540 Madison Ct., Sarasota, FL 34236

Whether Earth Day is the only day of the year you ever think about environmental issues, or you think about the environment all the time, you should know about Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design. The LEED certification process weighs a number of building criteria—including environmental impact, water and energy consumption, and construction materials—to bestow silver, gold, or, the most prestigious, platinum certificates.

We dipped our toes into the green pool of listings nationwide to locate 14 LEED-certified homes where the energy bills are low, but the curb appeal is sky-high.
