Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Diane is a native of Evergeen Colorado and Mike is from Kentucky. Mike moved here in 1983 fresh out of college and fell in love with Diane and the mountains. We fufilled our dream of building a carbon net zero (green) mountain home in 2009. Mike is a former employee of National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Diane works with special needs children.

Why the Owner Chose Idaho Springs:
Unsurpassed views of 14 thousand foot peaks and the continental divide while living in luxury. Far enough away from the city to get the true feel of the Rocky Mountains yet close enough to enjoy city activities. The clear mountain air and freedom from light pollution provides amazing star gazing. Truly spectacular home and location!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home was designed by a National Renewable Energy Laboratories engineer and featured on local TV stations. numerous engineering, design and architectural associations have toured the home for its green features.
