McCormick Ranch Property Makes Elle Décor’s List of “Coolest Eco-Friendly Homes On The Market Right Now.”

Featured in Elle Décor’s list “The Coolest Eco-Friendly Homes On The Market Right Now” is the Harmonious Luxury Home at 1021 McCormick Ranch Road.  

Built to the highest environmental and aesthetic standards, this property is truly one of a kind.  Appearing as an old rancher’s homestead with reclaimed barn wood exterior and rusted corrugated steel roof, the rustic exterior masks a refined, understated interior, the latest in eco-friendly building techniques and materials, and solar arrays for both heat and electrical generation. With systems designed and engineered by REG, 1021 McCormick is the first LEED Gold certified house constructed on the Western Slope (2008).  All interior and exterior lights on the house and barn are LED, producing clear light with minimal energy cost. The interior walls are coated with American Clay. Constructed of structural insulated panels (SIPs), the house is extremely well insulated and quiet. The solar water panels collect heat which is stored in a large insulated water tank to provide extra heat when the sun is down. The panels heat the floors of the house and the hot water supply tank. The large electrical solar array generates excess electricity resulting in an annual check from the electric company.  An air circulation system (ERV) circulates fresh air throughout the house while retaining heat when the outside temperatures are low.  A humidification system adds humidity to the incoming air, creating a nose, throat, and skin friendly interior humidity level and a wonderful sleep environment.  For more information about this property, click here.
