Eden Mills, near Guelph, Ontario
This passive-solar "green" home completed at the end of 2008 is nestled on a 1.3 acre wooded property in the vibrant and sought-after community of Eden Mills. Adjacent to an environmental land trust, which means outside your door you have 38 acres of walking trails: meander along the Blue Springs creek or through the woods and know they are protected forever. The home is custom designed to maximize the use of space where families spend most of their day. It has great flow with it's open-concept design and feels spacious with 9-foot and lofted ceilings. All the unique black cherry trim, including the wide sills were milled on-site from the property during the build.
In the winter this home is extra cosy with radiant heat polished concrete floors, a high-efficiency wood stove and three banks of windows that allow the sunlight to flood in. The house stays cool in the summer with large overhangs and sunshades. Even with the obvious environmental sustainability features of this straw-bale home, the pragmatist within you should also be comforted to know that this stunning home costs less: about half the heating and hydro costs of a comparable sized home. You do not have to choose between function or form - you can have it all. Indeed, you might be asking yourself after viewing this property: if you'll ever have another chance for a home like this again.
