Enjoy stunning views from this gorgeous 3 bedroom 3 bath home overlooking Heron Lake State Park.
This home has R15 and R30 insulation in the walls and ceiling. It faces south and has incredible solar gain in the winter which is stored in the tile floors throughout. There are very few small windows on the north side to reduce heat loss in the winter. There is a rain catchment system that has 7,500 gallons of storage which supplies the entire house with all its water needs. The water has a 5 stage filtering system including UV light that ensures it is safe for consumption. All of the appliances are water efficient. For the yard there is well water, so no need to worry about using your stored water for that.
This wonderful home overlooks Heron Lake State Park and is an easy walk onto state park property. The upstairs is the main living space with a large kitchen, dining and living area. A centrally located wood stove keeps the entire upstairs heated in the winter if you want to save on propane. The kitchen is roomy and has two sinks. It also has a pantry and laundry room adjacent to it. The primary bedroom and bath are just off the main living room. This bathroom is stunning with views from the toilet and the bathtub. There is a large deck in front and a second deck off of the kitchen for outside dining and enjoying the spectacular views. Downstairs there is an ensuite guest room/bath, an office, another large living space with a small kitchenette and the third bedroom and third bathroom. In addition to the attached garage there is a large boathouse/storage building. The backyard is landscaped with aspen trees and drought resistant flower gardens. Also enjoy campfires at the fire pit overlooking the lake.
