Description: This 2002 contemporary was built to high "green" standards, and its energy-saving credentials include passive solar, which absorbs the sun's heat during the day and releases it at night to warm interiors. The construction utilized sustainable wood products, energy and water-saving, plumbing designs and high-efficiency appliances.

The home's large rooms incorporate reclaimed antique wood that had been underwater for 300 years. The baths and kitchen feature natural stone and tile.

But besides being so earth friendly, the house is also striking. It has a high cathedral ceiling in its great room where there's also a stone fireplace and ceiling fan. There's a double oven and six burner range in the kitchen, and clawfoot tub and double pedestal sinks in the master bath.

It's set on a half acre lot a few hundred feet from Lake Tashmoo, which is actually an arm of the sea that rises and falls with the tides. There's a narrow inlet through the sandy beach to Vineyard Sound.
