More than a year after a carbon-neutral Malibu-spec mansion sold for $23 million, a second home in the same developer’s eco-friendly collection hit the market for $29.5 million.
The newly completed mansion, called Zero Two, sits on two acres at 11809 Ellis Street in West Malibu and features a 170-foot-long porch, home theater, tennis court, spa and infinity pool. It also has more ecological features, such as a steam fireplace and organic fruit and vegetable gardens.
The concept is “a beautifully landscaped modern Hawaiian estate” that, like the rest of the four residences in the developer’s planned Marisol Collection, also sets a new standard for green luxury development. As well as using materials such as sustainably sourced wood and recycled concrete, the homes incorporate elements such as solar and electricity, induction cooktops and high-density cellulose insulation to achieve an overall net-zero carbon footprint.
“It only makes sense when you think about it,” said Richard Morris, principal of Crown Pointe Estates, the company that developed the range. TRD last year. “If it’s real what we’re doing and there’s a real benefit to the environment, why would anyone considering competitive housing choose anything other than zero carbon?”
At 16,500 square feet, the six-bedroom Zero Two is about 2,000 square feet larger than Zero One, which was completed in 2021 and sold last May.
The sale, $9 million below the original asking price, may be the most spectacular net-zero home sale ever.
“I think it’s been a huge success,” Scott Morris, who led the project’s development team, said at the time. “I think developers will also recognize that maybe there is a reason for them to adopt some zero-carbon strategies. That’s what we’re aiming for.”
