New Hampshire Earth-Sheltered Home Requires Mowing The Roof, But It's Worth It (VIDEO)

We've seen earth-sheltered homes before, but this Lyme, New Hampshire house for sale requires some maintance that, quite frankly, we've never heard of.

Voted Wall Street Journal's "House of the Week," this 4,100-square-foot abode is built into the side of a hill. According to the video above, the owners have to mow the roof once a year. But that little bit of unusual maintenance is a small price to pay when you see what it looks like on the inside. We're particularly fond of the wooden ceiling beams and the floors with radiating heat. Not the mention the killer view. And guess what? It can be all yours for just $1,575,000.

Watch the video above to see more of the home, and head over to the Wall Street Journal for more information.

Here's another home that's been built into a hill!
