Green-Roof Ready, Underground Home – Bring Horses

Extremely rare, and virtually indestructible this energy-efficient, poured-concrete and steel 3 bedroom, 2 bath underground home is truly unique. 

underground home at 6 stonegate tr, leicester ncThe initial cost of construction causes few of these homes to be built, but the cost savings in heating and cooling is impressive. Positioned to draw in the sun’s warmth and light from sunrise to sunset there are oversized windows across the front. A huge sun tunnel opens to a “green roof” overhead where you can plant a large vegetable or flower garden! Inside the rooms are large with a more open-concept design. The kitchen is eclectic with little-used appliances and Corian countertops. When needed the current owner augments the solar heat by using the woodstove at an amazingly low cost of about $200 annually for the wood! Serving many purposes, this very private setting is magical. On 9.6 acres, the property is set up for horses. There’s a 55’ x 118’ riding arena, a barn with 4-5 stalls each with turn-out paddock. A separate hay room stores 300 bales. Lush pastures are cross-fenced into 4 large fields.  Turkey Creek flows at the base of the property, and there’s a small spring-fed pond.  Oh yes, bring the dogs, as there’s access to a large fenced pet area right from the garage. You’ll find this Special “Find…” just 20 minutes NW of Asheville NC.
As the cost of living increases, people are rethinking the way they live. Many people are turning to an energy efficient lifestyle. Not only is green living economically savvy but also environmentally friendly. Underground homes are becoming a much more popular choice to those who are attracted to sustainable living. It’s truly a unique and exciting way of life!
