A Malibu, Calif., spec home built with recycled concrete and sustainable timber is hitting the market for $32 million.
The roughly 14,400-square-foot modern ranch-style house has all electric appliances and mechanical systems, and comes with an organic vegetable garden, orchard and apiary, according to marketing materials. In addition, the developer said it reduced carbon emissions during construction by using alternative building materials.
"This home will have zero [carbon] emissions throughout its lifetime," said Scott Morris of Crown Pointe Estates, developer of the home. The average U.S. home emits 8.3 metric tons of carbon dioxide a year, according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data.
