Enjoy ultimate privacy, without being too remote, with this off-grid home. This solar-powered, eco home is situated on 15 acres, conveniently located between Nelson and Castlegar, BC, Canada. Access to the home is by a steep mountain driveway. Use your 4x4 vehicle or ATV during the summer months, and snowmobile in the winter. Once you arrive on your mountain perch, enjoy beautiful mountain and river views. Backed by crown land, and surrounded by huge acreages, this is true mountain living. There are 3 creeks, a private spring, personal septic system, and multiple outbuildings on your forested acreage.
The solar-powered home was built with the highest environmental standards, and sustainability in mind. The 5 sided design was determined by the lay of the land, and to maximize south-facing solar gain. Propane fridge, stove, hot water, and dryer allow for a modest solar system. Wood heat, septic system, and gravity water are integral parts of the sustainability of the house.
