Perched up high on the sunny side of the mountain with spectacular views across the Tienditas Valley to the Osha Pass, this off-grid, passive, solar-powered home is a fantastic retreat from today’s fast-paced world. Constructed of pumice-crete, this beautiful energy-efficient home sits on four acres of forested land. It features insulated in-floor radiant heat located in a sand base with red brick floors in the main house and concrete floors in the entry and utility rooms. The home’s interior has hand plastered interior walls, a custom antler chandelier, handmade wall sconces, tongue and groove ceilings, and a free-standing wood burning stove. The well-appointed kitchen with a Viking stove and refrigerator is perfect for the home chef. Enjoy the views and entertain guests on the large outdoor patio. The 1,000-watt solar system consists of six panels and sixteen batteries replaced in October 2018; gas-powered backup generator included. Other features include solar tubes in the kitchen and bathroom, a metal roof, an attached single stall carport, an outdoor adobe oven, and a separate storage building. The road is subject to seasonal conditions and normal wear and tear, and four-wheel drive is required in winter. Tract A-D are legally subdivided lots that could resell. The approximate elevation of the property is 8,850 ft. CenturyLink landline is available onsite, which can provide onsite internet and cell service.
