Introducing Pine Meadows, an exceptional group of five rare building lots, all with direct access to 105 acres of protected land that the city of Northampton has partnered with Mass Audubon to transform and preserve. Under their stewardship, this former golf course will return to its natural state with forests, meadows, and wetlands, where diverse bird populations and other species will continue to make their homes. Former golf cart paths have become lovely walking, birding, biking, and hiking trails, accessible from just outside your door.
Each site offers impressive views, and are thoughtfully designed and engineered By Berkshire Design Group and Wright Builders to accommodate easy access and solar exposures for the required Net Zero Energy homes.
Wright Builders is the preferred builder for this development because of their extensive involvement with the project as well as experience in building beautiful, sustainable, Zero Net Ready homes.
Each site is designed and engineered to be Net Zero , a HOA performance requirement for homes in this exclusive development.
What does this mean for a home buyer at Pine Meadows? It simply means that your new high performance home will be designed and planned to be energy efficient and a healthier living environment. For example, they will be conditioned by state-of-the-art, electric powered, air source heat pump technology for heating and cooling and for producing domestic hot water. Our home designs include products that reduce the buildings carbon footprint and provide a draft free enclosure. With these approaches, combined with proper orientation for solar photovoltaic electricity generation, we expect the home to produce as much electricity as it uses over the course of the year.
The approach provides for exceptional comfort, resiliency, natural lighting, and a sense of well-being and belonging in this natural place.
The developer’s values and desire to protect the natural landscape are expressed in guidelines on home size and exterior materials, with the goal of enhancing your living experience with the adjoining conservation lands and the overall vistas from both on and off the properties.
Proximity to the cities of Northampton and Easthampton, services, privacy, unique viewsheds and direct access to over 100 acres of preserved land makes each homesite spectacular in its own way.
