5 acres House with Solar in Friendship NY 8009 County Road 1

If you dream of living in a peaceful country setting, free from high-energy bills without giving up any of the conveniences of a modern home, then this one-of-a-kind custom built home is for you! 

Sitting on 5 acres of mixed hardwoods and tall pines, this home is as environmentally friendly as it is beautiful.  This house was designed for functionality, purpose, sustainability, and can be completely off grid.  It has 1,668 sq ft of open space, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and a full basement.  The house is constructed of the highest quality materials, with careful attention to design.  The 5.4 Kw solar array can power the entire house, or with the flip of a switch it can be connected to the electric grid.

The first floor has an open floor plan with a beautiful bright eat-in kitchen with attractive counter tops, and a large walk-in pantry with plenty of shelving and extra counter space.  Eat at the breakfast bar or choose to dine in the dining area.  Located in the center of the room is a large, brick, super-efficient masonry fireplace that produces long-lasting, radiating, comfortable warmth.  It uses very little wood. Two armfuls of wood will heat the entire living space during the coldest of days, saving money, work and time.  It even has a baker’s oven built in, perfect for baking bread.  In the winter, several south-facing windows not only allow abundant daylight, but also warm the slate floor and concrete slab underneath, providing free, even warmth.  PEX tubing has been installed in the concrete slab, making the addition of radiant floor heating an easy option. The first floor bedroom is currently used as an office with high speed internet, a perfect work-from-home setting. Travel up the stairs to find two additional large, inviting, bright and airy bedrooms with plenty of natural lighting, hardwood floors, and big closets.  The en suite is fully tiled and has a walk-in tiled shower.  The insulated, concrete finished basement is where you will find all of the utilities and plenty of storage space.  The utility room houses the components for the solar energy system and its batteries, as well as a Rain Soft water purifier and water softener system.  Store fresh produce all year long with the one of a kind root cellar, which provides cool storage for produce in the summer and long term storage in the winter.  Upon exiting the basement, you will find an attached south facing greenhouse, a fabulous addition to self-reliant living where you can grow fresh produce all year long or open a door to let in the heat from the sun.  On the front of the house you will find a full length covered porch, great for entertaining or just relaxing in the shade.

This property is a garden lovers delight, complete with 45 raised beds throughout the property.  Extend your growing season by using the hoop house that covers some of the raised beds.  There are timber trails around the property leading you to a pond, open space and more raised beds and various fruit trees.  Watering your gardens are no problem with the rain water collection barrels and water pumped from the pond.

Check out the gorgeous timber framed barn that has plenty of space for two cars and garden tools.  Upstairs there is a finished, private space that has potential to become a studio apartment or mother-in-law suite.  At the back of the barn is a unique brick built pizza oven and barbecue pit, perfect for outdoor entertaining.   Also on site is an outbuilding used to house chickens, if you chose.

Don’t miss out on this great unique opportunity, this house is built to last.   Secluded country living yet only 5 miles to I 86.
