A home built by the infamous architect Mickey Muennig, who is known for building homes partially buried into land, has been listed as for sale. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that home is conservative in style compared to Muennig's usual designs. This home is partially built into the hillside, but also features plenty of open areas with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. 
"The windows above the living room are one of my favorite features of the house," said John Saar of Sotheby's International Realty, who is listing the home for $2.995 million, according to the news source. "The stars shine over the home at night. It gives you a wonderful feeling of continued light."
The great windows that span from the floors to the ceilings allow natural light to flood the living areas and brings the outdoors in. Views of the hillside and the ocean and the stone fireplace inside the home makes the transition from the two spaces seamless, according to the news source.
Built in the 1970s, this four-bedroom house has been outfitted with additional technologies and materials to increase the sustainability of the property. Elegant concrete floors are a rich color, durable and allow the radiant floor heating system to run effectively. The eco-friendly heating solution will allow a homeowner to feel warm and comfortable regardless of the weather just outside his or her expansive windows. 
Radiant floor heating is an ideal solution for those who are looking to buy a luxury home or one that is in the suburbs. The utility solution allows a homeowner to reduce operational expenses and increases the control he or she has over the temperature of the air in the house.
