Soleil Laurel Canyon Offers EarthCraft Certified Homes

Wednesday, October 05, 2011 / Soleil Laurel Canyon

Canton, Ga. -- Soleil Laurel Canyon values the fact that active adult home buyers are interested in energy-efficient, eco-friendly and healthy living. Now, those buyers will be able to purchase an EarthCraft-certified home in the Canton master-planned community.

"We noticed more and more home buyers selecting upgraded insulation and other features to reduce energy costs," said Evan Cramer, development manager of Active Lifestyle Communities. "Offering EarthCraft-certified homes emphasizes our commitment to give home buyers exactly what they are looking for: quality construction, smart design, energy-efficiency and increased indoor air quality for a healthier home."

The first EarthCraft home is currently under construction. All home designs can be upgraded to be EarthCraft certified, allowing home buyers to select the ideal plan for their lifestyles while insuring they are energy efficient.

EarthCraft certified homes provide a number of benefits, including lower utility costs, enhanced indoor air quality, increased comfort and reduced home maintenance. On average, EarthCraft certified homes sell for a higher price than the average home at the same list price and sell more quickly than conventionally built homes. EarthCraft was established in 1999 by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and Southface. For more information on EarthCraft, visit

At Soleil active adult buyers can purchase homes that range from 1,500 to almost 3,000 square feet and are priced between $200,000 and the high $400,000s. Yard maintenance, a 24-hour staffed security gatehouse, and home security monitoring are included in the association fees. This environment, which also includes a clubhouse with heated indoor saline pool, billiards parlor, gourmet teaching kitchen, fitness center and aerobics studio, library, two card rooms and an arts and crafts studio, is why Cramer says Soleil is truly one of Atlanta's best active adult communities. Where to Retire Magazine even rated Soleil Laurel Canyon as one of the country's top 50 master planned communities for active adults. A performing arts center, outdoor amphitheatre, outdoor lagoon-style pool, six clay tennis courts, full-time tennis pro, walking trails, a greenhouse and neighboring golf course round out the long list of amenities.
