An environmentally friendly home heated and cooled by geothermal energy with both a great view of the pond and a fantastic pool complex.
The home’s overall design was directly influenced by a variety of environmental regulations, site constraints, solar orientation, and specific programmatic requirements. The resulting home is a two-story building with a pavilion that acts as a breezeway connecting the yard and pool to the pond on the north side of the property.
The materials in the home were selected for their low maintenance, reasonable cost, durability, and sustainability. Clearstory windows provide the interior with warm daylight, which helps limit the need for air conditioning or winter heating.
The home also boasts an efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, energy efficient glazing, and an advanced building insulation system that exceeds the requirement of the energy star rating system.
The home’s landscaping is native, low maintenance, and drought resistant.
We hope you’ll enjoy this beautiful home.
