Famous for the Kentucky Derby, college basketball and Bourbon distilleries abound, the Louisville, KY area was recognized as the second best housing market in the country by Forbes.com. With its impressive architecture diversity from historic homes to Soho-style lofts, a fantastic park system planned by the designer of New York’s Central Park: Frederick Law Olmsted, Louisville attracts a fast-growing art, business, health tech, and cultural scene.
Located in the lovely New Urbanism development neighborhood, Norton Commons, is an all-inclusive residential area featuring classic architectural styles, a town center with retail stores, markets, and restaurants within walking distance, UberGreen Spaces & Homes built Su Verde - The Proud Green Home of Louisville. This unique 3,700 square foot, three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath, three-story house features three rooftop terraces, three ground porches/patios for a total outdoor space of 2,000 square feet, and a three car garage with dual-sided doors for hosting family events.
Every detail of this extraordinary home has been designed in compliance with the highest health, wellness and environmentally-friendly standards such as LEED, Passive House, Living Building Challenge, WELL Building Standard and DOE Zero Energy Ready Home to protect your family and the environment with an average utility-bill of approximately $13 per month.
The home isn't just designed with the environment in mind — every detail is rich with intention and purpose and created with the right-size design so that every inch in the home is efficiently and comfortably utilized. The highest modern finishes and technologies were used with Health & Wellness in mind, like triple-pane tilt-turn European windows and doors from Germany, reclaimed Kentucky horse farm fencing for hardwood floors, reclaimed Kentucky barn wood for built-ins, and non-toxic materials and finishes. And the whole house HEPA filtered fresh air system, as well as an entire house water filtration system, provide a constant source of allergen-free healthy living space.
As a bonus, the 1,300 square foot unfinished lower level with its own entrance is framed for an additional bedroom, bath, living area, and small kitchen. It could easily be used as a rental apartment or guest suite.
Su Verde is modern, beautiful, unique, caring for your health and the environment, energy-efficient, and impressive for everyone stepping foot in it.
