What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

The home has good passive solar orientation with open solar access for natural lighting and passive heating. The home interior walls are earthen plaster, each room a different color of Earth Clay from the American Clay Company. Most windows are low-E double glazed with custom made insulated curtains. The home is compact with a woodstove and natural gas and takes little energy to heat, with ceiling fans for cooling, and trees planted around strategically for summer shading and winter sun. The home’s exterior is a virtual botanical garden of edible, medicinal, and habitat plantings, with over 60 different species of perennial trees, shrubs, vines, and herbs, as well as fertile annual garden beds. A rainwater harvesting system with 4,000 gallons of storage irrigates the gardens by gravity. Garden beds are sunken and deeply mulched, some with ollas (clay pots) buried for trickle irrigation. Greywater from the shower/bath and bathroom sink as well as the laundry machine are fed to plantings sub-surface through a legal branched drain greywater system that is effortlessly maintained. An antique hand-dug well with water at 7 to 17 feet is pumped by a solar panel into a wetlands water treatment system called a living machine, designed by Dr. John Todd himself. The well water is then used for irrigation. The yard also includes a chicken house and shaded chicken area, and an almost finished earthbag, cobb and strawbale structure that could be an office or meditation room. The whole yard was designed using permaculture principles for ease of maintenance and beneficial relationships between each element.

Property Description

Simple, elegant and sustainable, this in-town permaculture paradise sits on the most fertile area of town on a quiet and charming street. It is the bicyclist or pedestrians dream, just minutes on bike trails from shops, groceries, and the downtown square. The house has been a permaculture demonstration site for years, with an abundant landscape fed by harvested rainwater and greywater. The interior of the home is earth clay with original restored wood floors, giving it a warm colorful feeling. The home is compact and efficient, taking little energy to heat and cool. The home opens up to the gardens and mostly pleasant weather outside, with tall trees up and down the block.

Neighborhood Description

The house is the heart of the Ecohood, a collection of ecologically minded folks living on the same block and adjacent streets that are practicing simple living and ecological sustainability. Wooded bike trails lead to the downtown square in under 5 minutes. Huge Cottonwood trees surround the creek that flows 100 yards away in this friendly pedestrian neighborhood. The neighborhood is ethnically diverse, and is 2 minutes from Prescott College, the liberal environmental school. Most people that live here find it very desirable due to it's close proximity to services and environmentally oriented population. It is very safe: we don't ever lock our doors and have never had any problems with theft or violence. An adjacent ¼ acre lot with a house and adjoining backyard is also for sale.
