Interior is light and airy and spacious--3 bedrooms and 2 baths in over 3000 sf. Up the specially designed spiral staircase--a climate controlled solarium that could double as a gym, office or 4th bedroom. Home is heated by wood stove and/or energy efficient European radiators (less drying). No AC required due to earth-shelter. Solarium was built with climate-controlling windows. Outdoors, the sellers have cultivated a natural wonderland on 28 acres. Their commitment to an organic and pesticide free environment brought back the birds and bees, and the result is stunning. The organic garden boxes are mole-proofed from underneath and have been planted with soil augmented by llama manure. Two lavender beds for the bees, Chicken coop with solar access door. Apple and pear orchards and grape arbor. Garden yields enough fruits and veggies that sellers do not need to shop during summer season. Greenhouse for starts in the Spring. A park like lawn fronts Evans Creek, planted with shade trees and an aspen grove. Asian-inspired, cedar-built sauna nestled among the trees. Creek runs year round and provides ALL the water for irrigation (WATER RIGHTS); also known for spawning steelhead. In addition, a 7500 sf tennis/sportcourt that could be used for parties, retreats, concerts, etc. The property is versatile, the best of Southern Oregon living.
