The neighborhood is unique. By creating a neighborhood of sustainable, high performing, exceptional quality homes we are able to preserve and support the added value of sustainability, because we are surrounding each with comparable homes, instead of the occasional one-off in typical neighborhoods. The original 24 acre parcel of Brickhouses Road was developed to respect and enhance the original contours of the land, to help alleviate some drainage issues for the nearby existing neighbors, and to recreate to native habitat that had been displace by farming. All the comforts of city living, only 5 miles from the campus and hospitals, but the atmosphere is calming, peaceful, spacious, natural, precious. The geothermal requirement for homes means that the summer days and nights are not disturbed by whining air conditioners, the requirement for raised front porches lends a note of unassuming, gentle grandeur, but also provides a perch for you to enjoy the wonders of nature unfolding across the street as well as to bring a sense of community in the structure of "the New Urbanism" movement. The custom homes of Brickhouses Road will also embody the design principles of "Biophilic Design" which help you feel healthier, and you can also learn about the benefits of the "Endless Summer Circadian Sunroom" at the model. Clearly better homes, a better environment, a very special place.
