Description

Here's a home that nearly heats itself. This purpose built passive solar heated house has incredibly low utility bills. The built-in greenhouse provides both a beautiful living space open to the majestic mountain views and a reliable heat source proven through each of its 33 winters. Plus, the soaring two story greenhouse provides a private indoor grow space for thriving leafy plants. A livable open floor-plan provides easy family living along with the privacy of three bedrooms, three bathrooms plus a private office. Two master suites allow an inviting guest space or the opportunity for multi-generational living. Multi-level exterior decks plus an interior deck on the second story of the greenhouse provide ample space for entertaining or quiet meditation in the beautiful mountain surroundings. An attached two car garage provides direct access to the kitchen. Because of its low utility bills, this passive solar house will free you from having to decide between a cold house or high heating bills. No noisy, dusty furnace to dry out your sinuses, skin and eyes. Quiet heat with the reliability of Colorado's 300 plus days of annual sunshine. With a wood stove and electric baseboard to get you through the occasional multi day cloudy stretch, you'll never be cold at home again. Highly insulated with R40 ceiling and R20 wall rating (MOL). Window quilts on the greenhouse glass keeps the heat in at night. A private well and septic system provides additional independence. This house is in the lower elevations of Crystal Park just minutes from downtown Manitou Springs. A unique combination of private mountain living with close, quick access to Manitou and Colorado Springs. Private gated community with community pool, clubhouse, lake, hiking and biking trails.
