Lennar Introduces New Energy-Efficient Homes at Terraza in San Elijo Hills as Phase 1 Sales Begin
Lennar is introducing its first solar PowerSmart package of energy-saving features in San Diego County at Terraza, a new neighborhood of two-story homes in San Elijo Hills, an ecologically sensitive community where 18 miles of hiking/biking trails weave through 1,100 acres of open space.
Terraza at San Elijo Hills offers three distinctive floor plans, ranging from 2,182 to 2,721 square feet, with three to five bedrooms and a diverse range of architecture that reflects Spanish Colonial, French Country, Craftsman and Prairie styles. The homes are anticipated to be priced from the upper $500,000s. The sale of homes in Phase 1 will commence April 24.
Offered as a standard feature, the PowerSmart package includes an array of energy-saving amenities, such as a solar electric system, tankless water heater, enhanced insulation, new generation low-E glass, water-conserving toilets, faucets and shower heads, energy-efficient lighting, insulated air ducts and other construction innovations.
A variety of high quality appointments include gourmet-inspired kitchens with stainless-steel GE Profile appliances, granite countertops, Category 5 high-speed wiring, and surround sound speakers.
Terraza models are scheduled to open in June. The sales office is located at Wild Canyon Road and Festival Way in San Marcos.
