Ready To Go Green?
The link between green properties, cost savings, and healthy living is getting attention. No surprise there.
As the green building movement gains momentum, so does the consumer demand for greener properties. It’s easy to understand why sustainable properties are the future of the real estate industry.
According to the U.S. Green Building Council, “Generally, green homes are healthier, more comfortable, more durable, and more energy efficient and have a much smaller environmental footprint than conventional homes.”
So the truth is….. Why wait? Here’s a property that can help you make the leap into better living without all the work of building from the ground up.
Besides the enchanting name of Cougar Canyon, this property is a GREEN BUILT ADOBE house and guest house with environmentally approved building materials including mud and bamboo floors, plaster walls, and styrofoam insulation. Adobe construction is a New Mexico time honored building tradition. Adobe construction gives you the feeling that you are being held by the earth.
The passive solar gain from south facing windows brings warmth and sunlight to the living spaces. Set on five tree-covered acres, the property adjoins the Eldorado Wilderness. When entering the property, along a tree lined drive, you feel as if you have arrived at a private and true Santa Fe sanctuary created specifically for you.
The open space, one bedroom guest house is set off from the main house giving both structures complete privacy. The holistically designed and hand-crafted homes have non-toxic finishes making them a healthy living environment with character and charm. The main house has a large kitchen and sitting area that is spacious, but at the same time cozy and inviting. The separate living room has soaring ceilings and is filled with light. The upstairs master bedroom and bath are a world of their own.
When it comes to your home, being innovative doesn’t have to mean compromise, it can be defined as going green with ease. This home offers that opportunity and so much more!
