Property Details

This 1792sf 2bd/1ba strawbale home on 2.24 acres near the beginning of the Baca sits on a private cul de sac close to paved roads and town.

The tall Italian handcrafted solid wood front doors open to an inner entry space, from which you enter the living-dining areas. A combination of strategically placed tall southern windows and high clerestory windows captures maximum solar gain in the winter and keeps the home comfortable in summer. Vaulted ceilings throughout add an elegant spaciousness to the home.

A sliding door leads from the living room to a large garden area that wraps around the south and west sides of the house, enclosed in natural bamboo fencing with 2 gates and graced by magnificent mountain and valley views.

The kitchen has a stainless steel commercial gas range, a stainless refrigerator, a dishwasher and a large island. The floors are polished concrete with inlaid design and Saltillo tiles.

Tall built-in bookshelves and tree-like pillars under the sleeping loft give the middle part of the house a character all its own, making it an excellent office.

The bright Master bedroom has a Bay window seat to the south side overlooking the garden and a private entrance into the enclosed yard.

The bathroom is large and is divided between a sink and toilet on one side and a bathtub and shower on the other.

This house has in floor radiant heat and a large woodstove as well as quilted shades for extra coziness. An 8-panel solar PV system is awaiting new batteries to be operational.

A large shed is included.
