Property Description

This is a one of a kind artistic contemporary "straw-bale" home designed by local architects Hubbell & Hubbel. As you walk through the front door there is an immediate feeling of calm & well being. The lower ceiling height at the entryway provides a coziness & warmth as you move into the great room the ceiling height increases as it leads you to the large sliding doors to the pool deck & garden. This creates a perfect harmony bringing nature into the house making it a part of the total environment.

Designed in a contemporary Southwest style, includes an arbored entry courtyard, detached garage, passively heating black-bottom pool & cabana. Named Sustainable Home of the Year by San Diego Home & Garden Magazine in February, 2002 The unique build and design lends to reducing heating and cooling needs. Super-insulated straw bale walls make the building act like a thermos that retains heat in the winter and cool air in the summer. Title 24 energy calculations show that the house exceeds standard compliance by 31.2%. Solar hot water panels help heat water for the black-bottom swimming pool with integrated mosaic tile insert. High ceilings and operable transom windows allow heat to rise above the living space and be drawn out through natural convection. Larger roof overhangs on the south-facing walls minimize solar gain during summer and allow for passive solar heat gain in winter. Slate flooring over concrete slab and plaster walls provides additional thermal mass during cool winter months. R-40 blown-in cellulose insulation in the ceiling is an environmentally sound material. A portion of the building’s north edge is embedded into the hillside to take advantage of thermal storage in the earth’s crust. Native landscaping requires minimal water and low maintenance.
