Built in 2014, 327 has 1080 light-filled square feet. This two-story, well insulated home has large triple pane windows that supply plenty of light throughout the day. The home’s Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) ensures constant fresh air exchange in the interior. There are two solar systems; the main solar system provides energy for the house and the second system provides hot water. The home also features newly-installed (2020) three Mitsubishi mini-splits that provide heat, air conditioning, and dehumidification: heat is provided when the outside temperature is as low as –14 degrees F. Also newly installed in 2020 are 3 new ceiling fans and insulated shades on the south-facing windows that give you control of the amount of heat entering the home.
The first floor includes a mud room, kitchen, dining & living space, half bath, and 2 large storage areas. The first floor has engineered hardwood floors and tile in the half bath and mud room. The kitchen, which is very well designed, has upgraded cabinets, a pantry, a large center island, and a newly installed backsplash.
The second-floor features 2 bedrooms, a hall bath (that is also connected to the larger bedroom), and a bonus area. The bedrooms have large windows, good sized walk-in closets, and ceiling fans. The second floor has hardwood floors and a tile floor in the bathroom.
Outside, this home has a covered front porch and plenty of garden space or room for children to play.
327 is located in TREE, the newest of the three neighborhoods in EcoVillage at Ithaca (EVI).
