Hi there,

With the winter heating bills ramping up, it got us thinking about eco-homes and wondering what's out there.

This eco-home in Canterbury has geothermal heating and 360 degree views of the Southern Alps, Lake Ellesmere and Mt Herbert – it's also awesome to look at.

If you're looking further north, this log house in Huia is cool too. The logs were harvested using Clydesdale horses and it's an impressive fusion between traditional building and modern eco technologies.

Whatever you're after, there's plenty to choose from on Trade Me Property.
