Are you looking for a house that makes it possible to live off-grid? The owners of this Adobe-style (bamboo and earth) house make it possible for you to move right in, hustle-free. Solar panels guarantee hot water in the main house and the larger of two cabins. ICE electricity is connected for other electrical appliances. Putting in your own solar panels and batteries for electricity will make sure you will be 100 % off-grid.
The clean water comes from two large water wells put into place by the community. A water spring close to the property allows for fresh, clean, untouched water which is being used in the green house and for general irrigation.
You will not feel it, but this home is located in a gated community. The community is some 150 acres (60 hectares) in size, with lots of forested areas and situated in the middle of what is called “the best climate in the world”, Atenas, Pura Vida.
