Earth Sheltered Eco-friendly Home
with the Option to Live on or Off the Grid!

Princeton, Ontario

Imagine yourself living in a one-of-a-kind earth sheltered home with the option to live on or off the grid! It’s as easy as the flick of a switch! Welcome to 727124 Township Road 3, situated on 2 private acres just north of Princeton. Easy access to 401/403 and cities such as Brantford, Cambridge, Woodstock, making it perfect for those who need to commute.

This 2700 sq ft bungalow was meticulously and sustainably built to the highest standards (Leeds Platinum Stds) for healthy, chemical-free living, utilizing the best environmentally safe products.

The open concept main living area is finished with polished/etched concrete floors with in-floor heating. The bio-mass pellet heating stove (corn) is efficient and in the colder months can inexpensively heat the whole home. The 4-pane windows, skylights and the solarium that runs the entire length of the home allow an abundance of natural light and offer a beautiful view of the countryside.

Off of the main living area there’s a spiral staircase up to a loft/observatory which can be the perfect spot for an office, a quiet place to enjoy a book or watch the stars. A powder room completes this space.

Head into the kitchen with exquisite custom hickory cabinets, Brazilian granite countertops, a propane gas range and an oversized moveable island. This is the perfect space for cooking and entertaining while your guests are nearby!

Heading down the hall is the main bathroom complete with whirlpool tub and separate shower. You’ll also find a good-sized storage/utility and laundry area. Three spacious bedrooms all with large closets and doors that lead into the solarium complete this level.

This expansive property also offers an above-ground pool (27′ diameter) with deck to enjoy during the warm summer months. A double detached garage with bonus office space is nearby, plus a 1000 sq ft workshop is perfect for the hobbyist or car enthusiast.

On-grid MicroFIT 10kW Solar Tracker backfeeds the grid and provides an income of approximately $1100/month or $14,000/year (approx. 12 years left on the contract). Separate solar systems to power the house store energy and heat water. Separate hydro meters for solar revenue and on-grid use.

Don’t miss your chance to own this unique, eco-friendly home in a picturesque countryside for years to come!
