3 Bedroom Envelope House on 16 Acres m/l
This unique property is made for self sustaining!
This unique home known as a ‘Double Envelope Home’ is a split level that was built in 1982, is right at 1,400′ square feet with three bedrooms and one bath, it offers beautiful views and has a relatively maintenance free metal roof!
So enough about the house for a minute. Let’s talk about the property, because it is just as cool as the house. There are currently two gardens, a stocked 1 acre fishing pond, 3 acres of timber for all your hunting desires, a large pasture area for livestock or hay, an “orchard” area full of fruit trees, a barn currently set up with chickens and goats, a smaller shop that is set up as a work shop, mature Evergreen trees creating a wind block and new fencing all around the property.
Taxes are less that $700 a year, located in the West Nodaway school district and only 25 miles from Maryville, Missouri/Northwest Missouri State University.
The unique style of home makes for an extremely low heat bill in the winter months! 200 gallons of propane and a couple loads of wood….all winter!
2 wells supplying well water. Rural water is available 1/3 mile away.
If you are someone looking to live off the grid and provide your own food…this is the home for you! You can garden, raise livestock, hunt, fish, and harvest the fruit trees.
Envelope Home on a Beautiful Acreage
What is an envelope home?
I am sure you are wondering, as I was at first too!
A double envelope house is a passive solar house design which collects solar energy in a solarium and passively allows the warm air to circulate around the house between two sets of walls, a double building envelope. This design is from 1975 by Lee Porter Butler in the United States.
