Hot Property: An Award-Winning, Energy Efficient Home in Addison

The LEED Platinum-certified new build produces more energy than it uses.

Our “Hot Property” series doesn’t often take us to Addison, but this home is well with the journey.  Situated across from White Rock Creek, 14631 Winnwood Road is LEED Platinum-certified, a distinction more often associated with commercial buildings. And much like TreeHouse’s groundbreaking flagship off Walnut Hill Lane, the 5G Studio-designed residence is net-positive, meaning it creates more energy than it consumes.

There’s a 6,000-gallon rainwater cistern, the panoramic windows are low solar heat gain coefficient, and each expertly insulated room boasts its own thermostat. According to AIA, “the home is positioned so the front third of the property becomes a sculpted extension of the conservation project.” All good things! But no matter how eco-friendly and energy efficient a building may be, a home still has to feel like, well, home.

Fortunately, this award-winning home does not fall short in the beauty department. Just over 4,600 square feet are thoughtfully laid out on the shaded, .7-acre lot. Stained white oak floors keep the mostly monochromatic interior from ever feeling too industrial. A white marble bathroom—complete with a TV hookup, a vent-free fireplace, and geometric tiles—and a Bulthaup German kitchen stocked with Thermador and Bosch appliances make the home feel as luxurious as it is energy efficient.
