Ever wanted to live off the grid in a log home, but were hesitant because of no real backup?
Here is your chance. This log home offers the best of both worlds. It has both solar and wind generators, with a huge battery storage and capacity. It ALSO is hooked to the electrical grid for those times when an extra boost is necessary. Or, you can hook up your own generator and never use a penny of grid electricity.
It offers approximately 1500 sq ft of space on the top floor, and about 900 in the walk out basement, which also contains a two car garage. The basement stays in the low sixties all summer no matter what the temperature.
Some of the features are: three bedrooms, two full baths, two efficient wood burning stoves, formal dining space, Daikin heat pump heat and a/c both upstairs and down, on demand water heater, new refrigerator, gas stove, new carpet upstairs, and plenty of extra storage spaces. Since September 2015, the house has used forty gallons of propane total. It also has a 28x32 shop with two stalls and a tack room built in, but still room for your vehicle.
Did we mention the views and privacy? The view of Smith Valley and the lake are unparalleled. At the same time, it is located three miles up a private road, with only one home beyond it that is regularly lived in. The road dead ends just a bit further, so there is NO traffic. Going down, it's less than twenty minutes to town.
Have horses? Most of the property is fenced, so they run freely, but have a nice corral and an old fashioned pole-built round pen. There are too many miles of riding trails to count, and it's truly riding in the forest.
