RISMEDIA, July 4, 2008-Making its Northeast Florida debut, Kemick Homes recently unveiled a spectacular model home in the premier neighborhood of St. Johns Forest. Showcasing cutting-edge technology and energy-efficiency, the model introduces visitors to the green construction and quality finishes for which Kemick has become known.
“We are extremely pleased to build our first Northeast Florida homes in the unique community of St. Johns Forest and to bring Kemick’s signature style to this area,” said company President Larry Kemick. “We like our buyers to ask the question, ‘What’s under your roof?’ It is important for them to be aware of the various components of construction and design, and we take the time to walk them through each step of the process so they can be very educated about their home.”
Kemick Homes is known for building homes that are energy-efficient, storm resistant, healthy and low maintenance, and their model is no exception. The home showcases an insulation method known as attic encapsulation by Icynene that uses insulation to create a cool attic. This allows duct work to be located in a conditioned environment, which reduces the heat load on a home.
For its model’s floor plan, Kemick chose the four-bedroom, four-bathroom Majesty I with a bonus room and a three-car garage. The home’s beautiful French Country-style elevation, showcasing stucco and stonework on the exterior, opens into a unique wide entry-hall with attached foyer. Including a formal den, formal dining room, living room, and family room/kitchen combination, the home’s generous 3,373 square-foot design offers ample room for comfortable family living.
Twenty-inch porcelain floor tiles and profile wall tiles add richness to the interior, and the luxury touches of full-overlay wood cabinets and granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms enhance the home’s luxury detailing. A Kitchen Aid package, with a gas cooktop, built-in oven, dishwasher, disposal and an ENERGY STAR custom-depth, side-by-side refrigerator equips the kitchen with everything a homeowner could need.
The model home also has a spacious covered lanai, accessible from the master bedroom and family room, which offers spectacular views from the home’s cozy breakfast nook. A breathtaking pool, spa and outdoor kitchen complete the outdoor living area.
“One of our philosophies is that green construction does not have to be unattractive,” Kemick said. “The technology that comes with our homes is as appealing as our quality appointments, and we consider both to be equally important.”
Kemick uses an advance piping system which has an expected life span of at least 100 years. The company also incorporates an on-demand hot water recirculation system and a solar water heater that preheats the water before it enters the home.
The climate systems in Kemick homes are Puron-based and have fully programmable thermostat systems to provide ecological conservation and owner comfort. Outdoors, lawns and landscaped areas are treated with the environmentally friendly Borate and Sentricon systems for highly effective pest control.
In addition to the Majesty I, Kemick Homes is offering eight other floor plans ranging from 3,000 to 4,500 square feet on 80-foot homesites at St. Johns Forest. Prices start at $490,000.
