Nathan Good Vineyard Estate – Oregon Luxury Home

A LEED Platinum Oregon Luxury Home

High on a Yamhill, Oregon hilltop overlooking a 40-acre working vineyard, the Nathan Good Vineyard Estate is a very special Oregon luxury home. Every aspect of the plan incorporated three goals:  respect for the environment, homage to the beautiful setting of the vineyard, and comfort of the residents and guests of the vineyard. Long before the groundbreaking, architect Nathan Good, and the vineyard owners began planning for the home site and future winery on the property.  A select team of contractors was assembled, to be led by one of the top green builders in the region, Shan Stassens of Winsome Construction. The home was completed in February 2013 and received LEED Platinum certification, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, from The United States Green Building Council. This Oregon luxury home is targeted to be LEED platinum, the highest certification for LEED projects, and is designed to be a Net Zero home, producing energy equivalent or in excess of its usage.
