Since term “green” can be pretty hard to define when it comes to private residences (even if we go ahead and exclude its definition as a color), this home has a lot more cred in that area than most.
According to the listing, it has LEED Platinum certification and five-star rating from Austin Energy Green Building. While those ratings aren’t the final word on a home’s energy-saving and sustainable features, they do indicate at least the presence of those two things. The most visible (and exciting) of these features include a rainwater collection system and a electric-car charging station.
In terms of overall space and design, this Zilker home has a lot going for it as well. Built in 2011, it consists of a 1,376-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom main house, in addition to a two-car garage with downstairs flex space (including full bathroom) and a 525-square-foot, one-bedroom efficiency upstairs.
