Both homes are Rastra/concrete and steel construction, built to be energy efficient and fire resistant, concrete an/or tile decks. There are no intakes under the eves which are purposely short. Both homes have interior fire sprinklers.
The houses were built by a 30 year-licensed/now retired Californian Contractor for his family. A great deal of planning and financial investment went into the structure. The intent was to construct green, earthquake/fire safe, with minimal maintenance for the next 100 years.
The property has a well, (dug and lined in 2003) 35 gal. per minute, but it has never been connected. The organic avocado grove has a 10 year lease. The homeowner gets a lovely view of productive land and 20% of profit after expenses. Grove upkeep, irrigation, food, weeds, pests, and organic certification costs for the Organic Grove are the responsibility of those who lease the grove. The flat fertile low-land has not been leased and is available for production should the new owner want to add greenhouses, row crops, or horse facility.
