It's about light.
The use of natural and incandescent light play an important role in the design of 231 Elmira. Because of the large quantity of glazed elements (19 windows, 12 full-glass doors and 5 skylights in just over 1,400 sqare feet) daylight floods the home from evey angle, creating a feeling of warmth, openess and a connection to the natural environment. At night, when ambiance is of paramount importance, a mix of recessed, track and pendant fixtures controlled by 28 Lutron dimmers allow ultimate flexibilty in setting the stage for everything from hip cocktail parties to quiet evenings at home. The warm glow emanating from the wood-burning fireplace is an incomparable ally whent the weather turns chilly and damp.

Electric. The home is powered by 200-amp electrical service. Several pre-wired features extend the power grid's flexibilty including: 220-volt receptacles is both bedrooms (allowing either room to be converted for alternate use), numorous outdoor GFI receptacles (including two controlled by interior switches) and a 50-amp exterior breakout box with interior breakers for a future hot tub.

Heat. The home is warmed by hot-water radiant-heated concrete floors as well as passive solar gain from the large windows. The floor and domestic hot water are both heated by a Triangle Tube Delta Performance Plus gas-fired combination heater. The fireplace is a Majestic SC36A (made by Vermont Castings) with fan-powered circulating air controlled from a wall switch and provides a great deal of additional heating.

Water. Public water service is provided by the City of Port Townsend. In addition to two standard exterior hose bibs a hot & cold bib is installed in the outdoor shower area.

Waste. A pressurized deep sand lined trench drainfiled and two 1,000 tanks make up the septic system, designed by John Scott Fleming Engineering.

The Kenmore full-size stackable washer and dryer, Kenmore dual-fuel range (electric oven, gas stovetop), and KitchenAid refrigerator are all just over one year old and are included in the sale price.
