This six-bedroom, three-and-one-half-bathroom, 4,800-square-foot home is certified as both a Chicago Green Home and an Energry Star certified home, and is in the process of becoming LEED certified.
Every room in the house has at least one energy-efficient Pella Architect Series window. In addition, there are low VOC paints, caulks and adhesives used throughout to reduce indoor air pollution. Soy-based foam insulation is used throughout to maximize energy efficiency and minimize potential air leaks. The tile and countertops featured in several rooms of the home are made from recycled materials and solar panels that heat potable water for shower, dishwasher, dryer and laundry use.
The first floor features reclaimed hardwood floors that were salvaged from the previous house and then refinished.

Also located on the first floor are the dining room, powder room, mudroom and a great room that has custom bookcases with a leaded glass door reclaimed from the deconstructed home. There are also sliding doors that lead outside to the deck and backyard.
The kitchen comes equipped with stainless steel and energy-efficient appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf gas cooktop and electric wall oven and InSinkErator garbage disposal. The butler’s pantry features a GE Monogram wine refrigerator, an undermount sink and glass front cabinets.
