'Eco-Friendly' Florida Mansion
Have you heard about the 'Eco-Friendly' Florida Mansion? Well, a local developer wants $29 million dollars for this 15,000 square-foot mansion that was built using Ecological methods. Everything is Eco-friendly, the design is luxurious, agreeable and fashionable, combining every single detail into a splendorous vacation resort.
Frank McKinney is a developer in Florida, and he likes to engage into large projects, just like this one. He has built what he calls an "Eco-mansion" at 620 South Ocean Boulevard on Manalapan Beach in Florida. If you find yourself in the area, you can go for a visit.
The 15,000-square-foot mansion is placed on 1.6 acres of land and it's probably inspired by architecture found in Tahiti, Fiji, Bali and Hawaii. Although most posts on the Internet refer to it as "Eco-Friendly Florida Mansion", Mr. McKinney named it "Acqua Liana," which is the Tahitian word for "water flower".
The mansion was build using special renewable materials like bamboo, teak, coconut and palm wood. According to Mr. McKinney, the total amount of reclaimed wood used in this Eco-mansion saved more than 105 acres of rain forest.
The Eco-house has energy-efficient light fixtures, solar panels and a grass driveway. It also uses fly ash and a product from coal-fired power plants found in the concrete walls and foundation.
The Eco-Mansion has seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, two elevators, two laundry rooms, and a movie theater, pictured in the following image.
One room in this house has an astonishing floor, made from bubbling water, glass and glowing LED lights. When you step on the floor, you feel like stepping into the world of "Pandora" from Avatar.
The house includes a 2,000-gallon saltwater aquarium above the wet bar that will bring a glimpse of life into the room.
