This is a pretty great use of plastic bottles. An eco-friendly house in Nova Scotia that's up for sale is made from recycled plastic bottles and it's the first of its kind. Plus, it's less than $500,000!
The 1,806 square foot bungalow on 39 Sunset Lane sits on 5,920 square feet of land and has 1.46 acres of ocean frontage.
So not only is it an eco-friendly home but you also get a great view of natural wonders from inside and outside of it.
Plus, it's listed for $490,000.
Since it's made from 612,000 recycled plastic bottles, it has a life expectancy of more than 250 years.
"It's both exciting and rewarding to represent a home that puts green efficiency first. It's not just a house, it's an entire concept," said James Dwyer, real estate advisor with Engel & Völkers Halifax, in a news release. "The biggest selling points are its functionality and durability. It’s fire, hurricane, mould and mildew resistant, as well as energy-efficient. This type of home is a rarity in Halifax, especially at this price point."
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms in this bungalow.
In the master bedroom, one beautiful sliding barn door opens up to an ensuite bathroom while another opens to a walk-in closet.

Large windows give lots of natural sunlight and warmth which actually creates passive solar heating.
With an open concept design in the main living space, you can see from the kitchen through to the dining room, living room and the ocean beyond it.
The entire property has been landscaped to give breathtaking views of the ocean.
From this stunning, eco-friendly bungalow, you'd have direct access to the water so you don't just get to look at the ocean.
You can head on out to it whenever you want.
