Troon Pacific, Inc., developer of some of the most environmentally sustainable luxury residences in the United States, today announced the completion of its latest ultra-luxury home in San Francisco.
Located at 2680 Green St. and referred to as Residence 2680, this 4 bedroom, 6½ bath single-family home is pending final certification as both a LEED® Platinum and passive home. The development represents today’s highest energy standard with the promise of reducing heating energy consumption by 90 percent.
On the market for $13 million, Residence 2680 underscores the brand’s continued commitment to providing healthy living environments to the residents of the San Francisco Bay Area. It will also be Troon Pacific’s fifth LEED Platinum home in California. Similar to its other developments, Residence 2680 incorporates “healthy living” into the details and systems of the home, impacting both the architectural design and health-related features including air quality, sound attenuation, amenities, lighting design, life-safety and finishes.
“We’ve taken our focus on what we’re calling ‘Urbane Wellness™’ to the next level with Residence 2680,” said Greg Malin, CEO of Troon Pacific. “Thoughtful components such as maximized use of natural light, organic gardens, aromatherapy in the steam room and light and heat control sensors allow for enhanced natural living patterns and personal wellness sensibilities.”
Upon final certification, Residence 2680 will be a Passive House Institute (or PHIUS+) certified “passive home,” a term that refers to a rigorous and voluntary standard for energy efficiency by constructing a sensible building envelope that reduces thermal bridging, controls air movement, and is vapor permeable. Passive homes reduce their ecological footprint because they use ultra-low energy requirements for space heating or cooling.
In addition to high-end amenities such as a floating glass cantilevered staircase, four-floor hydraulic elevator and climate-controlled wine cellar, what makes this property stand out is its ability to use little energy; it essentially maintains ideal room temperatures regardless of outside weather conditions. Residence 2680 also has high indoor air quality due to fresh air being consistently circulated through the home and additionally being filtered through MERV 13 filters.
Residence 2680 not only incorporates water conservation measures inside the home, but also implements effective and efficient use of water through features such as rain water harvesting for irrigation, a high efficiency drip irrigation system, a smart controller with an on-site weather station and drought-tolerant landscaping throughout the garden, roof and decks.
“Residence 2680 truly raises the bar for the ways in which ultra-luxury homes can be built to save energy and uses natural resources in the most efficient and eco-friendly ways possible,” said Malin. “The integration of these measures not only adds to the home’s architectural integrity, but also seamlessly combines design and wellness.”
