More than just a modern beach house, this sustainable 6,200 sq.ft., 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms design has all the neighbors Green with envy. Its sustainable features make this contemporary cottage-style house all the more appealing. Located in Truro on a plot overlooking Cape Cod Bay and Provincetown, this relaxed beach house designed by ZeroEnergy Design and built by Silvia & Silvia Custom Builders makes Green look good from any angle. “The Energy Star Certified home features a geothermal wall, zero carbon footprint, and a photovoltaic system which allows electricity produced and not consumed, to be pushed back to the grid,” according to Silvia & Silvia. And this design gives back in more ways than one. The interior – furnished with renewable bamboo furniture and featuring expansive walls of windows for natural lighting throughout – is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the environment.
