“In this age where energy costs and usage are more of a concern than ever, and all of us are trying to find ways to help the environment, it is exciting to offer a high-end home that incorporates multiple ideas for energy savings and sustainability.  In 25 years of selling in the Evergreen area, I have not encountered a home that has been built in a manner so sensitive to these issues,” said Davenport.

Four core criteria at the foundation of a sustainable green home include long life cycle, ease of maintenance, sustainable green design and building practices, and compatibility with the local mountain environment. The exquisite design and attention to such criteria in this home make it highly desirable for buyers seeking a sustainable lifestyle, coupled with turnkey luxury in an unmatched location.

The Ensar Group and Winegard and Associates were tasked to perform architectural duties for the home, joined by Summit Structural Engineers and Douglas Engineering, who collectively brought the Yearsley’s vision to fruition. The outcome is a one-of-a-kind property that offers an abundance of green features including unique passive and active energy efficiencies resulting in low home operating costs. The average monthly electricity cost ranges from $105-$127 dollars, while the natural gas expense is approximately $110 to $132. Depending on a buyer’s individual lifestyle, the home also has the potential to operate without purchasing any electricity off the grid.
