Property Description

This property is a unique home and sanctuary, located near La Veta Colorado, designed for peaceful seclusion and natural living. Created from local earth, wood and stone, integrated with the surrounding environment. The curvi-linear structure, built to the very highest quality levels available, has an open floor plan to allow the flow of energy around the different emotional zones. A series of nested cylinders with curved windows and doors allows a stream of light to flow through the home and create a diverse and dramatic panoramic view. The circular formation represents unity and wholeness. The home was designed using natural building materials incorporating many green design features, including compressed earth bricks, 56 native sandstone rocks, natural soy based foam insulation and plaster, sustainably harvested wooden ceilings, etc. It incorporates innovative and modern technologies such as an in-floor rill, electro thermal in-floor heating, light differentiated glass windows and a drip system garden. Natural crystals throughout the house enhance the positive energy. The decks yield panoramic mountain and dike views, and the 48 acre parcel hosts an abundance of wildlife, including bobcats, elk and deer.
