HERNANDO, MS., – More and more homebuyers today are turning their sights on efficient, economical and environmentally-friendly home designs and living.  In response, Crye-Leike, REALTORS – in association with Charleston Builders – is responding with a Green focused development and the launch of Phase One of a new neighborhood in Hernando, Mississippi.

Charleston Builders Developer Jim Seay and Crye-Leike, REALTORS Affiliate Brokers Ron & Nancy Guy “The Guy Team” have joined with builder Ray Denison to create and market a new environmentally friendly subdivision in Hernando named “Charleston Rowe.”  There, Developer Jim Seay says you’ll find many Green amenities came together well before the first foundation was poured.

“For the subdivision itself we’ve addressed water retention considerations, lighting and planning for several parks for homeowner’s enjoyment,” said Developer Jim Seay of Charleston Builders.  “Before we started construction of the model home we studied the topography to determine things like the concrete and cobblestone street layout and design of storm water and water retention.”

Phase One of Charleston Rowe is a 14 lot subdivision, featuring a model home currently being staged for a yet to be announced Realtor Open House event and public Grand Opening Celebration.  The model – designed by Authentic Historical Designs, LLC in Jackson, Mississippi – is a replica of a home in Charleston made with many recycled and eco-friendly materials.

“Builder Ray Denison is using 150 year old pine floors, old brick and maintenance free Hardi plank boards on the exterior,” said Ron Guy of Crye-Leike, REALTORS.  “There will be ceiling fans in almost every room, programmable thermostats, higher levels of insulation, improved Pella windows and doors and “lifetime warranted” roofing by Certainteed with copper valleys.”

With an A-Bus system for lighting control, high efficiency air conditioners Jim Seay and Ron Guy believe they’re creating a living space – indoor and out – that’s more sustainable by using no more of the natural resources than absolutely necessary.

“Something else that hasn’t been overlooked is the footprint of the house – as it relates to its exposure to the sun,” said Ron Guy of Crye-Leike. “The model has been designed to face south to enjoy light and the north side of the home has only a few windows and is protected by a partially enclosed patio. Simple considerations we believe will go a long way to make this home very environmentally friendly.”

Native landscaping to reduce water use and maintenance, Energy Star appliances, and bonuses like spacious living area and a media room help this home meet the new evolving standards homebuyers today are demanding.

“With our Green features we believe we’ve created both a home for the environmentally conscious buyer and the future of our children,” said Jim.  “It’s the right thing to do and it feels great to be helping make a difference.”
