This unique, alternative Crestone home, built with thick, cozy straw bale walls & natural building materials, has been finished out with modern finishes & appliances, giving you the best of both worlds. Enter into the freshly stuccoed home through the entryway, to an inviting, open kitchen & living room with granite countertops and natural, oiled hardwood floors. The skylights, windows and natural curves of the clay walls, create a charming vibe to the property. Step out onto one of the 2 balconies & sip your coffee as you drink in the hues of the vast skies. A spiral staircase leads up to a bright, spacious room with loft bed above & windows overlooking the mountains. From the main level, descend down to a spacious bedroom that opens into a bathroom with custom tiled steam shower & laundry/utility room. Ideal for anyone crafty, there is a large workshop on the lower level that has been completely insulated & vapour-sealed from the rest of the house. Currently home to Manastone Tongue Drums, the workshop space is highly insulated & has a wood burning stove for added warmth and comfort. This space offers enormous potential for a variety of uses. The earthen plaster walls and thick straw bale insulation mean this home will require very little input to keep it comfy all year long, cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Situated in an ideal location on just over 2 acres, with room for horses and chickens, this home is just a short drive to the town of Crestone for cafes, groceries, pub, gas, hardware and more. Drink in the breathtaking, unobstructed vistas from every angle. The dark night skies are drenched with stars and the sunrise and sunset will take your breath away. Enjoy miles of trails for horse riding, hiking, biking, jeeps or ATV's just minutes from your property. The Baca community is surrounded by National Park and Wildlife Preserve creating lots of open space for exploring and outdoor activities.
