Yes, This Super Sustainable House Has Water-Saving Toilets
There’s only a few homes in the city with LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and this is one of them. What might these green features be? Glad you asked:
• Solar paneled roof (provides 25% of electricity)
• Energy-efficient appliances
• LED down-lights
• Water-saving fixtures and toilets
• 3-bike storage shed with green roof
• Energy-efficient mechanicals
Renovated, expanded, and rebuilt two years ago, the property earned a 90.5 score in October of 2012.
But in addition to the above-mentioned features, the house vaunts wide-plank hardwood floors, custom staircase, and a master suite with a balcony. In the living room, a perfect view of the bluestone patio (with irrigation system) can be had, and there’s even a walkout deck on the third floor. The kitchen, meanwhile, includes cabinetry made of solid maple, granite countertops, SubZero fridge, and an oversized farmhouse sink. An office can be found in the finished lower level.
The home is also in the Greenfield School catchment and its tax abatement runs through 2022.
