Property Description

Adorable little strawbale for sale in the Two Peaks community. The location in Two Peaks can’t be beat. It is the only house down a pretty decent side road. Quiet, no neighbors. I get there 95% of the time in an old Geo Prizm, but sometimes need 4wd. The house has been lovingly built, and has beautiful finishing touches. It is a small (10×12) strawbale with a lofted bedroom upstairs. The upstairs is almost a full story, 6 feet high at the peak of the roof. The bedroom features a 3×6 picture window that faces east to the most amazing view of the Sangre de Cristos. There is another window to the west, so a cross breeze on those hot summer nights cools the place for perfect sleeping temperatures. There are built in bookshelves on either side of the east window, and both windows have curtains to block the hot summer sun. Downstairs is lime plastered, with french doors that face east to the mountains, and a wall of windows that face south for solar gain. The downstairs also has curtains over the windows to block the hot summer sun. One of the nicest touches is the newly finished mosaic flagstone floor! No indoor bathroom, but there is a composting toilet outside and 4 bin composting system for veggies and the outhouse. There is also an outdoor shower house that works great in the summer!

The house has been a work in progress and still is! The current price is $17K, but as I keep working on it, the price will go up. I am happy to work with the right buyer on how many improvements are done before they take ownership. I am currently working on an addition on the east side to enclose the outdoor kitchen. the roof is on, and I’m moving onto walls next! There is a 575 gallon in ground cistern on the east side of the building. I have a green house addition planned on the south side…yea fresh veggies all winter long. There is currently a stack of windows for use in the greenhouse, as well as a very nice set of exterior french doors.

I have enjoyed every moment of builidng and living in this home. But now it is time for me to follow my next dream, and to do that I must move on from this home. I know this house is the perfect match for someone who enjoys peace and quiet, watching the most amazing sunsets, and has an adventurous spirit!
