Unique riverfront property in Gasquet on 2 acres! This home is truly a marvel of passive solar and environmental design. Everything from the placement of the house, set precisely on the property so that even on the shortest day of winter, the sun arcs over French Hill to shine on two floors of south facing windows, to the culvert that draws cool air off the Smith River in summer to circulate through the walls, this home was designed to keep you comfortable all year round with minimal electric bills. The entire home has double wall construction that provides six inches of space for both warm and cool air circulation according to the seasons. Underneath the home has a large crawl space with river rocks and water vessels to store cool air from the river culvert in the summer or warm air from the wood stove in the winter when the culvert is closed. The previous owner grew pineapples year round in the southern facing solarium. However, the solarium can be closed off from the rest of the house in the summer to keep the main living area cool. Additional energy saving features include active solar panels that heat your water in the summer and coils at the back of the wood stove that take over the job in the winter. The house also has a super efficient and quiet Mitsubishi heat pump. The property is located on the Middle fork of the Wild and Scenic Smith River, just steps away from where the North and Middle fork join to create what is arguably the best swimming and fishing hole on the river. You will never need to worry about finding a parking place for the Gasquet Raft Race since you’re already there! Even though the home is currently connected to the Gasquet community water supply, there is a spring on the property with an existing water tank and pump house that supplied the property with all its water needs prior to connection. There’s a hot tub in the solarium and a walk in tub in the downstairs bathroom to help you ease your aches and pains from too much hiking, fishing, kayaking or whatever activity calls you to the wonderland that is the Smith River National Recreation Area. Once properly relaxed, you can fall asleep to the lullaby of the river. Location? You got it. This one won’t last long.
