Cypress Development broke ground today on the second phase of Sterling at Silverleaf, bringing 12 luxury estate villas priced from $2.2 million to the private golf community of Silverleaf.
The new $27.6 million second phase will be built to the same gold-level LEED certified standards as the sold-out first phase of 16 villas. Sterling at Silverleaf made national headlines in 2012 when it was named Arizona’s first and only single-family new construction project to be awarded gold-level certification by the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), making the villas the greenest homes in Arizona. Just this month, the U.S. Green Building Council also awarded the project gold-level LEED certification
“We are changing the way our industry builds luxury homes and proving there is a way to create the ultimate in green, luxury living,” said Nathan Day, president of Cypress Development Group. “Demand has been high since we announced the second phase at Sterling because our product is so unique to the marketplace. This is about building smart, innovative homes that provide a real value for our buyers.”
Sterling’s estate villas offer three different floor plans of two-story homes ranging from 3,980 to 4,800 square feet with an attached cabana or casita with a private entrance. The three and four-bedroom villas come standard with top-of-the-line custom estate features such as Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, exotic stone countertops, natural stone and marble floors, custom cabinetry, custom hand-forged iron stair railing, 9’ ceilings in second story, a full masonry fireplace, a private two or three-car garage, a game room with a mini bar, professionally designed walk-in closets, his and hers bathroom vanities, a Jacuzzi bathtub in the master bathroom and a climate controlled wine room.
All 12 estate villas are being built at once with completion expected in late 2014.
Four iPads are installed throughout each villa that control the home automation and security systems providing the ability to remotely control every element within the home such as audio, video, lighting, window coverings, security and wine room temperature. Sterling at Silverleaf also developed a proprietary Eco-Mode App with Crestron, which dims the lighting in the home to 80 percent of full power levels, automatically saving 20 percent on the energy bill.
