Listing Description

An amazing opportunity in Brewerytown presents itself in this hand-crafted duplex. This property integrates rigorous, high performance home detailing with modern conveniences and is the first project in Philadelphia attempting to achieve The U.S. Department of Energy's Zero Energy Ready Homes standard (certification pending). This unique, contemporary, highly sustainable project utilizes an integrated design process and energy modeling to optimize deeper insulation, solar orientation, high performance windows, airtight construction, and balanced mechanical ventilation to provide a beautiful, thermally comfortable, and vastly energy efficient home. Unit 1 contains two bedrooms, one full and one half bathroom, and a large patio. Unit 2 (upper unit) is solar ready, with conduit run for a future rooftop solar PV array and contains two bedrooms, one bathroom and balcony space. Both units have warm hardwood flooring and a dedicated laundry area. The exterior is comprised of sleek aluminum and steel. The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a standard new home is awarded a rating of 100. Without solar PV the lower unit's target HERS Index Score is 45, and the upper unit's is 44. If PV is added the upper unit's HERS Index Score is modeled to drop to 23. A home with a HERS Index Score of 23 therefore could be 77% more energy efficient than a standard new home. As a primary residence or an investment property, this home has been designed to provide benefits now and well into the future. A 10-year tax abatement has been tentatively approved. This developing neighborhood is in high demand and convenient to University City, Fairmount Park, major highways, Septa routes and is a quick commute to Center City.
