The House That LEED Built in Mill Valley

The House That LEED Built in Mill Valley

I seem to have developed a fondness for houses built of warm, glowing wood. Add sustainability, dark walls, rope accents and a view, and I'm sunk. This is vertical living at its sustainable best – a cedar-clad home, designed to capture magnificent views of the San Francisco bay at every turn.

The numerous balconies and terraces on each floor create an open plan feel in what is most definitely, a multi-story space. Gorgeous details abound, and as the first custom built house in Marin County to receive LEED Platinum certification, this beautiful home is filled with environmentally-friendly solutions; from low-flow plumbing to recycled content concrete to sustainably harvested floors and cabinetry.
