GREEN HOME FOR SALE
We’re looking for eco-friendly folks who would appreciate a truly green renovated home, solar energy, a permaculture landscape, and delicious pizzas from a cob pizza oven, among many other wonderful features. Have you been dreaming of your green and sustainable future in a beautiful forest? This home is ready to go, with forest trails, gardens, and life ready to live!
While a number of people have expressed interest in the undeveloped parcels, upon evaluation they decided that homesteading from the ground up was more than they wished to take on. Developing green property is a large undertaking and can be daunting—even for those with a passion for permaculture and natural building. Many have inquired about the house and whether it would be up for sale in future, so I’ve decided to make the house available for purchase as the next phase in this adventure.
We’ve created a dedicated website with all of the pertinent information, but here is a brief description:
Parcel #1 is two acres and includes the original homestead with the house (built in the late 1940s), grid-tied power, an abundant deep well, and all of the green building, natural building, and permaculture improvements. The house is a two-story, three-bedroom home with redwood siding, two baths, two kitchens, and a large outdoor kitchen as well.
I purchased the land in 2004 with the intention of creating a green neighborhood, or “ecovillage,” so that people could comfortably build affordable green homes in a community setting without fear of getting red-tagged or harassed by the County Building Department.
A total of ten acres has been subdivided into four parcels, each with approved septic system designs that allow you to build up to two single-family homes per parcel. Parcel #1 has an additional approved one-bedroom septic system so one could build a fantastic community house or could partner with someone who would like to split the cost of the parcel and share the existing infrastructure. (Think “Sharing Economy”!)
All the details are on the website so please visit here if you’re interested or want more information.
And please pass this along to anyone looking for a green home in a developing eco-friendly neighborhood setting!
