2446 NW Dorion Way Bend OR -- LEED Platinum Green-built home for saleIt isn’t every day I list a property like
2446 NW Dorion Way
in Bend’s NorthWest Crossing. But then, it isn’t every day that anyone lists a property like this one — there are only a handful of homes like it in Central Oregon.

One thing that makes this home so special (and it is, in fact, extremely special) is that it’s LEED Platinum-certified. That means it has achieved the global benchmark of high-performance green-building standards. By attaining this prestigious level of LEED certification, it can be counted among the greenest buildings in the world.

So not only does the home generate much of its own power and hot water, but it was designed for more healthier living using as many renewable resources as possible. Best of all, it was designed by the homeowner, architect ML Vidas, whose goal wasn’t just to create something that was “green,” but to also create something that was beautiful and comfortable. And in that she has succeeded –- the home she designed for herself and her husband, Allan Staley, is indeed a beautiful, very livable residence that is a reflection of its Central Oregon surroundings.

For a closer look, check out the video tour below, hosted by owner/architect ML Vidas:

Compass Gardens will consist of ten, detached, single family homes in a unique location within the planned community of NorthWest Crossing.
