PRIVATE PASSIVE SOLAR, EARTH SHELTERED HOME ON 14.5 ACS: Enjoy sustainable housing with all the luxuries of home! The top level of this home includes a cooks kitchen with plenty of storage, a large, multi-windowed living room and dining room from which to enjoy the bucolic views and a master bedroom suite with custom bath as well as a large walk-in closet. The cleverly engineered greenhouse addition offers useful expansion space in the winter, and opens on to a deck which overlooks the private garden area and in-ground pool. You'll especially enjoy the hot tub in the winter! The downstairs level has extensive windows above ground in every room, but is earth-sheltered and very economical to temperature maintain, consists of one bedroom suite with a separate sitting room, another bedroom, an office, a second full bath, and the utility room also with washer and dryer. There is plenty of storage, and a two car garage attached to the house provides convenience in nasty weather. In addition, there is a 30'x50' two story secondary structure which had been used to house an RV, but it is large and high ceilinged and could have many uses. The back of this building includes two enclosed studio or workshop spaces. The property itself is a gem, it is stone walled on the borders and lined with trees for privacy, with mostly rolling meadows, maybe 25% in woods. Another bonus--a nice sugarbush if you would like to tap your own maple trees and produce some maple syrup.
