Come home to your own wooded retreat! This home was custom designed by post and beam architect David Howard.
The home has all open beams, covered with pine tongue and groove. The walls are built with a hybrid SIP system(Structural Insulated Panel) which results in an extremely energy efficient home. The home was also sited to take advantage of passive solar gain in the winter and passive cooling in the summer.
The home is on 1.78 beautiful wooded park like acres on a hard surface road a short 10-20 minute drive to Cedar Falls/ Waterloo/ Janesville/ Denver/ Waverly. The yard has been beautifully landscaped with a pond, flower beds, fire pit, patio, rock paths, and raised garden beds.
The house consists of 4-5 bedrooms, and 2.75 baths.
As you enter the home you are welcomed by a vaulted ceiling foyer(13x16). To your right is an office/possible 5th bedroom (13x16), also with vaulted ceiling. To your left is a 3/4 bath (6x10) with shower, and laundry.
As you go forward you will enter the kitchen/dining area(20x16 +/-). There is a wall of windows wrapping around the kitchen allowing views of the patio, pond, and walking paths. There is also an energy-efficient wood stove (England Stove Works) in the kitchen area for you to warm up to on a cold winter evening.
To your right is a cozy living room (10x16 +/-) with open beams and pine tongue and groove walls and ceiling.
Upstairs you will find 2 bedrooms and a bath. Both of the bedrooms have vaulted ceilings with ceiling fans. The bedroom to your right (10x16 +/-)has access to a loft area as well. The bedroom on your left (13x16 +/-) has 2 (3') closets and a window seat. The bathroom has double pedestal sinks, a clawfoot tub, and seperate shower.
As you go down the stairs to the lower level there is a large living area (16x20 +/-) with 9' ceilings. To your left is a bedroom (10x16 +/-) with a dressing area (10x5). The bathroom (7x10 +/-) has a vessel sink, and clawfoot tub with shower. The other bedroom is 10x13 +/-) with a dropped ceiling.
The home is heated with an extremely efficient Rinnai direct vent furnace. It also has an England Stove Works wood stove. We primarily used the wood stove to heat our home, with using around 3 cords of wood a year. In the basement there is also in floor heat. (1 zone, closed system)
