Renowned for its beauty, sun-filled Breezespace, 14-foot walls of windows and open floor plan, this architectural icon—previously only viewable west of the Rockies—is the model for the first Blu Homes development in New York State. Located in Columbia County, just two hours north of New York City and two and a half hours west of Boston, the development consists of 12 sustainably developed home sites, now available for sale, ranging from 6.8 to 24 acres overlooking the scenic Hudson Valley and the Catskills.
Grand Opening: Breezehouse East Coast Debut
Local developer Neil Costa partnered with Blu Homes—the exclusive homebuilder for the Blu Homes in Hudson Valley development—and conservancy groups to sustainably develop the project set amid woods, streams, ponds and lovely vistas. Watch the house unfold and meet the developer in this video.
"From beginning to end, working with Blu has been extremely easy," explained Costa. "I've built homes traditionally before and there are a million details you need to address. Building with Blu is completely different because Blu takes care of almost everything. This is simply a better way to build a home—or twelve!"
At the grand opening event, prospective homebuyers and modern design enthusiasts will have the opportunity to tour the beautiful 2,420 square-foot precision-built home. Designed by world-renowned architects, this three-bedroom, three-bath home boasts a spacious, light-filled indoor environment that connects seamlessly and elegantly with the natural landscape. Structural steel framing and advanced building science make it possible for Blu's homes to withstand extreme weather conditions, including high snow loads and wind gusts of up to 110 mph.
"With this project, Blu Homes is giving development living a green, high-tech makeover," said Blu Co-founder Maura McCarthy. "Based on the enormous response we've received so far, Blu's faster, easier, greener approach to building appeals to homebuyers and developers up and down the Eastern seaboard and nationwide. We've built a nationwide sales organization that is committed to responding to the demand."
Blu Homes are LEED Silver certifiable upon leaving the factory and are solar-ready. Beyond the standard green features that Blu includes in every home, such as recycled steel framing, radiant heat flooring, high R-value walls and energy-efficient appliances, Blu Homes can achieve net zero energy status, Energy Star rating and higher LEED certifications with the inclusion of other available green elements.
Like all Blu homes, the Hudson Valley Breezehouse was built in the Company's state-of-the-art California factory in approximately eight weeks, transported by truck across country, and then "unfolded" on site to reveal soaring ceilings, wide expanses of windows, and luxury finishes.
The development's lots and model home are being exclusively marketed and sold by Halstead Property Development Marketing.
