This passive solar envelope home creates its own heat and grid tied solar panels (with battery back-up) create its electricity (but the home is fully hooked up to public utilities too). With three levels of living space, including three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, this truly unique Contemporary home also boasts organic gardens, and a spectacular view towards Crotched Mountain. You really have to see this special home to grasp the concept; the first floor has wood floors, an eat-in kitchen, and a living room with a woodstove. The second floor has a bedroom, a full bath, an office and two roof decks. The third floor has two more bedrooms and a full bath. There is also a two-car garage with storage above, and a wood/garden shed. Grow flowers or herbs all year long in the solarium, and enjoy the wildlife that wanders the yard, and harvest your own wood from the 14.61 acre lot. Don't let this opportunity to live very efficiently and responsibly pass you by!
