A walkway will lead you into a charming fenced front yard featuring an array of native perennials and fruit trees. This one of a kind custom passive solar, adobe home designed by architect Jay Lynch, features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a laundry room and a spacious, sunny living/dining area on the main floor. Views abound from the custom windows. In the center of the kiva-style living area, you will find a custom Russian fireplace that invites you to cozy up during winter months or read a good book in the summer, with the cool evening breeze coming through the windows. According to an article written about the house, 'Large southeast-facing windows in the living area gather direct gain from the sun, which helps to charge a 10-inch-thick radiant slab creating passive heat to assist with wood or electric heat.' Start your morning sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee or tea, take a soak in the hot tub and take in the magical views of the La Plata Peaks to the north. The home has in-floor heating on the main living space level and features New Mexico Saltillo tile flooring and unique style and finishes throughout that complete the eclectic overall feel of the home and the kitchen features a farmhouse sink, soapstone countertops and a pantry. Downstairs is a large bonus space for an extra living area, home office, studio space, guest bedroom and, with direct access to the outside, offers great flexibility. All materials used to build this home are eco-friendly and non-synthetic as it was a priority to the owners to have a chemical free, healthy home! The radiant sunlight paired with indoor planter features are the perfect setting for succulents, flowers, some veggies, or anything else you might desire to grow indoors. This property also features a large, detached workshop/barn for all of your Colorado toy storage needs. Walk down the small hill to find the barn space located below the shop. It is the prefect space for chickens or farm critters. Don't miss out on this detailed, artistic dream home!
