Has a ring to it, doesn’t it?

I came across this amazing off-grid home while perusing the Green Homes For Sale website.

The house is located in a magical little spot called Plum Branch Hollow in western North Carolina.

The home is considered “green” because it utilizes hydro and solar energy as well as a passive solar design.
According to the owners:
This house was designed to use the gifts of the earth, sun and water to provide it’s occupants with all the energy they need to live comfortably.
The sellers built this home about twelve years ago as their dream home but they are now needing to sell.

The 2,000 square foot, wood-sided home has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, in addition to an outdoor shower.

Among the features that caught my eye, were the sheer amount of south facing windows which look out upon these stunning rural views…

The home displays a soothing combination of natural materials and neutral tones…

But if you need some color in you life, the private spaces in the bedrooms might excite you…

Splashes of vibrant color, unorthodox angles, and wooded window views!

And back to some serenity in the master bedroom:

The sunshine streaming in makes me feel all peaceful and warm.

The entire house was built to embrace the natural elements and there are plenty of outdoor spaces and decks for warm weather days:

One of the neat features of this property is that it uses a natural spring for a water source along with a 300 gallon reservoir.

Below is the “hydro intake” under bridge at the entrance of the property:

    I am behind on visits and comments this week. I would love to say I lived at Plum Branch Hollow for the beautiful interior wood that glows and for the setting the home is built on.

  • Stacey says:

    This home is gorgeous – and the setting is to die for! I wish the owners a quick sale!
