Early Green Energy Prototype Eco-Home Offered for First Time Sale in Boulder, Colorado

BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Re/max of Boulder is proud to offer for the first time at public sale an important early green energy inspired eco-home located in the white hot North Boulder market. Designed in 1979 and constructed in 1981 under the watchful eye of the late acclaimed and influential Northern California architect Gerald Veverka, the home is truly a forward looking visionary property with a design as much modern timeless as it is technologically retro chic.

"The seller of this incredible property was an innovator in his own right in the field of telecommunications. He consistently focused his thinking towards the future" states Re/Max Certified EcoBroker® Eric Jacobson, who is representing this extraordinary residence. "He took his passion to foresee and address tomorrow's problems with him in every aspect of his life and this home is no exception. It is simply a design that resides far ahead of its time."

Constructed around the philosophy that it is not only possible but beneficial to base residential design around harnessing the energy of the Colorado sun, the home is built as a standing solar collector with luxury accommodations intelligently and artistically incorporated around the ecological components. "It is truly a one of a kind property that offers historical importance and forward relevance" continues Jacobson. "It represents an opportunity for ownership that is equally unique and not likely to make itself available again for decades."

So how does it work? This innovative home is built around the philosophy of passive solar design. Passive solar design incorporates features in the home and its natural surroundings which capture the sun's low rays in winter and deflect the sun's high rays in summer. This process naturally warms and cools the interior of the house in opposite seasons. Design and layout of windows, walls, and floors collect, store and distribute solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and block solar heat in the summer. The home's orientation, elevation, room layout, materials, and surrounding outdoor landscaping all contribute to the success of the process. "Every element of this property is thoroughly thought out and executed to achieve maximum efficiency" Jacobson reflects. "Even the littlest details were of incredible importance to the seller when conceiving the design of this property. As such none were overlooked".

Equally detailed with exquisite livability in mind, additional features to this 3008 square ft., two story eco-home include a secure and private end of a cul-de-sac location backing to a scenic Agricultural Preserve. A private courtyard, shaded by beautiful grape vines and trees welcomes visitors. Numerous beautifully landscaped gardens grace the properties exquisitely laid out 1/3 acre lot. An attached Solarium provides a little taste of summer year round and creates a unique perspective during Boulder's famously picturesque winters. An updated kitchen w/granite & stainless steel appliances & wood stove along with a durable metal roof and a side loading garage add to the appeal of this unique, green prototype home.
