Rural Luxury! That is what you will find here in a beautiful Santa Fe built, constructed out of Rastra which provides for a near perfect energy efficient home. Similar to Arc bloc or Eblock, the stacked foam Rastra forms are a vehicle to pour concrete into for a superior structural home, finished on the outside with stucco and the inside with an Italian swirl drywall finish this home is a one of a kind in this rural setting! The main ceiling beams in the kitchen and master bedroom, are Douglas Fir, (probably from trees at least 10 feet diameter), that were underwater in the Columbia River for 80 years from a pier in Astoria Oregon. Approximately wave washed to 5''x14''. The ceiling beams in living room were custom cut to full 4'' 12'' size. Downstairs floors are Mexican Tile, and Concrete in a few places. Upstairs floors are tongue in groove wood. Real power on the property and a good pumping Well make for a very survivable situation out here among nature, the cacti and the great nothingness of the outdoors. Feed the quail and the doves, watch the coyotes and the many desert creatures; and of course the wild burrows and ranchers cows will occasionally pay you a visit. The upper master suite has a HUGE balcony for additional wintertime outside living. The star-watching from here cannot be beat and the sunsets cannot be described! The lower level has a very private patio that wraps around two sides of the house giving you a protected outside space which you will use year round. The kitchen has both electric and propane stove top burners. No built-in stove, but portable convection oven works very well. The wood burning fireplace is converted to electric log, but can easily be converted back. The attached garage has been somewhat converted to a studio and quilt workroom, but it could be converted forever to a party room, extra bedroom suite or returned to a parking space. A 20x25 Rastra shop has a guest bed & bath with covered 10x25 carport. What remains of the original house was converted to parking garages, storage, and a man-cave/workshop. Plenty of places to park in the shade, work with your hands, and store your extra items. Beauty, comfort, & function. One of a Kind!!!
