Overview

Very private, custom passive solar adobe home with no heating or cooling bills. Built utilizing the area’s climate and the site’s micro-climate to achieve the goal of near independence for heating and cooling. In short, the sun’s heat comes in the south windows in the winter, heats both levels of the house and is then pulled down into the floor of the lower level, it circulates through a labyrinth of concrete blocks under the floor, exits two vents and finds its way back upstairs to be naturally reheated, thus completing the cycle. There is back-up heating by plugging in electric baseboard heaters or using the wood stoves but the home has only fallen to 60 degrees once in the last several years, according to the current owners. Gorgeous top of the world views of the city lights and the Continental Divide. Located 1.3 miles off Hwy 285 and Parmalee Gulch road and backing to 2130 acres of Mt Falcon open space. Has both city and well water. Gated community of 3 homes.
