Coolest Eco-Friendly Palisades Home Can Now Be Yours! Live Green While Living in Luxury

Super-green, Stunning & Sexy Vicino House For Sale in Pacific Palisades

Developer Mike Gottlieb built the spectacular Vicino House with the intent to educate the public on how one can build a green home, without having to sacrifice quality and style for the sake of building an eco-friendly house.  The property was recently completed and is built to the highest standards of green (expected to receive LEED for Homes Platinum certification). In short, the owner's mantra is "Sustainable Living and Luxury Design".

Since Mike decided to move to a location closer to his daily business activities, he has listed his fabulous Green/LEED home for sale with Prudential California Realty Brentwood - thus making the stunning Vicino House available to lovers of luxury living spaces that are also the greenest they can be.
This home features amazing style and craftsmanship, as well as a location that's hard to beat. Perched atop the bluffs of Pacific Palisades, with whitewater and Queen's necklace views, this property truly is a must-see. With most homes that are built green, the green aspect becomes the focal point of the house. However, in Michael's house, because of its unique level of sophistication, elegance, and richness, the green theme becomes simply another remarkable aspect among many. Its open floor plan and multiple levels/views make it a great entertainment house. In fact, the owner has thrown several charity events with over 200 people per event, and the house can easily accommodate more.  The absence of toxins and allergens inside the house make it an extremely healthy home as well.

The sexiness and cutting edge design aspects of the house obviously will be appealing to many; however, because many people in the entertainment industry want to be on the forefront of health, technology and social/planetary awareness, there is a strong chance it may sell to someone involved with the entertainment field. That said, this amazing home is sure to attract potential buyers of all types, from all walks of life, far and wide.

Since pictures are worth a thousand words, check out some photos of the home below.
Now you truly can be trendy and eco-friendly at the same time. Do good, live great.
