This is a new single family, single level modern home built as a demonstration house by Noble Home on 2.9 rural acres with mountain views and river frontage. It features many sustainable building methods and materials. It is listed at $340,000.

This property is on perfect homestead acreage along the popular North River in Colrain, Massachusetts. Bring your animals, boat and hiking shoes to take advantage of all the nature based recreation on site and in the surrounding area. The charming village of Shelburne Falls is just 2 miles away for coffee shops, restaurants, galleries and more.

This rural home faces its back to the roadway and is protected from noise and publicity with an energy efficient earth berm. Enter the house through the protected entry and discover the expansion of interior space with light and views out to the southern woods and river. The modern openness of the architecture brings the outside in. Cook, eat, relax or entertain in the large 20’ x 28’ great room which includes kitchen, dining and living areas, with 24’ of glass wall: cool and shaded in summer, sunlit and warn in winter. A smaller hallway leads to three bedrooms and a unique large master bath that can be closed off into 2 bath rooms: a powder room and a washroom.

The super-insulated structure is comprised of 7.5″ thick SIP (structural insulated panel) walls and roof. Passive solar heating with propane fueled radiant floor heat back-up ensures low energy consumption. Integral color plaster walls with natural wax finish, FSC rated solid local wood ceiling and exposed roof trusses, and solid wood cabinets all contribute to the healthy interior. There is no engineered wood inside or in the structure of the house, and there is no paint or stain as well. Floors and counters are polished concrete for beauty, longevity and low maintenance. Glass tile in the kitchen and tub surround contrast the more natural toned walls.
