Welcome to Sustainable Acres, a first of itâs kind in North America, truly off-grid residential property powered by solar and hydrogen technologies. Set on just over 11 bucolic acres, this property is both farm and stewardship assessed which is transferrable to the new owners. Enter the property via the long stone driveway that passes the large pond with lighted stone waterfall and dock and continue up to wrap around the front of the completely redesigned contemporary craftsman style retreat-like home. A ground-lit paver walk leads guests past a modern bubbling fountain and onto the mahogany front porch. Enter the bright white foyer with a-frame ceiling and into the open modern layout that is the gourmet kitchen, dining and living rooms all featuring engineered wood rustic wide-plank flooring and recessed LED lighting. The dining room and living room share a dual fireplace with marble tile surround. Youâll note the living room is basked in natural light with 3 walls of windows and sliders out to the wrap around deck for amazing views. The deck runs the entire 2 sides of the home and is outfitted with stunning mahogany and marine cable railings, and offers options for outdoor dining, grilling or even a private soak in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub. Bright and white, the kitchen features quartz counters with glass tile backsplash, stainless appliances, an induction oven and a pantry with double barn doors. Past the kitchen, the main-floor primary bedroom and 2 guest rooms flank the rear of the home, each with their own well-appointed full bathrooms en suite. A maple staircase leads you down to the lower level, also floored in maple, which leads to a large family room with a third fireplace and sliders to the rear paver patio complete with lighted stone waterfall surround and river rock fire pit area for outdoor entertaining. This level also features a 4th bedroom with full bath en-suite and an office which could also be used as a 5th bedroom. A laundry room is smartly tucked behind a sliding barn door and a utility room, mudroom and access to the 3 car over-sized garage with storage complete this level. The home is efficiently appointed with high-end LED lighting, ceiling fans, all solid wood doors, double-cell window blinds and plenty of extra insulation including 5 solar powered attic fans. Thanks to the nearly 40kw solar array with 20kw of backup power and an electrolyzer to continually generate hydrogen, this home is truly off the grid and means zero cost for heating, cooling and electricity, plus youâll benefit from the remaining S-Recs agreement allowing you to generate $10K/yr in income (fluctuates based on market) from your solar production. The current homeowner generates even more revenue from the sale of wood and eggs of nearly 15K per year (note the âchicken villageâ complete with new coups, fencing and roaming area suitable for up to 110 chickens). The home was completely renovated top to bottom in 2015 including windows, hardy board siding, metal and asphalt roofs, mechanicals, appliances, flooring, septic, 2 hot water heaters, platinum series heat pump, whole home filtration system and 2 new wells (1 for irrigating the property). Still not sold? Wait until you hear whatâs included! All appliances, window coverings, furnishings, hyperbaric chamber with oxygen concentrator for 100% pure oxygen, the hydrogen-powered vehicle (Toyota Mirai), Kubota utility vehicle with plow, 3 small sheds, chicken coups and chickens and all tools and instruments currently used to maintain the property including a top notch paddle board for the pond and multiple yrs worth of filters for all systems ( $8K). Sustainable Acres truly is one of a kind, setting a course for the future of applied residential renewable energy and sustainable living. This is your opportunity to simply move right in and forge its next chapter!
