Off-grid, timber-framed 900sf cordwood house with 18"-thick walls surrounded by turnkey farmstead for sustainable living.

Passive-solar orientation helps to make the house warm and inviting. Masonry Heater (aka Russian Fireplace) heats house with 2 cords of wood a year; there is a direct-vent propane heater for shoulder seasons. Winter hot water runs off of the wood heater; summer hot water is propane. Two bedrooms, one bathroom with shower and compost toilet, Enviroseptic graywater system. Solar voltaic electrical system runs lights, Internet/computers, DC refrigerator, DC water pump. Stainless steel Bison hand pump at sink for backup. House site is swaled and bermed for wind protection and water diversion. 120'-deep drilled well, as well as 350-gal rainwater collection system for crops and livestock.

Property of approximately ten acres includes more than five acres of pasture enclosed and sectioned by metal stock-panel fencing---perfect for rotating grazing dairy goats or sheep; also poultry and hogs. Remaining property is wooded. Outbuildings include barn with small goat-milking parlor, chicken coop, shop/garage, woodshed, hay shed, garden shed, storage shed, and outhouse. Bunkhouse is 12' x 24' with porch and is fully insulated with direct-vent propane heater, grid-tied electricity, compost toilet; would be perfect cabin for apprentices or Air BnB. Abutting neighbors have large farmland acreage. A turn-key homestead with many farm and building tools and supplies included. Numerous nearby lakes and hiking trails. Located in Unity, home to the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA/Common Ground Fair) and Unity College.
