Custom-built for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining, this contemporary has an industrial vibe with polished concrete floors, 12-foot ceilings and a floating-style stainless steel staircase. For the ecologically minded, there are two electric-car chargers in the garage. Solar hot water, radiant heat and electricity provide energy savings.
