Just footsteps from the national forest, this beautifully-designed home awaits the the mountain loving outdoorsman. Perched on a south facing slope, this passive solar adobe brick home is designed to capture the warmth of the sun during the day and emit it into the home at night. In the summer months, the bricks keep the interior cool and comfortable. Giant windows to the east and south boast unblockable views of the San Juan Mountains. Pagosa Peak is featured large and majestic to the east, while Square top dominates the south and Broken Off to the southwest. An ancient glacial draw to the east dropped loads of loam on this land, making it fertile for gardeners. Native vegetation includes chokecherries, service berries, mountain lupine, flax, wild irises, Oregon grape, osha, mountain juniper, aspen, and hawthorne. Natural materials were used throughout the home in construction, including ponderosa pine log framing, tongue and groove aspen ceilings, and reclaimed doug fir beams throughout the living, kitchen, and dining area. A heated basement boasts a steam shower and seperate entrance for guests or a large family. Line of sight to the Skywerx tower allows for fast internet for working at home. Community well is an excellent quality artesian well. Mountain bike, hike, cross country ski, snowshoe from your front door.
