If you've every though that going green means sacrificing certain luxuries, think again.
A handful of new houses just popped up in Charlottesville, and they're green and luxurious.

"It's in the city part of the Belmont neighborhood and it also feels like you're out in the mountains" said Architect Andrew Thomas.

Amenities include granite counter tops, skylights, and hard wood floors. All five houses were build to be clean inside and out, and to reflect the nature around them.

"I think there are people that would find that important and would want to participate in being kind to our planet" said Home Builder Dale Abrahamse.

Abrahamse also says that skylights and windows around the house will likely cut down your electricity bill.
