SOLEIL HOMES unveiled
Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate recently unveiled Eagle’s newest housing development — Soleil Homes at Brush Creek.
The project features single family homes in a central location, featuring beautiful views and a first-of-its-kind private neighborhood designed with energy efficiency in mind.
Soleil Homes by Wynton Homes, located south of the Eagle Pool & Ice Rink, will begin development soon. Just steps from the tennis courts, golf course, the town’s recreation space and a short walk from downtown, Soleil Homes offer up convenience and affordability. Each home will receive its own independent certification from a nationally recognized energy rating program to bring down monthly payments on utility bills, offering something that the valley has never seen before.
“Soleil Homes will be a first-of-its kind subdivision built anywhere in the valley that offers each homeowner a guarantee of superior energy efficiency,” said John Purchase, developer of Soleil Homes. “Every home will be inspected and certified by an Independent Energy Auditor and homes will be anywhere from 30-70 percent more efficient than a typical resale home.”
Soleil Homes were designed with low maintenance living in mind with features such as HOA maintained yards, smaller floor plans and open great rooms leading to outdoor living spaces. There are a total of 32 homes in the development, starting .around $600,000, each with easy access to the biking and walking trails throughout Eagle.
“We are extremely excited to offer a new product in Eagle which is a great addition to the community,” said Kim Bradley, listing broker for Soleil Homes. “Inventory is low and there is nothing brand new available to single family home buyers in this price range.”
The first phase of sales offers seven homes and began on June 12, 2014. For more information about Soleil Homes please contact Kim Bradley at firstname.lastname@example.org, (970)376-5814 or Jay Peterson at email@example.com, (970)333-3398.
