Brookfield’s New Energy-Efficient PureBlue Concept Home Opening Soon


Are you ready to Experience the Innovation?

We’re just a few weeks away from opening the doors to the most ambitious eco-friendly home project in our company’s long history.

PureBlue is a new concept home built to test the limits of innovation, efficiency and design, to explore the latest technologies and find out how they fit with the way homeowners want to live today, tomorrow and far beyond. The lessons we learn will help us build better, healthier, more energy-efficient homes.

To learn more about the PureBlue project and watch videos of the home taking shape, visit http://www.BrookfieldDC.com/PureBlue.

“We set out to build a Net Zero home, but we knew it had to be more than that,” said Robert C. Hubbell, president of Brookfield’s Washington division. “In addition to being extraordinarily energy efficient, it had to be beautiful and functional. The PureBlue Home is all of those things. We challenged our team to build something truly innovative, and they did not disappoint.”

The list of next-generation features included in The PureBlue Home is long and detailed. The features are focused on improving energy efficiency, making life easier and healthier for residents, and building upon Brookfield’s reputation for smart, stylish design. Among the favorites:

Supreme Energy Efficiency

  • Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) replace stud-framed walls, creating a stronger, tighter seal to bring greater efficiency and savings.

  • The hybrid hot water heater provides outstanding performance while requiring significantly less energy.

  • A high-efficiency HVAC system ensures clean, healthy air is always circulating.

Harnessing Nature’s Resources

  • Solar panels on the roof harness the sun’s energy and minimize consumption.

  • The grey water system minimizes flooding, erosion and runoff, while reducing water usage.

Sustainable and Beautiful

  • The stunning kitchen bar top has been repurposed from a black walnut tree removed during development and fashioned by furniture artist Vicco Von Voss.

  • Eco Veneer bamboo cabinets provide a sleek, beautiful look created with strong, sustainable materials.

  • Landscaping is highlighted by native, low-water plants that are easily maintained with a drip irrigation system.

“The PureBlue Home really is a glimpse into the future of homebuilding, not just for Brookfield but for the entire industry,” Hubbell said. “We’re excited to see this home coming to life and looking forward to all the ways we can use lessons learned from this project to build the very best homes we can for all of our homeowners.”

Buying A New Home vs. Resale? Make the Smart Move.

We see it a lot with first-time visitors to our model homes. They’re intrigued by the idea of buying a newly built home, but they’re still weighing the benefits of buying new versus resale.

Here are a few of the reasons we share with them about why buying new is the best bet:

A New Home Means You Get Exactly What You Want

When you build a home, you have a say in the floorplan, the overall style and all the design finishes. You’ll choose the flooring, the cabinets, the fixtures, even the colors on the walls. It’s your home and your choice.

A New Home Means Less Maintenance

Maybe it’s a new roof or a new air conditioning unit. Maybe the carpets need to be replaced. When you buy resale, it’s going to happen. And sooner than you’d like. When you buy a Brookfield home, everything is new and high-quality. You can find comfort in that.

A New Home Comes With a Peace of Mind Warranty

A Brookfield home comes with a two-year builder’s warranty and a 10-year limited warranty. That gives you a level of security you just can’t get with resale.

A New Home Saves Money With Energy Efficiency

Every home Brookfield builds exceeds the standards of energy efficiency, meaning you’ll see savings on your utilities every month. You can even choose to ramp up the efficiency with options from our Brookfield Blue portfolio.

A New Home Can Be Ready Right Now

If you love the idea of a new home, but not the thought of waiting for it to be built, choose from our wide selection of Move-In-Now Homes. You’ll find the designs and the features you want, and you can move in right away.

It’s your home and it’s your choice. When you’re ready, make the smart move.

Show Off Your Home with a Fun Holiday Party

When we see streams of guests walking to the front door of homes, we know holiday party season is in full swing. Brookfield homes are always built with entertaining in mind—from the open, flowing home designs to the fantastic kitchens and plenty of extra space for overnight guests.

Whether you’re already living in a Brookfield home or still looking for your perfect spot, here are a few tips for hosting a fun, low-stress holiday party this year.

Make a List

Start with the guest list, then plan the food, drinks, decorations and entertainment. Beginning your preparation early will help you avoid frantic, last-minute scrambling. At least some of it.

Decorate from the Outside In

It could be as simple as a tasteful wreath on the front door, but you’ll want something outside the home that warmly welcomes your guests. From there, make sure there’s a little something to dress up each of the rooms where the party will take place.

Create a Reason to Roam

Give your guests an incentive to mingle and explore your home. Maybe the buffet is in the dining room, the appetizers are in the kitchen and soft music and comfy seats can be found in the family room.

Something for Everyone

Offer a nice variety of food and drinks. Balance all the high-calorie desserts with some light fruits and vegetables. And if you’re serving alcohol, be sure to have a variety of non-alcoholic options, too.

Don’t Forget to Have Fun

You want to be a make sure your guests are happy, and the first step is to enjoy the party yourself. Your guests will take their cue from you.

Good luck and happy holidays!
