If You’re Into Organic Gardening, This Solar-Powered Home Is for You
This home is a rare "net zero" home in terms of electricity. The roof-mounted photovoltaic system generates enough electricity to satisfy this home's electrical needs, which include hot water. Only heating and cooking are done by natural gas. In the backyard are several organic gardening beds (below) plus composting boxes serving all planting needs.
Upstairs is a spacious master suite overlooking the backyard and the greenbelt behind it, plus two guest bedrooms facing the front yard. In the basement is a guest suite with its own kitchenette, currently rented out to a roomer, plus a home theater with a high-end surround-sound system. Don’t look for this home on the MLS — the sellers don’t want to list it until after the holidays. But you can take a narrated video tour of it on its special website shown above.
