Want to own a super-small home with the latest green tech? Then bid fast on this 540-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bathroom unit.

Solar panels, electric blinds, efficient bathroom fixtures that conserve water and a toilet lid that rises as you step inside are just some of the many perks this Pearl Homes prototype dwelling—don't dare call it a tiny home!—has to offer. It also has a battery storage system to generate backup power and operate off the grid. (You can see it in action here.) It's Pearl Homes' first house with a net-zero carbon footprint to be fully certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and it's the prototype for the homebuilder's most recent project, Hunters Point, in Cortez. 

All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Manatee Boys & Girls Club, which provides families with affordable programming to keep kids active, social and learning. Pearl Homes president and founder Marshall Gobuty is a former foundation board member.

Sold fully furnished and decorated, the home is the perfect additional dwelling unit to add to an existing house for extra rental income, grow your home into a multi-generational living space, or simply establish a live-work getaway.

Bid amounts will be displayed, but bidders' names will remain anonymous. The winner is responsible for moving and setting up the home on their property. 

Register to bid on the home here through 1 p.m., July 22.
