    I am very pleased to offer this truly unique, off-grid earth ship inspired, home built into the forested hillside on 8 remote acres. This warm and inviting home was built in 2021 with savings and efficiency in mind, and also offers a 10-year New Home Warranty. It is complete with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, living room, kitchen and large sunroom/dining area.

    The rear and side walls are 12 inches thick, constructed from ICF and poured concrete. The front wall is regular wood frame 2 x6 construction complete with large triple gazed windows letting in tons of natural light. The ceiling throughout is complete with tongue and groove pine over R50, blown in insulation. The home was meticulously built into the back slope. The earth against the home provides cooling in the summer and warmth in the winter. The floor throughout is polished concrete, also a feature that takes advantage of the way that the concrete absorbs the heat in the sunshine and retains the heat throughout the night.

    The front of the home faces south and is complete with garden planters running the full length of the home offering the option to grow anything you like year-round, from house plants to vegetables or even fruit trees. On the coldest day of the year, you can enjoy your morning coffee amongst the lush gardens in the brilliant sunshine, listened to the soothing indoor water feature.

    The home is heated with a small wood fireplace and propane fired in floor heating system offering all of the amenities of a serviced home with the benefits and peace of mind of living a completely off grid lifestyle with free electricity.

    If you are looking for a self-sustaining, off grid lifestyle in a very private location, this is the perfect property for you!
