As the youngest generation of homebuyers, Generation Y or Millennials, are seeking out homes that reflect both their personal beliefs and individual style. In the Lowcountry, Millennials and firsttime homebuyers have two new eco-friendly, solar, and Wi-Fi certified smart communities designed with them inmind: SeaAire on James Island and Hamlin Oaks in Mount Pleasant.
Designed around the beauty and energy of sand and surf, Sea Aire on James Island is a close-knit, sustainable, solar community near Folly Beach. Sea Aire’s amenities include a community fire pit with green space, walking trails, playground, and solar panels on every home. In addition, native plantings, bioswales that filter storm water runoff, pervious grass pavers that drain rainwater and filter out pollutants, and preserved grand oak trees connect residents to their surrounding environment while also helping preserve it. Homes at Sea Aire start in the mid $300s.
Located just five minutes from the waves and laidback vibe of Folly Beach – and just 15 minutes from downtown Charleston – SeaAire boasts great nearby shopping and dining options, including Smoky Oak Taproom, the Bohemian Bull, and Brick House Kitchen. And, it’s close to area schools, like James Island Elementary, Middle, and High Schools. Sea Aire’s Charleston single-style homes are a proud part of Lennar’s Everything’s Included® program – wildly popular with buyers looking to get the most value for their hard-earned money. Everything’s Included means just that: all the most sought-after extras and add-ons, stainless steel appliances, upgraded cabinetry, granite countertops, subway tile backsplash, and HardiePlank® exterior– are included in the price of your home.
Like the community itself, homes at Sea Aire have an array of eco-friendly features, like solar panels on every home, Environments for Living™ Energy Efficient Certified Builder Individual home testing, energy efficient Tankless Rannai® hot water heater, radiant barrier roof sheathing, 14 SEER energy efficient heating and central air conditioning systems with programmable thermostat, low E insulated vinyl single hung windows, foam caulking around exterior doors and windows, energy efficient insulation (R30 in ceiling, R13 in walls), LED recessed can lighting in kitchen and hallways, and more.
