NEWPARK / PARK CITY, UT – Hamlet Homes (www.hamlethomes.com) has announced the opening of a model home for its new energy-efficient townhome community, Nevis at Newpark in the Newpark Town Center in Park City, UT. Designed for outdoor enthusiasts and the investment-savvy homebuyer, the attractive, 1,255 sf solar townhomes provide buyers with an exclusive opportunity to live ‘green’ in the heart of the walkable, mixed-use Newpark Town Center (LEED-ND Certified*). Park City’s three world-class ski resorts – Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort and the Canyons, are just minutes away and will soon gain new prestige when resort owner, Vail, connects Park City and the Canyons in summer 2015 to create the largest ski resort in North America. Hamlet Homes broke ground on the 23 Nevis @ Newpark townhomes in September 2014 and celebrates its grand opening March 21-22, 2015. Healthy presales have resulted in 10 townhomes sold to date. Hamlet Homes President John Aldous notes that the townhome’s modern design, energy-efficient features, and exceptional location and views make it a very attractive option for home buyers. “The Nevis at Newpark townhomes are ideal as an energy-efficient primary residence, a second home or as rental property,” said Aldous. “The proximity to outstanding winter and summer recreation opportunities, the convenience of a walkable neighborhood with restaurants, shopping and services, plus miles of walking, running and biking trails that begin just steps away at the Swaner Eco Center, make Nevis at Newpark a rare find.” Energy efficiencies at Nevis include 1.5 KW solar panels (well-concealed in a rooftop terrace) that average 25% of each townhome’s energy load, central air with a 13 Seer rating, programmable set- back thermostat, 92% high-efficiency furnace, a tankless water heater, Toto toilets, Low-E windows and Energy Star® appliances. Further efficiencies are gained using 2×6” exterior walls with R-23 blown-in insulation and R-48/R-60 blown-in insulation in the ceilings. Each home receives a green building certification under the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard. NAHB and the ICC partnered to establish a nationally recognized standard of residential green building. The ICC 700 National Green Building Standard® is the first and only residential green building rating system to undergo the full consensus process and receive approval from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The Nevis floor plan has two master bedroom / bathroom suites on the upper level and a third bath with shower on the family room level. Interior features include rounded wall corners, satin nickel hardware, Whirlpool appliances, quartz countertops, and a gas fireplace. The rooftop terrace, perfect for adding a hot tub for après-ski and stargazing, offers stunning views of the slopes and canyons at Deer Valley and Park City Ski Resorts. Pre-wired with Control4 technology, the townhomes provide buyers with the flexibility to program in Smart Home features such as remote access to door locks, lighting, video distribution, and surveillance capabilities. Townhomes are immediately available for presale. For further information and to schedule a tour, contact Phil Mosher at Hamlet Homes, 801-865-3000.
