1988 Adobe Country Home For Sale W/Garage And Shed on 11 Acres Colorado $690,000
Imagine a home reflecting the style of the adobe pueblos of Taos and the haciendas of the southwest. This unique home is situated on 10+ beautiful and peaceful acres in Franktown. This sustainably constructed home was built from local, natural materials including custom doors from Placitas, NM, flagstone from Lyons, pine planking out of Sedalia and beams from Poncha Springs resulting in a home that is harmonious with the area and evokes the style of upscale Southwestern living.
The natural energy efficiency of adobe construction is enhanced by south facing solar windows, insulating shutters. The upper clerestory windows facilitate ventilation as well as adding natural light to the living area. Heating is facilitated by the fireplace with an enhanced smoke path to boost energy efficiency of this net-zero carbon heating option. Further upgrades of electric baseboard heat powered by solar panels have reduced wood consumption as well as reduced the CO2 footprint of the home. As added insurance against cold weather, or for extended time away, additional baseboard heat is connected to the regular electrical service.
As you approach this beautiful home the flagstone patio provides ample outdoor living space. Upon entry into the dramatic open floor plan, the natural light accentuates the great room living area, perfect for entertaining or comfortable living. The kitchen allows easy access to the great room and complements the Pueblo style. As you proceed into the spacious living room, flooded by natural light and showing the same beam ceiling architectural features, it is apparent that there is plenty of useable living area. The primary bedroom with ensuite fireplace connects directly to the bathroom and the guest bedroom provide space for the occasional overnight guest. Private and quiet, but still close enough to civilization. Whether your passion is horses, chickens, or just a quiet pasture, you can find it here.
