The owners of this unique straw bale house in Ashland asked if I could post information about it here. They are selling their home and I think this may be a great place for them to find the perfect buyer. The house is roughly 1736 square feet and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

It sits on nearly two acres of land above Southern Oregon University. It is listed at $469,000. If you know Ashland, you know this is within the market.

The following are the real estate agent’s comments of the property: Here is your opportunity to move into the convenient truth of low impact living! This energy efficient straw bale home sits on 1.79 lush acres secluded above Southern Oregon University with easy access to downtown Ashland. Built by an award winning designer and builder in a peaceful setting of open space, trees and a creek with great views. Large upstairs loft with four closets currently used as two partitioned bedrooms w/master, kitchen and dining/living area on the main floor. This is the time and place to own a natural nontoxic earth friendly home to live in or use as a vacation rental.

Please feel free to post comments to this blog if you are interested. I can forward your information to the agent if you desire.
