The home even features a natural gas-powered electric generator, which Hall joked is there to support the few energy needs that can still be met only with electricity.

Hall arrived at the Carrington Lakes home driving an ONG-branded compressed natural gas vehicle so he could show off the CNG filling station. Reeves said the unit delivers “about a gallon an hour,” allowing for an easy, overnight fill up.

Fowler Honda, whose CNG-powered Civic GX is the only factory-produced non-fleet vehicle of its type produced in the United States, partnered with Landmark and ONG on the concept home.

Entering the home, visitors are greeted by an expansive living room and formal dining room that flow from the foyer. A study inside the front door features built-in bookcases under a vaulted, wood-plank ceiling.

A wall of windows connects the family room — with its cathedral ceiling — and the bright chef's kitchen to the covered patio that Reeves aptly called an outdoor living room.

Two children's bedrooms are linked via a children's living room (convertible to a third bedroom).

The master suite features an exposed brick interior wall and a soaring ceiling. In the adjacent bath is an elevated tub surrounded with custom tile.

Upstairs the home features a family recreation room and theater-media room.

“We make sure there's something unique in every room in every home we build,” said Amy Reeves, Dan's wife and design partner.

Landmark Fine Homes was named “America's Best Builder” in 2012 by the National Association of Home Builders' Builder Magazine. The home is open from 1 to 6 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Mondays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays.
