With Earth Day approaching on April 22, this eco-friendly home in Laporte, Colo., offers the perfect setting to celebrate going green.

Not only is this custom ranch-style home environmentally-friendly, it’s also built entirely with non-toxic materials, making it the ideal residence for allergy and asthma sufferers.

Set on 40 acres and once the site of a Pony Express stop, this five-bedroom, three-bath, 3,578-square-foot home, features a beautiful state-of-the-art kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a dining room and deck with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and rock formations.

Carpets have been shunned in favor of maple-wood flooring and non-toxic paints and stains, along with an air ventilator, ensure that indoor air quality is as fresh as the mountain air.

Located 30 minutes from downtown Fort Collins, the surrounding area is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream with nearby Poudre Canyon offering mountain biking, hiking, fishing, river rafting and rock climbing.
