We visited 709-711 Westbourne Drive in West Hollywood, a two-unit townhouse, when it opened for sales last November. But this upscale, eco-luxury development is facing the same fate experienced by all those other eco-luxury developments: Upscale green is a damn hard sale. Not everyone is Ed Begley, Jr. and not everyone is a millionaire. So these homes have been chopped, well, shaved, from their $1.89 million listing (there are two units.). One is now listed at $1.695 million and the other is listed at $1.795 million. On the plus side, there are solar panels on the roof, white bamboo floors, tankless water heaters, and the fanciest toilet you've seen: It's a Japanese toilet with an automatic seat lift and an "air dry feature." Scary.
