The Eco Friendly Home of Danny Seo
Bucks County resident and Eco Friendly pioneer Danny Seo has just launched his newest media venture called Naturally in July. His commutes to and from New York City are becoming more frequent and therefore felt a need to reduce his carbon footprint by selling his Glass House in the Woods and move to Manhattan full time. Over the years, Danny continually made some pretty spectacular improvements to the home that took the term “Sustainable Living” to a whole new level. Let’s see what this eco-friendly home has to offer the next owner.
As a columnist and editor for Better Homes and Gardens, Country Home and a special series on HGTV, Danny Seo did his best to practice what he preached. This home over the years has been featured in magazines and spoken about on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show and The View during his appearances. The modernist style kitchen is the subject of an article in Food & Wine’s October 2014 issue. Let’s start there in the kitchen.
Kitchen Design With Green Materials
The kitchen makeover project started with glass tiles for the walls and porcelain tile for the floors that are made from 40% recycled materials. High quality stainless steel cabinets were custom designed and manufactured for this home. This laser precision craftsmanship and 100% recyclable metal cabinetry blends perfectly with Made in America appliances from Bosch. Don’t let the simplicity fool you. Danny is a gourmet cook and spared no expense in designing this space to include several pieces of professional equipment that the chef in you will enjoy. The countertops are plentiful and have an attractive walnut laminate. The refrigeration units use less electricity and offer great storage space and compliments the professional look of stainless steel wine chillers, microwave and dishwasher with water conservation built into the appliance.
Wood & Windows Invite Nature In
The floor to ceiling stone fireplace is the backdrop to the rustic living room. Don’t let Danny’s minimalist décor and throw rugs draw away too much of your attention. This room is a goldmine for those that enjoy casual comfort.
The feel of the great outdoors surrounds you with big windows everywhere. You can feel at home in this natural setting with hard wood flooring and exposed wood ceilings. The three bedrooms are just as inviting with tall ceilings and exposed wood beams. Connected are two spa like bathrooms that are also built with green materials and plumbing that takes water conservation very seriously.
The Neshaminy Creek meanders nearby this beautiful country home in Jamison Pennsylvania. The property is haven from the hustle and bustle of Philadelphia and New York but an east commute to both. It is situated on 2.8 acres and is very private. Deer and wildlife are regular visitors as you sip your morning coffee while they sip from the stream in your back yard.
Within a five minute drive is two golf courses, a natural food market, a local vineyard and of course the Wegman’s Grocery Store for the gourmet in you.
If you have school age children, the Central Bucks School district continues to garner a 10 out of a possible 10 score from GreatSchools.com and always ranked among the elite in local athletic competitions. The schools are well funded due to the higher tax bracket of the average homeowner in Central Bucks.
