One thing that makes this home so special (and it is, in fact, extremely special) is that it’s LEED Platinum-certified.

Best of all, it was designed by the homeowner, architect ML Vidas, whose goal wasn’t just to create something that was “green,” but to also create something that was beautiful and comfortable.
