What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

This quality built home offers "Green Living" with professionally installed solar panels capable of generating 4.3 kwh, solar tubes, skylights, and 100% compact fluorescent lighting. Interior features combine an open floor plan that easily flows from the living & dining areas into the convenient kitchen. The utility room and lower bath are adjacent to the kitchen with rear entry to the backyard deck.
A “T” style staircase leads to the bedrooms in one wing of the home and a large family/bonus room above a two car garage at the opposite end. The spacious master bedroom is illuminated with an arched radius window and includes a private bath & walk-in closet. A full guest bath and two guest bedrooms are down the hall.
Outside, a double wide drive extends to a covered front porch. The grounds are tastefully landscaped with low maintenance drought resistant plants. A stone pathway leads to the fully fenced backyard and deck. Solar panels are roof mounted and tied directly to the utility power grid allowing power to be sold back to the utility at the same rate that is charged by the utility under Washington’s net metering law. This solar system also qualifies for Washington State annual production incentives up to $5,000 per year. The current owners are also members of the Northwest Solar Coop which allows them to sell RECs (Renewable Energy Certificates known as “Green Tags”) which promote investment in renewable energy.
