Property Details

This elegant and gracious home built in 2003 features a refined blend of Asian-style influences with natural Southwestern “Santa Fe Style” designs. Nestled in a private cul de sac on 8 consolidated lots (including 2 adjoining lots) totaling approx. 5.35 acres and backing to lush greenbelt which backs to the Great Sand Dunes National Park on two sides; this approx. 1932 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 2 bath, strawbale home is conscientiously constructed with non-toxic materials throughout. Custom features include natural earthen floors, high ceilings, ceramic tile floor in the kitchen, Douglas fir floors upstairs, wooden ceilings including Willow lattias in the entry foyer, Talavera tile accents in the kitchen and downstairs bath, niches throughout, and artisan crafted wrought iron light fixtures. Earthen plaster walls with subtle and unique natural pigment accents create aesthetic harmony.

The entry foyer features an elegant staircase with Asian-inspired motifs using bamboo, iron Tibetan good-luck symbols, and century old Douglas fir posts and railing, plus sliding shoji screen “windows” in the upstairs hallway. The living room includes a kiva fireplace, French doors, recessed lighting, bookcases and high ceilings. The kitchen features top of the line and energy efficient stainless steel appliances, a Maple butcher block countertop, fir cabinets, and an adjacent sunroom/mudroom opening to a flagstone patio. Upstairs, the master suite has a large walk-in closet, an adjoining meditation/sitting room, French doors leading to a balcony with views of Mt. Blanca and Crestone Peak. Also upstairs, a full bath with separate tub and shower tiled in Spanish marble.

Ample closet and storage space, abundant windows, plus passive solar design, radiant in-floor heat and propane and solar hot water add to comfort.

A large 30’ yurt with a wood deck opens through French doors to an adjoining kitchenette and bathroom. Insulated window coverings, a propane heat stove and sky light provides a wonderful gathering facility for dance, yoga, meditation, or guests. Additionally, an approximate 114 sq. ft. strawbale structure serves as storage, workshop or studio.

This fabulous home is a unique gem, built by expert craftsmen and builders. It offers tranquility, pristine refinement, privacy, and comfortable energy efficiency.
