Live the Waterfront Life You’ve Always Wanted at Easton Village

photo

Every year, countless families make their way down to the beach or shore to soak up the sun and enjoy everything that makes the waterfront so special. But at the end of a long weekend or a short vacation, most people head back home, leaving everything they love about life on the Eastern Shore behind.

The waterfront lifestyle you love doesn’t have to be temporary because you can find a beautiful new home on the waterfront for the ideal price at Easton Village.

This community is designed for exceptional year-round living — featuring an extraordinary collection of amenities, including a community clubhouse, fitness center, pool, bocce court, marina, kayak launch, a 6-acre park and more.

Easton Village is conveniently located in Talbot County, just minutes from St. Michaels and its schools, shopping, dining and entertainment venues. The Chesapeake Bay and Easton Airport are right nearby, too.

But what would an extraordinary waterfront life be without an extraordinary home? That’s why we build innovative single-family homes with main-level owner’s suites, volume ceilings, gourmet kitchens and flexible floorplans.

Don’t let your waterfront excursion come to a close this summer — live it all year long at Easton Village.

Heritage Shores Named One of the 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the U.S. by Where to Retire Magazine

Heritage Shores

If you’ve been looking for the best place to call home when you retire, you should definitely consider Heritage Shores, according to Where to Retire magazine.

Heritage Shores, our 55+ Active Lifestyle Community located in Bridgeville, Delaware, was selected for Where to Retire magazine’s “The Short List: 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the U.S.” for 2017.

As “The Authority on Retirement Relocation,” Where to Retire carefully selects 50 master-planned communities from across the country for the prestigious “Short List” based on a community’s pricing, amenities, home designs, location and a variety of other features.

Heritage Shores’ inclusion was even more noteworthy because it was the only community in the tax-friendly state of Delaware to make it onto the list.

We created Heritage Shores specifically with active, energetic home shoppers in mind, and, as the developer of this 55+ community, we couldn’t be more honored to have received this revered designation.

It’s not just the exciting amenities that set this community apart, though. Sure, you get the 18-hole championship golf course, a 28,000-square-foot clubhouse, swimming pools, on-site restaurants and so much more. But you also get an innovative, stylish Brookfield home that features unparalleled main-level living, so you can be as active as you want and enjoy the most accessible new home possible.

Want to learn more about the low-maintenance, high-energy lifestyle you can find at Heritage Shores? Visit the official community page on our website today.

Getting Burned by High Energy Bills? Follow These Money-Saving Tips.

Save Money This Summer

Don’t let rising temperatures take control of your energy bills this summer.

Want to keep more of money in your pocket? Take charge of your home’s energy efficiency with these 3 easy-to-follow tips:

Tip 1: Take Care to Keep the Heat Out

If you’ve lived in your home for a while or purchased a resale home, you’ll need to take some time checking around the house for areas that might be letting warm air in. Applying caulk and weather stripping around doors and windows can help mitigate money-draining drafts.

Tip 2: Keep Your Thermostat in Check

Whether your home is new or old, your thermostat is going to be one of the most important tools in the fight against high energy bills. Keep the difference in temperature between outside and inside at a minimum by setting your thermostat to the highest comfortable temperature — you’ll use your AC less, which means you’ll save money.

Programmable thermostats, like those that come standard in every one of our homes, allow you to keep your home’s temperature in check, whether you’re home or not. And with our Smart Home packages, setting the temperature in your home is as simple as using your voice!

Tip 3: Always Think About Appliances

Think about your home’s major appliances. Older appliances have the potential to suck up energy even when you’re not using them!

If your appliances are old, outdated or just using too much energy, consider making the switch to ENERGY STAR® appliances, like those included in every new Brookfield Residential home. These appliances ensure that you won’t be wasting lots of energy when they’re not in use, saving you money in the process.

Of course, you won’t have to worry about having to follow these tips if you own a Brookfield Residential home.

We construct innovative, energy-efficient homes that balance livability and affordability in amazing ways. In addition to utilizing ENERGY STAR appliances and programmable thermostats, we install things like water-saving bath faucets and shower heads, as well as low-e windows that help keep your home cooler in the summer.

With Brookfield Blue, our energy-efficiency initiative, we also offer a variety of sustainable and renewable energy features, such as solar panels and geothermal heating and air conditioning, in select communities. But we’re always innovating, so that’s just the beginning!

When you buy a new Brookfield Residential home, you get the peace of mind and energy savings that you just can’t find in a resale home and even most standard new homes.

Just how much more efficient are the homes that we build? Visit our Energy Efficiency page to see how we stack up against other builders and resale homes.

Soak up the Sun and Save Money at Oakview Village This Summer

Oakview Village

What if every time you were out enjoying a sunny summer day, your home was saving you money and creating its own clean energy?

At Oakview Village, that’s just what the homes are doing.

We know it’s not easy finding a home that has all the stylish features you’ve always wanted while also giving you the energy efficiency that helps you save money all year long. But that’s the idea behind the townhomes we build at Oakview Village, a private, gated community in Glen Burnie, MD.

Although every home we build in every one of our communities offers a number of energy-efficient features, such as low-e windows, Energy Star® appliances and programmable thermostats, we include solar panels on all of the homes we build at Oakview Village.

Our partnership with SolarCity at this community means is that residents get to turn the power of the sun into clean, sustainable energy for their innovative new homes. And most importantly, that means they save money while also doing their part to save the planet, too.

We don’t think you don’t have to give up any of your stylish sensibilities to live more efficiently and responsibly, though. That’s why we upgrade these townhomes with luxurious features and contemporary finishes, such as lofted ceilings, hardwood floors and eye-catching exteriors.

Want to learn more about the solar panels and townhomes available at Oakview Village?
