What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Built into the natural landscape of the lot, the home was constructed with environmentally friendly materials while incorporating renewable resources and recycled or reused materials. Highlights of the home start with solar, radiant floor heat with wall-mounted air conditioning units for AC eliminating unnecessary ductwork providing for cleaner air. The well thought out central stairway allows the cool air to be pulled from the lower level which is partially sunken into the ground. The first and second stories are masonry block, which acts as a thermal barrier that conserves warmth in the winter and traps cooler temps in the summer. The home is overflowing with repurposed items - light fixtures that were once nautical lamps, converted antique sideboards for bathroom vanities, many interior doors have been milled from lumber salvaged from tobacco barns and more. The home also has an innovative rainwater reuse system for the whole home, used for all household water needs including consumption. Solar energy meets rainwater reuse and heats the water for the home.

Neighborhood Description

Located in a quiet, year-round neighborhood, this is the perfect year round home or second home. The over-sized lot and easy to maintain natural landscaping allows for plenty of privacy.
