This property is the perfect example of a green building horse property. Betty is very familiar with green building and knows architects that can green build. For more information about green building see Betty’s website TexasOrganicHome.com
This 2-story, 3,928 square foot home was built in 2011 so it still looks “like new”. Home includes 5 acres, but more are available. This large home has 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and a 3-car garage. There is good soil and native grasses for horses. The land is flat with a great mixture of tree shaded and open land. There are beautiful pine trees as well as other species of trees and shrubs. Located just east of Austin Texas and very close to Elgin, Texas, you are out in the country but not too far from services, stores and entertainment. What I like about the land east of Austin is its soil depth and therefore soil capacity to grow lush, green grazing grasses deep into or through the entire summer season no matter how hot and dry we get. You won’t find that capability in the thin Hill Country soil west of Austin and IH 35.
The house was built by award winning Austin Texas home builder Native and designed to be rated 5 stars according to Austin Energy’s Residential Green Building program for energy efficiency, testing, water efficiency, materials efficiency and health and safety. The home has a passive solar design for maximum energy efficiency. There are solar panels for photovoltaic energy production. The Geothermal HVAC system is the most energy efficient and environmentally clean system you can install.
This home was built for Aging In Place, Universal Design and Wheelchair Accessibility too. There is one wide set of stairs to the 2nd floor that is pre-wired for a wheelchair lift. The bottom half of the home is ADA compliant with 36″ doors. The cabinet pulls in the kitchen are ADA and all kitchen drawers are soft close.
