Sunset Idea House

This is the San Francisco Sunset Idea House for 2007, and it's one of the first LEED Certified residential remodeled homes in the nation.  This home is unique from other Sunset Idea Houses in that it's in a dense urban area on a compact site.  There are two-units and the smaller one, which is about 1,200 sf, is reportedly on sale for $1,089,000.  No word on whether the larger, 3,600 sf unit will be for sale. 

Designed by John Lum, this home has everything one could ever ask for in a green home: FSC-certified floors, flyash concrete finished floors, Benjamin Moore low-VOC paints, GE Monogram energy-efficient appliances, a roof garden, rainwater catchment system, small-wind turbine, and a hi-tech resource monitoring system. 

It should be noted also that the home was designed to generate enough renewable energy to sustain itself, which makes it net zero energy.
