Property Description


Environmentalist's dream! Designed by a former Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice with a large amount of exterior glass patio doors. Seller installed solar photovoltaics on the roof and modified it to make it extremely environmentally benign. Last year's net energy use was -2566 kWh for which PG&E sent a refund. Original windows were replaced w/ hi efficiency windows.  Roof insulation replaced w/ higher efficiency insulation that is termite and rat resistant. The sloped roof is fire resistant cement tile.  Propane backup generator with auto transfer switch, 220 Volt charging station that charges in 2 hrs. All local driving was powered for free!  Kitchen redone in 2015 includes hi eff. GE induction cook top and a Fisher- Paykel two drawer dishwasher under a quartz and acrylic countertop. Adjacent and just north of the house is a Redwood grove with 38 trees, "The best room in the house" including a small "Milk Shed" used by the Lazarottis to store milk and butter.
