Inspiration: Naturally Cool in Croton

The current issue of Westchester Home, the quarterly produced by Westchester Magazine, includes a feature article on the Croton abode of Kathy and Steve Bluestone. Designed by Yorktown Heights architect Peter Alusitz, the home boasts energy-efficient elements such as passive solar energy and a geothermal heating and cooling system. The home's slate floors and concrete walls, besides looking rad, keep the rooms cool during the hot summer days. In fact, the 3,500 square foot house gets by without a drop of oil--and looks good doing it.

Croton is a 45 minute commute to Manhattan, so I would hardly call it "upstate". We're a northern suburb and almost all of us work in the city--and most of us moved here from the city.
