The project fills a niche market of dense housing that retains a single-family home scale and appeal. Located on a tenth of an acre lot, the site design crafted a private side yard that provides ample space for leisure, entertainment, and a landscape designed to be as edible as possible. Contrary to current development practices, the developer has proven high levels of sustainability can be achieved without breaking the bank. The nearly 2,000 sf home features a 3-kilowatt solar PV array, plumbing fixtures that will reduce water usage by 50%, energy star appliances, Cree and Eco-Smart LED lighting as well as a 20 SEER variable speed heat pump with energy recovery ventilation, and Low-E Laminated glass windows resulting in a home using nearly 70% less energy than a typical house.
