Property Description

The house at 1250 Reser Rd doubles as an historical collage of the inland northwest, constructed from reclaimed materials as diverse as railroad bridge trestles, crane rails, gorgeous wooden beams from an old mill, steel light posts from the original McNary Dam, and timbers from barns and homesteads across the region. Salvaged metal pieces were sandblasted, wire-wheeled, heated and waxed to their current shine, and timbers were sanded and oiled back to life with multiple coats of linseed and tung oil. Counter tops were made from nearby columnar basalt flows, and the cabinetry is hand-crafted from wind-fallen locust trees.

What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Earth-bermed, 10" thick walls and a green roof buffer the outside temperature, and the home is heated and cooled by a geothermal ground loop tempering a polished radiant concrete slab. Completely electric, the home is built ready to accept a grid-tied PV solar array, and twenty motorized windows work in conjunction with an array of paddle fans to provide natural air circulation. An upper clerestory facilitates air flow and allows daylight to shine into all rooms of the home, even in winter.

Neighborhood Description

Located near the edge of Walla Walla’s city limits, you will enjoy a wonderful rural feel, with the convenience of only being 4 miles from the heart of downtown.
