Who Says it’s Not Easy Being Green?

Philadelphia may be known for its city appeal and hustle and bustle, but you’ll find that even in the most urban towns, there are plenty of folk thinking of our sustainable livelihood.  Whether its recycling trash cans on the streets of Queen Village or compost bins in the homes of South Philadelphia homes, more and more Philadelphians are going green and integrating their lifestyle with their home buying needs.

With that in mind, we’d like to make special mention of the following green homes:

1342 E Berks
Features: Supplemental solar electric, Rainwater recycling, Green building materials, Community composting, Community garden

This green machine of a home is a 3-story, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom abode complete with almost as many sustainable features as mother nature.  Designed with solar supplemental power and a rain water recycling system, it brings a truly revitalizing element to its gated community.  And with parking and 3 decks, it completely redefines “living green.”


834 N. Lawrence
Northern Liberties
Features: Solar Panels

Recently reduced, this contemporary and uniquely designed 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home features 4000 sq ft of luxury living and lovely, intricate details throughout.  Beautifully designed with an open staircase throughout, 2 dens, and a tremendous master suite, it intertwines elegance and comfort.  Might we add that it’s complete with 2-car parking?


Geary Estates
South Philadelphia
Features: Green Roofs

The first new construction in Packer Park in 20 years, these 3-story homes are not only complete with convenient parking, but have been thoughtfully designed with brick exteriors, granite and stainless kitchens with luxury cabinetry, and hardwood floors in every room.  The outdoor space is as gorgeous as the inside, and beckons for you to host parties or lounge the day away.  With the breathtaking views that the rooftop deck promises, you’ll be mesmerized from sunrise to sunset.
