Brooksville, Fla. (August 22, 2012) – GreenPointe Homes was recently honored with an Aurora award in the 2012 Aurora Awards competition, a Southeast Building Conference design competition. GreenPointe Homes won for its Pinemore model home in the Brooksville master-planned residential community of Southern Hills Plantation in the category of detached single-family home.

The Pinemore, designed by BSB Design, is a four-bedroom, three-bathroom floor plan featuring a spacious second level bonus room with full bath and open balcony overlooking the 14th fairway of the Pete Dye Signature Golf Course. The interior and exterior living spaces of The Pinemore were designed by award-winning design firm Sisler Johnston Interior Design.

“It is an incredible honor to have been recognized with an Aurora award,” said Roger Postlethwaite, president of GreenPointe Homes. “We aim to provide the best quality of design and construction in all of our homes and hope this recognition will encourage everyone to visit Southern Hills Plantation to learn more about GreenPointe Homes and our outstanding residences.”

The Pinemore spans almost 3,000 square feet of comfortable and flexible living space and features a stunning 41-foot covered lanai with a summer kitchen which offers outdoor living at its finest. The indoor kitchen features designed cabinetry with granite countertops, spacious island and GE appliances including a gas range/self-cleaning oven combo, microwave and Energy Star rated-dishwasher. The home’s two-car garage also includes additional flexible space that could be used for a golf cart, home office or hobby room. The Pinemore is priced at $324,000.

A component of every GreenPointe Home’s residence is the Intelligent Green program, which constructs a home with technology and energy saving features that make the greatest impact on the operating costs of home ownership. The use of radiant barrier roof sheathing considerably lowers solar heat gain into the homes, while high performance low-emissivity vinyl framed windows better reflect infrared heat. Intelligent Green homes also have R-13 insulation in exterior walls to maximize heating and cooling efficiency, water saving dishwaters, toilets and plumbing fixtures, and advanced techniques to ensure an infiltration-free building.
