Southern California is adding to its growing collection of uber-green LEED Platinum homes with the recent completion of the Project7Ten House. While the original renderings of this design looked promising, nothing inspires us more than seeing green buildings actually get built. The photographs of this recently constructed green house far surpass the original renderings we saw a few months back, and we are thrilled to see such an elegant eco-house for sale in LA.
Thanks to Preston over at Jetson Green, we’ve learned of the recent completion of this gorgeously green Venice home. Designed last year by architect Melinda Gray, the Project7Ten House has drawn a star-studded crowd of potential buyers. So if you’re in the market for a house in Venice, California, and don’t mind the attention of the paparazzi, you might consider making your way to 710 Milwood Avenue.
The Project7Ten House is the first conventionally constructed LEED Platinum house in California (as opposed to all those prefabs we are always talking about), proving that being green is easy and can take on many forms. If the Energy Star appliances, the solar panels roof, the locally sourced green materials, and the gray water recycling systems, among its many green aspects, aren’t enough to draw a buyer in this tight market, perhaps the accompanying 18-month lease on a Ford Escape Hybrid will pique your interest. Personally, the use of Kirei throughout – in the beams and the stairs – is enough to make our mouths water and consider a move to warmer weather.
