In a previous blog post regarding the sustainable home trend, I based my post on a Wall Street Journal article featuring the ultimate eco-sensitive home in San Francisco. Coincidentally, that home has just hit the market. It’s on an aptly-named street as well: 2680 “Green” Street.
Built to enhance its owner’s quality of life, this masterwork of sustainability has been fully renovated, which just might make it the largest single-family home to be certified as a “Passive Home” by the Passive Home Institute, a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization that develops, maintains and promotes high performance passive building standards. Those enhanced standards are said to improve building energy efficiency by up to 80% compared to current code construction.
This home offers the ultimate in energy and thermal efficiency, high quality indoor air and water conservation, luxurious appointments. It combines advanced technology and sustainability practices in an absolutely beautiful home.
Here’s a list of some of the amenities the new owners will enjoy:
- Spa with steam shower
- Roof deck with fireplace
- Cantilevered Glass Staircase
- Multi-Touch Kitchen Display
- Whole house water filtration
- Integrated non-toxic pest control measures
- Under-slab barrier and active venting to mitigate harmful gas infiltration
- Carbon monoxide alarms and actively vented garage
- Add to that, expansive views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the San Francisco Bay, all entirely achieved through the continuous incorporation of indoor/outdoor living design.
