The newly constructed 4564 19th St. in Eureka Valley is the first passive house to hit the market in San Francisco. Dubbed the Equilibrium House, the home was built to Passive House (Passivhaus) standards, a sustainable building method that’s incredibly popular in Germany. A passive house is able to achieve up to 90 percent heating energy reductions over typical homes through a combination of construction techniques, super insulation and high performance European windows and doors that aren’t currently available in the U.S. The 4-bed, 5.5-bath home recently hit the market at $3.8M, and after a successful open house is already in contract. · 4564 19th St. [Official website] [Photos via Open Home Photography]
