In our latest tour of Echo Spur, Old Town’s seven home, mountain modern development on Rossie Hill, we were blown away by the comprehensive and seamless integration of sustainable features into some of the finest contemporary architecture we have ever seen.
Home building technology has changed rapidly over the past decade: “Sustainable” and “Green” have become the mantras of modern homes, but the systematic integration of these features sets these homes apart. The developer’s research into sustainable technologies focused on energy efficiency features that improve quality of life and - here’s what’s new – result in significant cost savings in operating the home.
The savvy homebuyer understands that the cost of purchasing a home is separate from the cost of owning a home (mortgage, utilities, maintenance, etc.). Echo Spur’s sustainability strategy is optimized to reduce the cost of ownership by driving down the utility bills. That said, Echo Spur is designed from the ground up with the very best of proven green features from around the world. These single family homes boast cisterns, green roofs, super insulation, tank-less toilets, etc... Homebuyers will pay 80% less than the average Park City homeowner on utility bills, while benefiting from the significant health benefits of green features.
Echo Spur’s team (GoWest Development, Lacroix Design, and Heliocentric) have given thought to every detail and woven-in tech capabilities that are simple to use but provide a significant improvement in quality of life. For example, the heating and cooling system is paired to a weather app and automatically begins a warming cycle in response to an approaching storm. You don’t do anything—you just enjoy the perfect temperature.
Beyond the green and smart home amenities, we can’t say enough in favor of the design of these single family homes. Open floor plans with walls of glass, folding glass doors that open onto spacious decks, functional kitchens, expansive gathering spaces, smartly planned closet spaces: these homes are just done right. And, the views are killer.
Buyers get the highest building quality attainable, the satisfaction that “going Green” means saving money as well as carbon energy, and the innumerable financial benefits that come with owning a sustainable home. Beyond their unique features, these homes offer luxurious contemporary construction in the heart of Park City’s Old Town, walking access to Main St., and some of the best views in the town.
