Energy Efficiency Puts Home Builder on Map in Jefferson County
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (April 1, 2014) – Brookfield Residential, the builder that established the ‘Home Evolved’ concept in the Midtown at Clear Creek neighborhood last year, has now brought its energy-efficient technologies to the Solterra community in Lakewood.
Brookfield recently began taking orders at its temporary office in the club house at Solterra. Home buyers can get in line for homes that Brookfield expects to have available for move-in by this fall, with prices starting at $449,880.
“We believe these homes will inject an element into the Jefferson County market that buyers have never seen before,” said Brookfield General Manager Perry Cadman. “Home buyers in that area now have an option for significant energy efficiency at a price and value previously unimagined.”
He explained that Brookfield attains the unique combination of energy efficiency, design, quality and comfort at reasonable prices by virtue of the Englewood-based company’s emphasis on building science.
Brookfield’s new homes in Solterra will have certified energy efficiency scores (called Home Energy Rating System or HERS scores) far superior to ordinary homes built to strict “code” standards. Brookfield achieves those superior scores via better insulation, modern windows and climate retention; plus energy-efficient appliances, furnaces and water heaters.
Additionally, the new Brookfield homes at Solterra will feature the same emphasis on “seamless indoor and outdoor living,” with attractive patios, wrap-around courtyards, and extra windows for great views of nearby Green Mountain. The “Residence One” model at Solterra will include a main-floor master bedroom and optional roof-top deck.
Brookfield offers six different floor plans, between 1,785 and 2,158 square feet. The first models are expected to be ready for tours by this fall. To pre-purchase a Brookfield home at Solterra, call 720-288-7299, or go to www.BrookfieldResidentialCo.com.
