Don’t forget the three, count’em three, greenhouses! (There’s even a fourth if you’re up for repairing it.) In addition, there is a “huge display garden [with] mature, unusual trees and shrubs, including one endangered species.”

After a long day of plant tending, both indoors and out, have a nice comfy lie-down in your cozy (aka small, 452 sq ft) yurt.

  1. Zillow listing here:

    They have it listed as “Off Market”, but they have several more photos of the yurt.

    One of the photos shows snow on the ground. I don’t know, but I wonder that insulation in a yurt is good enough to heat efficiently for an Appalachian winter.

    There aren’t any street views, but the aerial imagery looks like the greenhouses are part of a nursery business, although it’s not listed among local nurseries.

    Otherwise, living in a yurt permanently is a lifestyle choice I can respect though I haven’t chosen that for myself.

    @Frodo: Thanks for the extra photos. They really do give a better idea of what it might be like living in a yurt. Along with your concerns over winter heating, I’ve wondering about the “stove” in Pic 17. I know there are fake stoves, that is ones that don’t actually burn anything. But doesn’t a natural gas/propane fueled “fake” fire still put off heat? There’s is no sign of a flue on that thing. Huh?

    Also, how does plumbing work in a yurt? Given the collapsible looking inner framework (the diamond shape wood lattices), is the place really sturdy enough to keep plumbing stable over time?

    And what happens when there’s a strong storm with high winds??
