This passive solar envelope home on 5 wooded acres embodies the green movement. The woods and fruit trees attract birds and wildlife. It’s like having your own private park.

From the moment you enter the 2-story atrium you’ll appreciate the unique features of the home. The kitchen has open shelving, oak floors and a granite countertop. The living room/dining room has newer carpeting. There’s a nook off of the living room that has many possible uses including office, sewing room or craft room. Laundry room with newer washer and dryer is on the first floor.

The three bedrooms upstairs all have sliding glass doors that open to a balcony that runs the length of the atrium. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, the bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and a bidet. The house faces south, so the huge windows and skylights in the atrium make the most of the sun. The entire second floor has newer bamboo flooring, the ultimate in sustainability.

In addition to all of this there are two storage sheds, an above ground pool and an outbuilding that was converted into an office, complete with telephone and high speed internet access.
