June 07, 2024

nside, the modest footprint feels expansive thanks to soaring cathedral ceilings and mountain views in every direction.

A thoughtful floor plan invites you to spread out and stay a while; imagine yourself at game night around the fireplace, bird-watching at the picture window, preparing a feast in the spacious kitchen, or curling up for a catnap in one of the generously-sized bedrooms.

Electricity bills are yet another thing you won’t need to worry about while enjoying your oasis, thanks to the 8.4 kW OWNED solar system grandfathered into NEM 2.0.
