Passive solar house and micro farm - designed and built by NASA engineer. Close to Dale Hollow, Standing Stone, Pickett State Park and the Big South Fork Wilderness Area. Unparalleled beauty, peace of mind, and sustainability options easy drive from Middle Tennessee metro areas.

Monolithic slab design 900 sqft house, cabin design, heavy metal roof and siding, exceeds building codes for construction. Passive solar keeps the house between 43 and 78F with no heat or cool - propane gas heat, stove/range, solar hi-efficiency appliances, antique 1926 clawfoot tub, new counter with matching double sinks. Beautiful natural porcelain tile floor for maximum solar heat absorption in winter and slab cooling in the summer. Solar windows and glass, scenic area of small farms and woodlands.

48+- fruit trees on 1 1/2acres, blueberry patch, immense garden space, rich soil never farmed. The trees are hand selected and hand-raised apple pear and native papaya ("pawpaw"). Trees are 25' now and are strong bearing. Amish built shed with 20hp tractor/mower, above ground irrigation system, all tools and soil treatments go with the property, including huge garden area and a blueberry patch. Parcels on all sides are available. Walk down the tiny country road, following the perennial bottom stream, to the Cumberland for fishing, boating, swimming and kayaking.

I designed and built the 48-tree orchard and passive solar house for a weekend retreat / retirement / sustainability microfarm, business and health concerns prevent me from caring for it appropriately, thus it's for sale. Great community with good values and good schools. Email for more pics and details.
