The Residence | As you approach the house down the circular drive to the main entrance, you are greeted by a dwelling that is balanced within the natural setting. To the right of the home is a spring fed stream that has never run dry. The landscaped area on both sides is in balance with the dwelling and the native trees and plants. Completing the package is the one-acre market garden plot and second stream with waterfall.
The Bill Ash design is open and airy with consideration in construction to incorporate passive solar energy retention to take advantage of the seasonal elements to provide the most efficient method of cooling and heating the structure. The south facing side is all glass with full length attached deck. View the stream, native plants and forest through glass or sit on the deck and become one with nature.
The home has been updated, inside and out, during the past year. New paint and new light switches, receptacles, light fixtures and fans were installed. Kitchen, master bath and upstairs bath have been remodeled each highlighted with accent tiles.
All floors are covered in wood and ceramic tile. Easy to clean and free of toxic materials. The upstairs has two bedrooms. One is open and the other is large with spacious closets. Both overlook the market garden and the surrounding natural landscape. Mountain views appear when leaves have taken flight.
Heat can be delivered through the heat pump, wood furnace, and use of passive solar storage.
Enter the home through a small formal greeting room that invites you into a very open floor plan. The kitchen, dining room, and living room create a great room highlighted by architectural features of contemporary style.
Living Room |
The vaulted ceiling with featured skylight creates an expansive space.
A wall of glass brings in natural light and allows access to the outside deck. Tucked behind the stairwell is a cozy alcove. In keeping with the passive solar design of this home, light reflects into the space to retain heat or cool by season and optimizes the energy efficiency of temperature control in the space. A cool and warm color palette allows the home to feel in harmony with its natural surroundings. The stairs and landing leading to second level were custom built from oak trees removed from site construction.
Continuing the flow of the open floor plan, the dining area sits to the left of the great room. The space is delineated by a wood clad ceiling and beams further utilizing a natural element in the architectural design. Exit the dining room through a sliding glass door onto a covered patio, a perfect space for outdoor dining, relaxing or communing with the natural setting.
Recently updated, the kitchen continues the open concept of the home. Warm neutral colors and tiled backsplash continue the theme of incorporating natural elements in the design. The tiled backsplash reflects light into the space while the stainless steel appliances add the element of shining metal. Practical design features include ample counter space and cabinet storage. To the rear of the kitchen is a food pantry and laundry room with outdoor access to the covered carport.
