Clipper Avenue

Featured in the San Francisco Chronicle’s Earth Day special, this luxury single family home designed by John Maniscalco/Architecture is located in desirable Noe Valley. The house incorporates the very latest in Green Building methods and materials, including the first approved rainwater catchment system in San Francisco, new Ultra-Touch® Recycled “blue jean” insulation and hardwood flooring reclaimed from 100-year-old railroad ties. Solar panels power the entire house and then some, and hydronic radiant heating keeps the home cozy in the winter months without incurring fuel costs.

In addition to smart and green, this lovely home is designed and built for the discriminating buyer – with wine cellar, 2 car s/s parking, gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances and sweeping north and east bay views. High ceilings and skylights provide an open, light-filled living space.
