15" insulated walls keep this home comfortable year round!! Active sun-tracking solar panels mean no electric bills! (Public electric is available in the neighborhood but I have not connected because I prefer to use solar and pay no electric bill!) Southern windows allow sun to warm ceramic tile laid over 12" thick concrete floor. This home doesn't require any heat to keep from freezing-up! The thick insulated walls and southern exposure have kept this house from any need to have to" winterize"! A "Grow Dome" greenhouse is a fabulous addition to self reliant living. (There is also a large, north/cold room pantry). Numerous outbuildings, beautiful timber and old logging road for hiking or ATVs. Lush meadows.
Beautiful open kitchen, dining, office and living area with a towering wood ceiling (creates a "WOW" from all who enter).
New energy efficient appliances enhance the spacious kitchen with huge granite work island.
Newer 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 large gravel parking area as well as a well maintained private driveway. There is a large workshop 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 3 ATVs or just use for storage. Buildings are well built with overhangs and enclosed soffits.
Only 19 miles to Pagosa Springs and its services but worlds apart in seclusion.

Pagosa Springs, with world famous hot springs, offers numerous "city" amenities but still has the small town charm and friendliness.
Medical services, lots of restaurants and shops, churches and a large amount of the "arts" for such a small town. The Pagosa Springs area has a large number of second homes which creates a demand for many of the more upscale offerings that can be found here.
In the heart of the San Juan mountains, this area offers great skiing, hunting, fishing and hiking.
Great highly rated school system.
BEAUTIFUL! Great scenery! Lots of hunting & fishing. Surrounded by thousands of acres of virgin woods. Close to world class hot springs.
Recreation opportunities abound.
