Location, location, location-serene 4.62-acre lot in the good water zone of Castle Valley is the setting for this modified post and beam home with strawbale insulation and gracefully curved design elements. Passive solar home with wood stove backup heat is all electric and features 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, high arching reed covered ceilings and large triple paned windows offering expansive national park quality views to the La Sals, Porcupine Rim, Castleton Tower and Parriott Mesa. The light and bright kitchen includes custom pecky cypress and knotty hickory kitchen cabinets, and reclaimed Claro black walnut countertops, bar, shelves, and entry doors. These highlight the new 36"- 5 burner Verona electric stove and oven along with the 36" porcelain farm sink that accommodates large pots and pans. Cypress, redwood, black walnut, juniper, and cherry finishes are used throughout the house for stunning doors, bookshelves, trim and windowsills. Thoughtfully designed with a programmable whole house air exchange system, ground mounted evaporative cooler, LED recessed lighting, and lighted ceiling fans in each bedroom and the open kitchen/dining/living area. The radiant floor heated bathroom showcases a 6' soaking tub in a travertine grotto and a separate custom tiled shower with seat and hand shower. Flagstone patio just off the kitchen is perfect for outdoor dining, star gazing, or entertaining. Other outdoor living amenities include a custom tiled outdoor solar shower and a solar heated hot tub with supplemental wood boiler. The approximately 1200 square foot passive and active solar hot water heated greenhouse, shop and studio has a 240-volt circuit for an electric car charger with inside and outside receptacles for portable chargers. The greenhouse was designed to capture more energy than it uses, storing the excess energy in a thermal mass and then redistributing it to any of 4 heating zones, defaulting to the hot tub. The heated growing table in the greenhouse can supply year-round greens, as well as start seedlings. This property includes excellent water rights. The mature orchard contains apples, apricots, sweet and tart cherries, peaches, pears, plums, nectarines, almonds, walnuts, and black walnut surrounding the house and buildings. The grape arbor supports productive Zinfandel (12-year-old vines), Himrod, Red Flame, Thompson's Seedless and Muscat of Alexandria varieties for fresh eating, drying and winemaking. The 7,000 sq. ft organic garden space has produced an abundant harvest. Ample storage space is available in the garden shed, native rock storage building built to function as a wine/root cellar, and mushroom growing structure. An additional 40' shipping container is available for a tractor, equipment, toys, materials, etc. The property includes a 3.5-Kilowatt grid-tied solar panel array that produces enough electricity to recently keep the bill to an average of around $50 per month which includes charging an electric car. Fiber optic is available at the property boundary along the street. Square footage figures are provided as a courtesy estimate only and were obtained from county records.
