1108 Ingersoll Street - Downtown

Builder: Fortune Builders
Selling Price: $189,900 Plus GST and Land
Type: 2-Storey

There were a couple of factors that set this house apart from the others before even going for a visit. First, it is located in a long established residential neighbourhood and therefore would be uniquely new among older houses. It is essentially an infill project that started from scratch and created a brand new home in an established location. Second, the descriptor of it being a “Zen” home intrigued me.

The new style of thinking did not disappoint. The builder was definitely thinking of 21st century living when he created this home. Green building materials, sustainability and energy efficiency were the orders of the day. The greywater system ensures responsible water useage.

The rooftop deck is a terrific idea that will get lots of use. It is quite spacious and essentially creates a patio or deck that would normally require a larger yard to be placed on the second floor outside the house. Privacy and practicality rule the day here.

Style is not sacrificed due to green here. There is a sense of comfort that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

  1. Thanks for the positive comment. It's nice to hear from people like you who appreciates emerging technology in the building industry. We tried to incorporate the concept of a "Zen House" with the modern technology without sacrificing the style.

    Watch for another "Zen House" in Bridgwater Forest (hopefully) complete with Geothermal heating and cooling to complement the Greywater system. Our company is fully committed to Quality, Style & Innovation.
