The fantastic Butterfly Beach residence
What we have here is a staggering, contemporary-styled mansion wearing the mark of Maienza-Wilson Interior Design + Architecture. Fitted with practically everything you might possibly need, this is a real estate dream.
Matching the exclusivity found throughout the home is its setting – in Montecito, one of the highly affluent places in Santa Barbara County California, in the States. Moreover, this is in fact one of the first residences in Montecito to receive LEED certification at level Platinum.
In addition, the Butterfly Beach residence boasts with high sustainability in the shape of radiant floor heating, photovoltaic solar panels hidden from view on the butterfly roof, providing enough electricity for the home to run at its fullest, and flat roofs planted with grasses that resist against severe draught, for passive cooling.
The insulation has been done Icynene spray foam, while rainwater is stored in a 5,000-gallon cistern found underneath the construction, storing rainwater to irrigate the garden that actually doesn’t require that much of it. The water garden was decked in such a way that it complements the Zen-like feeling of the entire home.
Previously listed for sale at $15 million, since March 2012, it is now purchasable at a more reasonable $9 million.
