Off-Grid beautiful homestead on hillside in the boreal forests north of Fairbanks
2x6 construction, off-grid, solar system, rainwater collection, grey water system, catalytic wood stove, and good design.
Enjoy off-grid living in this southeast-facing, 5-star energy rated custom-built home, situated on over four wooded acres in the hills north of Fairbanks. The interior boasts craftsmanship and attention to detail with many of the finish elements harvested from the property itself, along with gorgeous slate tile, wood, and durable laminate flooring. Solar panels and two 2100-watt generators supply power to the battery system, while the house is heated by both a Blaze King wood stove on the lower level and a state-of-the-art Kitchen Queen cookstove on the main level, with additional backup gas heat. Water is supplied indoors by a 290-gallon tank and on-demand gas water heater. Outside, you will find 1500 gallons worth of water storage for all of your gardening and lawn-care needs. There is plenty of space for your garden, fishing or hunting harvest in the cold room/pantry, accessed by way of the spacious arctic entry. No need for a septic system with an outdoor composting toilet and gray-water system in place for indoor plumbing. The wrap-around deck overlooks the yard and garden, and provides stunning views of the surrounding hills. In any direction, you will find kindly neighbors, hiking and ski trails, dog mushing trails, and some of the best northern lights viewing around.
Located in the hills at the edge of the wilderness will have you seeing wildlife regularly in this neighborhood. Large trees and south facing views make this place a sunny one.
The drive to Fairbanks is 21 miles of well maintained roads. Regular plow and snow management make for a safe drive to the city.
