Granite counter tops and open layouts are not the only must-haves in homes for the upwardly mobile urban professional. These days professionals looking to buy homes in San Diego urban areas seek sleek design and along witheco-design features like, solar power and decor with renewable or repurposed materials. Sofia Living offers up all of this in stylish and conscious community of row homes in Golden Hills. Golden Hills is one of San Diego’s urban gems that is full of wonderful culture that can be enjoyed on foot, bike or car. It is located just east of downtown’s East Village and I-5 and just south of Balboa Park.
Golden Hills offers a unique, colorful culture that is hip and young at heart. Having been gentrified in recent years, the historic area attracts people with a walkable neighborhood chalked full of cute shops and restaurants as well as pubs and eateries. Homebuyers who have outgrown their downtown lofts and apartments will find that Golden Hills offers more living space and a more residential sprawl while maintaining easy access to downtown an urban community feel.
The row homes were developed with this hybrid lifestyle in mind where the 20 detached row homes, all with 2-car garages, offer spacious living where 10 of the homes the entire 3rd floor and private balcony is dedicated to the master living quarters. Many units offer dual-masters as well. The development will offer modern finishes and eco elements including solar power options. Home Energy Systems was chosen to provide the solar design and installation of the project for our high producing systems and quality of work. In addition to solar power, the development will feature tankless water heaters, high SEER rated air conditioner units, cool roof systems, high R-value insulation, Energy Star appliances and water-conservation landscaping. Energy efficiency has become quite a trend in building development these days and for our environments sake, we hope it’s here to stay.
The built-in solar options in the new Sofia Living development offer home buyers the option to roll the cost of the solar into their home financing which in turn, allows them to virtually destroy their electric bill. Once the math is done, the mortgage with the solar system, factoring in the electricity savings, is less than the mortgage and electric bill combined in units that do not take advantage of the available solar power options. The San Diego solar company will be offering a range of solar options for up to 4kW systems featuring SunPower solar panels (highest rated panels on the market) and Solar Edge system monitoring. Residents of the Golden Hill row homes can not only enjoy electricity powered by the Sun but they can also rest assured that H.E.S. will monitoring their solar system around the clock to make sure their power flow and enjoyment of the property is seamless.
Pre-sales of this urban eco-savvy development are underway and Home Energy Systems representatives will be on site to answer questions about solar power needs for any prospective buyer. To find out when an H.E.S. representative will be on-site contact INFO@SOFIALIVING.COM
