This new home — Neptune Norte — is located in Encintas just a stone’s throw from the beach.  The $6,995,000 beach pad has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and about 5,347 square feet, but with the green features, Neptune Norte is supposed to use about 54% less energy than a new home built to the code.

The home was designed and built by brothers, Jeff Adams of Wave Crest and Steve Adams of Adams Design Associates.  It received LEED Platinum certification with 108 points and is the third custom home in San Diego county to receive the designation.

Neptune Norte has a 5.9 kW solar PV system, vegetated green roof, a 1,700 gallon cistern to use rainwater for irrigation, Azek composite fascia and trim, Trex composite decking, and no- or low-VOC paints, sealants, and adhesives.

For energy efficiency, the home has low-e argon-filled windows (with aluminum exterior clad wood), Eco Seal air sealing, blown-in cellulose insulation, tankless water heaters, high efficiency gas furnaces, sealed ductwork, Energy Star appliances, and Lutron lighting controls, according to Wave Crest.

Neptune Norte is listed under MLS #120029933 with Jo Ann Shannon at Sea Coast Exclusive Properties.
