Kirkwood Green Marks Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods’

First EarthCents New Home Community

With the recent opening of Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods’ newest community – Kirkwood Green in the trendy Lake Claire-Historic Kirkwood district of Atlanta – so follows the debut of Acadia’s first EarthCents New Home Community. In the simplest terms, EarthCents is an extensive series of energy efficiency programs designed by Georgia Power to promote the smart use of energy, protect the environment, and ultimately save their customers money. New home buyers are encouraged to buy an EarthCents New Home for a variety of energy saving features that benefit both the homeowner and the environment.

Kirkwood Slab Elevation Effective insulation, high-performance windows, tight construction and tight ducts, efficient heating and cooling equipment, and 3rd party independent testing are all hallmarks of an EarthCents New Home. These measures ensure that an EarthCents Home will be one of the most energy-efficient houses on the market today – far more efficient than one built to standard building codes – saving homeowners a combination of energy and money year after year.

“We are extremely proud to take part in Georgia Power’s EarthCents Program,” explains Gregg Goldenberg, President and CEO for Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods. “As a ‘New Builder for a New Time,’ we recognize the fact that energy efficiency and green building practices are the wave of the future in our industry. Not to mention the importance of their benefits to our homeowners and the planet.”

In addition to eco-friendly measures, EarthCents New Homes in Kirkwood Green reflect Charleston Row House-inspired designs featuring three stories comprised of 3-bedrooms, 3.5-bathrooms, private decks and open living spaces. Priced from the low $400,000’s, homes in Kirkwood Green will boast spacious owner’s suites, 2-car garages, mudroom, office space, and more. Outward appearances in this exciting new Dekalb County community are also a celebration of the environment with beautiful landscaping throughout and a cobblestone round-about surrounding a park-like setting with benches at the heart of the 14-home enclave.

The community’s intown address provides Kirkwood homeowners with easy access to some of Atlanta’s most beloved destinations – including Decatur, Candler Park, The Carter Center, Little Five Points, Virginia Highlands, Grant Park, and Fernbank Science Center, among others.  Kirkwood Green is also minutes to local world-class restaurants and an eclectic array of shops.
