This stunning straw bale home is one of our favorites and was actually baled during one of our previous workshops! The owners are relocating to the east coast for work, which leaves you with an opportunity to perhaps buy one of the most beautiful and unique straw bale houses out there!
Elegantly constructed post and beam home with unique old-world European artisan details. All the rural charm of private wooded acreage with a seasonal creek and garden/orchard; plus the urban amenities of high speed internet and a very short drive to shopping and downtown Ashland (pop. 22,000) which offers a lively arts, food, theater, and music scene. Ashland has also been home to our family for the last 20 years and is one of the loveliest areas to live in.
