Two sizeable and iconic properties in Westport, Connecticut, have been listed for sale and purchased within the past year. Westport Now reports that two homes priced over $1 million have reached closing in 2013. This is a change, as only three homes priced over that mark have sold since 2000 - one each in 2005, 2007 and 2010. 
According to the news source, home sales are up in the town of Westport and the most recently sold million-dollar house features a number of high-quality features that increase the sustainability of the property. The home in question is located at 10 Green Acre Lane and was listed at $3,425,000. 
The custom-built home includes 13 rooms and almost 6,400 square feet worth of space. The main living rooms like the master suite and bathroom have been outfitted with a radiant floor heating system. The utility option was installed in these rooms because it promotes excellent comfort without increasing costs. A homeowner in this house will never have to undergo the discomfort of waking up in the morning and walking across a cold floor. Toes are always kept warm with a radiant floor heating system.
The home was built not only for sustainability and comfort, but style as well. According to the news source, exposed antique beams grace the ceiling of the chef-grade kitchen. The hand-hewn beams match the cabinetry and complement the stone fireplace. 
For homeowners looking for both comfort, style and operational efficiency, this property and others may be the solution. A radiant floor heating system can be installed in a variety of home types and price points, so even those who don't live in million-dollar homes can benefit from this utility option.
