When rich person talks about sustainability, we bet they hardly think to start from their home. However, if you beg to differ or decide it is time to start to start with a sustainable home (beside NOT jet setting with your private jet…), then the Casa Vista Paraiso Sustainable Home maybe right up your alley, well, that’s you are prepared to move your ass to Costa Rica, where this beautiful property awaits. Built by Catalfumo Construction, this sprawling 8,950 square foot private luxury estate sits in a forest sanctuary overlooking the golf course greens within the Los Sueños Resort and boasts 5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, intricately cut tile, Costa Rican hardwood, and granite – lots of it. But how is it ‘sustainable’? Well, here’s the gist:
“Green building means refining the way that structures use energy, water, and materials to reduce their impact on the environment. Building a green home means making environmentally sustainable choices that will minimize impact during construction and throughout the years it will be in use.”
Ermmm. Ok. Actually I don’t quite get it, but anyways, according to the official words, this majestic and drool-worthy property is a “U.S. quality energy star” home, which dictates that strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are met. And assuming of it did meet the stringent guidelines, this home will help you reduce the money going to utilities (not that it matters to someone who can afford this, just saying…), and offers “a more comfortable living environment with better indoor air quality, and help protect the environment.” Apart from eco aspect, this home is pretty up there in terms of tech too, boasting management of lighting, security and more via wireless control with any smart device, even when you are half way round the world.
And what’s the asking price for a energy star green efficiency home that’s also high tech and “pure luxury in paradise”? Well, not much, ‘only’ $3,195,000. You can find out more about this Casa Vista Paraiso Sustainable Home in Costa Rica over at HRG listing HERE.
