Earth stewards wanted! Two beautiful custom homes, one straw bale and the other of earth bag construction, on a 45+ acre wildlife sanctuary on Deer Creek! Secluded yet only 20 minutes to downtown Nevada City, this magical property is an important part of the Deer Creek watershed with 2 year-round creeks and 3 waterfalls. Most of the property is held in a conservation easement by Bear Yuba Land Trust. The main house is a fire-hardened, 2 br/1.5 bath straw bale home bathed in natural light, with canyon views and artisan accents including curved, plaster-finish walls, radiant heat floors, a masonry stove, deep window sills, built-in bookshelves, and owned solar w/batteries, plus PG&E. The 2-car tandem garage has a large workshop and a root cellar. Seller has done much of the forest thinning and would like to co-stewarding the land while renting the second home from the new owners, a beautiful 650-sq. ft., 1 bedroom/1 bath earthbag house w/a large loft and its own well/power/septic/detached garage/driveway, but is willing to move out. A small strawbale studio w/a propane fireplace, sink and loft sits on the hill just above the main house. Fenced garden area includes a pollinator garden and a small orchard with apple and pear trees. Seller will consider creative ownership structures.
