In the Mule Mountains in Bisbee, Arizona, sits a nearly 3,000-square-foot cave home.

The home’s origin dates back to 1985 when a couple, who fell in love with the area, decided to blast away at the rock on the side of a mountain to carve out a home

According to a video by HGTV, the couple spent 15 years working on the project. They sold it in 2018 to its current owner for $987,000. It’s now back on the market for $998,500.

The 37-acre property, which is filled with plants, trees, and natural pools, includes a two-level guest house and a small studio in addition to the cave house.
