Eagles Pointe-New Home with a Green Twist

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Eagles Pointe in Prince William County
My previous posts about Eagles Pointe in Prince William County looked at the commuting convenience of the community, current value in the community and the community amenities.

Eagles Pointe is also the site of K Hovnanian "demonstration" home to showcase materials that are not only environmentally friendly but also will provide up to 40% energy savings over a conventional home.

 

 

Eagles Pointe Demonstration Home
The home features Energy Star appliances, spray foam insulation and high efficiency heating and cooling systems.  One interesting addition is a tankless water heater and a water distribution system where each faucet in the home is connected to separately to the water heater.

K. Hovnanian estimates these improvements could save homeowners close to $1700 a year in utility bills.
  With more homeowners thinking about energy savings and opportunities to "go green" this LEED certified home provides the opportunity to take an up close look at new home building features.  A portion of the basement in the home on of the property is a demonstration center where visitors can learn more about the solar energy and see how walls were framed and the closed cell insulation was installed.

Eagles Pointe Club HouseEven though driving through the neighborhood you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the demonstration house and the others on the street but when you start to add up the annual cost savings you begin to appreciate the difference.

Tours of the home are by appointment only and can be arranged through K Hovnanian by calling 703-580-9942.

Indeed.  KHovanian is one of my favorite builders.  I got a demonstration of their environmentally advantageous homes in Frederick County, MD.  I'm closing on one next Tuesday.  Wonderful effective utility cost savings features for home owners are now standard features for this builder at no additional charges.

Lenn-KHonvanian has done well with Eagles Pointe and they are one of five builders in the area that are building demonstration homes.  It is so much easier to build green than retrofit green so these projects are a move in the right direction.

Margaret-I've been paying a lot more attention to the various green projects in our area over the last year.  I posted about the Fort Belvoir's Green Projects a little while ago too.

Sharon-as more consumers understand the benefits of energy efficient homes the builders who are providing them will reap the benefits of more sales.

Anna-with the heat in Phoenix and all the great sun taking advantage of solar is the way to go.  When I lived in AZ our pool was solar heated by a series of tubes installed in the deck.

Mary-it today's environmentally conscious world everything we do can have a positive impact.  I've wondered for awhile why builders weren't stepping up and now they are.  Hopefully this will become the norm instead of a "demonstration" for all soon.
