The nearly 2,000-square-foot house sits on more than 10 acres of wooded land. There are between 4 and 10 feet of ground on the roof of the home, the current owner explains, and the grass on the roof can be mowed with a tractor.
Inside, the home has a pool and spa, as well as a spiral staircase leading up to a loft area. The home has two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms.
There are about 170 yards of concrete used in the construction of the home, the owner says. It’s heated by a small propane stove, and the owner says that even without heat for a week in the winter, the coldest the home has ever gotten was 66 degrees.
The home, built in 2000, is listed for $799,000. Learn more about the listing here.
