December 2017 – Brightwater Homes is pleased to announce that its new neighborhood, Sweet Apple located along Ebenezer Road in Milton, will be the first residential neighborhood in Georgia to include solar panels as a standard feature for all of its homes. Partnering with Atlanta-based Hannah Solar, Brightwater will offer a 10 to 12 solar panel roof array as an included feature for every new home at Sweet Apple as well as make available further solar options ranging from additional panels to Tesla® Powerwall back-up battery storage systems.
From its earliest planning, Sweet Apple has exemplified Brightwater’s unique dedication to sustainability and environmental stewardship, a core value for the company born initially out of the personal commitment of founding partner Charlie Bostwick. Sweet Apple’s vision is conservation-centered with a focus on preserving the striking natural beauty of the site’s picturesque green spaces, including more than 100 identified species of native plants and trees as well as a lake and creek. In fact, more than 20 acres of the neighborhood’s natural space are protected in perpetuity, crisscrossed only by miles of wooded trails for homeowners to enjoy. “We’re so excited about Sweet Apple and all the history and richness in this land. From the beginning, we knew we wanted to honor and celebrate that,” says Bostwick. “What better place to take this step forward by making solar a standard part of our offerings for new home buyers for the first time.”
In the midst of this idyllic pastoral setting, Brightwater will initially offer 21 individually inspired and designed custom homes that will pair the timeless character of farmhouse architecture outside with modern features inside incorporating the company’s characteristic emphasis on green-friendly and high-efficiency construction. Site sensitive design will preserve existing trees on homesites as well in keeping with the neighborhood’s natural setting. Home prices at Sweet Apple are expected to range from the $800s to more than $1 million. For more information on Sweet Apple, call 678-578-6819.
