This beautiful, meticulously maintained, straw-bale Hesperus home is ready for its new family. This home is Colorado country living at its finest. Stunning 360 degree 50 mile vistas of La Plata, Black Ridge, and Sleeping Ute mountains. Property is well positioned for exploring the Southwest; from slick rock canyons, through high desert, to alpine tundra. When entering the foyer, you are presented with a beautiful open floor plan, with the dining room in front of you which extends into the living room, kitchen, and patio. The living room is anchored by a kiva inspired fireplace, with a reading nook, and extends thru double doors onto the sheltered outdoor patio with a sitting view of La Plata Range. The large open kitchen has Corian counters, Boos block island, Viking range and exhaust hood. Just off the kitchen is a large pantry and mud room that leads to the oversized three car garage with sturdy built-in cabinets, wall, and ceiling shelving. On the east end of the home sits the three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The oversized master bedroom has a well-lit walk-in closet, on-suite bathroom, a zero clearance shower, and a windowed door that leads into the front garden. Home has securable dog and cat doors. Every aspect of this custom built home is easily accessible and energy efficient. When driving up the lane you will notice the solar hot water panels and tracker array. The hot water panels supplement the water heater and in-floor radiant heat. The 2.8 Kw trackable array tied to the grid provides plenty of electricity. The home has a Rumford fireplace embedded in heat retaining adobe brick. During summer, the home is constructed to be shaded so it stays cool in the day, whereas open windows in the evening bring in fresh cool air from the mountains. During winter, the thick straw bale walls, passive solar gain, in-floor radiant heat, and fireplace provide warmth and coziness. The well provides a reliable self-sufficient source of domestic water and garden irrigation. Sellers have purchased a La Plata West Water Authority water tap. The deer fenced garden area used to be the original home site, and as such has available electric, water, and septic connection. In the garden is a separate section with irrigated raised beds. The chicken coop has electricity; keep it as a coop, turn it into a storage shed, or a man cave. Just south of the enclosed area, are five frost-proof yard hydrants with free standing electrical breaker box. Bring your livestock and turn it in to a hobby farm. The vast majority of the property is invisibly fenced to let your pets free, but keep from straying. There are endless opportunities on the 28 irrigated acres.
