Drive thru the Arizona style gates... travel the winding driveway of this totally secluded 30 acre property and you’ll think you’ve driven across the border into New Mexico.... as you come to the end of the driveway you are presented with an authentic reproduction of a Sante Fe southwest adobe home and guest casita... but this amazing adobe inspired mainhouse and detached casita with garage and guest suite is not built out of mud and clay, the mainhouse is built using Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) technology with amazing R values and uses a geothermal heating system with air exchanger. The home was built within 1 degree of true south and the angle of the sun was calculated with a transit to assist with cooling in the summer and heating in the winter. An custom truss system was engineered to overhang the south patios. Throughout the summer, the sun will never to enter directly into the rooms helping to keep things cool, however in the winter the sun streams in and warms the floors and concrete slab which has an enormous thermal mass to help warm the home! The home has decorative hand carved Mexican doors and hand crafted windows and shutters. Beautiful patios and entertainment areas surround this southwest home. The second floor of the casita has a large room ideal for a gym or home office set up and the covered decks on each side affords great views overlooking Kamloops Lake and hills surrounding this private Villa de Sol. Great golfing at the Tobian resort just down the road. Adjoining 30 acres of hayfield could be available for lease for extra privacy.
