Freshly painted (Sherwin Williams), move-in ready, partially off-grid 5-bedroom 3.5 bath family home has an 8-foot-deep pool with a big rock waterfall that makes the backyard feel like a tropical oasis. The yard is perfectly situated to capture a nearly constant breeze making it so comfortable on hot summer days. When the weather cools off, you’ll love warming up and relaxing your muscles in the fully insulated (energy efficient) hot tub adjacent to the pool. The backyard is surrounded by bamboo and beautiful flowering xeric native plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The backyard also features a wide-open bonfire area nestled amongst a wall of bamboo and surrounded by the most beautiful Pride of Barbados flowers that the homeowner sowed by hand. The property comes with a 9000-gallon water capture system that allowed the homeowner to lock in the water bill at a flat rate of $36 per month. The champagne color standing seam metal roof is ready for solar panels, and ensures you get tens of thousands of gallons of fresh, clean, FREE rainwater every year. For those who demand the best, there are tall ceilings throughout, but everyone is going to love the 10 Foot Ceilings in the two master suites and the entire lower level, which is just wall to wall windows. But never fear the electricity bill, because the homeowner added R30 insulation in the attic, ZIP system panels under the new Hardie siding, replaced windows on 3 sides of the house, converted most of the lights to LED, and replaced the old HVAC with a Carrier Infinity Series Heat Pump system that keeps the home dry and comfortable year-round with automated heating/cooling schedules and mobile app control. When the heat pumps were installed, new ducts were installed on the second floor as well. Please refer to the attachments in the MLS for the complete information on this amazing property and updates.
