Location: San Antonio, Texas
Price: $1,200,000
A 2009 San Antonio home with a rainwater-harvesting capabilities, rooftop solar panels, and geothermal heating was put on the market earlier this week. The sustainability-focused three-bedroom dwelling is the work of Lake Flato Architects, whose body of unfussy residential work is marked by light steel-and-glass walls with large sliding doors and sloped roofs with large overhangs.

This home comes heavy on the limestone, with a lot of wood-paneling on the inside. A lofted study area with built-ins of white oak sits above the combined kitchen and dining room. On the other side of the stone block containing the fireplace is an outdoor barbecue, with a shaded seating area nearby.

With 3,655 square feet of livable space and a pool set on 2.31 acres shaped by drought-tolerant landscaping, the home is priced at $1.2M.
