A home for ecology and design, the house and grounds at Lion's Fire Farm are ready to provide year round comfort, energy, and style. Nestled between New Harmony, the Westside of Evansville, and Mt. Vernon, the home was designed and built in 2016 by engineer and permaculturalist Ryan Zaricki, owner of Indiana solar contractor Whole Sun Designs. A host of sustainable design features are evident from first glance, from the expandable 4 kW solar electric system, to the native, local poplar siding. A white oak framed deck with local cedar posts and flooring walks up to the rear of the home - perfect for morning coffees or summer thunderstorm watching. Permaculture design principles are prevalent throughout: perennial food production, stacking functions, composting, and cyclical patterns. Passive solar design and heated tile floors warm the home, and a vaulted studio floor plan opens above. The home's full bath and heated concrete floors with natural walnut stain are at the main level. South facing casement windows provide passive solar heat in the winter and an overhead door is perfect for watching sunsets or turning the family room into a porch party. Low to no-VOC products are utilized throughout to minimize off-gassing and maximize indoor air quality. Back out on the grounds, an artist cottage with radiant floor heat and earthen plaster ceiling is ready for guests. Built from reclaimed barn beams from Aunt Vivian's barn, the porches and exposed framing of the artist shack are inspiring, including an artisan-made willow branch porch swing. A goat shed boasts a living roof of sedums and perennials. A variety of fruit trees, medicinal herbs, and edibles grow here, including blackberries, raspberries, grapes, peaches, pears, plums, elderberries, service berries, rhubarb, hops, giant plantains, cup plants, lilac, lilies, resurrection lilies, lemon balm, anise hissup, motherwart, comfrey, bee balm, and on and on. A map of the property and information on the solar system, fresh air exchanger, 10,000 gallon rainwater catchment system, and other sustainable features are documented in a home guide available to the buyer. The property includes a burned out house sold AS-IS that could be repaired for storage, torn down, or renovated - but enter at your own risk. From the sweeping views, to the sustainable roots, to the gardens and grounds, the quiet, country paradise at Lion's Fire Farm is on the market and ready for its next stewards.
