We chose this property, primarily for it`s views. When a person steps on this property for the first time, the comment we always hear is "What a view".
With 15 windows you will see a fantastic view from every room.
Passive solar design..... It was incorporated into the house when it was built. The 15 windows on the south, east, and west sides, allows the house to collect the sun in the winter, and repel the sun`s heat in the summer. There are 6 different layers of materials that cover the walls to make this house air tight. Both save energy.
Privacy and seclusion..... is premium on this 2.89 +/- acre mountaintop. With no full time residents within sight, but not far away for a sense of community.
Abundance of decking..... to take advantage of the views, with a wrap around deck on 3 sides of the house, and has a ramp for easy access to the deck. There is over 1,000 +/- sq. ft. of deck, plus 450 +/- sq. ft. of inclosed courtyard. Plenty of room for your outdoor entertainment.
The courtyard..... is completely closed in with lattice and is landscaped with lots of plants. On one side is a cascading waterfall into a pond. A beautiful and peaceful setting just to sit back and enjoy the afternoon. (Pond is complete except for lining and pump)
Two private living quarters... are designed into the home. They are located on opposite sides of the house, with the living room, laundry area and garage separating each for privacy.
One is designed with a family room, master bedroom, and his and hers bathrooms and closets. The other has a family room/bedroom, a master bedroom, large walk through closet, and full bath.
This layout can be utilized many ways. One side can be used for private guest quarters, live-in relative, or room rental. It works perfect as a vacation home that will accommodate two families.
Natural pine everywhere..... walls, ceilings, and floors are all covered in a beautiful custom tongue and groove pine. Living room and kitchen have vaulted ceilings for a more open feeling.
In the living room there is a special large "art wall" for art work, which incorporates a large mantel.
Three unique full baths..... the bathrooms are incorporated with pine and real green river rock from the local river beds. Bathroom #1 has a jetted jacuzzi and shower lined with river rock. It even has a built-in reading light in the rocks......read and relax in the tub. Bathroom #2 is the largest and also has a jetted jacuzzi, abundant cabinets and a unique custom redwood slab vanity. Bathroom #3, the smallest of the 3 has a custom 3 1/2ft. x 4ft.+ walk-in shower lined in river rock.
Three wood burning stoves..... throughout the house is another self-sufficient feature. One is located in the living room, and the other 2 are located in each of the separate living areas. It also has a forced air heating system.
Remember the house is designed passive solar.
Large utility room..... this large 9' x 23' +/- area can be entered from the garage or from either of the living quarters, and is loaded with lots of cabinets for pantry or storage. It als0 has washer and dryer hook ups, furnace, water heater, and water holding tank. In this area is the control center for the auxiliary back up power system.
Back up power system..... This house is designed to be completely self-contained which includes a complete power system that can power the house if needed.
The system includes a Honda propane generator in it`s own room, 2 inverters and control panel to convert power and charge a 1,000 amp battery bank. The house also has a set up for solar panels of which there is a pole already installed. This could produce all of your power.
This system has not been used for quite awhile and would need a new battery for generator start up and a minor servicing.
Security System..... house is fully wired for a security system, internet, and satellite TV (Security system is hardwired for entire house. Only needs to be hooked up to control panel.)
Large 24' x 30' +/- garage...... with built in generator room, battery room, large walk-in enclosed storage area, and a 21' built in work bench with radial arm saw. Bench has full length built in storage shelves underneath.
Storage shed..... nice looking wooden shed with cedar fenced in storage area. Closed in area also has a potting work area.
RV parking..... there is a large level parking spot for an RV. Includes water and electric hook-ups. A small septic system could easily be installed at this location.
Private outdoor shower..... You might wonder why we bother listing this feature. This is one of our favorite things to do in summer. It is so refreshing to take an outdoor shower on a hot summer day. It is total privacy, in the woods, on a mountaintop with an unbelievable view. We will really miss this special place.
