Greenhaven: LEED-Certified Eco-Friendly Home in Atlanta

Greenhaven. The name of this home is meant not only to evoke peaceful green glades, but also reminds people of its green credentials. Greenhaven is located in Marietta, Ga., in the Chelsea Landing neighborhood. Chelsea Landing is the first green neighborhood in East Cob County.

The design of Greenhaven homes was conceived by Pace Homebuilders. The “Green Team” they brought together designed Greenhaven as a home that is livable and green. Greenhaven is certified by the US Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes program. Its three floors are filled with luxurious extras like a home theatre and private office.

greenhaven_interiorTo help Greenhaven get the high-end look that today’s eco-conscious homeowner desires, Pace Homebuilders used a Marvin Entry Door and windows by Integrity® from Marvin Windows and Doors.

Marvin Entry Doors are handcrafted from the finest wood and are available in completely customized options for curb appeal. The classically rustic look of the door in Greenhaven sets the entry for the luxurious living within.

greenhaven_integrityIntegrity is one of Marvin’s sister brands. Made of a pultruded fiberglass called Ultrex, Integrity windows are durable and high-performing. Not only is Ultrex eight times stronger than vinyl and as strong as steel, but it is made of silica sand, a virtually unlimited natural resource. It’s even green in its manufacturing process, made in the only pultrusion facility in compliance with the 1990 Clean Air Act.

Anyone lucky enough to buy a Greenhaven home will get to live in a house that truly is green and truly beautiful.
