Those looking for a grand property with a plethora of sustainability credentials need look no further than this beautiful five-bedroom eco-home in Indigo Park, which is the first Platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)-certified resort community in the USA. Indigo Park is situated on Kiawah Island, a private-island real estate community located 21 miles south of Charleston, South Carolina. In fact, Indigo Park was a finalist for the 2018 Sustainable Business Award in the Community Champion Project class from the US Green Building Council.
The community features 16 properties, with four models of home plans available to choose from; each of the dwellings in Indigo Park was built with the goal of becoming LEED-certified, using the highest-grade sustainable materials known to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lessen the lasting effects on the environment.
The result is a collection of luxurious properties that are also durable and low-maintenance, designed in harmony with the natural surroundings of Kiawah Island – and thus requiring no time or money in landscaping costs. The community is situated moments away from a three-acre community park, and Kiawah Island also has its own club that residents can join (a membership is available with the purchase of this property).
The property on offer is located at 125 Halona Lane, a site that lies near the club’s private golf course, the River Course, a pristine beach and the island’s very own Sasanqua Spa. It was laid out using the Palmetto floor plan: on the ground floor are two bedrooms, an office and a large open-plan living room and kitchen. The second floor – reached either by stairs or an elevator – has three more bedrooms, including a master suite complete with a walk-in closet and a large balcony. At the back of the property, there is an expansive outdoor decking area and a private pool.
Eco-friendly features of 125 Halona Lane include geothermal heating and cooling, hurricane-rated windows with low-E glaze and insulating chambers, a front porch made using forest-certified garapa wood and a true standing-seam metal roof that comes with a 20-year coastal warranty. The garage also offers a charging point for an electric or hybrid car and space for other island transport such as bicycles and kayaks.
