If you bike or walk around West Boulder, you may have noticed this new home built in the past year. Named the Next West House, it is a LEED Platinum, Net Zero Carbon residence. Most of the extreme eco homes of late are very modern aka Dwell Mag style, but this home fits in seamlessly with it’s historic Mapleton Hill neighborhood. Developed by the Zero Carbon Initiative, this home actually creates more power than it uses and was thoughtfully created to include the best eco options available including:
Geothermal heat and cooling – Gray water system – Solar photovoltaics – Recycled brick – Soy insulation – LED lighting throughout- Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) lumber, flooring and cabinetry – even a garage pre-wired for your electric car
Bragging rights to this eco marvel can be yours for a cool 3.4 million. See more photos and video of the home’s construction or contact me for a private showing.
