Property Description

15" walls and roof give you an R45 throughout!! Active sun-tracking solar panels mean no electric bills! Southern windows allow sun to warm 12" thick concrete floor. A "Grow Dome" greenhouse is a fabulous addition to self reliant living. (There is also a large, north/cold room pantry).
Beautiful open kitchen, dining, office and living area with a 20' high, aspen tongue & grouve ceiling (creates a "WOW" from all who enter).
New energy efficient appliances enhance the spacious kitchen with huge work island.
New roof, front entry double-doors, interior and exterior paint, professionaly decorated (furniture stays-just bring toothbrush) gives this home a fashion statement sometimes lacking in homes designed for energy efficiency and function only.
Most of the 35 acres is in timber (fabulous hiking trails) with a strong undergrowth of grass but there is a delightful landscaped area (using tons of locally found limestone rock) around the house.
Plenty of parking with new gravel as well as a well maintained private driveway. There is a large two car carport with two 8x20 storage sheds on both the East & West sides. It opens to the South with another 8x20 storage room to the North.

There is an 8x24 firewood and backup generator shed as well as a large shed big enough for parking for parking 3 ATVs or just use for storage. Buildings are new and well built with overhangs and enclosed soffits.
Only 19 miles to Pagosa Springs and its services but worlds apart in seclusion.
