Come see the model home at Sun Ridge in Issaquah Highlands! This community features 35 contemporary homes that will all have 3.24 KW of solar, thus the name Sun Ridge. The solar power is one of the many green features in the community.
The development is low impact featuring three rain gardens to infiltrate roof and street rainwater run-off with many of the homes stormwater drains connecting to the infiltration system that recharges the groundwater supply and recharges the East Fork of Issaquah Creek. The site and community park are irrigated with 100% reclaimed rainwater, with no potable water used for irrigation. Also, the site was part of a mass land swap that allowed development of our 4.28 acres while permanently preserving 90 acres in another part of Issaquah.
The homes are Built Green 5-Star rated, far exceeding the minimum 500 points; averaging 648. In addition, homes will have in-floor radiant heating & 98% efficient on demand boiler, higher R value and air tightness, water saving appliances and plumbing fixtures, LED lighting and an Energy Star appliance package.
It's a truly unique community to the Pacific Northwest. We look forward to your visit!
