Greenhouses are designed to make things flourish, and sustainable second homes are no exception — luxurious living thrives in second homes with environmentally sound features. Elegant and efficient, green gets an upgrade in these five eco-minded retreats. 

Green getaway

The Estate is a shining example of sustainability. The solar-powered mountaintop perch makes it perfect for harnessing the Napa Valley sun. A Syrah vineyard and natural spring make going off grid an even more refreshing experience.

Eco Oasis

This Palm Springs Pacaso gives new meaning to the term “plug and play.” Charge up the electric car battery in one of the three garage bays. And there’s no need to commute to have some fun: Play a match on the backyard tennis court or play a round on the private four-hole putting green.
