luxurious modern home. Positioned on 11 acres of undisturbed forest land in Emigration Canyon, the residence benefits from no neighbouring houses for miles around. So, if tranquillity, privacy and wow-factor design are all on your bucket list, look no further…
Inside, the house provides a very generous 5,300 square feet of space, with four bedrooms (including a large owner’s suite), four bathrooms, a chic living room, a kitchen and a home office. The lower level, which sits above ground, is also the perfect spot to create a media room and gym. There’s even a one-bedroom apartment with its own kitchen, which could be used for visiting guests.
The interior was recently updated, too, and now boasts travertine floors, solid wood doors and granite counters. Other upgrades include its new 50-year shingle roof, rain gutters, air conditioning unit and 90% energy-efficient furnace. As for green credentials, the house has a private well, off-grid power and a fireproof storage facility.
The house also has several outdoor entertaining areas, including a private gazebo and a saltwater hot tub. Plus, with hiking and biking trails right outside your front door, you won’t be short of things to do. If you've got $1.5 million (£1.2m) going spare, then you could soon be the new owner of this dreamy dwelling.

Private, picturesque and palatial, this incredible home is up for grabs for $1.85 million (£1.5m), via Coldwell Banker Realty. Despite its high price tag, the property offers plenty of bang for your buck, including 58 acres of land in idyllic Warren County, Ohio. 
The estate comes with a gorgeous main house that dates back to 1999. The 5,344-square-foot residence has bags of curb appeal, thanks to its symmetrical façade and lovely wrap-around front porch. Inside, you’ll find light-filled and sophisticated living spaces, including a welcoming entrance hall, a formal dining room, a large lounge, a sunroom, a kitchen, four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
There’s also a fully finished basement level that could easily be turned into a self-contained apartment or entertainment space. As for the home’s off-grid offering, it's powered by solar panels and has a 22 KW grid SMA Sunny Boy & Island system and dual propane furnaces supplied by two 1,000-gallon tanks, hard-piped to a 20KW propane Kohler generator. 
Outside there’s also a natural pond, two wells with storage tanks that will meet all your water needs, an established vegetable garden, a three-car garage and a beautiful barn that contains numerous purification systems. There’s a second barn, too, which currently features an indoor tennis court. Now that asking price is sounding pretty good, isn’t it? 
Are you seeking a sustainable spread with income opportunities in California? Then, don't overlook this rural ranch in Mendocino County. The beautiful 160-acre gated estate is currently up for grabs for a cool $1.95 million (£1.6m), but will provide the new owner with a fantastic place to live and work.
The 5,260-square-foot main house, known as Gianoli Ranch, comes with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The wonderful wooden home may be historic, but there's nothing old-fashioned about it.

There’s even an on-site well and 20,000 gallons of clear water storage, to keep you going in any event.
Anyone seeking a one-of-a-kind retreat in the middle of nowhere should pay attention to this property. The rustic and cosy cabin lies on its very own mountaintop in Jackson County, North Carolina, surrounded by 74 acres of private woodland. Sitting at an elevation of nearly 4,700 feet, this striking and secluded spread is sure to be snapped up quickly.
Listed with Silver Creek Real Estate for $2.3 million (£1.9m), the property was built in 1997 and designed by renowned architect Tim Greene. The traditional wooden cabin was handmade and therefore is unlike any you might have seen before. The residence has a living room, kitchen, a loft bedroom and bathroom, as well as bunk beds for hosting any extra guests.
Everywhere you look you'll spot gorgeous details, including exposed timber walls and ceilings, rough stone fireplaces and a hand-carved staircase. What’s more, it’s being offered furnished, so the new owner will get to enjoy all of the home’s one-of-a-kind built-ins.

The high-altitude home was built after 2016, when the surrounding land was sold for a mere $119,500 (£99k). Now, the plot comes complete with this ultra-modern pad, decked out with the finest materials, with plenty of environmentally friendly features. The interior stretches 4,210 square feet and comes with an open-plan living room, dining zone and kitchen, as well as three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Just one look at this breathtaking property and you'd be forgiven for fantasising about leaving your old life behind and starting anew in Florida. Located in the heart of the state's 2,500-acre Cayo Costa State Park, with the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico within touching distance, this is undeniably one of the world's most spectacular off-grid homes. Let's take a closer look…
On the market with Royal Shell Real Estate for a cool $3.5 million (£2.9m), the private, almost-two-acre estate is one of just a few homes allowed on the barrier island, making for total seclusion. Offering the best of both worlds, the home is only accessible by boat, but the surrounding waterways will connect you with the mainland cities of Fort Myers and Cape Coral in no time at all. The whole estate is powered by solar, propane and wells, making it fully self-sufficient. 
You'll find numerous buildings, including a three-bedroom house and a stand-alone cook shack (pictured here), which comes kitted out with a stunning kitchen and formal dining space for hosting lavish banquets. In total, the new owner will gain 6,669 square feet of interior space, with every single room overflowing with unique Balinese-inspired design details and gorgeous exposed building materials such as bamboo, mahogany and live edge granite.
Inside the house, there's an imposing great room with a soaring ceiling, a custom kitchen, three luxurious bedrooms and three bathrooms, with many of the rooms opening up to exterior balconies that overlook the grounds. What’s more, outside there’s a lush garden filled with native trees, numerous shaded dining decks and outdoor living areas, a private dock with a boat lift and a stunning sandy beach where you can take your morning dip. 
Truly one-of-a-kind, this curving crib looks more like a UFO than a family home, but its futuristic design is what makes it so enticing. Tucked away on an 85-acre hilltop plot in Tenino, Washington, its rotund shape was inspired by the Garden of Cosmic Speculation, a sculpture park in southwest Scotland. Thanks to geothermal and solar systems, the home runs completely off-grid, without compromising on style, functionality or comfort.
Known as Live Merkaba, the amazing roundhouse was finished in 2005 and features an 8,462-square-foot interior, with six bedrooms, a living room with rounded couches and an oval fireplace and a spaceship-like kitchen with a rotund island and sleek dark wood finishes, as well as four bathrooms with circular shower enclosures and oval tubs – some of which are positioned next to picture windows for dreamy views while you soak.
The unique structure is formed from various bisecting shapes, including stars, pyramids and cylinders, resulting in egg-shaped rooms and UFO-inspired details. The home's former owner, Rebecca Oppenheimer, the heiress to the De Beers diamond fortune, is said to have asked her South African architect to “think Guggenheim Museum meets spaceship". There are even a few hidden surprises along the way, including this secret room that houses a plush, built-in bed.
It also boasts sustainable gardens, a saltwater pool and an archery range! Despite its beauty, scale and luxurious amenities, the property has proved hard to shift. It was first listed in August 2018 for $11 million (£9.2m), and since has been reduced, removed from the market and relisted multiple times. Still up for grabs via Sotheby's International Realty, the pad could be yours for $5.9 million (£5m) – which is almost half the original asking price. Grab yourself a bargain!
