This is a modern homestead that offers affordable, independent living in a locale that has a very mild year-round climate. In addition to conventional features (public water and grid-tied electric, household appliances, electric hot water, etc.) this property has parallel alternative features such as: off-grid electric, solar hot water, large-capacity rainwater tanks, beautiful stonework, ultra-efficient woodstove, cold-dry bulk food storage, raised-bed organic vegetable gardens and a geodesic dome greenhouse, and guest RV pad with hook-ups. Comparatively low county property and sales taxes.
Surround yourself in nature with native wildflower beds, greenhouse, fenced organic vegetable gardens and stonework that provides craftsman style accents and unique rustic charm. This 1,300 sq. ft. home with 2 bedrooms/ 2 full-baths has plenty of natural light and was completed in 2015.
Aging in-place features include: gentle rise at front entry stoop steps; open floor plan at one level with porcelain tiled floors; master bedroom and bathroom have 36" wide door openings; shallow shower pans with seating; toilet alcove can be retrofitted with grab bars. Compact design provides for spacious common areas, low maintenance and affordable annual housing costs. House and grounds emphasize practical function, durable finishes, and sustainability.
Ultra-efficient, EPA certified woodstove, with a rated heating capacity of 1,200 - 2,000 sq.ft., usually needing only 5 ricks/1.5 cord of firewood per heating season. (There is no central heating.) This modern woodstove has proven to be the most affordable, dependable and efficient means of heating this home.
The floor covering is entirely porcelain tile, with the exception of the utility area and walk-in closet. Porcelain tile is also installed along the kitchen counter wall, dining area chair-rail, and around the walls at the woodstove. Public water, private septic and 220 volt/200 amp grid electric service.
In addition, there are expandable 600 watt array/765 amp battery bank solar off grid electric and a solar hot water systems. Other features include: 2 large fenced vegetable garden areas with an additional 400 feet of 5' high galvanized wire perimeter deer fence; 16' diameter geodesic dome greenhouse; 8' x 12' shed/workshop; and 10'x10' steel reinforced concrete bermed out-building; ceiling fixtures prewired for fans. (The Solar Hot Water collectors have been running since March 15th this season!)
