If you crave lots of natural light and a spectacular view, this home is for you.

This 1800 square foot stucco home (plus unfinished basement) was built in 1974 and sits on a 1.5 acre leased lot which is part of Greening Life Community Farm.  The house is a four-level split-level earth-sheltered concrete block and stucco construction dwelling with three bedrooms, two-bath rooms, laundry area, living/dining room, office/family room, and huge kitchen for the chef in the family. It features a wrap-around porch with deck on the second level, and a patio at the first level.  The principal heat source is an oil forced air system. It also features a wood stove in the living room with a blower system that distributes heat to the mid-level –  plus it also is fitted for a wood stove on the lower level.  The lower-level living area also is designed for possible use as an “in-law’s apartment.”

The front (south) face of the home features twelve 7-foot by 3-foot 9-inch triple-pane windows, and is designed and situated for solar energy adaptation. Relatively new upgrades include a deck, roof, furnace, water heater, front windows, carpeting and upgraded septic system.

The large kitchen is nearly 16 feet by 15 feet in size; and the spacious living room is 25 feet by 15 feet. A 15-foot by 17-foot master bedroom adjoins the lower-level office/family room.

This country home is snuggled by mature trees on approximately one acre of lawn which includes peach and cherry trees – and a spectacular flowering mimosa tree which is home to hummingbirds.

The house does need some tender loving cosmetic improvements on the interior.  But if you are handy with tools, it is a great investment.

Greening Life Community (GLC) is an eight-household intentional membership community.  GLC was founded in 1972 to foster mutual support and cooperation for a group of persons beyond the primary family. Residents have access to GLC’s 100+ acres of wooded and agricultural areas for hiking and other light-on-the-land activities.

Residents also may have use of the community pool, playground, and picnic area, and may obtain a plot in the community garden.

Reverence for, and protection of, the natural environment is an important community focus.  The vision and mission of the community are constantly evolving, and each new   member has the opportunity to add his or her own vision to the mix.
