Passive Solar Earth Sheltered Living

Imagine living partially underground yet having a home filled with sunlight — enough natural light for an artist’s studio, and enough light for an indoor sunroom/garden! Discover smart living at SUNBERM.

SUNBERM is a passive solar earth sheltered contemporary. The unusual design is extremely energy efficient taking advantage of the earth’s natural warmth that is surrounding the home. Sunberm is naturally warm in winter and cool in summer.

Engineer and Architect designed and constructed of steel, stone, concrete, and cedar, this home is built to last forever. It is environmentally friendly and low maintenance. Reduce your carbon footprint and get back to nature. 

Walls of glass oriented to the SSW take maximum advantage of the energy and light from the sun and bathe the interior in light. The rooms are large, and the concept is open and flowing.

Inside this contemporary ranch, some amenities include a huge stone, wood-burning fireplace with blower, Saltillo tiled floors, easy one-step access to all rooms on the main level, and a roomy kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances. The master bedroom is spacious enough to fit a grand piano! There is an office for working at home, a laundry/mudroom, and a storage room.

The property is totally private and features apple and pear trees, as well as blueberry bushes. Through gentle woods, a peony-lined drive leads to the home. There are extensive perennial gardens, a wisteria-covered pergola, pea gravel fire pit area, specimen trees, private hiking paths, and many eye-catching rock formations.

We are often mesmerized by the views of the gardens and distant mountains.”

There is a 48 x 30 foot outbuilding with 12 x 12 barn doors – ideal for your automobile collection, boat, RV storage or workshop. For horse enthusiasts, this property could support up to 6 horses!

Enjoy earth sheltered living in this unique home, secreted away on over 11 very private acres just five minutes from the New York state line, 60 minutes from NYC, and only five minutes from Candlewood Lake.
