How would you like to snuggle up inside the embrace of the earth…. with warm natural elements surrounding you…. your own greenhouse full of food…. and spectacular forest views to the south with the warm Colorado sun pouring in?
Well – here you go! This fabulous earth-sheltered home is located in the mountains west of Boulder, Colorado.
And, it is currently for sale!
Realtor Mitch Weiner tells me that John Andrews – the earthship consultant who studied with Mike Reynolds – was involved in building this home.
The structure features ultra efficient concrete/earth bermed construction with radiant in-floor heat.
The floors are made from poured concrete which is also great for passive solar heating.
The interior has flavors of the southwest – warm and rich, handmade elements, kivas and vigas….
This unique 1,840 square foot home has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.
I’m loving all the tucked-in bunks!
The bathroom (below) is just darling with fun custom accents like the stained glass….
The 4.95 acre property borders National Forest land and also includes an artesian well, a 22′ grow dome, multiple storage tanks, five outbuildings, AND guest quarters!
The grow dome provides a place to grow your goodies year round – never mind those Colorado winters.
The land is adjacent to the James Creek – which I’m told is good trout fishin’.
All this off-grid mountain splendor is being offered for $475,000 – and it is only a 45 minute drive to the hipster city of Boulder, Colorado!
Please contact listing agent Mitch Weiner for more details or for a viewing of this unique home.
