Description

A true masterpiece - the latest from KC Natural homes employs natural building materials and techniques for a healthy, natural home that is designed and built to last for centuries. A strong mortise-and-tenon timber frame is encased in thick clay-straw walls which offer incredible insulation value as well as being breathable. The natural properties of clay allow it to absorb and then release moisture, depending on the ambient humidity both inside and outside the home. The result is a healthy environment with just the right amount of humidity. All this without harmful plastics, VOCs, or latex paint. This home is suitable for those with environmental sensitivities, for whom a conventionally-built residence would not be an option - and for those who choose to simplify and purify their lives by going "back to the basics" but want modern conveniences and luxury too. The home uses passive solar energy features too - carefully planned siting and large roof overhangs combined with cross-ventilation in every room keep this home comfortable in all seasons. When the rainy season comes, you'll appreciate the lifetime-lasting metal roof, specifically chosen so it won't leach harmful chemicals into the storm runoff. This fall and winter, you'll enjoy the in-floor radiant hot water heating system and the custom, hand-built thermal mass wood stove and oven. This time-tested design is meant to hold the heat from a quick, hot fire for many hours after it has gone out, providing a clean, consistent heat source that is sure to warm this open-plan home. The impressive breezeway entrance joins the 2-car garage to the home, and the solid wood entry door opens into an inviting foyer, through to the mandala skylit great room. A wall of windows overlooks the three acres that you can develop to your liking (horses? hobby farm?). The impressive kitchen is finished in granite and stainless steel, and features solid wood cabinetry - you can feel the quality craftsmanship. The kitchen overlooks the dining room, with its vaulted ceiling and French doors on to the interlocking brick patio. The master bedroom is a luxurious retreat from the noise of the day - it too has a vaulted ceiling and French doors to the patio. A private ensuite bathroom has a separate tub and shower, soft, spa-like lighting, and more granite and solid wood surfaces. A special feature of a healthy home, the bedside power disconnect switch, which cuts electrical power to the room, offering electromagnetically sensitive home owners a true sanctuary. The other two bedrooms are perfectly proportioned and a lovely main bath rounds out this amazing, and truly unique offering. Located just a few kilometres from the centre of Sooke, this one of a kind masterpiece awaits your inspection.
