Nestled on slopes just west of Manhattan, looking over the Flint Hills, this gorgeous home is optimally placed on a 10 acre lot to allow for dynamic views of the valleys below. Sleek clean lines mixed with contemporary design elements creates a cozy farmhouse aesthetic and a deep connection to the outside landscape. Filled with the warmth of natural textures and materials, the open concept floor plan is bathed in light from the dramatic vistas visible from almost all windows. This 5 bed/4 bath, high efficiency home was built as an engineered post and beam structure utilizing straw bale as the infill insulation. Basement foundation walls are insulated concrete forms with drainage rock and pipe placed at the footing and around the entire foundation. 2 bays of the 3 car garage were built with pre-stressed concrete panels which created a massive safe room underneath in the basement. Featuring geothermal heat and cooling, this home is also optimally placed for future solar installation.
