From the living room you will step down into the "Sunspace/Green House", a fabulous room that can be enjoyed all year long! This room faces south/southeast. The Owner chose to design the sunspace to be a natural part of their living area, with easy access and beautiful features and finishes that match the rest of the home.
The sunspace is dual purpose: Through eight windows, sun streams into the house during the winter months, warming the sunspace and the main living area. The passive solar design keeps the home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Over 50' linear feet of concrete growing beds, and five "solar water tubes", all surrounded by 12" thick adobe brick walls in the sunspace provide the "thermal mass" that is necessary to keep the sunspace at an even temperature throughout the year.
The space was designed also to function as a sunny growing space in the winter and transition seasons primarily, while shade-loving plants enjoy the summers there. The sunspace has been used mainly for growing warm weather vegetables, like tomatoes and cucumbers in the winter, and garden "starts" in the spring for later transplanting outdoors, but ornamentals will thrive here as well .
The sunspace is an enjoyable place to relax any time of year with its plants and stunning views.
Onto the bedrooms you will discover a house that was built with functionality in mind! Two master suites essentially! The office is quite private and offers custom knotty alder cabinetry with a full wall dedicated to bookcases and cabinet storage. Exposed adobe brick walls and concrete floors add up to date charm to this w
You will enjoy a two car oversized garage with built in workspace and a detached extra storage building outside.
